Our wedding photographer Michael had such a fun time capturing Steph and Brian’s wedding day at Highland Manor in Apopka! Steph and Brian planned a morning wedding at Highland, which is always is a fun challenge for us, as we’ve photographed here plenty of times, but the lighting is completely different! We arrived a bit early, so we caught the tail-end of bridal preparations, after Karmel Design Team took care of Steph’s hair and makeup services! Check out the beautiful floral bouquets provided by Raining Roses! Once she and Brian were ready, we set them up on the staircase and then outside for their first look. We had Brian stand with his back to the door, and we had Steph step behind him and tap him on his shoulder, prompting him to turn around and see his beautiful bride for the first time! It was such a sweet moment, and we followed with portraits around Highland as the ceremony time approached!
Their outdoor wedding ceremony took place underneath Highland Manor’s iconic, historic live-oak tree! Their personal friend officiated the ceremony, and they shared, tears, laughs, a ring exchange, and of course the kiss in front of their closest family/friends! After their ceremony, we captured family portraits, and a few more portraits of Steph and Brian before heading inside for their indoor ballroom wedding reception! They both shared a choreographed first dance together (rehearsed with Arthur Murray Dance Centers) which was incredibly sweet, and they danced with their parents both at the same time! Their wedding reception was an absolute blast, with Elegant Entertainment providing all of the kicking music! They also incorporated fun moments like a legit lip-sync battle; guys vs girls! We also captured a hilarious shoe game, those are always a great time! Raining Roses Productions did such a great job with the wedding flowers, and of course we have Dubsdread Catering to thank for the delicious wedding dinner! Check out the beautiful wedding cake designed by It’s Tasty Too as well! At the end of the wedding reception, they said goodbye to their guests through a fun bubble exit! We can’t thank Steph and Brian enough for bringing us with them on their wedding day and letting us share their love story! Congratulations you two!
