Photographer Nelson had such a great and wonderful day capturing Donna and Jimmy’s wedding at Casa Feliz! The day started off with Donna, the bride, getting her hair and makeup done by Beauty By Gina at her mom’s Airbnb. Once everyone was glammed up, they headed over to the venue where they met photographer Nelson! He captured the bride and groom’s details and photos of everyone getting the final touches together. Once Donna got into her dress, the couple exchanged gifts, then it was time for the first look! Nelson captured the first look at their beautiful courtyard right outside of the getting ready rooms. This was such a sweet moment, we always love seeing the couple’s reactions when they see each other for the first time on the wedding day. We then moved into couple’s portraits and did another first look with their adorable pups, Coco and Lobo! The couple then signed the Ketubah with Rabbi Sanford O and immediate family and witnesses, then it was time for the ceremony!
The ceremony was held on the back side of the house, which is always so absolutely gorgeous! The live music was performed by Christine MacPhail, the Orlando Harpist, and their wedding ceremony consisted of vows, traditional Jewish ceremony items, and of course sealed the deal with a kiss and breaking of the glass! After everyone walked back down the aisle, we captured family portraits, then more couples portraits around the venue. Donna was just GORGEOUS in that wedding gown!
Then, it was time for everyone to enjoy cocktail hour! At this time, Nelson captured detail shots of the décor in the dinner space. After this, everyone moved to the dinner space to witness the reception entrances and Donna and Jimmy’s first dance. Everyone enjoyed a delicious dinner catered by Arthur’s Catering, and it was time to get the party started! Atomic Entertainment kicked off the party with music and everyone was on the dance floor! After the couple cut the cake by 4 Rivers Specialty Cakes and danced a bit, Nelson snuck them outside for some epic night portraits around the venue. Donna and Jimmy hopped back on the dance floor, danced the night away, and all of their guests sent them off with a grand bubble exit! To Donna and Jimmy, we wish you nothing but love and happiness in your future! We are so thrilled that we got to be a part of their love story from the proposal through the wedding day! We’re sure this won’t be the last time we see them, but we are so appreciative of the journey we’ve shared so far! :)
