Orlando Wedding Photographers Steven Miller and Michael had such a great time capturing the wedding day of Nicole and Billy at Paradise Cove in Orlando!! This natural and scenic venue with sandy white beaches, swinging palms, and cypress trees create a wonderful backdrop for any wedding wanting that tropical feel! We began the day capturing Nicole’s bridal preparations within her private cottage at Paradise Cove! Her bridal hair and makeup services were provided by Once Upon a Beauty, and they were helpful in getting us some great prep photos! While Steven was with Nicole getting ready to do her first look with Dad, Michael walked over to meet with Billy at the Groom’s suite to capture some photos of him and his groomsmen getting ready and opening his gift from Nicole! Once Nicole was ready we stepped out briefly for a first look with Dad and then headed back inside to open her gift from Billy! After the happy tears from Billy’s gift, it was time for the first touch! This was such an emotional moment for both as they were only able to touch hands without seeing each other! It was a moment filled with happy tears and great anticipation for the coming wedding ceremony!
The ceremony was Officiated by Rev. Glynn Ferguson from Sensational Ceremonies which was held at Paradise Cove’s courtyard overlooking Lake Bryan! As their friends and families looked on Billy and Nicole recited their vows, exchanged their rings, said their I Do’s, kissed, and were pronounced as husband and wife! After the ceremony, we then captured their family portraits, a few bridal party pictures, and some personal portraits for the couple! Because Nicole and Billy are such big fans of the Disney’s movie Up, they added little hints of the theme throughout their wedding! One such hint was the cluster of colorful balloons that made the movie so distinctive and now will make Nicole and Billy’s wedding portraits even much more memorable! Once we were done we headed over to the pavilion for their outdoor wedding reception!
The reception was held at the pavilion and it looked gorgeous, bursting in color! All of the colorful tables featured such beautiful floral centerpieces which were designed by Clermont Florist and Wine Shop! The linens and the table cloths were provided from GBS Linens and added the colorful theme of the movie Up! The delicious dinner and drinks were provided by Millenia Catering while the Up-themed cake was designed by Barbra Mathis at Cake Lady Custom Cakes! And we can’t forget DJ Jim of Fyerfly Productions who provided the fun photobooth, all the wedding uplighting, and of course the kicking music throughout the night! It was especially sweet to see Billy’s grandma leading their wedding guests through a traditional Greek dance! After the speeches and cake cutting, we took the couple out for some fun night portraits before they said their farewells to all of their guests with a bubble exit good-bye! This was such an unforgettable wedding day, we thank Nicole and Billy so much for letting us share this special day with them both! We hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
