Wedding Photographers Steven Miller and Michael recently captured the amazing wedding day of Jessica and Gina, at the Woman’s Club of Winter Park! We began the day with Jess and Gina’s bridal preparations at the Doubletree by Hilton Orlando Downtown, but with a bit of a unique twist! Instead of getting ready in separate bridal suites, they opted to get ready in the same room, which helped them relax and prepare for the big day! Their bridal hair and makeup services were provided by Summer Posey, and check out the gorgeous floral arrangements by Neriely Flower Designs!
Once they were both ready, we snuck Jessica outside in front of the wedding hotel, and brought Gina down shortly after to tap her shoulder and share an intimate first look together! This gives couples a wonderful opportunity to see each other before the ceremony and get most of the portraits captured as well, saving time post-ceremony and giving the couple a chance to enjoy cocktail hour for a change! We captured most portraits at the hotel, but then proceeded over to the Woman’s Club of Winter Park to finish our portraits and prepare for their ceremony!
Their outdoor wedding ceremony was the absolute sweetest! Jess and Gina formed two processional lines with their bridal parties, and proceeded to the alter at the same time, super different! Jess and Gina exchanged their vows with officiant Lisa Morgan, celebrated a sand ceremony, and of course sealed the deal with the all-important kiss!! We followed their ceremony with family portraits, and considering that we got all of their portraits already, let them relax and enjoy their cocktail hour!
Their indoor wedding reception also took place at the Woman’s Club of Winter Park, and it was definitely one to remember! DJ Dave Ziemba, who we’ve met at numerous Orlando City Soccer Club games, absolutely crushed the music, keeping their dance floor packed throughout the night! Publix created their cute wedding cake, and the bartenders and catering were provided by Tornatore’s. Jess and Gina celebrated their reception with a first dance, parent dances, a cake cutting, and two bouquet tosses, one of which we’re still waiting for the outcome lol!! It maaaaay have landed in the chandelier!! We also took a moment to sneak Jess and Gina outside during their reception for a few extra portraits outside! Special thanks to Callum, who played a great active role as wedding planner throughout the day!! Congratulations Jess and Gina, your wedding day and our friendship will ALWAYS have a place in our hearts, we cannot wait to see you both again soon! Enjoy this sneak peek, and thank you so much for letting us be a part of the wedding!!
