Blush Styled Wedding | Arundel Estate | Orlando Wedding Photographer

Earlier in the year, I was fortunate to be able to fit a beautiful styled wedding into my schedule. I had never participated in a styled shoot before and was very glad that I went. Taylor'd Southern Events put on quite a lovely afternoon for us. All the vendors and models came together and put together such a lovely shoot. And I can't say enough great things about the Arundel Estate. What a gem in the middle of Sorrento! Beautiful venue! If you're a bride planning an upcoming wedding in Central Florida, do check them out! You'll find a list of all the participating vendors below the photos.

Gainesville Wedding Sneak Peek | Jordan + Jared | Central Florida Wedding Photographer

God works in amazing ways. For a full week, Florida's forecast for Sunday showed 100% chance of rain through most of the day. Not just rain, but severe weather, damaging wind, possibility of tornados, lots of lightning... basically the stormiest day ever throughout the entire wedding. 

Held at the beautiful Clark Plantation, the plan was to have the ceremony outside amongst the picturesque oak trees and Spanish moss. Plans had to be changed, ceremony moved inside to where the reception would also be held. Thanks to a brilliant wedding coordinator, outstanding vendors, and two families full of love and support, the rain day plan was pulled together and we had a fantastic ceremony. Shortly after, as Dustin and I were swapping gear around for the reception, I felt a familiar warmth. Light started radiating through the rustic hall, illuminating the bride and groom at the head table. I took a step outside and the rain clouds had broken way to the loveliest sky. Yes! We would get a sunset! 

Jordan and Jared are the sweetest, humblest, most loving couple. We've been so lucky to be along to document this step in their lives. Jordan didn't have many requests for specific photos she wanted to have outside of standard wedding photos. She just wanted sunset photos at the tree-lined hill on the Clark Plantation property. As soon as I felt that sun on my face, I was so relieved that we would get the photos she was so excited for on their wedding day. I like to think the earlier-than-expected storm departure was God's wedding gift to the newly minted Petersens.

In preparation for their honeymoon, we wanted to get a quick blog up of sneak peek photos. A full blog post will follow in the coming weeks once the gallery is ready. So much thanks to the Petersen and Coyne families and best wishes to Jordan and Jared on a very long and happy life together.

Ohio Destination Wedding | Alex + Robert | Victoria DeMore Photography | Central Florida Wedding Photographer

Marriage is like making a great bottle of wine. You put in the right ingredients, work at it with love and patience, and you find yourself with a wine with a sweet bouquet that warms the soul. The Amos and Hallett families definitely have this concept down. Such warm, welcoming families that came together beautifully for Alex and Robert’s big day. Incredible people, loving, creative, talented. We found ourselves in the midst of musicians, artisans, hair stylists, possibly some dabbling comedians, so many people who blended together to make the day complete. It was a fun-filled, beautiful weekend capped by the amazing ceremony with perfect weather and a gorgeous bride.

You may remember Alex + Robert from their engagement photos earlier this year. We had the fortune of following them to Lancaster, Ohio to capture their wedding day at the beautiful Cheers Chalet. We pulled into the driveway shrouded in leafy trees and soon found ourselves driving past cozy looking cottages marking the way down to the beautiful chalet built out over a wood-circled lake. It is an absolutely stunning property. Perfect setting for a summer wedding.

So many special little details for Alex and Robert’s day that made it truly reflect who they are. Alex’s dad made the jewelry the bridesmaids and flower girls wore. Alex's horseshoe ring was beautifully custom created by Jewelry by Michael. Robert’s top had was reflected in the cake design. Marles had her doggie bed and spot of honor at the head table. The barn they put so much work and love into was represented in the wedding colors. Pops of sparkle. Delicious food and cake - all of which was gluten-free and so tasty. Never had gluten-free cake before? We wouldn't have known! Vanilla, chocolate and red velvet was so good! Choreographed first dance. And, well, since the horses couldn’t come to Ohio with them, Alex just had to make do!

We know these two put the same amount of love and hard work into everything they do. They are fiercely determined and dedicated to each other and their family and it was an honor to be able to capture that for their wedding day. Many amazing adventures await you!
