Angel & Matthew | Walt Disney World Wedding

In the heart of Walt Disney World’s Epcot, amidst the enchanting setting of the Japan Pavilion, Angel and Matthew embarked on a journey of love and magic that transcended time and space. From an early morning ceremony filled with fairy tale moments to a joyous reception and a spectacular fireworks finale, their wedding day was nothing short of a dream come true. I am so thankful that I had the honor of capturing the magic and memories of their special day.

Before first rays of sunlight kissed the horizon, Angel arrived at the Japan Pavilion in a Cinderella’s horse-drawn carriage, a vision of grace and elegance. With Epcot’s iconic Spaceship Earth in view, she made her way down the aisle to join Matthew, her prince charming, for a pre sunrise ceremony that  was unforgettable.

Greeted by the  serene beauty of the Japan Pavilion, Angel and Matthew exchanged vows in the presence of their loved ones, with Matthew’s sister serving as their officiant. The Japan Pavilion held special significance for the couple and was the perfect choice for their ceremony.

As I reflect on Angel and Matthew’s wedding day, I am reminded of the power of love to create moments of pure magic and joy. Their celebration was a testament to the beauty of dreams coming true, and the joy that comes from sharing those dreams with the ones we love.

Following the ceremony, the celebration continued at the Living Seas inside Epcot, where Angel and Matthew were joined by a special guest – none other than Mickey Mouse himself! With a flourish of magic, Mickey surprised guests and helped the couple cut their wedding cake, adding an extra sprinkle of Disney charm to their joyous occasion.

Angel and Matthew’s reception was filled with charming touches inspired by the beloved movie “Up.” Their cake dazzled with an “Up”-themed topper, capturing the whimsy and adventure of Carl and Ellie’s journey. Guests were invited to leave their mark in an unconventional guest book adorned with “Up” balloons, symbolizing the couple’s shared dreams and aspirations. Adding to the Disney magic, Angel and Matthew introduced their guests to the enchanting world of Disney pin trading by gifting them special pins, fostering connections and creating lasting memories as they embarked on their own adventures.

As night fell over Epcot, Angel and Matthew hosted a magical dessert party to watch the fireworks illuminate the sky. Guests indulged in a delectable array of treats, including Mickey pretzels, popcorn, and the viral cheeseburger spring rolls. And then they toasted to the newlyweds and watched in awe as the night sky came alive with color and light.

In keeping with the spirit of adventure and fun, Angel and Matthew treated their guests to a “ride mix-in” experience after the dessert party. The entire wedding party, filled with laughter and excitement, embarked on a journey through the whimsical world of Ratatouille in Epcot. As they raced through the sights, sounds, and smells of Gusteau’s Parisian kitchen, they created memories that would last a lifetime, celebrating their love with a touch of Disney magic and whimsy.

Nestled in the heart of Atlanta, the Carl House provided the picturesque backdrop for Erica and Simon’s enchanting wedding day. From the outdoor ceremony to the intimate reception filled with cultural touches, every moment was a testament to their love and commitment to each other. As their photographer, I had the privilege of capturing the beauty and joy of their special day.

Before the ceremony commenced, Erica and Simon shared a tender first look under the charming gazebo at the Carl House. Surrounded by blooming flowers and the gentle rustle of leaves, the couple’s anticipation reached its peak as they laid eyes on each other for the first time that day. It was a moment filled with emotion and intimacy, as they exchanged smiles, whispered words of love, and embraced, savoring the quiet beauty of the moment before embarking on their journey down the aisle.

Adding an adorable and personal touch to the ceremony, Erica and Simon chose their two beloved Korean Jindo dogs as their ring bearers. With tails wagging and hearts full of love, these furry companions played a special role in their owners’ big day, bringing joy and laughter to all who attended.

Underneath the azure sky and surrounded by the lush greenery of the Carl House gardens, Erica and Simon exchanged vows in a heartfelt outdoor ceremony. The serene ambiance and natural beauty set the stage for a truly romantic union, as they declared their love in front of their closest family and friends.

For Erica and Simon, their reception was a time for connection and celebration in a more relaxed setting. Skipping the traditional dance floor, guests were encouraged to mingle and enjoy each other’s company, fostering an atmosphere of warmth and camaraderie that perfectly complemented the intimate setting of the Carl House ballroom.

As the sun began to set and the reception kicked off in the ballroom, Erica and Simon surprised their guests by changing into traditional Korean attire. Dressed in stunning hanboks, they paid homage to their heritage and celebrated their cultural roots in a beautiful and meaningful way.

Throughout the evening, the air was filled with moments of joy, laughter, and heartfelt conversations. From heartfelt toasts to shared memories, every interaction was a testament to the love and support surrounding Erica and Simon as they embarked on this new chapter of their lives together.

Leilani & Joshua | Atlanta Wimbish House Wedding

Leilani and Joshua’s love story unfolded against the stunning backdrop of downtown Atlanta, where the historic Wimbish House played host to their dream wedding. As their photographer, I had the pleasure of capturing every magical moment, from their heartwarming ceremony to the lively bubble exit that marked the beginning of their journey as a married couple.

The anticipation reached its peak as Leilani and Joshua shared a private first look at the bottom of the majestic staircase inside Wimbish House. The air was filled with excitement and emotion as they saw each other for the first time on this momentous day, setting the tone for the joyous celebration that awaited.

In a quiet and intimate moment, Leilani and Joshua chose to read their vows to each other in a private room. The exchange of heartfelt promises created a sacred bond that would carry them through a lifetime of love. 

Tony, the couple’s fur baby, took center stage as the ring bearer. Dressed for the occasion, Tony added a touch of whimsy to the festivities as he joined Leilani and Joshua for their second first look of the day. The love and joy radiating from this trio created an unforgettable scene that perfectly encapsulated the essence of their union.

Leilani and Joshua’s color palette was a tribute to the rich hues of fall jewel tones. The warm and vibrant colors complemented the season and added a touch of sophistication to every detail, from the decor to the bridal party’s attire. 

The iconic skyline of Atlanta served as a breathtaking canvas for Leilani and Joshua’s photoshoot. Against the backdrop of tall downtown buildings, their love radiated, creating timeless images that perfectly captured the essence of their special day.

Instead of the traditional rice or confetti, the couple opted for a whimsical bubble exit. As they walked hand in hand through a cascade of bubbles, the sheer joy on their faces reflected the happiness that surrounded them on this special day.

Leilani and Joshua discovered my photography through the recommendation of one of my past couples. It’s a testament to the power of love and connection – the ripple effect of capturing cherished moments that lead to new beginnings.

As I reflect on Leilani and Joshua’s wedding day, I am reminded of the beauty that unfolds when two souls unite. Their celebration was not just a wedding; it was a tapestry of love, laughter, and the promise of a lifetime together.

Wishing Leilani and Joshua a lifetime filled with as much joy as their wedding day!
