Here are what I believe are the highlight images from Stephanie & Francis’ Wedding day at Heaven Event Center in Orlando. You may remember these two from their stunning Winter Park engagement session which was also recently featured on the Truly Engaging blog. I had met these two sweeties through a mutual good friend of ours, Lucy, who is in my close circle of girlies. I was overjoyed when Stephanie contacted me once she and Francis started planning their Wedding. We initially met up to discuss all things Wedding and then around later in the year we were able to get to know each other better during that stunning engagement session. I hadn’t photographed Heaven Event Center in a couple of years but I know the grounds rather well and love any venue that “has it all”. It’s certainly the definition of “blank canvases” that you can pretty much transform into whatever Wedding dream you have which I love. Stephanie & Francis definitely went for a modernly elegant feel. They have a couple of options as far as getting ready areas there but Stephanie and Francis opted to complete this portion of the day at a nearby hotel. Sadly, Heaven Events isn’t known for it’s exterior options as far as photographs go for before and after so we decided to head to Cypress Grove Estate which was a huge risk because of the lighting situation and because of the amount of time we had post Ceremony. However, after much planning ahead and a lot of trust on Stephanie and Francis’ part, I think it all worked out really well. This day ended up being such a joy to photograph and boy, did they have party during the reception?! I don’t think I’ve photographed a reception with that much fun and energy ever. Great end to a gorgeous day!
