Favorite details & moments: Here is the gloriously lovely Wedding of Kristen & Michael which was held at Shades of Green Walt Disney Resort. I’ve photographed this venue one other time before and I have to say it is uniquely picturesque! They have a ton of photo ops and gorgeous backdrops all within walking distance of each other. I could easily photograph Weddings at this resort all the time. 🙂 One of my favorite things about this vacationland is that it’s very minimally decorated with Disney paraphernalia. Don’t get me wrong though, I absolutely LOVE me some Disney all day and everyday but for the more simple and understated Bride, Shades of Green is perfect at still giving you that knowingly friendly Disney “magic” but minus the extra princessy fluff . This was perfect for Kristen and Michael’s Wedding Day which was all kinds of elegant. I especially loved the Wedding colors they had picked out. Lots of gold and royal blue with tiny hints of soft pink came together beautifully. It’s Tasty Too also did a phenomenal job on Kristen and Michael’s Wedding cake. I mean, the reaction to their entire ballroom decor said it all really! Kristen’s “something old” was a fur shrug given to her by her grandmother. It was really lovely to capture the moment when Kristen’s Mother and Grandmother helped her put the shrug on over her bridal gown near the end of her getting ready process. I love those sweet sentiments my Brides naturally add into their day. Kristen & Michael were SO fun during their portraits. They both have a great sense of humor that had me and Laura (who helped second shoot this time) giggling a lot during the portraits. I am just completely overjoyed to have captured such an amazing event for this remarkable couple. Gorgeous day! 🙂
