James and Jessica were married at Noah’s Event Venue in Orlando! Pretty tree-lined streets lead to a brick building nestled in more trees and right next to a beautiful lake. I first met Jessica in the bridal room to capture all of the bridal details while the girls finished getting ready. The lacey fabric, crystal covered shoes and rose gold jewelry had me on cloud 9! SO beautiful! When it came time for the ceremony, everyone was seated in the outdoor ceremony area. Being that it was the end of March, the weather was perfect as it was not too hot and the sky was bright blue with hardly a cloud in sight! When Jessica came walking down the aisle… all of their friends and family’s eyes were on her, her bridesmaids looked at her with such love and James had the absolute biggest grin! She was stunning! The two exchanged vows underneath the wooden pergola, shared their first kiss, and then made their way back down the aisle-now, as husband and wife. ♥
I think my favorite part of the Winborne Wedding was the reception. Anyone who knows me in my personal life knows that I tend to be a more quiet and reserved person, so usually receptions aren’t what I look forward to the most. But James + Jessica’s friends and family were just so close and had so much fun together, that it was hard not to feel like you were just one of the party! James’ mother made the funnest grand entrance, and everyone cheered as she came out twirling and dancing around in her long sequenced gown!! But my favorite moment of all was when Jessica and her mother helped her dad up out of his wheel chair and they all shared the sweetest father-daughter dance together. It brought tears to my eyes, and I’m sure everyone else’s.
James and Jessica, thank you so much for allowing me to play such a special role in your wedding day. It was obvious to me in just those few short hours, how lucky you are to have friends and family that love and support you so. And it has been my pleasure getting to know the two of you and to be there for such a sweet part of your love story. I wish you many more years of love and happiness. ♥
