Bold orange hues, subtle gray colors, and a modern chevron design made up the “brand” for Amanda and Alexandre’s wedding. And quite fitting for their style. We met our lovely bride at the swanky Grand Bohemian hotel to begin documenting their story. Bold, directional window-light mixed with deep red velvet couches and drapes made it a very dramatic setting for Amanda’s getting ready portraits. Which I think blended perfectly with the style of their wedding. Amanda and Alex exchanged vows at the lovely Rollins Chapel in Winter Park, Alex’s college Alma Mater.
Over joyed with emotion and happiness, Amanda and Alex were ear to ear as they walked down the aisle together as newlyweds. It was time to party and celebrate! After some fabulous “city chic” portraits downtown, we headed to the 20th floor of The Citrus Club to begin photographing all of the unique details of their reception. Floor to ceiling windows, drum chandeliers, gray linens, and large vases boasting of bright orange tulips and roses filled the room, perfecting Amanda and Alex’s vision and style. Guests cheered on the happy couple as they were officially introduced as husband and wife. After many heart-felt toasts and a few happy tears shed, the celebration continued throughout the evening with a lot of dancing and a bouquet toss. The party concluded with a farewell showering of orange and ivory rose petals on Amanda and Alex as they quickly hopped in the elevator and headed to their honeymoon in Italy the next day. I’m so happy for you both! And thank you for giving me the honor of documenting such an important and beautiful moment in your lives. Xoxo -Abby
