Kelly & James {Embassy Suites Downtown Orlando Wedding}

A beautiful bride, a dashing groom and sweet little flowers girls… it was bound to be a wonderful wedding!  Kelly and I, had met in passing, while photographing her nieces (the sweet flower girls) but I had not had the privilege of truly getting to know her. She is such a sweet, genuine woman with a giant heart!

The word “again” was said over and over humorously, throughout the day. The couple had actually been married more than a year, on their April 27th, 2013 wedding day. Military life makes you do things a bit different, sometimes.  For Kelly & James, it was an opportunity to celebrate their love for each other in a fun way, the second time around. Their vows were filled with tears, laughter and tears of joy as they cracked jokes with each other. My favorite was Kelly promising James she would start his car once a week, when he is away on deployments. Now that is a great wife!

Kelly & James had turned the beautiful Embassy Suites ballroom into a romantic stroll through Paris, with strings of lights above the dance floor and miniature Eiffel Towers on the tables.  Not sure if it was their romantic reception, but I could feel the love the guest had for this amazing couple. They are so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family to help them celebrate their special day, AGAIN!

Congratulations again and best of luck with your upcoming journeys!
