One of my favorite projects of 2015 has been teaming up with the fabulous ladies at Solutions Bridal House to shoot some of their favorite designer gowns in some of the most beautiful venues in Orlando. Every shoot had a bit of a different feel, different models and styles.
All of these beautiful gowns and jewelry can be purchased at Solutions Bridal in Orlando (right in front of the Mall at Millenia). One of their amazing stylists can work with you to design your wedding day look from top to bottom (which I absolutely love!). They’re experts at knowing body types and what styles work best for you, and pairing that style with your overall vision for your wedding day! Their team is incredible, and if you’re planning to look for wedding gowns, you should definitely stop in!
Also, a huge thanks to our expert makeup and hair artist, Simone from Makeover Station. She did the hair and makeup for each shoot!

I’ve worked with brides at Casa Feliz since I first got started as a wedding photographer here in Orlando. This historic home in Winter Park has a beautiful atmosphere and outdoor space for weddings and gorgeous Winter Park scenery for photos! It’s full of old Spanish charm, with mosaic tiles and fountains all around.

Ritz Carlton Grande Lakes
It’s a lot of girl’s dreams to get married at the Ritz, and at the Grand Lakes in Orlando you have the best in resort style! Their ballrooms have recently been completely renovated and they are absolutely stunning – plus you have beautiful outdoor spaces that you can hold you ceremony and reception (if you’re not much of a ballroom person).

If you’re wanting a downtown wedding, Citrus Club is your spot! They have breathtaking views of the city (especially at night – it’s really incredible) and their ballroom has ceiling height windows that stretch the entire length of the room so you can really feel like you’re in the heart of Orlando!
Cypress Grove is the perfect spot if you’re a Southern girl and love a plantation-style venue situated on a beautiful lake with a gazebo, gardens and fireplaces. The surrounding grounds are beautiful – especially the road leading towards the home – it’s tree-lined canopy of Spanish moss is the perfect photo spot!
