There wasn’t much that I didn’t absolutely LOVE about Deb and John’s wedding. A small, intimate garden ceremony at Leu Gardens in Winter Park, followed by a delicious dinner at Luma in their wine basement. A gorgeous classic, vintage cut, slim gown with simple, beautiful bouquets. Truffle popcorn.

To date, it’s been my shortest wedding, but like I tell brides who contact me about shooting their wedding – it’s not about getting the photographer who will give you the most hours… it’s about getting the photographer who will give you the best photos. Deb knew she wanted great photos, and if that meant 3 hours of coverage, she knew we would do it!

Their wedding was highlighted by small little details – giving a nod to their friends and family that they love so much. Deb’s mom walked her down the aisle and favors were placed on the tables in loving memory of  her father. Deb’s beaded handbag was passed down from her grandmother, with a little note saying she hoped Deb could use it someday.

I honestly loved every moment with Deb and John’s amazing family and friends. And I loved the truffle popcorn John made me eat just before we left :) I know Deb has been patiently waiting for her blog post, so I’m more than excited to share their gorgeous wedding!
