Jen and Ben | Married

August 11, 2012 | Orlando, FL

Jen and Ben are like my little Ohio lovelies! I was so excited when they hired me to shoot their destination wedding here in Orlando at the amazing Gaylord Palms! And thank goodness for the venue – mid-ceremony it was practically pitch black outside, hot, muggy and rainy! Not that you’d ever know – because inside, we were cool, happy and ready for a great party!

One of the best things about bringing everyone you know away for your wedding, is that they’re in it for the long haul! Everyone was staying at the hotel, and it was so cool to just have everyone with us all evening for the reception! It made the party so much fun!

And the highlight was definitely closing out their night with a gorgeous fireworks show, just for the newlyweds!

Stay tuned for their beautiful Trash the Dress session that we did a few days later with their gorgeous white huskies. Oh, and she climbed a tree in her dress :) So awesome!
