November 5, 2011 | The Peabody, Orlando
You didn’t think I’d let Monday slip away without another gorgeous wedding to blog, did you?
Jessica and Michael Joseph (MJ) got married back in November and I was in girly heaven! Shoes, jewelry, gown… I was smitten with everything Jess had selected! Although I wasn’t the least bit surprised – Jess was brought up by a fashion savvy mom who worked in the fashion publishing field for years. So from the second I met her and her mom at a Starbucks downtown, I knew it would be an amazing day.
If you saw their gorgeous engagement session, you would have heard that they definitely keep it all in perspective! In case you’re not in to clicking – here’s my favorite part from that post:
As a doctor living in New York, and a lawyer living in Orlando – they have the ultimate long distance relationship. But one of the things I will always remember the most about this adorable two-some is this little note from MJ, “Yes…managing a long-distance relationship (now, engagement) can be trying, but the thought of spending the rest of my life with her keeps me going.”
Jess and MJ used a classic color combo of eggplant, silver, black and white. The Peabody was an amazing location for Jess to get ready and for the couple’s formal photos.
A day of sweet, classic love was exactly what the doctor ordered!
(I swear I thought of that with no pun intended!)

Shoe heaven. Jess’s wedding shoes were a peep-toe Nina and her “after-party” shoes were sexy, strappy Badgley Mischka heels!
Her bridesmaids wore a metallic gray, floor-length gown and royal purple pumps
The detailing on Jess’s veil was impeccable. It was so flattering to her gown – it complimented it perfectly!
Every moment of Jessica going down the aisle was absolutely breathtaking. From the front, back or side…. she looked amazing.
St. Patrick’s Cathedral is one of my top 3 favorite church’s in Orlando to shoot in!
The Peabody was perfect for their formals because there are so many cool places to walk around. But by far, their Napa restaurant was my favorites!
We adored the cake that The Peabody made for Jess and MJ! It was so delicate and beautiful – and the flowers were awesome!
Loved this shot of Jess and her sister praying before dinner
Congratulations Jess and MJ! We had such an amazing day with you guys!
And, wherever you find yourselves (even if it’s NJ)… we wish you an amazing life of happiness!
