I loved Michelle and Paul’s wedding – such a great group of friends and family. It’s not often I meet someone taller than Courtney – until I met Paul, at 6′ 8″, he towered over all of us – but his personality was sweet was perfectly down to earth. And Michelle looked up at him with a tall amount of love! I included some of my favorites from their engagement session with their precious baby Mimi here too.
Last week I was lucky enough to work with Michelle as she is now a fab wedding planner! Check out Elle Cinder Designs. So fun to go from photographing her beautiful wedding to working with her on someone else wedding! Since she is so good about planning weddings, I asked her to help me write about her own – since she is good at that too! Happy Anniversary Michelle and Paul!
November 9th 2012 – one year ago, Paul and Michelle became husband and wife in the beautiful cathedral of Saint James Catholic Cathedral in Downtown Orlando Florida. The couple felt nothing but true love for one another as family and friends gathered to witness their vows. Michelle was breathtaking in her beaded, Madeline Gardner wedding gown, with Kate Spade gold glitter heels. Paul was handsome as ever in his tailored suit, purple patterned shirt and coordinating tie. The bridesmaids were lovely in unique deep plum Alfred Angelo Vintage Bridal cocktail dresses with stunning hair and makeup, provided by UnBridaled Beauty. The gentlemen impressed with matching tailored suits and completed their look with purple argyle socks – everyone looked great!
The reception was held at the Grand Bohemian Hotel and was full of class and style. The various shades of purple flowers, provided by Windermere Flowers & Gifts, accented the gold candelabra centerpieces creating a magnificent atmosphere. Paul and Michelle were overjoyed when greeted by guests upon their introduction as husband and wife! All of their friends and family in one place celebrating their special day, certainly a moment they will never forget!
The talented Darlene Wood created both the wedding cake and the groom’s cake. The gorgeous, rhinestone accented, three tiered butter cream wedding cake was absolutely beautiful and delicious. The groom’s cake was fantastic – a chocolate cigar box complete with the grooms monogram! The VIP chair signs hung from the gold chiavari chairs, provided by A Chair Affair, and the “For Richer or Poorer” lottery ticket favors were set on each place setting. The details were everywhere! White Rose Entertainment had the guests dancing the night away, while the Grand Bohemian servers made everyone feel like royalty! Voila Cinematic and Kelly Canova Photography captured the most precious moments of the evening and created memories the bride and groom will enjoy for years to come!
