Orlando Rooftop Wedding | Liz and Christian
What an amazing backdrop for Liz and Christian’s wedding – the Downtown Orlando skyline! We loved this wedding on top of the building where they work. They were so sweet and playful, some of my favorite photos are of them pretending to work and having fun in their offices! Congratulations Liz and Chris! xo

From Liz and Chris:
Describe your wedding day style in one sentence A downtown wonderland, filled with family and friends
Favorite memory of the day Seeing both sides of the family mingling, laughing and enjoying each other so much! Seeing our families become one big family was awesome. I also loved hearing Christian’s vows
Songs? The specific songs are a blur but my friend Caleb, the impromptu DJ, played some great crowd favorites and some of our favorites
Wedding day color scheme green, light pink, and rose gold
Describe your wedding planning process I spent the majority of my free time in the prior 6 months gathering and crafting decor, scheduling, and praying it wouldn’t rain on the day of (outside weddings are cool, but rain is not!) Christian and I also used Trello, a project management tool we use at work, to track our progress – I have learned it’s only way to keep him on track!
What advice would you give to future brides for their wedding day? DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF. Seriously. Your enjoyment will not be lessened by the center pieces not being exactly like how you pictured, trust me on that one
Most memorable moment during the planning process? The day before the wedding I called my sister Kit in a panic. After calming me down she invited me to have tea at Infusion -like a proper tea time with pastries and little sandwiches. I had such a nice time chatting and having tea, I was able to relax and we spent the rest of the day getting stuff done! I couldn’t have pulled it off without Kit and her boyfriend Ben, they were both extremely helpful on the day of, and the whole week leading up to, the wedding
What are you most looking forward to as a married couple? The future! We can’t wait to travel, get stronger as a couple, climb in exotic locations – and of course start a family (eventually).
Which moment are you the most excited to see in photos? The first look pictures!! Also candid moments between family members
What was your wedding inspiration? The city scape was really our biggest and best decoration, everything else really played second fiddle to the Orlando skyline. But I do think the gold in the decor played off the gold of the city lights nicely
Describe some of your favorite wedding details and how you came up with them I’m not sure if it got a lot of use, but we did a directional activity that told people what direction and how far away some places are from the venue. For example, a lot of our family is located Vermont, so I made a card that said “Vermont is x miles north!” I thought of this when our Uncle Larry came to visit and asked which direction Disney, UCF, i4, etc. were while walking around the venue. I thought the cards would be a fun way to connect everyone to the wedding location!
