Valerie and Brian, married in Orlando

From the minute we spoke with Valerie and Brian we were excited about their wedding. They had a clear vision and an eye for detail and we knew everything about it was going to be exceptional. Their wedding took place at the Grand Bohemian, and I'm always excited about photographing at Kessler properties because of the unique atmosphere and ambiance.





Valerie's Vera Wang gown was exquisite!




And of course she wore Louboutins. It was so funny, when I entered her room and Val was getting her hair and make-up done, she jumped up and came running over and gave me a hug, and then started taking me around the room introducing me to people. And then she said, "Garrett, you must come over here so that I can make one final introduction. Please, I just have to introduce you to my shoes."






And since red is her favorite color, some cute little Kate Spade dancing shoes.


Brian, who you will meet shortly, scored some major points with this beautiful Chanel necklace for his bride.




Here's Brian, the guy who gave her the Chanel necklace. He waited patiently, while Val entered the room for their "first look."


The handsome couple.


Did I mention how much I loved her dress?


We had so much fun doing portraits, and I honestly can't pick a favorite (it's like picking a favorite child.... impossible!), so we'll just show several.






I love this shot of Brian!




So classic.




How stoic is Val's father as they prepare to walk down the aisle!




Unfortunately we had to photograph the entire ceremony through these small cabin windows in the back of the sanctuary, but we made the best of it and captured everything from the back.








Can we please do another portrait in the Church breezeway?


Their bridal party was fantastic! What a great group of friends!


Let's do a few more portraits, okay?








How fun are these details!






I loved their dance...


...and the way her dress flowed


Everyone!




Thanks, Val and Brian, for letting us capture your special day. It's been a pleasure getting to know you and we're looking forward to that "family session" next fall with your new puppy "Chanel."

Yeah Val and Brian - loved every minute of it! ;o)

Can you wear the dress to your holiday party next month? It would be a shame to wear Vera only once...

The Grand Bohemian is such a perfect venue for an event like a wedding! I mean, just look at the photos - it speaks for itself.
