Shandalyn & James, who met in the Summer of 2009 at a UCF frat party, have been planning their Orlando wedding day for about two years! After all this time it was amazing to finally see their gorgeous day at the Four Seasons Resort come to life. They chose accents of rose gold, blush and navy to compliment their luxurious and modern ivory decor. The ladies got ready in a beautiful bridal suite overlooking the resort while the gentlemen got ready at the executive boardroom downstairs. It was so convenient to have everyone all in one place where we could easily bounce back and forth for photos and video!
Their ceremony took place at the Grand Ballroom East and was officiated by Shandalyn’s grandfather. With it being the middle of the Summer, they opted for an indoor location for their ceremony which was such a wise choice! After they said “I do” and jumped the broom we took the bridal party to the atrium as well as the grand staircase for photos. It was drizzling so we were unable to get portraits outdoors, however the Four Seasons is such a stunning venue inside that it wasn’t a problem at all! The iconic staircase and chandeliers are literally to die for and we were able to get tons of gorgeous and creative photos of the newlyweds.
From there guests were ushered into the Palm Ballroom to get the party started! They had such an amazing crowd and all of James’ frat brothers kept the dance floor lit all night long. They ended their perfect evening with a sparkler exit — it was SUCH an amazing day. My team and I had a freakin blast capturing their wedding… it didn’t even feel like work. I hope you enjoy their official sneak peek below!
