These two newlyweds were married at the Hammock House cabin in Wekiva in a beautiful rustic and chic event complete with cowboy boots, burlap accents and lots of country charm. Joined by their adorable baby boy and their closest friends and family, they tied the knot in a touching ceremony where I can pretty much guarantee there was not a dry eye in sight. Ryan’s reaction when he saw Alissa coming down the aisle was truly heart melting. Let me just say it’s a good thing I’m an experienced wedding photographer because watery eyes make for a tough time seeing through that camera viewfinder, haha!
After they exchanged vows we had the opportunity to wander around the property for their first photos as Mr. & Mrs Pantaleo. I had spotted some horses when I first arrived and I was so excited when I suggested we take a short walk to where they were and Alissa’s face lit up. My little photographer heart was definitely soaring when the horse trotted right over to us and happily joined them for photos!
It wasn’t until the evening that the storm clouds rolled in, but the thunder was the perfect bass accompaniment to their epic party! These two killed it on the dance floor literally all night and Ryan showed off his ‘whip’ and ‘nay-nay’ like nobody’s business. It was such a blast to spend the day with these two and so great to finally meet their little one who I had only seen via snapchat leading up to their big day. I’m so glad I got to capture this joyous moment in their lives and I wish them nothing but the very best in their future together. I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images for their special day below!
