Gemmily contacted me less than a week before she was set to say “I do” in an intimate wedding ceremony at Lake Eola in downtown Orlando. I’m SO glad I happen to have the date available because I absolutely love elopements and super intimate affairs! Something about them is just extra romantic and special to me and I am always super honored to be a part of it. I am also extremely glad that Gemmily put her trust in me as the professional photographer and allowed me to decide the best ceremony time in order to catch the incredible sunset lighting over the water. It was so dreamy! After some heartfelt vows officiated by Marcus Moore in front of a handful of their closest friends and family, we took the opportunity to wander around a bit to capture some beautiful images of the newlyweds.
Gemmily looked stunning in her beautiful high-low wedding gown and Chris looked quite dapper himself in his grey suit and pink tie– all eyes were definitely on them as we strolled through the busy park… although I’m pretty sure they were too focused on each other to even notice. :-) After their portraits and once the sun went down they joined their guests again down the street at the popular downtown restaurant 310 Lakeside for a group dinner to celebrate.
It was a joy to share this special occasion alongside this sweet couple and I wish them nothing but the very best together! Enjoy some of my favorite images from their intimate Orlando wedding day below.
