Fahima and Kyle tied the knot during their Cypress Grove Estate House wedding in Orlando, Florida. The two envisioned an outdoor ceremony filled with hanging moss, a romantic warmth, and lakeside vows. Their indoor reception space was filled with photos of loved ones from both near and far, to remind their guests that they were at home and welcomed. Marsala red, navy, and soft pinks and creams attributed to the romantic feel of their special day.
My sweethearts’ story begins by chance through an online dating app. The two swiped right when they happened to see one another online, but never would have thought that a simple swipe could lead to love. After talking for a bit online, the two took it offline by meeting in person at Azteca De’Oro for their first official date. Hitting it off right from the beginning, they realized that they had an undeniable chemistry and their first date led into many more.
Engaged on Veteran’s Day back in 2016, Kyle knew that Fahima was the one and wanted to make his proposal both special and intimate for just the two of them. Taking Fahima out on a hike, which they do often, they traveled to the Little Big Econ Barr Street Trailhead. Having shared their first kiss in the beautiful park, it was the perfect spot for Kyle to ask Fahima to marry him and of course Fahima said, “yes!”
Their wedding day felt just as intimate as their proposal, filled with their closest family and friends. Starting off, we met up with Fahima for getting ready photos including capturing her and her girls in their adorable pajamas, putting on her dress, and one of my favorite moments – bridal portraits! Fahima has a natural grace about her that translates so beautiful into imagery.
Upon Kyle arriving to the Cypress Grove Estate House, we wrapped up with Fahima so she could prepare for their first look and captured Kyle and his silly groomsmen putting on their jackets and “trying” to act GQ for the camera. I must say Kyle’s best man had the most hilarious toast and definitely kept things light for the camera.
Their first look was filled to the brim with excitement, nervousness, and so much love. Kyle was almost too nervous to turn around, but when he did the smile on his face seeing Fahima for the first time was like instantaneous. It took all we had as a team to hold back our tears, as our couple held one another for the first time on their wedding day.
Formal portraits followed their first look before their ceremony, so that our couple could take part in cocktail hour with their guests after. Their ceremony was led by Fahima’s brother in law, Jay Cortes, who gave a monologue. Fighting back the tears, Fahima and Kyle shared personal vows recounting the moment they first fell in love – for Kyle it was when Fahima wanted Pub subs for dinner (good choice!) and for Fahima it was the moment she saw forever in him!
