Grand Bohemian Hotel Wedding
Audra and Lou tied the knot during their Grand Bohemian Hotel wedding in Orlando, Florida. Envisioning an elegant day filled with laughter, the two couldn’t wait to become Mr. and Mrs.!
Having met just over two years ago, Audra and Lou had an instant connection with their first date at the Cheesecake Factory lasting for hours. Bonding over their love of bulldogs and so many other commonalities, the two became inseparable since that special day. Proposing to Audra in early 2019 during a cruise to the Bahamas, both knew that they didn’t want to wait long to say I do!
Wedding Day at the Grand Bohemian Orlando
Fast forward to their big day, it was so incredible to see my sweethearts again since first meeting in person at their engagement session. Lou and Audra both have a laid back vibe with focus on wanting to enjoy family and friend time during their wedding day. The two traits made for a day that they both enjoyed to be able to soak up every moment.
Starting off with our bride, Audra was finishing up hair and makeup with Kristy’s Artistry Design Team in one of the beautiful suites at the Boheme. Capturing her fabulous details, including a pretty killer pair of custom shoes, we soon moved on to her getting in her dress with help of her maid of honor Tracey. A few floors up, Lou was also getting ready in putting on his suit jacket and sentimental cufflinks that read “Love you forever” and “You’re the one,” a gift from Audra.
Opting for a first look and all formal portraits before their ceremony, we brought Lou out to their ceremony spot against greenery lining the aisle. Audra soon came out as well too. I loved being able to capture the emotion on Lou’s face as she walked up behind him and seeing each other for the first time. All of the excitement, joy, and love filled the air immediately once they locked eyes.
A special treat, well a trio that likes treats, also joined in on our sweethearts first look. Lou and Audra’s three bulldogs were wrangled up by the help of the awesome FairyTail Pet Care team for a few photos. After a few puppy dog kisses, we also captured the rest of our formal portraits including family groupings and of course our bridal party.
Grand Bohemian Wedding Ceremony
With guests starting to arrive, we quickly hid our couple and prepared for their ceremony procession to begin. Guests couldn’t wait to see our couple, and their pups, as the bridal party processed down the aisle. Once vows were shared, along with a first kiss, Lou and Audra were officially Mr. and Mrs.!
Grand Bohemian Wedding Reception
Before enjoying time at cocktail hour, our couple headed downstairs for a few shots at the piano bar, along with going back upstairs afterwards for a few ballroom reception shots. Reception entrances started soon after cocktail hour had ended once guests were seated, along with formal dances and toasts. Ending the night with a few cool elevator goodbye shots, we were so overjoyed to have been a part of capturing their big day.
Congratulations to my sweet couple!
