Paradise Cove Wedding
Danielle and Vinny tied the knot during their Paradise Cove wedding in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. Envisioning a beachy vibe with a picturesque Florida feel, Paradise Cove could not have been a more perfect option!
My sweethearts story began when Dani moved to Louisiana for an internship and began working at the local Olive Garden, where you guessed who worked as well – Vinny! Making her laugh every day, the two clearly had a connection, and soon it evolved from friendship to a relationship. Asking Dani to marry him at Magic Kingdom, their journey to forever began with a little bit of fairy dust.
Wedding Day at Paradise Cove
From their magical to proposal to their beautiful wedding day, I was so excited to be able to capture Dani and Vinny tie the knot. Dani is like my twin when it comes to being laid back, but Type A when it comes to her organization, which made for an incredible stress-free day. Arriving a bit early to the venue, Dani greeted us shortly after to capture her minimal details of her rings and dress. With plenty of time to spare, we also captured the girls in their adorable plaid pajamas, side note – I am a big fan of bride’s party pajamas because you can actually wear them again and again!, and of course a few adorable shots of the girls toasting to Dani.
While our girls changed into their dresses, we headed to the guys who had just arrived to capture them suiting up and their groom’s party portraits. Vinny’s groom’s party looked ever so dapper and I loved exploring the venue with them from the dock to the palm tree background next to their reception space.
Back over in the bridal suite, the girls had finished getting in their dresses and were ready to help Dani in hers. Pulling them outside for a few shots, I loved the tropical background we incorporated into their getting ready time. After being zipped and buttoned into her dress, we moved on to photos of Dani and her bride’s party. With guests beginning to arrive, we quickly hid our girls away and prepared for the ceremony procession to begin.
Paradise Cove Wedding Ceremony
Facing towards the water so that he would not see Dani walking from the bridal suite to the aisle, Vinny turned once the moment was right to see Dani for the first time. One of the most magical moments of the day, it felt so beautiful to capture.
After our couple’s ceremony, we captured formal portraits of their families and bridal party against a tropical background before taking our couple on an adventure for newlywed portraits. Sun setting at the perfect moment in all of the perfect locations from the dock to the beach made for gorgeous lighting. Returning back to their reception space after newlywed portraits, our bridal party began lining up to prepare for the reception entrance.
