Let's take a look at the first wedding I booked here in Florida. This entry is going to be both a review of the event and a showcase about the venue Paradise Cove.
Where to start with Dessirea & Jason? Thats an easy one.... the only thing these two might love more than each other is all their exotic pets. Check out their instagram @DeGrandeFarms, they have some of the most unique pets you'll ever see. Now as far as the wedding itself, such an incredibly fun bride and groom. Jason & Dessirea gave me the chance to complete my first wedding here in Florida. It was a feeling of relief when I booked their project, because it meant I was back on my feet and running in business again. It was incredible to be able to capture the events of the day knowing that not all the guest could attend due to the current state of covid. I do remember seeing the size of the overall wedding and being concerned about how much reception party footage I was going to be able to record. Boy was I wrong, the entire wedding brought so much energy to the dance floor all night long that I ended up editing an extra social media trailer just to showcase the party itself. Check out the photo below, to this day the use of peacock feathers as part of the floral display is still on of the prettiest designs I have seen.
Paradise Cover, Orlando FL - One of the coolest things about starting over here in Florida is learning all the venues. I would have never expected to find a picture perfect beach setting in the middle of the Orlando theme park scene. This venue is a hideaway located on the shore of Lake Buena Vista that can handled the entire wedding day from prep to ceremony to reception. The most unique feature is the boat entrance / exit option. It was so awesome filming my amazing couple jump on a boat and disappear out into the dark lake lit only by moonlight to end the night. As you can see from the pictures below the ceremony location is absolutely stunning with a water front view and sandy beach for your post ceremony portrait sessions and video showcase segment. My favorite part of the entire venue has to be the twinkle string lights that hang above the outdoor patio area. The DeGrande's shared a beautiful moment under the stars for one of their dances, and Paradise Cove was the perfect backdrop for everything.
