The start of 2019 was absolutely amazing! Just two weeks after we got back from photographing a stunning wedding in Riviera Maya, we headed down to Orlando for Rachel and Tony’s lovely day! Their Cypress Grove Estate House Wedding day was one I’m sure they will never forget! Rain moved in the evening before the wedding and continued through the end of the day! But as they say rain on a wedding day is good luck, so these two should have a lifetime or two of luck!
The day began with Tony and Rachel getting ready at Cypress Grove Estate House, Rachel upstairs, and Tony downstairs! Rachel looked absolutely stunning and her family surrounded her with so much love, bringing joy to every moment they could! Luckily Rachel and Tony were brave and were willing to head out into the downpour for portraits! The grounds around the Cypress Grove Estate House are stunning, filled with spanish moss and street lined trees! Truly such a beautiful place for portraits!
The ceremony was set to take place a beautiful patio, however due to the rain, we had to make a quick change and move everything under the tent! The ceremony itself was short and sweet as guests moved back inside for the cocktail hour! From there we headed into the reception, back under the tent! The tables were gorgeous, filled with candles that gave the entire space a warm feeling with the rain pouring outside! The night was full of dancing and we sent Rachel and Tony off with a sparkler exit, in the rain!
Congratulations to the newlyweds!!! The rain truly couldn’t put a damper on the love you two share, plus you’ll have some great stories to tell in the future!
