Wedding Under the Christmas Lights

This particular wedding was one I have been looking forward to for quite some time. I had the pleasure of meeting Clint, Heather, and Caden for their engagement session last year. You may remember the blog of their engagement session that included the most adorable little man, their son Caden.


Heather and Clint decided to get married in one of the prettiest towns during one of the prettiest times of year for this town, Mt Dora’s Donnelly Park is extensively decorated in holiday lights for the season and offers a cute historic building for events perfect for an intimate wedding.

Heather and Clint decided to do a “first look” before their ceremony so that they could enjoy their day together instead of hiding from one another. There is no way to substitute the reaction a man gets from seeing the love of his life in her wedding dress for the first time!

As you can see, Heather was stunning in her blush and beaded princess gown. This dress couldn’t have been more fitting for her, it was as if someone took a look at her soul and made this dress as a result.

Even with the short notice, family and friends were able to make all the necessary adjustments for Heather to walk down the aisle in a cozy 70degree room. They included Caden in the ceremony, he got to ring a bell, also joining hands together as a family instead of just a couple.


After the ceremony, we took to the street to capture the happy newlyweds under the amazing Christmas lights. One of my favorite activities is to bring my newlyweds out in the world all dressed up so that they can see the excitement from complete strangers. Beeping, yelling, high fives.. just so much fun.


After all of the fun outside we headed back to the party to celebrate their family and eat cake. After I got home from this wedding I quickly added some of my favorite shots of the night to Facebook for Clint and Heather to share with friends.
