Congratulations to a very nice couple who made the commitment today to join in marriage today at the Longwood Community Building. I am honored to have been the chosen one to perform their ceremony. They had a nice size bridal party which included some children. They walked down the aisle perfectly and added another nice touch to an already beautiful day.
Willie and Chely renewed their wedding vows in Winter Park after 20 years of marriage. Congratulations.
I always look forward to the fall weddings here in central Florida. This is the time of year that everyone loves the idea of having theirs outdoors. From now till March we can expect very little chance of the afternoon thunderstorms even though we have a couple of months to go. Feel free to contact me anytime with anything that may help you in planning your perfect dream wedding.
On September 9th I had the pleasure of performing my 66th wedding. The day was a bit rainy but we were not pressed for time at The Secret Garden that morning so we waited it out. The event was attended by a small gathering which added to the intimate ceremony this bride and groom had hoped for. The pictures taken by Abba Photography turned out beautiful with natures soft lighting provided by the lingering cloud cover. Congratulations Janet and Jibri!
Congratulations to Shelley and Kane on their wedding at Lake Mary Event Center Thursday night. It may have rained but the wedding ceremony was inside and it was beautiful. I personally enjoyed the comic relief during the sand ceremony as did the family and guests. They did abort the small funnel half way through. What a nice couple. Thanks for having me included as part of your special day.
I performed a wedding for Dave and Darlene with Marc Burgess Productions as the DJ at Timacuan Country Club last night for Dave and Darlene. Flowers were provided by Vicki from Peddles and David at Timacuan coordinated the event. Marti of Abba Photography was the photographer for the entire ceremony and reception. Congratulations to Dave and Darlene on their BIG day.
This is by far one of my favorite wedding locations in Orlando, Florida and for more than one reason. Check out The Secret Garden and you will see why so many brides are surprised at how easy it is to get to this destination wedding location and how private and beautiful it is within the metro area. Just 20 minutes from downtown Orlando and just 3 miles from Interstate 4. The packages include just about everything and for a great price that I am sure will not last forever. You owe it to yourself to check it out. Only limitation is the guest max is up to 60.
Congratulations to Karin and Mike on their wedding at Mama Della’s Portofino Hotel Orlando. The wedding took place on July 22, 2012 and they were so nice to everyone including Marti of Abba Photography and Bruce from Treasured Moments Video Productions. The weather looked threatening up until the ceremony start time and then we were blessed with a clearing. The reception took place inside the restaurant and we were treated like royalty.
