Orchid Garden Wedding || Orlando, FL

The story of how Ashley/Marcelo and I connected is unique. Their wedding was originally taking place in Guatemala but then less than two months from their scheduled wedding day, the country’s political climate was shaken very badly and it was not looking like it was safe to travel there. Ashley inquired with me and explained their situation of still wanting to go thru with the wedding but now having to move it to Orlando with very little short time. I was instantly emotionally invested after reading their story. I was happy that in such short notice I had the date available and I couldn’t wait to reply with the good news.

We quickly connected on our first phone call and it was a match! We met in person about two weeks later for a mini-photoshoot before the wedding day. Even if it’s not a traditional engagement shoot, I always try to schedule a meeting with all my couples to do at least a short practice shoot, like a photo-rehearsal before the wedding. Helps with the awkwardness of being in front of the camera on their wedding day if we’ve already done it once before lol.

In what felt like a blink, the wedding day arrived! Ashley and Marcelo got ready at the Embassy Suites in Downtown Orlando and took a private bus over to their church, Saint James Catholic Cathedral. The entire day was leading up this with so much emotion. During the getting ready portion of their day, it was all laughs and tears. The ceremony was not much different lol. This was a wedding in which every friend and family member was truly present and spiritually, as well as loudly, cheering them on.

After the ceremony and family pictures at the church, we were transported to their reception venue for pictures around the building before the guests arrived. Their reception venue was Orchird Garden, which made taking pictures easy because their property is so easy to photograph 🙂 After some formal and intimate pictures, we all took a short break to prepare ourselves for the party ahead.

The reception was one heck of a party!! From the intros to the emotionally charged first dance, even more emotions during the parent dances, all the way to the grand send off. One continuous good time. Especially when the Hora-Loca started, that’s when it got wild, as you’ll see below. So much fun!

Although it was a tragedy and a lot of stress that brought us together, I’m so happy to have been able to meet Ashley and Marcelo, and have had the privilege to party with their loved ones 🙂

May I simply just say what a comfort to find someone who actually understands what they’re discussing
on the web. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to
light and make it important. More people have to check this out and
understand this side of your story. I was surprised that
you are not more popular given that you certainly have
the gift.

Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to
assist with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords
but I’m not seeing very good success. If you know of any please share.
Thanks!

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to
be really something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am looking forward for your next
post, I will try to get the hang of it!
