Welcome To Madalyn & Garret's Highland Manor Wedding
Join me on a heartwarming journey through Madalyn and Garret’s unforgettable wedding day at Highland Manor in Apopka, Florida. As a passionate wedding, engagement, and lifestyle photographer based in Orlando and Central Florida, I had the absolute pleasure of capturing every precious moment on that sun-kissed December day.
Getting Ready at Hilton Garden In
Madalyn and Garret’s day kicked off in a unique way, with the couple choosing to get ready at the Hilton Garden Inn, conveniently situated next door to Highland Manor. The close proximity made for a stress-free morning as they prepared for their big day.
A Mother's Love, Madalyn's Dressing Moment
After some heartfelt moments at Hilton Garden Inn, we transitioned to the bridal suite at Highland Manor. With the help of her loving mother, Madalyn slipped into her gorgeous wedding gown. The room was filled with laughter and emotion as the finishing touches were added, making Madalyn feel like an absolute vision.
The First Look, A Love Story Unveiled
Madalyn and Garret decided on a heartwarming first look moment. As Garret turned around to see his bride, their faces lit up with sheer joy and anticipation. It was an intimate and emotional moment that set the tone for the day. After the first look, we embarked on capturing the love between Madalyn and Garret through a series of bride and groom portraits. Their chemistry and affection for each other shone in each photograph, making my job an absolute pleasure.
The Ceremony Under the Century Oak Tree
The ceremony took place beneath the sprawling branches of a century oak tree, bathed in the warm December sunlight. Surrounded by nature’s beauty, Madalyn and Garret exchanged their vows, creating an unforgettable moment of unity and love.
A Family Affair, the Post-Ceremony Family Portraits and the Classic Ford Mustang
Right after the ceremony, we gathered at the grand staircase of Highland Manor for some Newlyweds and family portraits. We kept the list to immediate family only allowing the rest of the guests to enjoy cocktail hour. Before we head to the reception, we took advantage of the Classic Ford Mustang's charm for some additional newlyweds portraits with the sunset. The car added an extra layer of timeless romance, making for some of the most unforgettable photographs.
Reception in the Ballroom
As the day transitioned into evening, the celebration moved into the grand ballroom at Highland Manor. The venue exuded elegance and grandeur, providing the perfect backdrop for a night filled with laughter, love, and memories in the making. Dubsdread Catering took charge of the culinary delights, wowing guests with delectable dishes that left everyone wanting more. The attention to detail and flavor profiles were nothing short of exceptional. Throughout the day, the staff of P.S. I Love You Weddings & Events and the staff at Highland Manor exhibited warmth and attentiveness, ensuring Madalyn and Garret’s day ran smoothly and seamlessly. Their dedication added an extra layer of magic to the occasion.
The reception was nothing short of excitement, thanks to the energetic Dj of Orlando DJ Group, who kept the dance floor alive and buzzing. The music filled the room with infectious energy, and guests danced the night away, creating memorable moments.
Grand Bubbles Exit and a Vintage Ford Mustang
As the night drew to a close, Madalyn and Garret bid farewell in a whimsical style. A grand exit enveloped in bubbles was followed by the newlyweds riding off into the night in a vintage Ford Mustang, leaving guests in awe. Madalyn and Garret's wedding at Highland Manor was a celebration of love, laughter, cherished moments and the exhilaration of a lively reception. As their photographer, I am honored to be part of their special day.
