WILL + RENEE | Grand Oaks Manor — Florida Wedding


Emely has been with us since the beginning and captured every moment beautifully! My husband hired her to photograph his surprise proposal in central park and then she conveniently moved to Florida in time to be our wedding photographer. She also photographed a boudoir shoot for me to gift to my husband on our wedding day. We have more photos then we know what to do with, and they are all gorgeous! Looking back, I get to relive every detail of our wedding which all became a blur as the night went by so quickly. She managed to handle our very large families for family portraits which came out beautifully. She is cool, calm, and collected and will make you feel at ease. 10/10 would get married again just to have Emely photograph us again.
— Will and Renee

When Will contacted me about photographing his surprise proposal in Central Park the summer of 2016, the last thing on my mind was being able to fly out to photograph his future Florida wedding — but man oh man, am I so happy I was given the honor to. As many of you know, I moved to Orlando last fall, and with the craziness of my move, I didn't even think to let Will and Renee know! Well, thank god it clicked and I did just a few weeks later, because WHAT A GORGEOUS WEDDING it turned out to be!

The ride throughout their wedding planning wasn't an easy one. With two hurricanes blowing through Florida before their date, their venue plans got ripped right out of their hands. But the amazing people over at Grand Oaks Manor (which is actually a new luxury residential community) extended their stunning property to them and set up a perfect wedding venue! The stars must have aligned, because we had the most perfect weather on Will and Renee's wedding day, which of course made for the most people portraits. Just imagine, it wasn't sweltering hot in Central Florida. It was actually breezy. What?! 

What a blessing that it all worked out, these guys truly deserved it. Scroll down and see for yourselves how beautiful Will and Renee's wedding was. They made my job super easy <3
