Aneska and Colin’s Wedding – April 7th – The Ritz-Carlton, Orlando

The weather couldn’t be better for Aneska and Colin’s beautiful outdoor wedding at The Ritz-Carlton here in Orlando. We began our day by meeting Aneska up in her bridal suite where her stunning Pronovias wedding gown and Jimmy Choos were anxiously waiting to be photographed. This wedding had so many lovely details it was very easy to get lost in photographing every little thing. One of the special details we photographed during the getting ready hour was a beautiful picture of Aneska’s Grandmother in a frame. I found an area of beautiful light, (something easy to do in the Ritz), and placed this picture frame amongst Aneska’s wedding jewelry, garter, shoes, and perfume. Something I thought to be rather special and symbolic for Aneska to remember. Shortly after she was dressed, her groom Colin made his way up for their “first look” moment in the peaceful silence of their wedding suite. With Aneska’s permission of course, I quietly hid in the bathroom and photographed their first moment of seeing each other for the first time. It was quite touching and the light was amazing. Aneska’s bouquet was another detail that we loved. She had gardenias placed throughout which smelled so good! Gardenias are my absolute favorite and have such a potent and amazing smell. Their ceremony took place under a gazebo draped with white shears just before sundown. The sky was a faint blue the clouds casted a pink hue, perfect lighting for an outdoor ceremony.  Guests sipped on cocktails and witnessed Aneska and Colin exchange vows. The reception details were quite stunning with tones of lilac, silver, and ivory throughout. As the night set in, the candlelight grew more apparent and set a romantic tone to the whole reception. The Mojito was the signature cocktail and guests were entertained by an authentic Panamanian dance performance, a nod to Aneska’s Panamanian heritage. After dinner and a little bit of dancing, everyone headed indoors to an “After Glow” party to finish the night off with lots more dancing to a blend of  hip-hop, old school rap, and classic rock by DJ Lyv Wyr. Aneska and Colin truly had one beautiful wedding and I am so blessed to have had the joy of photographing it. Congratulations to you both!  xoxo – Abby
