“Written in the Stars” Elyse and Andrew’s True Fairytale Wedding – Winter Park

What is the definition of a fairytale wedding??? Such things as a stunning ball gown, sparkling stilettos, and a perfectly dapper groom, may come to one’s mind, but in Elyse and Andrew’s case, things like unconditional love and unwavering commitment define their fairytale. No need to worry, the stunning ball gown and sparkly stilettos make their appearance throughout their day and are sure not to disappoint! Elyse and Andrew’s story didn’t start out as a fairytale, in fact quite the opposite. Elyse had an ongoing battle with Leukemia throughout her childhood and teenage years. During her Sophomore year in high school, she and Andrew had only been on a couple dates when she had to go back to the hospital to battle another relapse of the leukemia. Andrew, constantly visited her bringing flowers and hanging by her bedside. These two individuals, while battling such a serious matter at such young ages, were prevailing a life-threatening disease all while building the foundation of a solid and unwavering love. Fast-forwarding 7 years later and with a clean bill of health, Andrew popped the big question in none other than New York City’s Central Park, a place I’d say is the perfect start to their fairytale wedding! And just this past May, Elyse and Andrew had their day and I couldn’t imagine it being any more perfect. See for yourself below and I think you’d agree. A huge congratulations Elyse and Andrew, love you both and thank you for choosing me to document such a joyous day in your lives.

xoxo – Abby
