Wedding Day Tips for Florida Brides

It’s become an essential part of my client experience to educate my brides on what works and what does not work for beach weddings in Florida. And now, I am sharing the knowledge!

Planning Your Wedding Day Photography Timeline

Here’s a sample of our wedding photography timeline we suggest to all our Ardensea brides and grooms!

Making Bride & Groom Portraits a Priority on Your Wedding Day

Running out of time is the biggest reason why couples skip over the bride and groom portraits, so it’s important to plan for at least 30-minutes to an hour for newlyweds to step away and capture wedding day pictures.

Best Detail Shots for Your Wedding Day

When it comes to planning out your wedding photography, consider the little details that have a surprisingly big impact. See which shots are absolute must-haves on your wedding day.

Maliha & Fuad

Florida Hotel and Conference Center

Luxurious Pakistani Wedding

Featuring the Florida Hotel and Conference Center and the Cocoa Cola Orlando Eye

Maliha and Fuad had a beautiful 2-Day mehndi and wedding ceremony,  in their traditional Pakistani culture. Talk about luxurious! This elegant celebration took place at the Florida Hotel and Conference Center in Orlando Florida and features the couple soaring high on the Orlando Eye – a whopping 400 ft tall giant Ferris wheel! It doesn’t get any more exciting that that!

The Pakistani wedding culture is truly amazing to experience. The celebrations are unbelievably enchanting. The fabrics drip in gold ornaments and everyone, including the vendors (me included), danced until the early morning. It was a huge party and I felt so privileged to be a part of it. You may remember Maliha and Fuad from there Mehndi Pre-Wedding Ceremony that was featured earlier this year.

Maliha’s wedding dress was a gorgeous Maroon and gold velvet gown. I’d never seen anything so glamourous. Their wedding day started with getting ready in their suite at the Florida Hotel, followed by a very sweet first look and off to the Orlando eye we went!

    What an absolutely stunning Pakistani wedding! The details, ornate jewlery, vibrant colors and customs are so exquisit! Do you shoot many mehndi and wedding ceremony events? Orlando is lucky to have you as a wedding photographer!

    What a gorgeous Pakistani wedding! I love the color and vibrance of South Asian weddings, though I have only been to Indian weddings vs. Pakistani. I see lots of similarities, but a few differences in attire. The pictures are stunning. I love the dancing and candid shots.

    What gorgeous wedding photos! You did such a wonderful job of showing the opulence and the care taken to dress the bride and groom for the occasion. But I also loved that you captured the bride smiling with her groom, obviously very happy on her wedding day. And the pictures of the dancing were great fun to look at as well 🙂

    Wow! What a fun celebration! We don’t often get to see a Pakistani wedding here in the US I think. The details are so lush and beautiful. They look like such a happy couple together and the portraits of them together are just lovely. Orlando is fortunate to have such a wonderful wedding photographer!
