Jorge and Maria have been married for 10 years. But, they never had the opportunity to have a real wedding. So they decided that on their 10 year anniversary they would do just that. I met Jorge and Maria when I moved to Florida a couple years ago. Since getting married they have had two children.
They asked me to do a save the date shoot for them. I found a small area behind a shopping plaza that turned out to be a great photo spot. You can check out a few of the photos from that shoot below.
The save the date photos came out great as you can see. Next was just waiting for their wedding day/vow renewal date to arrive.
The location for the wedding took place on a golf course in Altamonte Springs. Just outside Orlando. Golf courses always make for great backdrops to a wedding. Only problem was the weather decided it wanted to rain shortly before the ceremony. The weather did clear up by the time the ceremony was to begin but that didn't mean the area dried up in time. With wet chairs outside for the guest it was decided to move the ceremony inside. Either way, the day they waited 10 years to make happen was finally here.
With an excited bride and groom and their close friend officiating, I'm sure it felt as if they were getting married for the first time. I was honored they chose me to photograph this very special occasion for them and I'm happy to share some of my favorite photos from Jorge and Maria's wedding.
