Kayleigh & James traveled all the way from the U.K. to elope in Orlando Florida! How cool is that? Florida is a special place to Kayleigh and her dad, and when she saw Leu Gardens she knew it was the place where she wanted to elope with James thanks to all of its beauty. Kayleigh’s dad was also able to attend their elopement, which made it even more special!
Kayleigh and James had a very touching ceremony reading the vows they wrote to each other and had me in tears behind my camera. Not to mention goosebumps all over. This is a day they have waited for for quite some time and it was so beautiful to witness these two pledge their love to one another. It is so surreal that I get to capture these super important milestones for my clients. I couldn’t be more excited for these two beautiful souls.
Kayleigh wore the most gorgeous bridal gown that was swoon worthy for photos. And she did her own hair and makeup, which was stunning! She also had the sweetest bridal bouquet from Etsy. James wore a light colored suit which I now know is hands down my favorite color for a groom. They were both show stoppers.
Leu Gardens is such a beautiful location for a wedding! One of the things I love about it the most is how many diverse backdrops you can get just steps from each other. Kayleigh and James eloped in the Idea Garden which is in a private corner tucked away. Just steps from there we found a beautiful purple flowering tree. Some of my favorite shots from their day are in this spot. Kayleigh and James were so much fun to shoot with and complete naturals with the camera. I could have spent my whole day with them. We headed to the rose garden to finish up their portraits and it did not disappoint! We felt like we were in a magical fairytale.
Kayleigh and James – thank you for allowing me to capture your elopement! It was such an honor to witness your beautiful love. I hope when you look back at these photos in years to come you feel as though you’re frozen in time with feelings of love and excitement!
