The dark skies threatened all day to open up and pour on us. There were some spotty showers that were just more of a nusiance than anything. Regardless of the weather, Scott & Cristina were to be united as husband and wife and begin their marriage journey. It was a such a super-fun day, as we knew several people in the wedding party. We met Cristina when she was a bridesmaid in Stefanie & Ryan’s wedding.
The day began at The Embassy Suites downtown. KyleLynn Cosmetics was there to help these already beautiful girls look their best. Cristina was radiant in her gorgeous wedding gown from The Collection Bridal. The noon ceremony was not far away at the exquisite St James Catholic Cathedral. Scott was quite overcome with emotion as he watched his bride walk down the aisle. I loved Cristina’s father giving her away, placing her hands together with Scott’s. There was so much emotion surrounding them in those moments. After the ceremony, there was a nice, long intermission before the start of cocktail hour around 4:30 at the private Rosalind Club on Lake Eola. The newlyweds, along with their wedding party, had time to hang out, relax and enjoy one another’s company before the evening festivities. There was extra time to enjoy the beautiful downtown and Lake Eola backdrops.
Scott & Cristina’s wedding day was a reflection of what is important to them – relationships. They were surrounded by the people that were most important to them. Even the priest has know Scott since he was a young boy. Cristina had family from Spain that came to the States for the first time. It was a huge celebration and involved lots of dancing! Guests enjoyed a phenomenal dinner by Arthur’s Catering and entertainment by Miles DJ Productions. Guests were also treated to a churro station later in the evening. Tracy with Eventfully Yours ensured that everything looked fabulous and things ran smoothly. When the evening wrapped up, Scott & Cristina exited the Rosalind Club through blowing bubbles where Cristina was surprised with a horse and carriage for their departure. They enjoyed a ride around downtown as Mr & Mrs. What an awesome day!
