We are so excited to share Emilie and Michael’s wedding, hosted at St. James Cathedral and Bella Collina in the fall. It was a truly elegant and rustic wedding that paid homage to Michael’s Italian heritage and Emilie’s love for the outdoors and traveling.
First things first, getting ready. Lutz Karpf Co. and Ali Lee Artistry worked with Emilie to create a soft and natural look. We love the glam shots of Emilie and the details that were captured, including the beautiful invitations, the cigars by Old Fashion Cigar, and the hanging wedding dress!
Kenzie Rae Photography snuck into the decorated Bella Collina venue to take some photos before the guests arrive. She was able to capture the elegant set up by Orlando Wedding and Party Rentals, RW Brands, Kaleidoscope Event Lighting, Letz Dance On It, In Bloom Florists, and more of our wonderful vendors.
Emilie and Michael decided to do a first look. We’re still swooning over these stunning photos Kenzie Rae Photography took of this moment as the couple toured around the Bella Collina venue together before the celebrations got started.
Shortly after, the bridal party joined in for some fun photos and champagne popping!
We moved to the stunning St. James Cathedral, not too far away from Bella Collina so that Emilie and Michael could have an intimate traditional ceremony.
After the ceremony, we traveled to Bella Collina to hold the reception! Emilie and Michael said they chose Bella Collina as their wedding venue because it made them feel like they took a quick trip to Tuscany! They fell in love with the venue as soon as they passed the guardhouse.
We loved these photos of Emilie and Michael enjoying the view from a unique point at Bella Collina! You can see the gorgeous setup by Kaleidoscope Event Lighting, dreamily lighting up their reception before they had their first dance as husband and wife.
Next up: the cake cutting ceremony! This stunning cake was created by Sugar Sugar Custom Cake Boutique.
Right after the cake, it was time to hit the dance floor. Letz Dance On It provided the awesome dance floor, while Soundwave Entertainment and Eklectic Entertainment brought the energy. Rachel Baxter was Emilie and Michael’s planner, making sure everything was running smoothly behind the scenes as everyone got their groove on!
We ended the night with some sparklers to send off the happy couple to their honeymoon! Congratulations, Emilie and Michael!
