Summertime Windermere Florida Elopement

Summertime Windermere Florida Elopement

Windermere Florida Mansion Elopement: Melonie + Edward. Bride in blue.

This beautiful elopement took place in Windermere, Florida where I met with Rosemarie and her future husband Edward in celebration of their beautiful elopement. I was overjoyed with excitement about shooting this elopement because it was my first elopement and I know Rosemarie. She is not only fluent in sign language, but she also works with a local organization called One Heart for Women and Children where she whole-heartedly serves with the Founder of the organization. After Hurricane Irma hit Florida, she went out, along with her future husband to help local families within downtown Orlando. I remember the day like it was yesterday because I was there. That's right. I went out to capture what they were doing for One Heart for Women and Children. Rosemarie wore a dark blue flowing dress that complimented her figure and accessories well. I love how everything that she wore served it's purpose and I also love that her daughter wore a color that was in her bridal bouquet. You may be wondering why I would do that as a professional wedding photographer and cinematographer. Well, the truth is that, I too have volunteered with One Heart for Women and Children and I love doing it because it grounds me. It reminds me to not only be grateful for what I have, but it also reminds me to be humble and to help others if and when I can.

When I arrived at the private location for this elopement my breath was taken away. The home was on the oceanfront, the inside was bright and airy (how I like it), and there was a lot of natural light to do my thing -lol. Rosemarie and her daughter were in one of the backrooms getting ready while the Groom was on the other side of the home semi-dressed. He was ready to get this elopement going, but I could also tell that he didn't want to rush thought it; I loved it. There was also this amazing clock that I could not get my eyes off of. I could honestly stay at this home forever and shoot weddings here everyday -lol.

Once Rosemarie was dressed, we queued everyone else to get ready for the elopement ceremony to begin. Edward did his last fixings, the Officiant was ready to go, and I was finishing up the detail shots excited to capture their special moment in time.
