Private Garden Wedding: Lakeland, Florida Wedding Photographer

Morgan and Greg . . . Words fall short of fully encapsulating their sweet, heartfelt wedding day. Maybe it's because the little gestures, the quiet moments that tell their story. It's the way he looks at her with such open love and adoration. It's the way she laughs and lights up with him. It's the tender way they just couldn't seem to stop holding hands that lets everyone know how deeply in love they are with each other.  One of the things we noticed about Greg was how obvious it is was that the three favorite women in his life are his darling daughter Jazmyne, his mom Sue and his bride Morgan. This elegant garden wedding will have you guessing their wedding venue!

Morgan and Greg were so eager to be married, they planned their wedding in less than three months! They wanted the day to be about embracing their love of family, so it was only natural that they chose her parents' Lakeland, Florida home to host their wedding day festivities. Even their canine child Dobey, took part in their special day, relaxing on the bed while Morgan got dressed then posing with the newlyweds for portraits.

The details of this wedding were so lovely! From the vibrant lilac colors in Morgan's bouquet, to her sleek wedding dress (which because of time, she bought off the rack. Incredible!) to the gorgeous mint and lavender colored centerpieces. But most importantly, a feeling of blissful romance, gratitude and family infused their day. For us, the true magic was getting to witness the smiles, the tears of joy and love from not just Morgan and Greg, but also their family and friends.

Our favorite part of the day was when we got the opportunity to "wednap" Morgan and Greg for additional newlywed portraits. So off we raced to Hollis Gardens and Lake Mirror, which provided a neoclassical architectural setting for this wonderful couple. Yes, they had an intimate garden wedding but their wedding photography collection was epic! The best of both worlds.

It was such an honor to photograph the start of this gracious couple's marriage. Morgan and Greg, we wish you a lifetime of happiness and passion. May you continue to laugh, snuggle Dobey and find magic in those everyday moments.
