To say I’m a bit behind in blogging would be a gross understatement. That being said, I couldn’t be happier to be posting the first of many “catch-up” installments to the blog this Summer! Betsy and Jason got married back on the first of July and without further adieu . . . LET’S DO THIS!!
Despite the rain and crazy humidity that Florida offers up each Summer day, Betsy and Jason had THE most beautiful wedding!! Their wedding service was held at the Bourne Family Chapel at Lake Highland Prep (where they both happen to work). This chapel is huge on the inside and has some of the most beautiful arches that frame the alter. Their reception was held at Eagle Creek Golf Club in Orlando where they served up some crazy delicious shrimp and grits for dinner! Chrisanne with Crystal Lake DJ Productions kept the party going all night with great music and fun props for everyone (young and young at heart alike) to wear/play with until they dropped from sheer exhaustion!
I think it’s pretty safe to say that, even though the weather didn’t exactly cooperate, everyone had an amazing time at this wedding. Betsy and Jason are so lucky to be surrounded by such loving friends and family. They really knew how to make guests (and photographers) feel like part of the family. It was a pleasure getting the chance to meet all of you and most importantly, it was my pleasure spending the day documenting one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever met!
Big thanks goes out to my girl Kate for coming along to assist and help me get some great shots on their big day!
To say I was in love with her Badgley Mischka shoes would be another gross understatement!

Let’s just focus on the gorgeous gowns!They had the CUTEST centerpieces for each table. Guests were assigned to a flower-named table and each table was marked by a beautiful bouquet along with a black and white framed picture of Betsy, Jason, and/or the boys holding the chalkboard with the table’s flower name on it! So creative!!I still have dreams about this meal . . .
