Melissa and David are both film makers. So you can imagine, it could have been full hands on, or hands off. Luckily they are the types that trust those around them, and let us do what we do best, shoot. You can tell David is the goofy one, and Melissa alluring. The engagement shoot we shot all available light, mostly at night in downtown Orlando. It’s the first time I had all of their friends come along for the engagement shoot, from bar to bar, it was a blast.
The wedding was part old school Cuban, mixed with progressive art school vibe. Of course there were great Cuban cigars, considering Melissa’s family are the owners of Padron Cigars. The ceremony was held at Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Miami, the same church Alison and I got married in, and we attend. The reception was held at Viscaya Museum & Gardens. The whole event was planned by Cristina Llorente of Cymbidium Events. Again I was fortunate to work with Julien from Merge Studios who filmed the engagement and wedding. The bride’s dress was from Ever After Miami.
