The groom was from the United States and the bride was from Great Britain. They met in the middle, in Orlando Florida for a fantastic wedding celebration! Literally, this wedding was a coming together of two cultures. Just looking at the attached photos will provide one with exactly their reasons for selecting Paradise Cove in Lake Buna Vista Florida as the spot for the wedding. The venue has water, tress, Spanish Moss, and floral, in abundance. It has a south seas feel to it that creates the illusion that visitors are on a South Seas Island. Just beautiful!
Lon Tosi of Celebration, Florida and the Orlando Team of Officiants from Sensational Ceremonies worked with Camy and Ed to create a custom wedding ceremony that they will remember forever. A very touching moment in the ceremony came when the bride and groom invited their extended family members to join them as they participated in the Sand Ceremony. They combined white and black sand into a large vase. Their first experience of “family cooperation” was plainly in view as the eight-family members collaborated in how to sequence the blending. It all went off without a hitch. The family members, by the way were surprised during the wedding with that request to participate in the sacred ceremony. Such an honor!
Lon also, assisted in conducting a rehearsal for the couple along Olivia from Runway Events was in charge of the organization and execution of the event, and they did and outstanding job of making it all happen with flawless execution.
Misty Miotto Photography took many photos and video of the entire event, and we can’t wait to see samples of their amazing work. Misty and her team are so very talented! Of course, the fantastic sound for both the ceremony and the reception was provided by the great team from Soundwave Entertainment. The cocktail reception featured music provided by Coco Bean Productions. The bridesmaids looked so wonderful due in part to the amazing work on hair and makeup provide by Once Upon a Beauty. A Chair Affair provided rentals for the event. And we cannot forget Cocktails Catering. They are a standard fixture at Paradise Cove and help to create a wonderful air of fun and high level service.
And two worlds did come together as it happened on a sunny day in Orlando.
