Wow! That is only way I can describe this wedding.
The Harper/ Dorko wedding had many firsts for me. It was the first time I have shot the wedding of a ‘Mother of the Bride’. It is a great feeling when the mother of a former bride/client calls you up to shoot her wedding. This will be the fourth wedding I have done for this group of family and friends, I guess I am an honorary member of the family now.
Speaking of going back to a very first, the Bride’s daughter, was the very first wedding that I worked with the incredible Susie Weiss of Wonderful Weddings. Through that very first wedding, I started to develop a great relationship with Wonderful Weddings and a great relationship with the Harper Family.
It was the first major wedding at the brand new beautiful Waldorf Astoria in Orlando. This resort is beautiful and the service was phenomenal. I never felt like a vendor, I felt like a guest the whole time.
It was the first Platinum Wedding I have shot. This wedding was going to be featured and the bride pulled out the last minute. Good thing, they would have just got in my way.
It was the first wedding I could dedicate the talents of my partner and his Canon 5D Mark II just to artistic shots. And it payed off with some killer moments.
Finally this was my first wedding with a charity casino after party. The talented artist from Flourish created a mini casino complete with slot machines and a slot machine groom’s cake. All the proceeds went to four of the couples favorite charities. That is pretty cool.
