Who ever said winter weddings can’t have a burst of color? The first thing I noticed after my journey to Orlando towards the Harmony Gardens to capture the future Gonzalezs’ union, was the beautiful gardens and impeccable flower arrangements by impekable flowers (pun intended.) The theme of the wedding day was Garden Boho, and did they embody that theme? I think the photos say it all. Christi’s beautiful bohemian inspired lace dress was from White Magnolia Bridal. She got dressed in the cutest bridal suite, surrounded by her bridesmaids, and flower girls. The suite had plenty of light from the windows, which we DEFINITELY played around with. .
Black suits? That’s so yesterday! Julian made his debut in a rich burgundy suit jacket and pants, with a floral tie to match the garden theme. Weddings have become second nature to Julian and his guys, given that they are a pretty tight knit group of friends, and have been a part of plenty weddings in the past few years. The only newbie was Julians nephew who was a joy to be around, and might’ve closed the sliding door on me a few times. He’s forgiven.
When the time came, Christi emerged from these beautiful curtains, and at the moment Julian was already in tears. Faith plays a huge role in their relationship, and they knew it would continue into their marriage, they had a worship session before they were announced man and wife. Shortly after they shared their special handshake before the infamous kiss.
During the reception Julian’s best man, Alex spoke about how loyal Julian was and with the little he had, he’d always give much, in the sweetest speech. Saying he would give the shirt of his back for his friends, and no doubt he’d do the same for Christi. Toni, Christi’s maid of honor, followed with another sweet speech about her unique relationship with both of them and how ecstatic she was when she found out they both clicked.
The night ended with love, laughter, and lots of dancing! Congratulations to the Gonzalezs’, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your big day! You always have a photographer and friend in me!
