Rebecca and Walt: Wedding photo Reveal !

I have been a bad blogger lately because I have been so busy shooting and trying to make editing deadlines but I want to share some things I've shot recently with everyone!

Rebecca and Walt's wedding took place on a rainy, stormy day, May 16th, 2009. They came to Florida for their destination wedding by the water and guests came from all over the place too. It would turn out to be fate that everyone happened to be staying at the hotel because let's just say that after the ceremony and before the reception, everyone was in severe need of a change of clothes!

Rebecca and Walt did a "first look" where they saw each other before the wedding. I've already blogged that so to see them just go to the first look category and take a peek.

Rebecca and Walt, we could not have asked for a better outcome from your wedding. The emotions, laughter and happiness you gave us put so much energy into the day. Your love for one another shone brightly through the clouds, thunder and lightning. We wish you the very best in your life and love for one another and we're truly honored we were able to capture your amazing day!

As always, there's tons of photos! I am horrible about updating my website so this is the best way for everyone to see mini-complete weddings.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

P.S. 2 more weddings and an engagement session to be blogged hopefully by tomorrow!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

These first few photos are right after we did the first look. Doing a first look allows the couple tons of time together to get photos with one another while they still look pretty! We also did all of the family formals before the ceremony and this allowed everyone to go straight to the reception and party!

Rebecca and Walt were married out on the beach area of the beautiful Grand Hyatt. Their reception was in the Hyatt's ballroom.

They had orange lighting accenting the room. It truly was beautiful.

Since it poured on the ceremony, the DJ played "raindrops keep falling on my head.." for the couples grand entrance

Some of the awesome moments during family formals! I truly wish they could all be just like this:

And a couple of comments guests wrote in the guest book that struck me as funny!

Bride down. I repeat, bride down. Poor Rebecca, she fell so much that day. But when she saw the photos, she just rolled in laughter.

And there's nothing particularily amazing about these next couple shots except for the man in them. Onno was a sweet man who unfortunately passed away shortly after the wedding. I was so happy that we got so many great photos that had Onno in them as this was the last time many people ever saw him. May he rest in peace.

That's all folks. Until next time...

Love the rain!! How cool is it they were so happy that even a torrential downpour doesn't matter :)

robin cornett said...

Looking at all these shots and reading about their day has just brought a smile to my face. They look like fun people (and GREAT choice to get the formal pics out of the way before the storm!). It looks like it was a celebration to remember!

Annie Warren said...

Oh yeah.... now THAT'S what I call a celebration! What a fabulous wedding. What fabulous people. I just adore the ceremony shot in the rain. I spent ages examining all the faces and their different reactions to the downpour. Sooooo funny. When life gives you lemons, make copious amounts of lemonade. That's what this gorgeous couple and all their loved ones did. Awesome coverage Alicia! Very well done!

Julie said...

Martha Howell said...

I absolutely LOVE the image of the rain pouring down on their first kiss!

The first image of the post is also another one of my favs -- you did a great job of capturing the emotion of this fun couple's big day!

Mariea Rummel said...

Heather said...

Michael Neugent said...

Wow, looks like a fun wedding and you got some great shots! I really like the one with the piano!

Christina Montemurro said...

What fun it was to look through these! Every photo is so full of joy and spunk - you really feel the energy of the event just as if you were there. Great job!

Sylvia Borgo said...

Great wedding! No matter the rain! Great captures!

The rain comes down hard in your part of the world. Oh dear.....I was glad to see they were nearly done, or at least made a quick finish after the heavens above opened up.

The glee on the faces while dancing with the wet hair tells the story in such a sublime pj way, I loved that capture.

Daisha said...

Lovely vantage point on the glass breaking photo, and I love the depth of field - that is just beautiful. I think the sudden rain shower was a serendipitous event; the expressions and emotions you were able to capture are wonderful. What an unforgettable wedding.

It may have rained but those images still came out nicely. Good job on that stormy wedding.

Khristen said...

The guestbook was awesome! My husband would love the orange colored lights. Great captures!!
