Lots of things to love about Kiah and Dock's wedding! The Grand Bohemian, where they got ready, is so gorgeous to photograph. I love the rich colors and directional lighting. Kiah's dress was stunning! The layers, the detail and the bodice were so elegant. Dock gave his bride a lovely set of earrings as a wedding day gift. Kiah gave Dock a painting of a scene he remarked on three years ago. As they looked over a beautiful farm on rolling hills, he made the comment, "This would make a great painting." She remembered, and had it commissioned as his wedding day gift!
Kiah and Dock said their vows in the chapel of First Presbyterian Church of Orlando. Dr. David Swanson presided over the beginning of their marriage in the historic space.
Afterwards, they wanted portraits at Lake Eola with downtown Orlando in the background. The swans put on a good show and then the sprinklers went off! :) The next part was so fun. They decided to take a mini break and have a drink at the restaurant in their venue! Just the two of them! Some patrons at the bar bought them some celebratory drinks.
Their reception was at Historic Dubsdread. The venue was gorgeously decorated and had breathtaking florals from one of my favorites, Lee James! He perfectly matched Kiah's garden flower/milk glass theme. Complete with touches of gold! The guests also had a fire pit to roast marshmallows and make some s'mores.
Kiah was serenaded with the sweetheart of Sigma Chi song by Dock and his friends. It was a wonderful day full of laughter and joy and lots of smiles!
Congratulations Kiah and Dock!
