Beautiful Orlando Wedding Photography at the Rosen Center

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Matthew and Philander Mitchell! We had a blast shooting their wedding on October 26th at the Rosen Center on International Drive. Matthew grew up in the same neighborhood as Stan, Lake Conway East, yet it took his Tampa bride to find us via The Knot. Funny how things work out. Now, the newlyweds have relocated to Atlanta and are hopefully taking advantage of this perfect snuggling weather! Many thanks to Shanae Hall, owner of Party Life Productions, for all of her help that day.

Jenna & Garrison’s romantic Orlando wedding

October 6th was an amazing day for Jenna Marra and Garrison Muller for many reasons, but mainly because it was the day they vowed to spend the rest of their lives together. Jenna walked down the aisle at Sanlando United Methodist Church in a stunning ivory beaded mermaid dress by Lazaro.

The celebrations continued on at the Sheraton North under the talented wing of Master DJ Mr. Darrin Shifrel of DJ Fun Factory. The Photo Booth (by Scott Trippler at was lots of fun for guests young and old, and everything very well managed and overseen by the Sheraton’s Jana McGreal. Congratulations Jenna and Garrison!!

Kathleen & Craig’s wedding at the Waldorf Astoria

Congratulations go out to Kathleen (Wilson) and Craig Dunn whose Orlando wedding we had the privilege of photographing this past September. We feel like family now as we have also photographed sister Jennifer’s wedding to Matt Raspallo a few years back.

Pictures started at the house where Katleen’s hair was done by Monica Blount at Vamp Studio, and her makeup by Kathleen’s elegant dress came from Solutions Bridal in the Millenia Mall, and her fragrant flowers from Lana Pelham Faulkner. What a genuinely nice couple!

Their students at Windermere Preparatory School are very fortunate. The ceremony took place at St. Charles in College Park and the reception at the fabulous Waldorf Astoria. There is something to be said for a proficient helpful and capable staff and that is exactly what we encountered at the Waldorf Astoria where we had the pleasure of working with Jane McLean. She and her staff were very attentive and on point with everything to do with Kathleen and Craig’s reception! All of which was captured by the charming duo of ProOneVideo, Mark and Lisa LeGrand.

Thank you to all the wonderful vendors we had the pleasure of working with that day and congratulations again to Kathleen and Craig!

Scott & Mary Beth’s beautiful wedding

Scott and Mary Beth’s relationship has been an uphill battle since the beginning.

A few days before their first date, Scott committed to serving with the United States Army. They dated for the four months prior to him leaving for boot camp in Oklahoma. After that, their only correspondence was through letters, as he wasn’t even allowed to use a phone during this time, let alone come home for a visit. Mary Beth is a middle school teacher for OCPS, and Scott is now stationed in Ft.Lewis, Washington, about 3.000 miles away. He is a Specialist with the C Co 702d BSB 4th Brigade 2nd Infantry Division.

During Scott’s first Christmas in Washington, he proposed to Mary Beth with a hand crafted ring he designed with the help of Plantation Jewelers in Winter Garden. Wanting a ring that would be special and unique, for his bride-to-be, Scott worked diligently with the jeweler through emails and phone calls. Those of you who have seen the ring, know the results were superb!

Mary Beth found her dress, perfect in both simplicity and elegance, at Dillards Department Store. Dresses for the bridesmaids and flower girls came from David’s Bridal in Altamonte Springs. The beautiful flower bouquets and table arrangements were designed by Jonathan’s Flowers of Winter Park. Actually, Jonathan is the person who suggested that we consider using S&S Photography for our pictures. As I perused their website, I was instantly “hooked” with the gorgeous and creative photos that Charlene and Stan had taken at other events. At our very first meeting, I was extremely impressed by Charlene’s professionalism and charming personality. Also, she and Stan were most accommodating with our sensitive situation, due to the possibility of Scott being deployed.

The day of the wedding began and continued with cloudy and rainy skies. Needless to say, we had to “change horses in midstream” and move an outdoor wedding to an inside location. Working to make sure things ran smoothly, these photographers took all this in stride, so there was no added stress on bride and groom. Charlene and Stan, through their unique and innovative photography, have helped to make incredible wedding memories for us for years to come.
