As a wedding photographer, I have had the pleasure of witnessing countless love stories unfold through the lens of my camera. However, Daniela and Alicia’s wedding at Club Lake Plantation in Apopka was a truly special and heartwarming celebration of love. From the moment I met Daniela years ago at her friend’s wedding we just clicked and I knew there was something extraordinary about her. Little did I know that she would FORCE me (ha) to travel to her wedding at the Club Lake Plantation in Apopka to capture the magic of her own love story with Alicia.
The Love Story:
Daniela and Alicia’s journey to the altar was nothing short of a fairy tale. They met through a mutual friend, and Alicia, determined and patient, spent a decade trying to win Daniela’s heart. It wasn’t until they attended Alicia’s uncle’s wedding together that the sparks truly flew. From that day forward, Daniela and Alicia became inseparable, embarking on a decade-long journey of laughter, tears, and unwavering love.
Well, let’s just say the venue was absolutely worth the trip! Club Lake Plantation in Apopka provided the perfect backdrop for Daniela and Alicia’s big day. Nestled amidst lush greenery and serene landscapes, the venue offered a picturesque setting for not only their ceremony, but all of their portraits too! From rustic barns to scenic lakes, every corner of Club Lake Plantation provided an enchanting canvas for capturing the couple’s special moments.
The First Look:
Daniela and Alicia decided to share a first look before the ceremony, a moment that was as emotional as it was heartwarming. This thoughtful choice not only allowed the couple to cherish an intimate moment together but also provided us with ample time to capture numerous portraits of them and their wedding party. As the sun began to set early, this strategic decision ensured that we maximized our time for capturing beautiful moments without feeling rushed after the ceremony. I highly recommend incorporating a first look into wedding plans, especially when daylight becomes scarce during the evening hours.
I’ll just say it… it was a PERFECT DAY. The weather was AMAZZZINGGGG, The ceremony was picturesque. i had a blast yelling at the fam during the family photos (They did too, I promise) There was just so much love and laughter… but my favorite part? THE PARTY… The dance floor was always full and the music was PUMPING. I mean everyone, including me, was dancing. The celebration reached its peak with the tradition of the Hora Loca, a festive hour where the party reached new heights of excitement. It was night filled with endless dancing, laughter echoing through the venue, and the unmistakable sound of celebration that resonated until the final beats of the Hora Loca, leaving an indelible mark on Daniela and Alicia’s wedding day.
Daniela and Alicia, thank you for choosing me to be a part of your story. Your wedding day was as perfect as you are! Love you LOTS!
