By the time Chris & Leanna’s wedding rolled around we were already close friends. You see, they planned their St Augustine Wedding for two years! Everything had to be perfect for their crystal ballroom photography! When I first met Chris & Leanna it was for their engagement session at Park Ave in Orlando, FL.
Chris & Leanna share a once in a lifetime kind of love. It is so evident in the way that they look at each other. Also in the smiles they share…. pure & genuine joy can be felt! They both perfectly planned every detail of their wedding day from the dusty blue details to the epic dance party.
At first, Chris and Leanna both got ready at the beautiful World Renaissance Hotel in St. Augustine, FL. These spacious hotel rooms were the perfect place to get ready with their crew.
Just downstairs we took advantage of the gorgeous tree lined path that surrounded the lakefront hotel. On account of the early sunset that would happen during their ceremony, Chris & Leanna opted for an intimate first look.
Crystal ballroom photography makes any wedding day more special.
I am so thankful for the relationships I get to build with my amazing couples. And Chris & Leanna are still close friends.
Leanna explained our relationship like this: “Arielle captured our engagement and wedding photos and went above and beyond our expectations! Not only was she amazing on our actual wedding day but took the time to check up on me during the crazy wedding planning process. My whole family was so impressed by her level of professionalism, and the beautiful pictures as well. I seriously could not have asked for a better photographer, thank you Arielle!”
