Shannon + Luke Wedding | Orlando Museum of Art | First Presbyterian Church of Orlando

Orlando Museum Of Art | Orlando Wedding

 

Shannon and Luke are so dang sweet and their love story is even sweeter!

How did you meet?  Luke & I met in the 6th grade at The Christ School in Orlando…which ironically enough, is the school of First Presbyterian Church of Orlando, where our ceremony was held. Who would have guessed we would be married in that very same place 11 years later.
What attracted you the most to Luke?  His passion. He is the guy who does not do anything he does not agree with or can’t put his whole heart into. It’s a fantastic quality to have and I am inspired by it.
How did Luke propose?   Vegas baby! We flew to Las Vegas in February 2013, for a vacation that I was told was my Christmas present. Little did I know, he brought a gorgeous engagement ring through airport security and managed to hide it from me until the 4th day of our trip. As we watched the Bellagio fountains, he told me to have someone take our picture. I handed my camera to a woman walking by and asked her to take a picture of us…when I turned back around Luke was on one knee! I cried tears of joy throughout our entire steak dinner.
What inspired your wedding vision?  Our personal style. We’re the couple that loves a fancy party but isn’t afraid to get on the dance floor in our black tie attire. Picking our venue was the first piece of the puzzle and we loved the idea of using the gorgeous atmosphere it provided to create a formal, glamorous evening. We added lanterns and candles for a romantic effect. We both could eat traditional southern food any day of the week so it was only fitting that we had brisket, crab cakes, and a mac and cheese bar thrown in the mix!
What was your favorite design element from your wedding?
The custom wine labels we had made and put on a bottle for each table. They had a big “O” on them along with our names and our wedding date. I think it added a personal touch to the design and they were fun for our guests to grab on their way out too!
What are some DIY details that you had?  When we first found the lanterns used on the tables, they were the PERFECT design but they were a grey color. My grandfather actually painted every single lantern a pretty shade of champagne/blush for me – It was super sweet of him! I guess being the only granddaughter will convince a man to do things like that.
What is the most memorable moment from your wedding day? There are many! It makes me smile just thinking about that day. There was a moment where Luke & I walked outside to get some air (we were hot from cutting a rug on the dance floor) and we just sat for a moment. It was a special, peaceful moment. We could see all of our friends and family celebrating and we both looked at each other like “We did this! We’re actually married!”. I would encourage every bride and groom to really take a moment to step back and soak in what is happening around you!
How was your experience with us?  Amazing.  You are fantastic at what you do, you are a fun couple to work with and your work is professional. The quality is second to none and we are THRILLED with our photos. It takes talent to really capture the day as it was, and I think you did just that. Thanks, AOP 🙂

So here is to Shannon & Luke may all of your days be filled with love.
