Katie & Justin's Classic Wedding in Orlando: Luxmore Grande Estate Wedding

Justin and Katie stood there in the grand room at the Luxmore Grande Estate on their wedding day, holding each other’s hands, staring in to each other eyes.  The sun was beaming through the windows and the AC was cooling the air. After have seen each other for the first time that day, they decided to exchange vows.  As Katie began her vows, Justin listened attentively, trying to keep his composure but failing.  His eyes swelled and tears began to roll down his cheeks.  He’s loved Katie since the day they met and he was about to marry the love of his life.  Seeing Justin, Katie couldn’t help but tear up, too.  She fought back her tears while trying to finish her vows and by the end, both Justin and Katie were balling.


Justin and Katie’s wedding at the Luxmore Grande Estate was filled with so much emotion and so many happy tears.  Between the first look, the vows, and the speeches, Justin and Katie’s hearts were full.


…” Just a girl, waiting for a ride, ready to put her hands in the air.  Just a girl waiting for the school bus.  A girl about to graduate from high school, a girl about to leave for Florida. Your mother and I look at you the same way we did those days and today, with great pride…” Katie’s dad said with nostalgia as he looked at his daughter.


Katie’s mom couldn’t help but hold back the tears.  She was witnessing her daughter get married; the daughter she helped raise. Mom was likely admiring the women Katie has become and reminiscing on all those small moments.  Fleeting moments where Katie went off to kindergarten for the first time or when she fell off her bike or when she packed her bags to move thousands of miles away. A mom full of pride and joy, watching her daughter add the title “Mrs.” to her name.


Justin & Katie, thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your wedding at Luxmore Grande Estate.  It was the most beautiful and unique day! I am so happy for you two!  Congratulations again!  May your days ahead be filled with growth and love!
