Wedding Wednesday: The Beautiful Bride


Edited to Add:  Meagan's mom, Sheri, signed in with the following info about the place where the bridal photos were taken. 
"Just thought your readers might be interested in knowing that the bridal portrait session was shot at Gaylord Palms Hotel in Orlando. They boast the largest indoor botanical garden in the southeast. Meagan was a little disappointed that we had to wait until two days before the wedding to actually shoot these. (Scheduling problems.) But the fact that hotel guests "OOOH'ed" and "AAAAH'ed" as they walked past was a special treat. So, that's a little behind the scenes info from the MOB."


Today I’m featuring some of Meagan’s bridal portraits and
thought it would be fun to start with some of the
behind-the-scenes shots from that session.
Shots like this . . .

And it’s big sisters like these . . .

And just because a Wedding Wednesday without Nathan is like a day
without sunshine (at least to this particular mama’s heart), I’ll close with one last shot of the happy, blessed groom.

I love Wedding Wednesday. Also love the look on Sarah's face on the last one. Another one of my favourites is the 3td one of Meagan holding the frame.

Whew! Glad we made the "five comment minimum" for continuing Wedding Wednesdays! It's a treat for me too - you arrange and highlight beautifully! Just thought your readers might be interested in knowing that the bridal portrait session was shot at Gaylord Palms Hotel in Orlando. They boast the largest indoor botanical garden in the southeast. Meagan was a little disappointed that we had to wait until two days before the wedding to actually shoot these. (Scheduling problems.) But the fact that hotel guests "OOOH'ed" and "AAAAH'ed" as they walked past was a special treat. So, that's a little behind the scenes info from the MOB. LOL

Since these pictures were taken two days before the wedding, were the flowers silk or real? They looked the same on Saturday at the Wonderful Wedding!!!

Oooh! Gaylord Palms is a beautiful place! Love the "Ice and Snow" exhibit they have there every year! Great choice of a place for wedding portraits!

What an amazing backdrop for bridal photos.

I'm still enthralled with Megan's dress because I don't like strapless dresses but I LOVE hers!

Thanks for all the Wednesday fun!
