Toni & Jason November 10, 2017 | Walt Disney World | Orlando, FL Wedding Photographers

**Please note – the pictures in this blog are just highlights from Toni & Jason’s day.  It is concentrating on them and their story. all final, edited images will be delivered to Toni & Jason approximately 12 weeks from their wedding date.

I met Toni on a Facebook page.  She originally contacted us for just engagement photos.  We spent the evening taking pictures and immediately clicked.  She wanted sunset photos and they turned out AMAZING!!!  Go take a peek at them HERE – and don’t be jealous as to how gorgeous they are!  After their session, they invited us to dinner and we chatted about the wedding among many other topics.  A couple of weeks later, Toni messaged me to see if we would be interested in photographing their wedding.  How is that even a question?!?!

So, we started planning.  Then Harvey hit.  Then Irma hit.  Then Maria hit.  Jason is in the Navy.  He was supposed to be deployed for Harvey and then Irma.  Maria was the one who deployed him and off he went to Puerto Rico.  They weren’t sure if he was going to make it home for the wedding.  I was ready to grab a row boat and go get him.  Or suggest Skype of FaceTime.  😉  But, thankfully, he made it home.  Just in time.

We made it to the Wilderness Lodge for getting ready photos early and not so bright…

If you need hair and makeup done, call Tara Fontana with Fairytale Hair and Makeup.  Seriously.  She and her group of girls are AH-MAZING!!!  You won’t be disappointed.  They do amazing work.  Every.  Single.  Time…

Toni seeing herself for the first time as a bride…

In the meantime, Steve was still hanging out with Jason…

She’s on her way, Jason…

We usually don’t stray too far away from the main staircase in the Grand Floridian for pre-ceremony photos.  However, the best man wasn’t feeling well and needed something to eat.  So, Steve, Jason and all of the guys headed to the Gasparilla Grill.  While they were there, Steve took advantage of the marina.

Time for some cartoons…


Sharp dressed men…

The bride has arrived…


As we were heading back downstairs, Steve asked Toni to stop.  Once again, I am floored.  I love these next two photos…

Toni – you are absolutely breathtaking!

The girls also had to watch some cartoons…

Toni & Jason’s daughter, Colette, is the cutest little nugget!

Shoes!!!

Ceremony time…


They did a family sand ceremony…

Jason said vows to Colette, too.  And gave her a beautiful ring.  There was not a dry eye in the place.  Including me…

Husband & Wife!  #UntilTheEndOfUs

Toni & Jason’s Guests were awesome!  Such a fantastic group to work with.

On our way to catch the monorail, we stopped in the Grand Floridian’s Main Lobby for a couple more pictures…

This is her Friday attire.  You should see what she wears on Saturday!  (I “borrowed” that from Toni’s bridesmaids.)  🙂

Steve took this picture with my camera using my settings.  Is it technically his picture or mine?  It doesn’t really matter, because I love it!

Time to party!

They had a caricature artist.  Such a cool gift idea for their Guests.

Just look at that view…

Toni & Jason chose to do a bridal portrait session with us as soon as their reception was over.  We had so much fun.  We started at Toni’s favorite Resort – Fort Wilderness.

What do you mean you don’t play checkers in your wedding attire?

Look at that look she is giving him.  He was winning.  😉

Then, two Cast Members came over to say hi.  They had gifts.  Mr. & Mrs. Mickey & Minnie pins and a Chip & Dale Christmas ornament.  Their very first ornament as a married couple.  🙂

Yeeeeaaaaah –  Jason won…


Beautiful rings…

We then headed back to the Wilderness Lodge…




Toni & Jason – Thank you so much for allowing Steve and me to spend your day with you.  We enjoyed every minute.  We love you to pieces and are so excited you are in our lives.  Jason – Thank you for your service and all you do to keep our country safe. Toni – Thank you for being a military wife and supporting Jason.  I admire you both for what you do.  We wish you many, many years of love and happiness.  Remember to keep a sense of humor and always laugh.  It will help in the rough patches.
