Eloping in Orlando | Downtown Orlando | Kathryn and Mitchell

There is something about an intimate elopement that just speaks to me. I have noticed that elopements and destination weddings have become more and more popular lately. This week we’re Eloping in Orlando with Kathryn and Mitchell. When Kathryn contacted me I was thrilled! Don’t get me wrong, I love weddings of any size. However with elopements, being able to focus solely on the couple and seeing them interact with each other is special.

No matter if you’re eloping or planning a larger wedding, as long as the couple thinks everything is perfect then that’s really all that matters. Kathryn and Mitchell are definitely a perfect match. They are not afraid of being spontaneous, like when they got lost in Chicago. Instead of freaking out, they ended up discovering cool places and even stumbled upon a festival. She even has the first gift he ever gave her. A photo of a flower he drew for her.

A Sweet Proposal

Their proposal story tugs at my heartstrings. Mitchell was on leave during a military tour overseas. They were packing on his last night before he had to go back. Mitchell picked that moment to propose to Kathryn and then they parted ways so he could complete his tour. There is nothing like coming back from a deployment and getting ready to plan forever with each other.

From Ohio to I Do

They made the trek down from Ohio on a lovely day in March. I love that Kathryn was there to help Mitchell get ready for their wedding. However, Mitchell was kicked out so Kathryn could get ready to surprise him in her dress later. I loved their shoe choices! Her light blue crushed velvet TOMS not only looked fabulous, but I’m pretty sure they were very comfortable. His Gucci shoes looked great too, but hers stole the show in my book. They were perfect for running around Downtown Orlando!

Touring Around Downtown Town

After getting ready, we headed out to do their first look. You can tell how happy Mitchell is to Kathryn in her full wedding look. She looked stunning and they look so amazing together. We went to the Grand Bohemian Orlando to take some more photos. Then we went inside The Bösendorfer Lounge where we got photos with their Imperial Grand Bösendorfer piano. It’s one of only a handful in the world!

Once we spent time inside and outside of the Grand Bohemian Orlando, we then moved on to other places. There is no shortage of locations in Downtown Orlando. After our time with Kathryn and Mitchell came to an end, they continued their eloping journey in an intimate ceremony at Leu Gardens. Eloping in Orlando was a magical day spent with two wonderful people. We love their story and we hope you all enjoy these photos from their special day.
