I cannot believe how fast time flies by! The beautiful couple we are featuring today just celebrated their one year wedding anniversary! That is the special reason why we are bringing y’all this Romantic Summer Wedding at Luxmore Grande Estate.
A grand wedding at Luxmore Grande
Luxmore Grande is one of our favorite venues. Not only are the grounds breathtaking, but the inside has so much to offer as well. The rooms are beautiful to walk through and the architecture adds so much character.
The grand staircase is one of my favorite spots. I always make sure to use it in photos. We used it a lot for Alicia’s getting ready photos. We took some fun photos of her and her bridesmaids before they got dressed. Then, when she was all done getting ready, we used the stairs to feature the details of her gorgeous wedding dress. She topped her look off with a classic bun, which looked beautifully elegant on her!
To complement her classic look, Anthony opted for another classic- the 007 look. His black tux was the perfect match for his beautiful bride. We are just loving their wedding day looks!
Getting the wedding started!
Before starting the ceremony, Alicia had a sweet first look with her dad at the stairs before heading over to get married. Luxmore Grande has beautiful locations both indoors and out for ceremony options and we love them all!
Our couple opted for an indoor location, which is quite common for those hot Florida summer days. We love the large windows and the beautiful chandelier that hangs right over the altar. It is such a romantic setting for a ceremony.
We took some beautiful portraits of our newly married couple along with some lovely photos with their family. There is so much love in this family and it was so great to be able to capture all of it during their special day. They are an adorable bunch, so getting those family shots on the yard were some of my favorites of the day. By the way, their sunset photos were absolute perfection!
A reception celebration and a grand exit in style
The celebration of the newlyweds continued on in their reception. Their beautiful ceremony space had been converted into their gorgeous reception. The tables were decorated with beautiful rose centerpieces in shades of lavender and pinks made by the bride. Our couple even managed to steal away for a few moments during the reception for some extra portraits. We love it when couples escape for a few minutes like this, because really it’s an opportunity to take a break and reflect on the wonderful day they are having.
Everything was lovely and their family and friends really knew how to party it up! Once our couple decided to head off to begin their next chapter, they made sure to have a grand exit. Guests lined the stairs outside equipped with sparklers and cheers. After making it through the path of sparklers, Alicia and Anthony went straight to their ride and headed off into the night.
We had such a lovely time at Alicia and Anthony’s romantic summer wedding. We congratulate them on celebrating their one year anniversary and are looking forward to all the joys life has to offer them!
