Where do I even start with this one?! Tiff and Shawn’s wedding was a multi-day event and cultural celebration. It was important to these two that they honored their Hindu and Western cultures for their wedding in Orlando – so they made a whole weekend out of it!
I love it when clients highlight their culture on their wedding day; seeing the unique elements shine through is always amazing. For their beautiful wedding weekend, Tiff and Shawn rented Bella Collins, a stunning Italian-inspired country club in Orlando, Florida! We hopped on a plane for a fun weekend away and were overjoyed with the beauty, love, and fun our weekend was filled with!
Celebrating Tiff and Shawn was easy, and seeing how much time, love, and effort they and their loved ones poured into this day was amazing. There was so much joy surrounding everyone the entire weekend, and capturing these sweet times was such a treat!
Our sweet couple, Tiff and Shawn, have been together for so many years and have such a deep love for one another. They are the PERFECT match, too. They have waited for this day for what felt like forever, and watching them receive an outpouring of love and support from their families made me so incredibly happy for them.
These two originally got married in 2020 in classic covid-fashion. They didn’t want to wait to be married! So, they tied the knot and waited it out. Celebrating with their loved ones was important to them, but committing their love to one another through marriage was equally as important. So, fast forward three beautiful married years, and we FINALLY got to celebrate Tiff and Shawn with a big celebration!
It felt as though we were a real part of their family. When working with them, they and their family lifted us and ensured we were cared for. It was so sweet! They had a multi-day cultural celebration that beautifully blended their cultures, and it was soooo incredible to witness. I say it all the time, but I just am SO lucky to be able to capture moments like these as a career. Seriously it doesn’t get any better than this!
I mean it when I tell you this was one of the most breathtakingly beautiful wedding celebrations I’ve ever seen! I was impressed by the immense attention to detail, especially at their Hindu wedding. The decor was full of color and joy and loaded with tradition.
Witnessing their culture and religion and seeing how special these celebratory moments are to them is always an amazing thing to be a part of. But the outfits were STUNNING. I mean, WOW. I was so obsessed with the color, sparkles, and details. Their Hindu wedding attire was some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. I’M SO OBSESSED.
The beauty of their wedding weekend wasn’t over yet! The next day, we began the celebration from the top with a Western-style ceremony and reception. My friends, it was equally iconic.
Bella Collins is a gorgeous country club in Orlando, Florida, that looks like it belongs in Italy! I was immediately drawn to the beautiful architecture and adored the classic look of the day. I was still on cloud nine over the beauty of Tiff and Shawn’s Hindu wedding the day prior, so I was beyond blown away by the overwhelming beauty of their Western wedding.
To start, the attire was incredible! Shawn’s black and white tux was beautifully crafted and soooo glamorous. Meanwhile, Tiffan’ys Galia Lahav dress… JAW DROPPER.
The ceremony was kept simple and allowed the beautiful architecture of the venue to shine, but the reception was glowing. The grand reception space was GORG. It featured tons of glistening candles and luscious, beautifully crafted flowers. One of our favorite details that Tiff and Shawn incorporated into their wedding day was specialty lighting. We always recommend to all of our couples: invest in top quality lighting! A little goes a long way in photos and video, and looks sooooo beautiful. We had so much fun perfectly framing the pictures and capturing video in a way that allowed the twinkle lights to emit the magic you felt in that room.
I was in absolute awe of their entire weekend and could not think of a better way to have wrapped things up than with a romantic cake cutting and epic sparkler send-off. Tiff and Shawn know how to have a good time while designing an amazing experience. From a gorgeous culturally-infused Hindu wedding to their glamorous Western-style reception, Tiff and Shawn’s wedding in Orlando was worth the 3-year wait.
