I was privileged to photograph Bethany and Lance's wedding a few weeks ago. The couple chose the Magnolia Building in Downtown Lakeland, right next to Hollis Gardens. The Magnolia Building is a fantastic location to celebrate their wedding, with so many options for stunning wedding photos and Downtown Lakeland as a backdrop, it's refreshing to come back to Magnolia Building for a wedding! Bethany and Lance are a lovely and blissful couple, I was very fortunate to photograph at their wedding in a gorgeous venue like Magnolia Building.
I always start the day by photographing the bride getting ready. Bethany began her preparations at her home. I really enjoy photographing bridal prep as it gives you a chance to get to know the bridal party a little better. The air at the AirBnB (pun intended haha) that Lance rented was filled with excitement as he prepared himself for the day.

The wedding ceremony was filled with emotions and laughter. Bethany and Lance exchanged their wedding vows in front of the beautiful decorated fireplace inside the Magnolia Building. The amazing team of Perfect Day Productions, transformed the wedding ceremony area into the wedding reception while we took family photos and people mingled during the cocktail hour. It was a lovely atmosphere and everyone really enjoyed themselves.
I always fall in love with fantastic Summer weddings. We had a really sunny day, which always helps to make everyone happy, and it just meant everyone could get some fresh air on the day. Bethany and Lance's wedding was such a great day and I'm sure they will be really happy together. Thank you for trusting us to capture your day!
