It was a pleasure for us to be Morgan and Joshua's photographers (and harpist!) on their big day. BellaCosa Lakeside Lodge and Venue located in Lake Wales was a perfect choice for their wedding. It was such a joy to photograph a wedding at BellaCosa Lakeside Lodge, photographing such a picturesque venue with rich Florida history - where once upon a time Marilyn Monroe, President Calvin Coolidge and Al Capone stayed as guests - was very special, can't wait to come back.
Morgan got ready at the bridal suite on the morning of the wedding. She had her hair and makeup finished and we photographed the story as it developed. These days it's common to photograph the groom getting ready so we made a visit to grooms suite and began his story by photographing Joshua making his final preparations.
Morgan and Joshua’s wedding ceremony was located at the Lakeside Ceremony site, with a magical view of Lake Pierce on one side, and the stunning Spanish architecture of the estate on the other. The mood was set as Kristen played beautiful music on the harp while guests arrive and during the ceremony!
Morgan and Joshua enjoyed spending quality time with their family and friends and loved every bit of their reception. There was a joyful vibe during the reception. We walked around photographing the guests as they relaxed, danced, and talked.
This wedding was a dream and we couldn't be so appreciative and humbled to be a part of it. Thank you Morgan & Joshua for booking us 3 years ago! Enjoy the highlight slideshow above and some of the images from the wedding below.
