For their wedding, Derek and Elizabeth traveled from the midwest to their happiest place on earth – Universal Studios in Florida. Elizabeth grew up vacationing in Orlando and always dreamed of getting married there. Since being together, Derek joined in her excitement of the amusement parks, and the wedding provided a fun vacation for all of their family and friends, as well as a venue as unique as the two of them.
They knew they wanted a fun and casual reception, full of flowing drinks and their favorite food: sushi! But first – they needed to seal the deal with a ceremony. As the date grew near, they knew that their reception venue just wasn’t the vibe they were looking for to say their vows. Upon arriving to the resort, we scoured the property looking for an intimate spot where they could wed. We didn’t want anyone to know in order to keep the space private! As guests arrived, we walked over as a group to a hidden bamboo garden. Derek stood at the altar with his soon to be brother-in-law who officiated and watched as his bride walked down the aisle, escorted by both of her parents. It was truly dreamy and magical in a way that suited Elizabeth and Derek just perfectly.
