Navy and White Wedding at Dubsdread Ballroom | Carolyn and AJ | Orlando, Florida

Where do we begin with Carolyn and AJ?

We could start with how great of a match they are for each other. They balance each other out and you can tell how comfortable they are with each other by AJ’s calmness and Carolyn’s laughter – they truly are best friends. And as we listened to the wonderful speeches and toasts at their wedding, it became even more clear to us that these two will have a beautiful marriage.

Or we could talk about how beautiful their wedding day was from beginning to end. Carolyn wore a gorgeous fit and flare dress with the veil her mother wore on her own wedding day. And of course, AJ looked handsome and charming in his suit and tie (which featured a note from Carolyn on the inside).

The ceremony held at St. Margaret Mary Church was stunning and incredibly special with personal touches. And their reception? Absolutely beautiful with the perfect weather for gorgeous photos and dancing!

But I think what stands out the most to us is how loved and celebrated these two are. It was obvious that their friends and family love Carolyn and AJ so much.

And with a support system like that, you simply can’t go wrong.

Because like the pastor said at their ceremony, marriage takes work on both sides. Marriage means that you’ll love each other through it all; it doesn’t mean it’ll necessarily be each, but it’ll be worth it.

And having a huge support system that Carolyn and AJ have with their friends and family only makes it even better.

Carolyn and AJ,

It was truly an honor to capture your wedding day. You two have such a bright future ahead of you and we are so excited to follow along and see where marriage and life takes you. A big congratulations to you both – you’re going to love marriage life!
