Kristin followed her parents when they moved to Florida and Justin wasn’t far behind them. The couple settled on the West Coast of Florida but wanted a wedding in Orlando.
The Estate House at Cypress Grove is located just south of downtown Orlando in a beautiful sprawling park. The historic home and the land for the park, were a gift from the original family to Orange County. With towering bald cypress trees, streets lined with live oaks, and walking trails, this is a beautiful place for a wedding in Orlando.
Victoria with Intimate Weddings of Orlando worked with the couple to bring together a simple vendor team that would really see their vision for their wedding in Orlando.
Rev. Glynn Ferguson, the owner of Sensational Ceremonies and an Orlando wedding officiant, worked with the couple to create a beautiful custom ceremony that was rich in love and laughter. The touching Christian ceremony was filled with personalized vows, scripture passages, and Justin to write and tell him why they love each other.
Kristin wrote: -he is patient (with me at least)
-he is funny
-he is not easily offended (EVER by almost anything) I admire this about him so much! It is a fantastic and rare quality.
-he is kind to everyone
-we both love our dogs like children
-he works hard
-he pushes me to try new things and go new places -I can tell him ANYTHING and he wont judge or make me feel bad for it -he is the person I want to tell everything to -he is my best friend -we always laugh and have fun together -he doesn’t take himself too serious Honestly he calms my restless spirit and makes me feel at peace with myself and everything around me. I feel better when he is next to me. Even when he is literally making me crazy I know I love him and everything will be okay.

Edmund Rhodes with Rhodes Studios really did a great job photographing this intimate wedding. From shots of the couple getting ready, the walk down the aisle to their ceremony, and on through the cake cutting, he really did a great job of capturing those moments for a lifetime.
Flowers by Lesley worked their floral magic again, with a beautiful bouquet and boutonniere of white roses and variegated Ficus, topped with stems that were wrapped in shite satin. They really looked amazing!
Even with an intimate wedding you should always consider a wedding cake. It feels like it is supposed to be there at every wedding. Justin and Kristin felt the same way so they had the most delicious marble and amaretto wedding cake. Sugar Sugar Cake Boutique made the cake and the aroma of sweet fresh buttercream icing filled the historic house.
We are so thankful for such a sweet couple to work with. We wish them happiness for a lifetime.
