John and Scotts Wedding Day

I had the privilege of second shooting for the ever talented Jordan Weiland Photography this past January. The couple getting married was John and Scott, partners for 10 years, best friends for longer. They met doing community theatre together at Lake Mirror Theatre. I was ecstatic to be able to capture this wedding along side of Jordan. To me, it isn’t about race, culture, gender, sexual preference, or age, it is truly about capturing the love between two people, and their friends and family.  If you are fortunate enough to find someone {girl or guy} who is willing to love you through the good, bad, and indifferent in all of life’s up and down and support you every step of the way, then I’d say you’re lucky enough 🙂 The ceremony took place where the couple first met, Lake Mirror Theatre. There wasn’t a dry eye in attendance and the couple received a standing ovation at the end. It was truly magical! The reception was held afterwards for family and friends at The Magnolia Building. Tears, laughter, hugs, and a feeling of victory that they could legally celebrate this day with the ones they treasured most resonated throughout the evening. It was such an amazing celebration to be a part of. The energy was so positive and happy, it radiated throughout downtown Lakeland. Here are some of my favorite moments from their wedding.
