For Betsy and Michael, family comes first. So instead of a destination wedding (that could have been difficult for relatives to attend), the Florida native couple decided to have their wedding five minutes from where they both grew up – right at home in Orlando, Florida. The day began at Betsy’s childhood church where the couple said ‘I do’ in front of 200 friends and family members. Betsy joined her husband-to-be at the altar wearing an ivory lace illusion dress and carrying a luscious arrangement of ranunculus, roses and garden roses, and peonies designed by Lee James Floral Designs, Inc. Michael and his groomsmen had donned classic black tuxedos while the bridesmaids wore floor length champagne dresses. After the ceremony, the couple followed guests to Isleworth Golf & Country Club for a lakeside reception. The clear tent under which the festivities commenced was decorated to the nines with fabric draping and chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. The farmhouse tables were adorned with runners lush greenery and flora abounded with abandon. Guests sat down to a delicious meal before the couple cut their almond and carrot cake designed by the venue. While the newlyweds took their first dance, the bride’s parents surprised them with an artist painting a portrait of the unforgettable moment. After the couple exited the dance floor, the Leonard Brothers Band struck up a lively tune and the guests danced long into the evening. A celebration of family, love, and irreplaceable moments, Betsy and Michael’s wedding was utterly timeless. Orlando-area wedding photographer Kristen Weaver Photography captured every blissful moment of the couple’s big day.
