Kyle + Megan | Interlachen Country Club Modern Wedding | Orlando, FL

roach-interlachen-country-club-orlando-wedding-photography 37.jpg

Kyle + Megan were a certain kind of wonderful to work with. (See their engagement session here and here) Below is essentially their personal feedback on all the facets of their wedding day — their vision and their vendors. I’ll let their words speak for themselves! For starters, when Megan originally connected with us, she wrote down some of her vision:

I'm calling my theme (for my wedding) "modern tropical". No stereotypical hibiscus flowers, but tons of palms and other touches of Florida in the food. It will be a destination wedding for half (I'm from Kentucky) so I want my guests to feel like they're on vacation. I want a tangible artifact I can take with me from my wedding. I'm most excited about candid moments. I don't like over-posed shots (bridesmaids going gah-gah over my ring, etc.) I want to also make sure everyone who attends get captured at some point, so focusing on the crowd at the ceremony, reaction shots, etc. I of course want gorgeous photos of me and my soon to be husband, too, that we can display in our home.

The Alfond Inn provided our room block for our wedding guests, and also served as our bridal brunch location within Hamilton's Kitchen and our getting ready room. My guests loved the boutique feel of the hotel, and were amazed by the quality for the price! They provided my husband and myself with special surprised along the way, including a room upgrade, free champagne and Winter Park chocolates, and a free one night stay for our 1st anniversary! We cannot wait to relive the memories of our wedding! … Also note…. Fairbanks Florist--what more can I say about Lana that hasn't been said before? My bouquet was insane. I've never seen such a bountiful bouquet, which captured my tastes while presenting a one of a kind work of art. Everything Lana did was first class all the way.
Interlachen Country Club was our dream venue. The staff are incredibly professional. Working in events, I am aware that some food tasting may not be representative of the actual food quality and presentation on the actual wedding day. The food and drinks at ICC were even more delicious and beautifully presented on the day of the wedding!~ Megan

Laura and her team arrived several hours early on our wedding day, which alleviated our time crunch and added more content to our story. She was so generous with her time, and she even presented me with a meaningful gift to remember her and her team by!
Laura was and is truly fearless. She loves to take a chance on what could end up being a perfect shot. She embraced the unpredictable Central Florida weather and found alternatives to our planned outdoor ceremony….Laura is a true professional. A fun, genuine, adventurous one at that! Be open with her about your priorities. She will hone in on those for sure. Be willing to take a photo that you may be originally weary of--it may turn out to be the best one! She has a creative eye and is someone to be trusted! ~ Megan & Kyle

A few other vendor shout outs…. Blast Productions is hands down the nicest, high quality DJ and Photo Booth vendor in the area. I recommend them every chance I can!
Sprinkles Custom Cakes created the cake of our dreams! They cake was visually stunning, adapting a very expensive design into something that fit our budget but still sticking with the look we were going for. Most importantly, the cake was absolutely delicious! We look forward to receiving our anniversary cake and reliving that memory on our 1 year anniversary. ~ Megan & Kyle

“I wanted to have beautiful posed shots of Kyle and myself. Most importantly, I wanted Laura to capture candids of our wedding party and guests. The team photographed us with nearly everyone at the wedding, and I'm so glad we can look back at the photos and remember the support we had from family and friends who were in attendance.” - Megan

Kyle + Megan | Kraft Azalea Garden Engagement Session | Winterpark, FL

These florida sweethearts got fancy and grabbed their favorite luxury champagne Veuve Clicquot for a finale of their Orlando Florida Engagement Session in Kraft Azalea Gardens, Winter Park. By this point Megan & Kyle had gotten comfortable with me and the camera. We had all laughed a little, shared more of our stories and bonded a bit. Truly, it is this point in LKM engagement sessions that I (laura) settle in and breathe the best parts of romance. The goal in all our sessions is to ultimately find a natural, authentic stride where the attention is on each other and not the awkwardness. These two leaned into that and it was such a sweet place of comfort with each other. The backdrop of the gardens was exquisite and we ended on such a note of celebration. Highlights below! (if you didn't see the first part of their engagement session, here is Part 1)

Park Ave + Winter Park Engagement Session | Kyle + Megan Love Story Session Pt 1

I was drawn to Laura's previous work with its dreamy posed shots and lively candids. Once I reached out to her, Laura showed a genuine excitement to shoot our wedding in Winter Park. We instantly clicked over the phone. She took interest in Kyle's and my story, and wanted to document our engagement and wedding--her first in Central Florida! ~ Megan, Bride

Megan + Kyle wanted their engagement session in Orlando to be classy, shnazzy but personal and authentic.  Kyle is a chef and culinary teacher and Megan is Rollins College Associate Event Director. With their refined taste and Megan's acute sense of planning, we were able to meet for coffee the morning of their session, cover a few details, talk timeline, catch up on a bit of their love story and prep for the evening's engagement session around winter park. We grabbed a few casual shots with their fur baby in the rain in the courtyard of Barnie's Kitchen and then reconvened a few hours later all gussied up and ready to strut their stuff in Winter Park. Shout out to Armando's for graciously letting us get cozy in their classy restaurant and messin' with their wine glasses. 

“We had several highlights with LKM and they started at our engagement photo shoot. I highly recommend arranging one prior to the wedding so you can get to know your photographer and learn how to pose you and your partner's bodies for the best shots. Laura took us under her wing, and by the end of that day, we were completely in sync with each other!” ~ Megan + Kyle

We couldn't have asked for a classier couple to be our very first #LKMorlando lovebirds! Thank you so much! See PART TWO of their engagement session in Kraft Azalea Garden's here!
