Traci & Steve: Cypress Grove Wedding Sneak Peak

The Estate House at Cypress Grove | ORLANDO | FLORIDA

When Traci first met us one of the first things she said was, "I found you because of the Southern Weddings Blog and my goal is to get my wedding in there!" Let me be the first to tell you, if anyone could plan a wedding worthy of Southern Weddings Magazine, it is Traci! Don't believe me? Maybe I'll send you a copy of the itemized 5 page list of details she had incorporated into the day. ;) Seriously, this woman is a wedding planning goddess!

Traci and Steve were married Saturday in an elegant outdoor ceremony at Cypress Grove Park. We had such a fantastic time and met so many wonderful people that we are excited to tell you all about in our bigger post later on. We took more pictures than we ever have at a wedding! There are so many images to go through but I just couldn't help but pick 10 for you all to see. Enjoy these teaser images, we'll be posting the rest up in the next month. I absolutely cannot wait for you to see all of her detail- eye-candy goodness! Here's some hints: there were 3 pairs of high heels, 2 dogs, 2 dresses, and different centerpieces on each table!

    Absolutely amazing. I wish I could be surprised at how good you guys are, but you've set the bar so incredibly high, I pretty much expect to be blown away anytime I see your stuff. Bravo, Natecka.

    Absolutely stunning. You and Traci made a great team... fabulous images and plenty of fabulousness to shoot! That ring is yummy... it has an heirloom feel to it; would love to know if it is one or not. I love the wedding party shot in front of the house, too. You knocked this one out of the park!

    I am stunned, Traci is my baby Cousin (ok, not such a baby anymore)! Her wedding was amazing and all the details just screamed "Traci"! I never dreamed that you would be able capture the essence of the wedding or the wonderful, spirited, and beauty of my crazy Traci!! You did though, the real Traci just radiates from those shots. Plus, that last amazing shot made the squirt look tall, very cool!! Oh, and Steve you looked pretty spiffy yourself. Thanks for the beautiful job creating vivd memories for the whole family to treasure!!!
