Lex & Erik's Florida Destination Wedding

I felt like the luckiest photographer in the world when Alex + Erik asked me to shoot their destination wedding at Loew’s Portofino Bay Resort in Orlando, Florida this year. Surrounded by beautiful bays, Italian-themed infrastructure, palm trees and stunning views… WHATTTT a beautiful venue. Did I mention that there’s a boat that shuttles you across the bay into the city walk? Or private pools with waterfalls and tiki bars? A spa? Even better, I dragged my mom and sister along for a mini girls trip - and it was the moossst perfect work trip/min vaca!

Every single detail of the Rasky wedding was styled to perfection: Fluffy florals with low-hanging wine accents, matching floral bridesmaid rompers, Lex’s glittery Kate Spade keds, I could go on. From the moment I walked into the getting ready suite, I knew it was going to be a good day. The room was filled with contagious joy of Lex’s best friends and closest family members - none of which could compliment her without bursting into tears.

I think I cried more throughout this wedding day than any other I’ve photographed. From a tear-jerking first look, the most thoughtful vows, the sweetest special dances…my mascara was running down my face by the time of the reception! After the first dances were over, Erik’s surprised Lex with two Disney princesses, who stayed for the duration of the reception. All was fine and dandy until the end… when DJ played ‘Renegade’ in a room full of ‘yinzers’. (See last photo for a good laugh!!)

Erik and Alex, thank you so much for allowing me the privilege of photographing your wedding day. You started off my 2019 season with the BEST day I could have asked for. I just love you both!!! :)
