We had an amazing time shared with Alyssa and Alex at their Florentine Gardens Wedding. The couple started their day getting ready at Park Ridge Marriott. They both decided to forgo a First Look and wait ’til the ceremony to see each other for the first time on their big day. So, the anticipation was high once we arrived at Our Lady of Mt Carmel Church. And what an impression Alyssa made as she arrived in a white Rolls Royce! You’ve gotta check out the photos we got of the couple outside that baby!

After the ceremony, Alyssa and Alex’s reception took place at The Estate at Florentine Gardens. From the fountains and gazebos outside to the mahogany fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows indoors, this venue was absolutely breath-taking. We had an amazing time with Alyssa and Alex and we can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them!
