Brandon and Bruce tied the knot at the stunning Timacuan Golf and Country Club in Lake Mary. Their wedding truly reflected their elegant style and love of bold colors. Garden green and true blue graced the chairs, tables, and wardrobe of the wedding party. Ryleigh, Brandon’s daughter, and of course now Bruce’s as well, was their maid of honor and walked down the aisle with them. Friends and family came to witness their magical day underneath the setting sun against the gorgeous golf course. During the ceremony, Bruce pulled Ryleigh up and asked for her permission to marry Brandon. He gave her a green diamond ring, promising to love and cherish her as much as he loves and cherishes her dad. It was truly the most memorable moment of the entire night. It took all I could from holding back tears to continue capturing their ceremony. Ryleigh was in complete awe and gave Bruce the biggest hug. The love in that one moment alone was so powerful that all of the guests were completely silent with tears in their eyes.
After the ceremony ended, I whisked the wedding party and immediate family away for formal shots on the golf course. The setting sun peaking through the large pine trees found on the Timacuan property was absolutely stunning. Halfway through formal shots, me, Bruce, Brandon, Ryleigh, and David the event manager for Timacuan drove off in golf carts in search of beautiful wooden bridges and lush foliage. Some of my favorite formal shots of the night were of Brandon and Bruce holding one another tightly with their heads against each other. The reception was incredibly lively. I have never seen guests start dancing immediately with so much pep in their step. Moms, aunts, brothers, and the entire family danced the night away. The night concluded with guests lighting a pathway of sparklers for the two to take off. Wishing these two, and Ryleigh makes three, absolute happiness and love.
