Sarah & Henry – October 4, 2015 – Orlando Science Center
We should preface this vow renewal with a little background of the couple. Sarah & Henry actually tied the knot last year in an intimate courthouse ceremony. Being that he is in the military, they weren’t sure when they were going to be able to have a big celebration. Well, the opportunity presented itself sooner than they thought. This lovely couple was able to have their closest friends & family, and some pre-historic guests, witness their commitment to each other again.
The SunTrust Terrace was the perfect setting for their ceremony. It overlooks the lush greenery surrounding the Science Center, with a distant vista of Downtown Orlando in the background. With their 6pm ceremony time, the sun was close to setting, which added a romantic feeling to this already beautiful October day! We loved that Sarah & Henry had also chosen all instrumental Disney songs for their processional & recessional. The ceremony was performed by two of their best friends, who shared heartfelt stories of how they knew the couple.
After photos were taken, guests made their way into the ‘Our Planet’ Room for appetizers and drinks. The children in attendance were able to enjoy the amenities & learning games that the venue offers, while the adults mingled with loved ones. When the time came to enter the reception space, guests were wowed by what they saw. They were welcomed into ‘Dino Digs’ by a gigantic, prehistoric T-Rex, holding a sign in it’s mouth! They were literally about to dine with the dinosaurs that evening. The decor was simple, reflecting hues of maroon & gold, and the amber uplighting really warmed up the space. Our favorite detail was how creative Sarah & her bridesmaids got with the centerpieces. They made nebulas in a bottle for each table, and guests were able to take them home as a keepsake, too!
Sarah & Henry, thank you for letting us play a special part in your beautiful vow renewal. We were happy to see you enjoy your ‘wedding’ day with friends & family by your side, dancing the night away with the dinos! XO
