Bridal Portraits | A Tradition

The history of bridal portraits actually began as a Southern tradition for brides and their families. So it’s only fitting to highlight some of our favorite Luxmore brides here at our gorgeous Southern estate! 

Having a private moment between the bride and their photographer is so important in building rapport and capturing that perfect photo. It’s easy to tell in a portrait if a bride feels comfortable, and there are plenty of unique areas throughout the estate for the ideal portrait session.

Getting ready is another great time to sneak a few one-on-one pics! The bridal suite at Luxmore Grande is one of the largest in Central Florida; so make sure to set aside some extra time for bridal portraits in this beautiful space.  

The Vendor Squad

Featured Inventory: Onyx,  Sapphire,  Harlow,  Heston

When working with couples, one of the best pieces of advice we can give them is to build a rock star vendor team. Wedding planning can be stressful and overwhelming, especially during times like these, COVID and all! And you want to ensure that you have a team of professional wedding vendors who have heaps of experience and your trust. When it comes to making tough decisions or make your special day everything you imagined you’ll have no doubt that they will make it happen. That means you can sit back, try to relax 😉 and enjoy your big day! 

Some quick tips: 

#1 See if your venue has a preferred vendor list, typically they do (I know we do, and we love everyone on it 😉)The venue has already vetted these vendors for you and know how amazing they are, all you must do is pick which one fits just right! 

#2 READ REVIEWS! Check out those reviews online, the knot, yelp, google, their website, even Instagram. Wherever you can read reviews from their past clients they will be honest and tell you all the details about how someone went the extra mile for them or maybe didn’t 😬 Either way those review may just say it all.

#3 Weddings can be expensive so, plan your budget accordingly. Rockstar vendors may not be the least expensive, and that’s not to say that the more budget friendly ones aren’t any good. But if their prices are a bit more, there’s probably a reason for it. Most likely they have earned those rates because they go above and beyond for their clients and many previous couples could tell you they were worth every penny. 

#4 Ask around to your friends.  Referrals are a big reason a lot of us wedding vendors get your business. If your friend had a great experience with someone while planning their wedding, more likely than not you’ll probably have a good one too! Afterall, we always stay on our A game for every client, knowing that we will be talked about, in a good light 😉
