Leashia and Andy’s wedding at the Plaza Resort and Spa in Daytona Beach.
Leashia and Andy’s wedding at the Plaza Resort and Spa in Daytona Beach is a happily ever after ending. I met with Leashia and Andy about one month before their wedding and I was thrilled to get to know them. They both found their happily ever after and I had the honor to photograph it. They were married at the Church of the Epiphany in Port Orange. The chapel is a gorgeous cathedral setting. The lighting is OH MY GOSH so stunning there. After their ceremony they were sent off for a mock exit via some bubbles. I LOVE bubble exits! Their limo service by Elegant Limousines awaited them and I had the honor to take a short ride with them around the block. That was my first time riding in a limo and so was the grooms! We did some family photos inside the church and a couple fun photos of Leashia and Andy. Our next destination was The Plaza Resort and Spa for their reception. We arrived just in time for the most beautiful sunset. Now I love me some October sunsets. They make the most gorgeous cotton candy clouds.
That sunset was amazing.
Leashia told me that getting a photo on the beach was super important to them because their lives revolved around the water. They had no idea that even though it looked like the sun had already set, it was actually my favorite time of day to photograph. The magic hour. When the skies turn into different shades of purple, orange and pinks. We had just enough time to get a couple of romantic beach photos and then onto the dancing! The music was provided by Mr. DJ. He was on point all night, keeping the jams good and bodies moving. At one point I managed to get a cool shot of Leashia and Andy standing very still while everyone else around them danced. I absolutely adored the feelings that Andy and Leashia have for each other. Simply adorable. I want to wish them many more years of happiness and blessings!
