Isleworth Country Club in Windermere, Florida wedding of Summer and John

I teamed up with Val Becker (His Photos from the Day) to shoot a wedding on Saturday at the the Isleworth Country Club in Windermere. Megan Miller joined us to

John, the groom, told me that the first time Summer, his bride, and
him set eyes on Isleworth Country Club their minds were made up on
where they were having their wedding. I totally understand why! This
is where Tiger Woods lives and the Country Club is beautiful.

Surrounded by arches, In the center of the clubhouse, is an atrium
with a fountain. A few stories up is a skylight letting gorgeous
light in. All around the clubhouse are giant sculptures. The uneven
roof was lined with towers and Spanish tiles.

The architecture had a feel of a cross between medieval times, old
Florida and new Florida. The dining room where the reception was held
was no exception. The floors were a darker red wood and hanging from
the ceiling was chandelier that looked like it was made of candle

Wonderful Weddings, of Winter Park, helped John and Summer with the logistics of it, but they are a hands-on couple.

They both did such an amazing job. Summer decided on the colors (chocolate, modern green and ivory), the cake, found the vendors, and had a vision that she made happen down to the last detail. John jumped in to make awesome save-the-dates and pick some really cool cuff links (which were the spinners from wristwatches) for the guys. All of these characteristics and the ambiance of the candlelight matched the elegance and splendor of Isleworth. It was amazing what a great match this all was for the venue.

The theme of the day was "light." Sometimes it was gorgeous and sometimes it was outright DIFFICULT. Candle light was one of the main sources of light during the reception. This brought out a brilliant ambience, but on other hand made it difficult to light.

All of the right people came together to make this happen including
Flourish Floral Productions, Bake Me A Cake and the staff at
