Orlando Bridal Crawl at Ceviche's and the Ballroom on Church Street

Pilster Photography was lucky enough to be invited to participate in the first ever Bridal Crawl in downtown Orlando. It was hosted by the Orange County History Center and included some of the most Outside the Box wedding venues in downtown Orlando.

They all put on some great displays of what they could do for a wedding and I'm just so excited that we were part of it.

The crawl gave brides the opportunity to explore some amazing and outside the box venues and vendors in downtown Orlando including Wall Street Plaza, City Arts Factory, Global Gallery, Citrus Club, Grand Bohemian Hotel, Orange County Regional History Center, Ceviche Tapas Bar and Restaurant, Ballroom at Church Street, and the Embassy Suites Hotel.

We were lucky enough to be invited by Ceviche! If you haven't been there, you have to go check it out. These pictures only give you a glimpse into how cool of a place it is.

We also swung by to check out one of our favorite floral designers, Lee Forrest Design at The Ballroom at Church Street Station

Check out what this archway is made out of!

Destination Wedding Photojournalist, Clearwater, Florida - Part one staring Kim and Andrew

Kim and Andrew always have had the biggest smiles on their faces from the moment I met them at our e-session in November. I couldn't wait to shoot their wedding and it came quick. They are currently living in Rhode Island and planned it all from afar, but Kim used to live in Clearwater. They did a great job!

A crossword about Kim and Andrew

I tell all of my clients that my packages are unlimited. This means that I will be there from the moment they wake up, until they leave the wedding. If your bridesmaids make you breakfast, I want to be there. The muffins were delicious!

The Spa at Salon West in Largo Florida was so light and airy. I loved the atmosphere and all of the mirrors!

Sometimes when you are planning a wedding you forget the little things, like a gift for your soon to be husband. We ran into the local CVS to find something for him. Some of these cards could bring tears to your eyes or laughter to your face.

Chocolate chips were left over from baking the night before. They seemed like a cool opportunity for the rings.

This dress was actually Kim's matron of honor's. It's from David's Bridal and all I have to say is that I totally understand why she would want to wear it again. It's gorgeous.

It takes a team to get this on!

Jewelery on.

A first look is always fun and great for a couple that wants more portraits from the day.

Getting ready for the portraits.

We started out with portraits at the botanical gardens of the Gulf Coast Museum of Art at the Pinewood Cultural Park, in Largo.

and more portraits....

With a wedding in her near future, Kim still seemed to be pretty steady with the putter.

Matching socks are always fun!

This is such a great necklace.

The blue door on the church just jumped out at me.

Did I mention the necklace!

This church had some great light.

Did I mention what a gorgeous dress this was?

Congratulations you two! Now it's onto the party! Check back on for the second half soon.
