I must admit that I was slightly nervous heading into Jaime and Michael's wedding. I usually prefer to meet with my wedding couples at least twice and have an engagement session before their wedding day. However, Jaime and Michael were traveling up from Florida to get married among their friends and family in Valparaiso, Indiana, so our correspondence had been completely through email.
As soon as I met the couple though, all of my nerves were eased. These two are so easygoing, sweet and fun. This didn't surprise me, of course, once I learned of their professions. Both Jaime and Michael work at Disney World where happiness and a big smile are a part of your uniform. When photographing Jaime's bridal portraits I asked her to try out a serious look for a shot, and she immediately cracked a smile and started laughing. "I can't do serious. I work at Disney. I can't help but smile," she stated.
It was only natural then that Jaime and Michael planned a gorgeous Disney theme with the help of their venue coordinator at Aberdeen Manor. I was thoroughly impressed by the magical decor and professional staff at Aberdeen. The couple's theme was expertly carried through the decor, presentation and even the dinner service and music. Everything, including the couple, was flawless for Jaime and Michael's wedding, and it was such a privilege to photograph their best day yet.
