Laurel Wood Gardens | Dade City, Florida
March 26th was a beautiful spring day in Dade City, Florida, and a beautiful day for a wedding at Laurel Wood Gardens! I had the pleasure of heading down to Dade City to photograph the celebration for Brittany + Shane. You might remember Brittany + Shane from their day before the wedding engagement session that was featured earlier.
The day started at a local hotel with Brittany getting her hair and makeup done, but things then quickly moved over to the beautiful grounds of Laurel Wood Gardens. The happy couple decided to do a first look, and it was my pleasure to oblige.
Brittany + Shane’s first look was blanketed with warm sunlight and surrounded by the lush greenery of Laurel Wood Gardens. It was a wonderfully emotional portion of the day!
After the first look, Brittany + Shane took family photos and some more couples photos around the grounds of Laurel Wood Gardens. They then took some time to rest before the start of the ceremony.
For the ceremony, Brittany + Shane said their vows in the company of close family members and friends. Brittany’s grandfather conducted the ceremony, which added a great personal touch to things. The couple also included a unity ceremony with sand along with special locks to symbolize the new union.
Once the ceremony was complete, Brittany + Shane joined their family and friends for a relaxed reception. They also took some more time to get photos around Laurel Wood Gardens right around golden hour. These turned out beautifully and were a wonderful way to cap off a beautiful day.
I’d like to congratulate Brittany + Shane on their wedding, and I want to wish them nothing but the best in their lives together. I also want to thank them for having me come down to Dade City, Florida to photograph their lovely celebration!
I’d also like to thank the staff of Laurel Wood Gardens for the hospitality shown to everyone along with hosting such a gorgeous venue! If you’re looking for somewhere to have a wedding in Dade City or throughout Central Florida, go with Laurel Wood Gardens.
