Caitlin + Phil's Alfond Inn Wedding
Updated: Apr 18
We don't know if there are enough words to describe how much we loved working with Caitlin and Phil. The two met online, on Match.com and they were instantly in love! Phil is from England and Caitlin grew up in Hawaii, and the two of them chose to combine their favorite American and UK traditions to create a beautiful, unique wedding experience for their guests. They held a winter wedding at The Alfond Inn and their cat Stella was in the wedding. Stay tuned to see how precious Stella looks on wedding day!
"Phill proposed on the Cliffs of Moher on a trip to Ireland. It was so beautiful! Five minutes after he proposed the skies opened up and we were hailed on as we tried to make it down the cliff ! As soon as we got to the car, the sun came back out and we got to go back outside to enjoy the view again. Phil rented a ring box cam so we have some really cool video of the proposal and the storm, and also of him nervously practicing how to use the camera before the proposal! The whole thing is such an awesome memory for us, even though the weather was crazy, I love a good story!” - Caitlin (Bride)
Phil and Caitlin held their engagement session with Kristen Weaver Photography in Winter Park along Park Avenue. If you haven't had the chance to visit Winter Park, it is such a beautiful city and a true nature lover's destination. The city is filled with manicured parks, unique architecture, and picture-perfect streets with flower gardens and brightly colored ivy-trimmed walls. You can feel the love and magic in their engagement portraits!
Caitlin and Phill dreamed of a classic wedding at one of the best boutique hotels in Orlando, The Alfond Inn.
The Alfond Inn in Winter Park is one of the most elegant and wonderful hotels in Florida and it was the perfect venue for the wedding they have been dreaming of. The hotel features a warm and intimate environment with gorgeous artwork throughout. It also features a beautiful central lawn large enough to hold a large audience for weddings and events. The central lawn offers a great ceremony backdrop of the property for weddings especially!
We honestly think Caitlin's every day demeanor is a constant state of happy, but on their wedding day her smile was simply contagious! Their overall design was simple, classic, elegance and we are obsessed with how every detail turned out!
Caitlin had her Bridesmaids dressed in soft purple dresses which pairing perfectly with the greenery and white floral bouquets.
Phil had his groomsmen in grey suits, soft purple ties and of course UK printed socks!!🇬🇧
Caitlin and Phil hired officiant Lon Tosi from Sensational Ceremonies. Lon worked closely with the bride and groom to create a custom wedding ceremony that had wedding guests in happy tears all the way through the entire ceremony!
Phil and Caitlyn had Lon read their special “love notes” that the two of them had written to one another. They placed their special messages into a “wine box” during the ceremony. On their first anniversary, they will open the box, read a love note and share a bottle of wine. They will read another love note every year and it is a great tradition that they will practice each year on their wedding anniversary.
