Deer Creek Golf Club
Be prepared for a very long blog post because every single minute of Roxanna & Donovan’s wedding day at Deer Creek Golf Club was so beautiful, I could not narrow down the images to share here. They planned a wedding day that was so personal to them and their story, but it was also such a fun day. I started the day photographing Roxanna’s getting ready and I seriously could not handle her bridal details. She was beyond stunning even before she put on the wedding gown.
I just loved seeing the creative ways this couple incorporated their personalities and Jamaican culture into their wedding day. In this case, it was through the secondary stars of the show. Their son and daughter who were on point as flower girl and ring bearer.
When I arrived at Deer Creek Golf Club, my jaw dropped when I saw how stunning the venue was. The wedding hall had floor to ceiling windows overlooking the golf course and letting in drool worthy natural light. Each table had gorgeous fresh florals as well as personalized menus and name tags for each guest. Everything kept to the blue and floral theme.
The only drawback I have with this venue are the limitations when it comes to portraits. Most golf courses offer amazing photo op locations right on the green. This is the only one I’ve been to that doesn’t allow couples to go past the venue grounds. They’re completely limited to the gazebo of their ceremony, a small garden, and a pond nearby. Which granted is still pretty amazing considering how many wedding I’ve photographed this year with only a parking lot for portraits. But I could have a field day with free range at a venue like this.
This is a relatively new service I offer. It gives you the benefit of two photographers for your morning prep/portrait sessions. You get photo/video coverage of the ceremony and reception. And a photo booth is available for your guests once the dance floor opens. It a little bit of everything, but only requires 2 shooters throughout the day. I am a trained on photographer and videographer. This just allows me to transition between the two throughout the day. Video coverage of this event is at the bottom of the page. It includes a full runthrough of the wedding ceremony and the scheduled highlights of the evening wedding reception. All speeches and vows are uncut so you remember every word
