Busy Summer Weddings

Busy Summer Weddings have kept me from blogging as often as I would like to but truth is I would rather be creating art with the camera than sitting at a computer.

Congratulations to Shawn and Micaela who married today in The Secret Garden. The ceremony was performed by Rev. Gary as are most of the ceremonies at The Secret Garden and the official photos taken by Marti will be ready for the client within the next 2 days as promised. Elopement weddings are on the rise in general but certainly in the Orlando Florida area.

Old Idea New Twist Beatles

Here is an Old Idea New Twist – Beatles using the cover art concept of The Beatles Abbey Road album. We switched the locations of the four individuals and planned for a bride and groom with the two best men on this Orlando, FL downtown street. A very special thank you to the City of Orlando police department for maintaining traffic control for us to prevent me from being run down while taking this photographic image. I tried my best to wait for a VW bug to arrive but that was not possible as the wedding couple did have a reception to get to.Old Idea New Twist Beatles

Elopement Wedding Orlando Florida

Elopement Wedding Orlando Florida

It’s time for new beginnings with weddings and proposals. Introducing our Vegas Style Elopement Wedding Orlando Florida package. So many weddings take place in Las Vegas since it is a destination wedding location with all of the hotels and attractions. Orlando, Florida is also a destination wedding location for the same reason. We have theme parks, beaches, museums, performing arts, theaters and beautiful shopping districts. Central Florida is a great place to plan a wedding and vacation at the same time. Couples come from all over the globe and the weather is always beautiful year round. We invite you to look through our site and give us a call with any questions.

Elopement Wedding Orlando Florida

We have had a lot of brides and grooms choose to get married here in Orlando while on vacation and we are just minutes from The Disney area hotels and other theme parks. If you are considering eloping and just going to a local courthouse to make your nuptials official, why not have your ceremony at The Secret Garden in Orlando also known as our outdoor private studio and have the officiant, photography and the high res digital files included with full printing rights granted to you. Call us today to assist you in obtaining the marriage license and making your dream wedding plans come true.

You can see lots of pictures from events here at The Secret Garden by clicking on the gallery tab in the menu at the top of our page and you can refer to our other packages on our pricing page by clicking on the pricing tab.

We look forward to helping you. Give us a call today.

Orlando Wedding Coordinators

Orlando Wedding Coordinators

Are you too busy to plan the most important day of your life?

Contracting Orlando wedding coordinators is an appealing concept to find all of the vendors for the big day however finding your own vendors only requires a few phone calls to get a feel for a vendors personality. Questions asked one at a time are very time consuming for a busy vendor and they will almost always prefer talking to a prospective client by phone the first time so that more questions from each party can be addressed. Professional vendors work together often and the day flows smoothly simply because it is what they do and it can actually save you lots of money while having the vendors of your dreams. Out of state couples would have a much easier time on the other hand.

Orlando wedding coordinators

Simply ask the vendor you’re considering if they have worked with X, Y or Z and if they are able to refer someone. Most often they will give you names because they like to refer people who are good that understand team playing. After all, that is what makes working events fun.

Often times Orlando wedding coordinators are working from a much smaller circle of vendors and their bias doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be getting the cream of the crop.

You just may find the best vendors on your own and they have more than likely worked with each other on more than one occasion.

When you search on your own, you are using your instincts and you will have full control over how your day will flow.

If you tag yourself as one that is too busy to plan your own wedding, consider the fact that finding the time after the wedding to design your photo album would be equally as challenging. When we ask past clients that went with a master disc only package if they made an album, we often get the answer “No, I haven’t found the time yet”. It’s not unusual to hear that even a year or two after the wedding and sometimes there is a new baby in the family by then. When adding an album into your package, Abba Photography discounts the hourly rate and in essence is partially sharing in the cost of your album. A sweet deal for you!

We shoot Retro and Vintage wedding photography in addition to the other styles listed on our website.

One definition of Retro is: a culturally aged style, trend, mode, or fashion, from the overall post-modern past, that has since that time become functionally or superficially the norm once again. The use of “retro” style iconography and imagery interjected into post-modern art, advertising, mass media, etc. It generally implies a vintage of at least fifteen or twenty years. For example, clothing from the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s. could be retro.

Another new trend

Another new trend is small intimate weddings with gatherings of 60 or less people. It takes away the stress of planning a big event months away. No need to try to figure out who sits with who and who eats what and what dresses the bridesmaids like or don’t like not mention the expense. More and more brides and grooms are loving our intimate garden weddings known as The Marry Me Now package at The Secret Garden.

Recapping, when you choose pro vendors from any category whether it is a DJ, a photographer, a caterer, etc.. you are already working with some of the best Orlando wedding coordinators.

We can be reached in our office most days between 10:00 AM and 7:00 PM at 407-672-1121.
