I’ve filmed many a wedding at the Gaylord Palms, but this was my first engagement film. Imari and Royce are great friends of mine. I met Royce by chance in a local filmmaking group where he promoted an upcoming vegan event he was hosting. He had me come out and film it for him, which is where I met his then girlfriend, Imari. I could tell this madly in love couple were destined to tie the knot on first meeting. They have so much in common, including a passion for numerology, specifically the number 17. Their joint vegan entertainment company is called Noor 17 and they chose November 17 as their wedding date.
We chose the Gaylord Palms as the location to film their interviews and the romantic nighttime shots. The Gaylord Palms has lush vegetation inside the spacious interior as well as a beautiful flowing fountain, which you hear in the background of this film. Located in a secluded area of Kissimmee, the complex is massive and practically a city of its own! We also got some gorgeous footage at the Casa Feliz in Winter Park. This is another one of my favorite venues in Orlando due to its historic look and intimate space. Its more rustic veneer provides a contrast to the luxurious look of a Gaylord Palms Wedding.
