5th Wedding Anniversary Shoot at the Hilton Orlando + An Announcement

Kunbi O / Monday September 4, 2017

Happy new week ladies and gentlemen. It’s been quite an eventful week here at Aisle Perfect as I shared my very emotional struggle with infertility (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). It also happens to be my husband and I’s fifth wedding anniversary. Yes, five years. In celebration of this milestone in our lives, we collaborated with a team of truly amazing wedding professionals for an anniversary shoot with a very special announcement (spoiler alert: read this first).

I honestly can’t believe how this shoot came about. A couple of months ago, I contacted my friend Kristen (A Girl and Her Glitter) who planned our wedding five years ago to let her know that we would be coming into town and would love to take some pictures ahead of our anniversary. I told her the idea I had and she graciously agreed to put it together for me. What we got however, was beyond our wildest dreams. Kristen reached out to a kick-ass group of wedding pros and they all came together to make magic for us.

Shot at our originial wedding venue –Hilton Orlando, this garden shoot features a few of my favorite elements like a gorgeous hanging chandelier by Signature Chandeliers, lush flowers by Raining Roses Productions (who did my wedding florals), pretty perfect rentals by Dishie Rentals and A Chair Affair and the yummiest cake I have ever had by Nicole of Florida Sweets Co. Everything was captured perfectly by the amazing Kristen Weaver.

If you read our infertility story, you know that our journey to parenthood is quite simply miraculous. We were so excited to share our testimony with the world and thanks to these generous wedding pros, this shoot has helped us do that. We can’t wait to see the complete manifestation of His promise in our lives. I am a testament of the perfection of God’s timing and grace.

I have saved the best for last with this beautiful video gifted to us by Lemus Cinema. They heard about our journey and created this keepsake video that I’ll forever cherish (full disclosure: I cried at one point lol). Thank you so much to all the amazing vendors who put this shoot together out of the goodness of their hearts. We are SO grateful! There are good people in this world guys!
