Tina and Leandro’s wedding was held in it’s entirety at the Royal Park Hotel in Rochester, Michigan. I have had the opportunity to photograph weddings at this beautiful hotel several times over the last few years. The hotel has so much to offer and each wedding that I’ve attended there has its own unique persona, customized to the tastes of the bride and groom. Tina and Leandro’s wedding was a day that was intimate, serene, joyful and fun – all wrapped up in one special day!
I met Tina in one of the suites for her getting ready photos before meeting Leandro in the hotel lobby, just in time for him to have his boutonniere put on and for the ceremony to begin shortly after. The ceremony was held in a conservatory, which is a lovely glass enclosure attached to the hotel. Because the ceremony took place during the late afternoon, it was naturally lit by sunlight. The guests were able to enjoy both Tina and Leandro’s beautiful ceremony, as well as take in the ornate gardens outside, surrounding the conservatory.
After the ceremony, we captured a few family photos outside by the nearby river running along side the Royal Park. While we were photographing the family portraits, the conservatory was quickly converted into a dining room, where the guests would spend the evening celebrating with Tina and Leandro.
