A Beautiful Lakeland Wedding With A Splash of Harry Potter and Nintendo


Lakeland, FL

Where to start! Kamalie and Jaren are truly some of the nicest people we have had the honor to work with. Their engagement session took place at the incredible gardens at Bok Tower (we’ve included a few photos below), and we instantly knew that their chemistry was out of this world. Jaren found the most awesome ring for Kamalie with Harry Potter symbols all around; a must-see for any Harry Potter lovers. Their wedding had a splash of HP-inspired decor as well as classic video game references in the candy table and other decor.

The getting-ready preparations took place at The Terrace Hotel in downtown Lakeland. We love that place because the lighting in those rooms is gorgeous and you can take a quick stroll around the venue for photos around downtown.

The wedding reception took place at Magnolia Building in Lakeland, which provided us with beautiful options to capture their bride & groom portraits; there are lush greens, gorgeous hedges, and the most amazing sunset at Lake Mirror. The reception was a blast filled with dancing and laughter. The surprise confetti guns were a nice touch that all the guests loved.

Finally, an epic sparkler exit to close the evening.
