Southern Destination Wedding in Central Florida...

4Eyes just shot the destination wedding of Susan & Matt, an American bride & British groom,  who married at the ultra-exclusive Isleworth Coutry Club, in Central Florida.  
The bride got ready at the spectacular Portofino Hotel ( modeled after the Italian village, right down to a re-constructed copy of the buildings and harbor and  complete with italian speaking staff !) and then did finishing touches in a room overlooking the golf course.
 The groom drank tea and fixed his tie under a giant British Union Jack !
The wedding itself took over the entire Isleworth Country Club ( where Tiger Woods is a 
member !) and the enite affair was designed and planned by the amazing New York-based wedding planning team of JoAnne & Frank from Elegant Occasions.
We got some great portraits of the couple around the grounds, which were peppered with original sculptures by the likes of  Henry Moore & Jeff Coons. We also took them down to the lake, which had great light and the feel of the Deep South, with Spanish Moss covered trees.
The wedding was outdoors, in temperatures pushing 100 degrees, so everyone dove for the cool of the indoors for group shots around the Moroccan fountain,  in the centre of the club. Rupert could shoot from above while Kellie shot from the front. Came out very well.
The reception was held in the Clubs' Great Hall, a beautifully lit space, with banquet style tables. After speeches and a lavish buffet the dancing took over.... 
Celebrity guest Joey Fatone from N'Sync ( a close high school buddy of the Brides') was talked into performing a few songs with the band....... and the bride even got up and did a duet with him, singing Greeces' Summer Lovin' to roars of approval from the guests !!
