From Jeff & Amalie Orrange from Amalie Orrange Photography... Driving to Cross Creek Ranch from our home in Orlando felt like we are on our way to the middle of nowhere, and that got me thinking. What the middle of nowhere is for one is the center of life for another. When wedding days happen, no matter where they happen, that time, that place and those people who partake are in the center of the universe. To the couple getting married, even if the closest other person isn’t for miles, it wouldn’t matter. The only thing that would matter is the love and the laughter and the friendship that only a wedding day could bring.
I saw first hand the center of the Universe for Jamie and Josh on their wedding day. I saw the family gathered, the friends rejoicing, and the love that was being witnessed by all. I saw the nerves, the smiles and the dances. I saw old friends give speeches, I saw a mother dance with her son, and father dance with his little girl, I even saw a horse head photo-bomb the portraits. Yes, even though it felt like a long drive for me, it did not feel far away at all.
These two love each other, that is apparent as soon as you meet them and I hope it is as apparent in the images that we took. Their day was fun, laid back, and even had a bonfire for roasting marshmallows. The beautiful Cross Creek Ranch could not have fit these two any better. Yes, I have to say, this was right in the center of everything. Jamie and Josh, thank you for inviting us in and letting us share this amazing day we will never forget it.
Here’s to Jamie and Josh: May wherever you to are be home, and may home always be the center of the Universe.
