I was contacted by Kellee to photograph her wedding at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach on July 7th, 2020. She had contacted me mid May 2020 from Virginia where she currently lives. Kellee explained she was planning a small intimate wedding with her parents, brother and sister and her soon to be husband Wendwesen. Covid-19 has been a source of small intimate weddings since February when the pandemic began.
I arrived at the Hilton Fort Lauderdale Beach and met with Kellee and Wendwesen on the Penthouse floor. Kellee had an additional room where she would get ready with her mother.
I then proceeded to meet with Wendwesen and we began his groom photos and detail images. I then returned to Kellee where I did her images as well. The ceremony was scheduled to begin and I photographed the short but beautiful wedding ceremony and captured the first kiss from the hallway looking into the penthouse suite.
After the ceremony, Kellee and Wendwesen were excited to do their bridal portraits, so they could return to her family to change and head out to their planned lunch. We did some photographs in the penthouse suite and then went outside to the beach front. It was a hot and humid day.
The Hilton Ft. Lauderdale beach resort is one of my favorite wedding venues on Fort Lauderdale Beach to photograph weddings big and small.
