Black and White Wedding at The Veranda at Thornton Park

It only makes sense for a power couple like Janelle and Jonathan to look to another power couple of the past for their wedding inspiration. The black and white wedding at The Veranda at Thornton Park was inspired by Priscilla and Elvis Presley’s wedding circa 1967. The modern update included orchid-lined tables, a pale blue accent color, and a gorgeous outdoor ceremony. The Hons captured each detail and every moment so that the couple can cherish their day for the rest of their lives, and maybe even inspire a wedding or two of their own!

The Couple:

Janelle and Jonathan

The Wedding:

The Veranda at Thornton Park, Orlando, Florida

The Inspiration:

I would say our wedding style was reminiscent of that of Priscilla and Elvis Presley. It was very poised and elegant. Stark whites and rich colors. I was lucky enough to get my dress directly from its designer, Angel Sanchez, in NYC with my best friend Jenny and Mother in tow. It was a vintage inspired look with a crumb catcher, like none I have ever seen before. Jonathan wore a tailored J.Crew shall collar tuxedo which is also very classic and bold. The decor was majestic. Its really the only way to describe it. We were even styled with a full moon that evening that cast a glow over the entire venue.

The Moments:

It would probably be the moment I walked into the ceremony space. It was a pivotal moment for me. I was there holding my father’s hand as I walked in and saw all the faces of everyone I love in one place, all the beautiful work my mother and her friends did to make the space perfect in a way only THEY could, the sound of my brother Danny playing and singing the song that would guide me down the isle, seeing Jonathan at the end of it knowing I was about to begin to enjoy one of the greatest moments of my life.

The Couple Recommends:

Hiring The Hons as our photographers was THE EASIEST and best thing we could have done. Fact. They just get it. They are extremely motivated and passionate about their work. Logically you look for photographers with skill, and let me tell you, SKILL they have, but when you sit down with them you really see how they genuinely care about NOT MISSING ANYTHING.

The day of the wedding, they were there, bright and early, not like before the ceremony early, like 9am early. HOURS before the ceremony. The day before they went to the venue and covered the grounds surrounding and inside the venue. Why? To prepare themselves, to get their lighting, to time themselves, to scout the area for photo opportunities. THAT is the kind of dedication you want.
