The Winter Park Farmer’s Market is one of our favorite Orlando wedding venues, so we were thrilled to see the beautiful ceremony between Courtney and Michael. 

As you can tell from the pictures below, this couple brought romantic touches of glamour and love to their big day and we were honored to share it. (I mean, look at the options on that dessert table!)

We asked Courtney and Michael to share some of their favorite moments from their special day.

Was there a memory from your wedding that sticks out more than others? Maybe romantic, maybe fun dance floor related? 

Our crowd, probably. There were so many people and every single one of them made us feel so loved. It truly made for a magical day! 

As far as a physical part of the wedding reception, I would say our sweets table. It had such a romantic yet vintage feel to it and the desserts were so pretty. It was definitely the highlight of our reception. We got a lot of compliments about it!

What is one piece of advice that you would give couples planning their wedding?

Enjoy it as much as you can and take all the chaos in.

It’s funny because in high school I was a cheerleader, so I was used to being in front of large crowds. But at our wedding, my nerves were so shot because there were so many people staring at us, some of whom I knew, some that I didn’t, and some I hadn’t seen in years. I feel like during some of the dances and other certain moments (like the cake-cutting, etc.), I wasn’t really enjoying or taking in what was happening because I just wanted it to be over and for people to quit starting at me. Haha!

Looking back, I wish I would have just taken in how handsome my husband looked, and just that it was all finally happening, instead of caring so much about what else was going on around me or who was staring at us.

If you could change one thing about your wedding, what would it be?

First, I just want to say that our wedding was perfect!! Our vendors, including Our DJ Rocks, made our wedding so much fun and kept the timeline in order.

With that being said, the only thing I would’ve changed would be moving the bar inside. We left it out on the porch, after the cocktail hour so we had more indoor room, but I found that that caused a lot of people to stand outside and drink, which was away from the DJ inside. This, also, caused a lot of people to miss moments like the cake-cutting, garter toss, etc. because they were outside waiting for drinks.

Why did you choose Our DJ Rocks for your wedding entertainment?

Originally, it was just from the amazing reviews they had, but then I spoke with Kristin and I knew that they were just an amazing team and I had to have them DJ our wedding. Once I met Gaby, who was our DJ and who has the most fun personality, I knew for sure then that we had picked the perfect vendor for our DJ!!
