Wyndham Grand Jupiter Wedding | Laura + Phillip

Wyndham Grand Jupiter at Harbourside Place Wedding Photography


Laura and Phil had a beautiful Wyndham Grand Jupiter wedding where we captured their getting ready photos, some portraits, and their reception.  In between, we headed to Jupiter First Church for their ceremony and bride & groom portraits.  Laura describes their wedding inspiration as “the sophistication and charm of springtime in Paris & the punctuated, modern lines of 1960’s Art Deco architecture in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Stark contrasts of black & white (to mirror the infamous black & white tiles of Copacabana & Ipanema) woven with accents of silver & blush.”

About the Couple: Phil & Laura have been together for 7 years and have found they are more in love with each passing year.  They absolutely love to travel and take time to do so whenever possible. They have a travel wish list a mile long but are particularly excited about going wine tasting in Burgundy & Champagne sometime soon.  They love cooking together (mostly Phil cooks and Laura watches and chooses the wine pairing!) and watching scary movies. They’ve watched pretty much every scary movie on Netflix already!  They also love meeting up with friends for drinks & dancing. Both are always working on improving their salsa skills.  They also have a deep appreciation and love for bossa nova & samba music. They usually play both while in the kitchen cooking (and taking breaks for a little dancing).

Their LOVE Story: Phil & Laura met while studying Portuguese in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Phil was in graduate school at Florida International University and Laura was finishing her undergraduate degree at the University of Central Florida, both were in Brazil on a study abroad & placed in the same classes at the Instituto Brasil-Estados Unidos (IBEU).  As IBEU students Phil & Laura were living with host families. One night Laura invited her classmates out to her host sister’s boyfriend’s concert in Santa Teresa. Phil & Laura danced together for the first time that night and the rest is history!  They spent the rest of the summer falling in love on the golden beaches of Leblon, Ipanema & Copacabana.
