Man, I feel like I haven’t written one of these in FOREVER. I guess it’s because I haven’t! Weddings have been super slow because of the pandemic, but Livia and Gus kicked off my fall wedding season this weekend! The amazing duo tied the knot at the Green Room in Icon Park Orlando. This venue is attached to Tin Roof Orlando, a venue the couple frequently plays!
If you didn’t know, Livia and Gus are behind L&G Live, an acoustic cover band in Orlando. It’s actually how we became close! Livia and I first met doing theatre work a few years back. I also photographed some headshots for her in Winter Garden! Like most when the pandemic began in March of 2020, the pair needed to find a new source of income. So, they started pursuing what they loved most: playing music!
Their brand started taking off, and they added more amazing people to their team. I photographed their team a few times now, and I just adore Livia and Gus. Their chemistry and relationship really shine in their photos AND playing music together. They’ve now played all throughout Central Florida, and completed their Northeastern tour just before the wedding!
Speaking of this wedding, let’s get to it. Livia and Gus wanted to keep this wedding simple and have it reflect them, something I love. Plus, they are having a second wedding in Livia’s home state of New Jersey in a few weeks! This wedding in Icon Park Orlando at the Green Room really focused on their love and being themselves.
I had a few favorite parts from this wedding. The first was with Livia getting ready at Disney’s Riviera Resort! Livia wore a gorgeous sparkly gown and veil with a black belt and pearl-laced Converse. It mixed her styles so perfectly! As her mom, Stacy, helped her put her shoes on, they reminisced about Stacy helping her get ready for dance recitals. It was such a heartwarming moment! Then, Livia had a first look with her bridesmaids as they had never seen her dress before. The excitement on their faces was so amazing!
Another favorite part of Gus and Livia’s wedding was the ceremony itself. The couple really chose a venue that represented them as a laid-back and fun musical duo. They were able to exchange vows at a place that held meaning to them with their closest friends and family! Their officiant had also known Gus since he was a kid, and hearing the stories and connection between them was so special.
Livia and Gus, I cannot thank you enough for trusting Jack and I with your first wedding at the Green Room in Icon Park Orlando. Seeing you two blossom over the years and your success has been such an amazing experience. We are both so darn happy for you and can’t wait to see what comes next for you both. Until our next promo shoot together, enjoy your sneak peek from your wedding day!!
