Classic & Elegant Winter Ceremony Wedding Details
Jonah and Kailyn’s wedding began at their parish, St. James Cathedral to host their large January wedding. St. James is a large cathedral located in Downtown Orlando. Upon walking in, guests are wow’d by the cathedral’s large timeless ceiling paintings and stained glass windows. While this space spoke for itself, winter white floral arrangements were chosen to dress the altar.
Kailyn walked down the aisle with her white bridal bouquet and wore a cathedral veil which paired perfectly with her modern wedding dress. Kailyn’s wedding dress was a perfect selection for a timeless winter wedding in Florida. Her plunge neckline paired with a fitted silhouette made for an effortless bridal style. Her groom, Jonah chose a classic black tux and bow tie for his attire. His style too was timeless and perfect for their white wedding.

They had so much love for each other and it showed through in every component of their wedding”– Taylor Bianco, Co-Owner & Lead Planner of Taylor Rae Events
