We met in CIRQUE du SOLEIL | DIY Backyard Intimate Lake Wedding | Zane & Derrick’s Lakeside Ceremony | Winter Garden, FL

I absolutely love how many couples are choosing to do more intimate wedding ceremonies in their backyards! These micro weddings are casual, fun, and still have all of the hallmarks of a traditional wedding while still being able to add a more personal spin. For Zane and Derrick that meant tropical vibes and traditional Jewish elements during their wedding ceremony!

Zane and Derrick met while they were working for CIRQUE D’SOLEIL. AS ACROBATS. Isn’t that just the coolest?! I actually didn’t get to meet them in person until their wedding day because Derrick was out west working for Cirque and Zane was out of town for school to become a doctor. Seriously impressive! For their wedding they chose to hold the celebration in their Winter Garden home here in Florida which backs up to one of our many beautiful lakes. Perfect backdrop for a wedding!

WELCOME

My name is Jessica and I am the dreamer behind Jessica Lauren Photography! When I’m not behind the camera I love spending time with my dog hiking the beautiful Florida trails, out on my paddle board in our local springs, or getting some quality time with my husband while we explore local events. I have actual cravings for the ocean when it’s been too long since my last beach day. I roller skate – not in-line skate, I mean the old school quad skates! I have a deep love for all things J.R.R. Tolkien and my #1 wish is to travel to New Zealand one day!
