Hector + Richard | Winter Park Wedding Sneak Peak!

May 17, 2016

When Hector + Richard met each other in Stockholm, they both knew instantly that they had found their one! Hector is one of the most vibrant, dynamic people I have ever met- he is not only an accomplished Ironman athlete (he’s raced at Kona!) he tirelessly pours his energy into helping train other athletes through TriPeak Athlete and the Central Florida Tri Club. He also coaches paraolympic triathletes, and has one of the biggest hearts for helping others seek their passion. While training with him, Hector was one of the people in my life encouraging me to branch out and start my own photography business, and it meant a lot to me to have the support of someone I could see so clearly living & working his true calling in life as a coach and mentor. 

I was incredibly excited when I heard from Hector last year, and to hear that he had finally met his match! When I finally got to meet Richard after his big move from Amsterdam to Orlando I could see how incredibly heartfelt and genuine these two are together. After a very emotional first look togetherafter getting ready at the beautiful Winter Park villa of Hector’s friend Medi, they headed downtown with their groomsmen & groomsmaids! Hector & Richard were married in a flurry of tulips by Lee James Florals, pastel suits, incredibly toned biceps, bubbles and too many smiles to count at the Winter Park Farmer’s Market before an adoring crowd of their friends (some of whom traveled all the way from the Netherlands!),
