We were recently honored with the task of photographing Tiffany and Jonathan’s wedding at The Addison in Boca Raton, where Jonathan had a huge wedding day surprise for his bride to be.
We highly recomened the Addison as a wedding venue. To see the spotlight blog we did about the Addison click here
Setting up the surprise
Tiffany and John did the getting ready part of their big day at the Royal Blues on Deerfield Beach. Jon told us about a huge wedding day surprise he set up for Tiffany and we were all set to play along. We did their first look at The Royal Blues and got some of the bridal party shots out of the way. (Click HERE to see what we think about “first looks”) They then took the trolley over to The Addison.
Due to the surprise Jon had for Tiffany, we had to tell her that the bridal suite had a hole in the roof and was leaking water. Because Tiffany and Jon did a “first look”, we did some formal and family pictures in front of the arches. Tiffany was then rushed to the groom suite, which took the place of the normal bridal suite due to the surprise that was awaiting her. All of the staff at The Addison were in on the surprise as well. They seamlessly helped escort Tiffany around the buildings so she wouldn’t see what was on the balcony of the bridal suite.
The Ceremony, The Surprise
The ceremony was different for us. We typically shoot at The Addison while it is light outside. Tiffany and Jon’s ceremony didn’t start until after 6 p.m. Fortunately, there were a couple spotlights that we had turned toward the altar and the lighting came out amazing. The guys came out and took their places. The doors opened and all bridesmaids were on their way down the aisle. Now here comes the good part. Sitting in the crowd was Micah Christian. Micah is one quarter of, and the vocals in, Tiffany’s favorite group, Sons of Serendip. As the door swung open for Tiffany to walk down the aisle, she saw her favorite singer sitting at her wedding, singing to her, the song she chose to walk down the aisle to. You can see her reaction in the images. She literally jumped up and down in excitement.
Who is Sons of Serendip?
Like we wrote in the previous paragraph, Jon surprised Tiffany by hiring Sons of Serendip to come all the way from Massachusetts to come to sing at their wedding. Tiffany first fell in love with the group when they were on Americas Got Talent Season 9. They are comprised of 4 members. Micah, Kendall, Mason, and Cordaro. They met in grad school at Boston University. Sons of Serendip received 4th place on America’s Got Talent.
The reception was only our second outside reception outside at The Addison. The decor was brilliant like always at The Addison. Tiffany and Jon had a sparkler entrance while Micah and the other guys performed from the balcony of the bridal suite. Listening to Micah sing and Kendall, Mason, and Cordaro play their instruments while Tiffany and John danced was magical. Sons of Serendip played throughout the first dances and a few songs during dinner. Jon will definitely get the most memorable wedding day surprise for a long time to come.
