A few snaps from this past weekend in Orlando.  We managed to fit a lot of things in and had so much fun exploring.  

Friday we arrived and checked into our place, we ended up exchanging our time share which was super comfortable and quiet.  We were a little south, closer to Disney, so most of the things we did required a bit of drive time.  Although Orlando seems really spread out anyways!  We played tourist and walked around Downtown Disney our first night, dining at a lively cuban cafe for dinner.  Then we went to House of Blues where a Guns N' Roses tribute band was performing, it was definitely entertaining! Saturday was more a work day for me with the pop up shop at West Elm (photos to come).  After the event I had an evening engagement shoot at Kraft Azalea Park.  The park was beautiful, filled with huge Oak tress and hanging moss.  I was pleasantly surprised at the location, it was on a lake and the surrounding neighborhood had some serious houses.  We enjoyed driving through and looking at them.  That night we met my friend for dinner at Cask and Larder.  It seems to be a locals favorite.  The menu was super interesting with great cocktails.  I had an earl grey, sage vodka, and lemonade concoction, amazing!  Sunday was our free day so we got up early and head to Winter Park.  I've stayed on Park Ave before for work so I knew we would find a good brunch spot and other fun things to do.  After that, at the advice of my friend, we went to the East End Market which was awesome.  Lots of local makers and food in an indoor market, just super fun to see a community like that.  I of course couldn't resist going to the mall at mellenia since it's my favorite.  In exchange for Hunter shopping with me we went to Medieval Times that night.  I assumed it would be on the cheesier side but it was surprisingly really fun and the food was pretty good (they had a vegetarian option!).  All in all a great little weekend getaway!
