Jim+Tia, Lakeside Inn, Mount Dora FL, Wedding Photography
September 4, 2016
On her wedding day, when Tia said, “I don’t think I chose Jim. It was like we were just chosen…for each other”, I got goosebumps all over. Isn’t that the truth of every great love story? Without each other, we wander through life only half of ourselves. Jim and Tia are exceptional people and they truly complete one another. When Tia met Jim, she was in the midst of training for another big race. She didn’t think she had time to get into a relationship. Every part of life was focused on her goal. But…you can’t stop love. When it happens, you can’t help but fall head first. While traveling overseas to visit family, she couldn’t get Jim out of her head. And, that’s when she knew…she simply couldn’t live without him.
It felt like we stepped back in time at Jim and Tia’s wedding at Florida’s most historic hotel, the Lakeside Inn in Mount Dora, FL. The couple and their guests dressed for the event’s Great Gatsby’s theme. We loved all the little details. As breathtaking as Tia was, the love between them both shined even brighter!
Their reception music was done by the talented Chris Thomas Band, and I don’t think we have ever had so much fun photographing during a reception, because EVERYONE was ON THEIR FEET! What a blast! Congratulations Jim and Tia!

We noticed The Mullikin Studio out of all the other photographers at a bridal expo, because their photos were real. They showed a glimpse of the true emotion in every picture. Plus, Jenilee and Jeff were so fun and easy to talk to, like old friends catching up. From the engagement photo session, through planning and then during our wedding, Jeff and Jenilee were the consummate professional team. Guiding us, making us feel comfortable and bringing out our best to capture the exact feel that we were looking for from our wedding. We loved the process and the end result of the photos and video, and feel confident that discerning future brides and grooms will feel the same. – Jim and Tia
