Malibou Lake and Mountain Club Wedding | Priscilla & Chris

Every single aspect of Chris & Priscilla’s day was beautiful, unique and so personal. When we arrived at the bridal suite, we were blown away with Pricilla’s gorgeous Enzoani gown and blue Christian Louboutin pumps! Swoon! It was right then we knew that the day would ROCK! And it did! Priscilla and Chris came up with the cutest theme for their wedding– pumps and sneakers. It was pretty much the perfect representation of their personalities. How so? Well, Chris is chill, funny, and the definition of cool, which is what a classic pair of sneakers is all about.  And pumps are a fitting representation of Priscilla because she is stylish, sophisticated, and an all around lovely lady. And like sneakers and pumps, Priscilla and Chris are the perfect complement to each other. Though at first the two may may seem like opposites, you quickly realize they each bring something to the table that the other one needs, and that’s why this relationship is going to last forever.  🙂

Michelle Black of Lehr and Black nailed the decor of the wedding to a T. The “Sneakers and Pumps” theme was fully integrated into every detail, and done with such class and elegance! Michelle also decorated the reception with lots and lots of prints from Chris & Priscilla’s engagement session!! When I saw my pictures enlarged and displayed throughout the reception room I got so excited!! It was a really cool feeling to see the images in print and displayed so nicely. Michelle even had some of the photos printed on candies, which were interspersed throughout the candy buffet! Too cute!!! Seriously, no detail was left untouched! And then, as if things weren’t amazing enough, Joeleen of A Sweet Design (who coincidentally also made my ultra-fab cupcake tower for my wedding) created two luscious cakes for Priscilla and Chris. One of the cakes being a replica of Pricilla’s Loubotins and Chris’ Nikes!! As always, Joeleen’s work is fabulous and delicious! We had a great time photographing and subsequently eating the cakes! hehe 😉

But it wasn’t just the decor and the theme that made this wedding so unique. Priscilla and Chris chose nontraditional music for the ceremony, but music that really represented who they are as individuals and as a couple. When Priscilla walked down the aisle to “I Say A Little Prayer” by Dionne Warwick I started to tear up. It was the absolute perfect score to a beautiful moment. Their ceremony was also very personal, and filled with such love. Both their moms presented the rings to them and gave a little speech/blessing. The love their parents have for them warmed my heart. You could tell it wasn’t just the happiest day for Priscilla and Chris, but it was also the happiest day for their parents! And isn’t that what weddings are about? The joining of two families into one great, big, uber-loving family?! Yes, I think so!

By the time the reception rolled around, Chris & Priscilla were ready to party!! They kicked the night off by dancing to “Run This Town” by Rhianna, Jay-z and Kanye! Awesome! And from that point on the fun kept coming. From the Best Man’s hilarious speech, to the bouquet toss which took three times to get right, to the dance floor jam packed with all of their friends and family getting down to hip-hop! It was awesome. And I felt so blessed to have had the opportunity to document it all. So thank you Priscilla and Chris, for letting me into your lives, for trusting me with your beautiful memories. I hope you love these photos and will always treasure them!

I also have to give a ginormous thank you to my homegirl Jenn King for second shooting with me, and also to all the vendors who came together to make this wedding day so beautiful and amazing to photograph. Michelle Black, Joeleen of A Sweet Design, Meredith at The Malibou Lake and Mountain Club and DJ Ricky Jordan— THANK YOU! You guys rock and I hope to work with you all again!

I will seriously shut up now and show you the pictures. Also, as always, be sure to check out the SLIDESHOW at the end of the post!!!
