Nina and James were married at Pristine Chapel on a Friday afternoon. They had requested that all of their guests wear white to the wedding. So for the first time ever, we did too. Even though the morning started off rainy, the day was perfect.
Nina started the day by getting ready in the Presidential Suite of the Mariott Gateway. We felt like kids in a candy store with all the possibilities of where we could photograph the details of her wedding in this beautiful suite.
Her awesome team of beauty professionals quickly got her all glammed up and ready for her big day.
Once Nina’s make-up and hair were finished, we head over to Pristine Chapel where James was getting ready and where Nina would pull her entire look together befor walking down the aisle.

Nina and James didn’t want a true first look, just a little tease.
All eyes on the Bride.
Sealing the deal with their first kiss as husband and wife.
Nina and James had their closest family and friends at their wedding and we were able to capture everyone in a picture at the altar. We love how this turned out and it was the first time we’ve photographed a wedding where all guests wore the same color.
Nina’s sorority sisters came from near and far.
Nina’s two great aunties were there to witness the day.

We love the first dance. It’s always full of emotion.
The sorority sister serenade is always fun.
Luckily, it only rained in the morning before the wedding and we had some clear skies to escape outside for a few portraits of the bride and groom.
One of Nina’s sorority sisters had a request to line the girls up and do several fun poses. Here they are blowing you a kiss.
