It was an absolute pleasure being part of Krista and Rashawn’s Phipps Conservatory wedding. Their big day was all about family and friends and, of course, the wonderful connection that these two share.
We got to capture preparations with Krista both at the salon and hotel. We had a lot of fun with this, especially because Rashawn’s daughters were there to entertain us…or maybe we were entertaining them. We’re not sure, but one thing is definite – they LOVED getting their picture taken and were a pleasure to work with. Krista was a total knockout, and we loved that she wore her grandmother’s pearl necklace that both her mom and sister wore on their wedding days. What a beautiful family tradition!
After arriving at Phipps, we got some picture time with both Krista and Rashawn’s bridal parties and families before their ceremony. As the evening sun set behind Phipps, Krista and Rashawn exchanged vows in the perfect evening light. Krista and Rashawn also included a family unity ceremony with Rashawn’s daughters, gifting them both beautiful pearl necklaces.
We got to hangout with the bridal party for some more picture time on Phipps’ grounds before heading into the reception. After some touching toasts and dinner, Steve Spin from BPM DJ’s lit the dance floor up for Krista and Rashawn’s guests who were clearly ready to party!
Thank you Krista and Rashawn for letting us be part of your big day!!!
