After doing an engagement session with Angela and Jalen, I was so excited to see what they put together for their wedding day, and they did not disappoint!
My second shooter and I met them at a nearby hotel for prep, but pretty quickly we moved to Birchwood Banquets for first look and posed photos.
I loved their outfits - very classy and elegant without being stuffy.
The ceremony was held outside, and their vows were beautiful. Hardly a dry eye anywhere!
The reception was a blast! Everyone came ready to celebrate the new couple, and the mix of Ethiopian and American dance music kept things interesting all night.
The night ended with an Ethiopian tradition, where Angela and Jalen went along a line of family elders, giving thanks and receiving blessings. Easily the most emotional exit I've had the chance to photograph.
Congratulations, Angela and Jalen!
