River Landing Wedding | Christian + Calvin

On a beautiful, sunny day at River Landing, the enchanted wedding ceremony of Christian and Calvin took place. The venue filled with bright sunlight and crisp air made our clicks glow with mesmerizing effects. The wedding took place amidst nature with gorgeous flower settings and harmonizing decorative items, which took the venue’s decorum to the next level of dreaminess.

Calvin is an confident and romantic guy. He spotted Christian and pursued her on Facebook. After a while, he introduced himself, and the perfect chemistry and friendly compatibility between the two were something no one could deny. After being friends for years, they decided to take the relationship a step further and started dating. On December 12, 2015, Christian gave Calvin a big birthday surprise and took him to the Hornet’s Basketball game – every guy’s dream! Christian was exhausted from her sister’s baby shower last week and took a nap at the hotel before going to the game. Calvin woke her up just right before the event started, and thanked Christian for giving him the biggest surprise ever – Christian was still sleepy. Soon after thanking her, he got down on his knees and popped the question. Christian was shaken and thrilled, and instantly said yes. They later went to the game together and promised to spend the rest of their lives holding each other.

The magic of true love and friendship instantly consumed us, and watching the bride and groom getting ready for the biggest day of their lives was a sheer delight. Christian, dressed in a dreamy and traditional white wedding dress and Guess shoes was a reflecting sheer glory and elegance. Just after adding a set of sparkling diamond earrings and dash of Versace perfume, the bride was ready to start a new chapter in her life. Somewhere in another room, the groom was getting dressed with the feeling of both joy and anticipation for the big day. With his modish suit, classy watch, trendy shoes, and a big smile on his face, Calvin was ready to marry the love of his life. The moment we stepped into the light-filled venue to the time the couple exchanged their vows, our team was showered with many incredible and amazing opportunities of capturing emotions and love in its pure form. Clicking every fun and love-drenched moment of Christian and Calvin wedding was an honor our team will remember for a lifetime.

Please tell us about your experience with Donnell Perry Photography? We would not hesitate in recommending Donnell to anyone and would definitely choose him again!! He allowed us to provide our input as to what poses we did and the location of shots. He made my husband and I feel extremely comfortable with him and our wedding party had a great time shooting with him and his second shooter, Tierre. We received our wedding photos two weeks earlier than promised and we were wowed by the shots!! During the wedding reception he and his second shooter were very inconspicuous but in looking at the shots it seemed like he was everywhere he needed to be. We couldn’t be more pleased with quality, service, and product we received. 🙂

We love it when the bride and groom participate in the “the shoe game”. I think this one was a tie!
