Marriage is a union of love, friendship, and togetherness that is witnessed by the world. We were honored to be a part of Jylindia and Gee ceremony that was an illustration of real fondness and passion. At Double Tree by Hilton Hotel the ceremony was about to commence. Sitting with our cameras ready, we were taken aback by the beauty and perfection of the venue – we were going to take some great shots!
Families from both sides were busy getting ready for the big day, and we clicked some of the best and candid shots in those moments. Bride all dressed up in a classic white dress, Badgley Mischka shoes, and sparkling jewels took everyone by awe! Things were quite animated on the groom’s side as well. The groom looked handsome in his dapper three-piece with a white vest that perfectly complemented the bride’s look – they truly know how to make an outfit work.
The proposal story of Jylindia and Gee is romantic and alluring, just like their wedding. On a weekend getaway to Wilmington, North Carolina, things took a turn for the best. Sharing their common love for water and seafood, the couple decided to plan their weekend ahead of arrival. Jylindia is a seafood enthusiast and was excited to visit her favorite places, which Gee carefully noted to his memory. On the Valentine’s Day, an intimate dinner date at Bluewater Waterfront Grill was planned. The moment quickly came after the couple settled down on their table, and Jylindia shouted “Yes” with excitement and utter joy. The other guests applauded, and the journey of love and togetherness for this couple began!
At the venue, groom and his family are settling down at the venue. Filled with hues of purple and white shades, the setting looked no less than a fairytale chapter. The perfect candle lightings, lavish flower setting, and a spectacular cake grabbed everyone’s attention. After a beautiful ceremony of exchanging vows, the guests celebrated in the best way possible – by dancing! The reception was filled with joyful and happy guests who showered their blessings on the newly married couple.
Happy faces, true love, sheer happiness, and vibrant ambiance always makes for a great shoot. We wish Jylindia and Gee all the bliss, love, and joy in their happily married life.
