Kenisha & Jevaughn // Wedding Highlights [New Haven, CT]

August 30, 2016  •  7 Comments

I have known Kenisha since she was about 7 years old. We've been members of the same church forever. When she asked me to photograph her wedding, I felt greatly honored. And knowing Jevaughn (aka Jay), this wedding was going to be the wedding for the year :D

Kenisha & Jay got married on my son Jaden's first birthday. I guess I'll never forget their anniversary! Although I was sad to leave my son on his birthday, I was excited to be a part of this great event.

----------

The wedding ceremony took place at Promiseland Church of God in West Haven, CT. It was unlike any wedding ceremony I'd ever seen in person. There was a live band and lots of singing.

There was also a dance and a spoken word piece.

The Shoe Game is one of my favorite games to watch being played at a wedding. Sometimes the questions are hilarious, sometimes they're embarrassing. HAHA!
