It was already about 2 years since they had gotten married. Malaika and Kelvin decided on a low-key wedding ceremony a couple of years ago and now, they were getting ready for a large celebration with all of their friends and family. Their marriage vows reaffirmed and a beautiful reception to close out their special day. Definitely special. How many couples do you know get to go through such a poignant moment twice in their lives in as many years?
I’m fortunate to have known Malaika for a significant portion of my life. In fact, she texted me the other day saying she’d come across one of her high school yearbooks that I had decided to get a little, umm… creative with in the signing process. Yes. I was that girl in high school. The I’m-going-to-see-how-many-pages-I-can-write-across-while-signing-your-yearbook-at-the-end-of-the-year kind of girl. I’m seeing her later this week so I’ll get evidence for y’all.
Malaika and Kelvin, thank you for allowing me to document such a special moment in your lives. Your families, your friends, they were all so welcoming and wonderful. You are both such amazing individuals continuing on a journey with the love and support of amazing people surrounding you.
Love + hugs, Jenne.
Love that the day started out with laughter!
There’s so much to love about Malaika’s Mori Lee wedding gown… and when you pair it with those shoes? Hawwt!
The MPC500 cake was a surprise. Kelvin, the DJ/producer/artist that he is, loved it.
Oh, the sweet moments…
