It feels so good to finally say it, what a WEDDING! When we first met Jesus and Sarah, they told us they wanted to surprise all of their friends and family and throw a surprise wedding! We didn’t believe them at first, but they even surprised us with how seamless and beautiful the whole day turned out! They know how to throw a party and we absolutely loved capturing every detail of it!
Since this was a surprise, our schedule was a little different than the typical weddings we capture. Guests were set to arrive at East End Market at 6:00PM for an “engagement party” because Jesus and Sarah were set to “elope overseas later this year”! Therefore, our sneaky couple had to get dressed in their wedding attire, pose for portraits, and change back into their engagement party attire before any of their guests were to arrive! They were super nervous because even their parents didn’t know about the surprise about to unfold!
Once the “engagement party” was in full swing Jesus and Sarah made an announcement to all the guests thanking them for coming and that they have lied to them the whole time. They revealed the surprise and called up their closest friends to become “surprise-maids” and groomsmen! Everyone couldn’t have been more shocked! Soon after, all the guests then went upstairs where a beautiful reception space was decorated by Porch Therapy and OverEasy Events! The guests watched a short video made by the happy couple explaining everything while the freshly appointed wedding party were greeted with their own personal wedding videos and gifts provided by the soon-to-be bride and groom!
Before we knew it, Sarah was escorted down the aisle by her father through a crowd of her closest friends! Still completely shocked and overjoyed, everyone was on their phones capturing a moment they never thought they would get to witness! Reverend Roxanne from Christ Church Unity presided over the beautiful ceremony and gave her blessing over the newly married couple. As the sun was setting, we took the family and the wedding party out for some portraits around East End Market! We didn’t stay outside for long though because everyone was ready to feast on the delicious dinner provided by Cuisiniers Catered Cuisine and Events and dance the night away with DJ Danny from DKNtertainment!
In true Jesus and Sarah fashion, they left the party on skateboards and headed straight to Redlight Redlight, the bar right down the street for their afterparty! We couldn’t have asked for a better couple and we wish Jesus and Sarah the absolute best in the future!
