The word that most easily describes Cris and Kala's wedding day is: FUN. I mean, everything about the day was not only beautiful, but crazy fun.
This wedding day was perfectly planned and executed to maximize fun while still being elegant and meaningful.
I walked into Kala's suite to hear her Dad playing guitar for them while they got dressed. It felt inviting and even relaxed. While in a similar suite downstairs Lori captured Cris, happiness and last minute competition prep (more on that later).
The ceremony at the Downtown United Presbyterian Church (in downtown Rochester) was full of love. Having been together for 11 years, this had been wished for and anticipated for years. Their day had finally arrived, and it was perfect.
It was so perfect they even had time to stop for pizza. Yes pizza! Not many brides make the time to eat on their wedding day. These two not only made sure they did, the took a portrait stop out of the timeline to make sure the could. Pizza Stop on State Street was ready to deliver a hot pie to the whole bridal party. I mean come on, how could this day get any better?
Their portrait location at the U of R fit them perfectly. As U of R grads themselves, it was home to them for years. I believe that as as they move forward towards bigger things in the DC area this city will always have a special place in their hearts.
The reception was held at the Rochester Museum and Science Center. Perfect for their fun and playful sides, while showing off their city to guests that had come from around the world to watch them marry. The night was like any other until...
The Bridal Party Lip-Sync Competition! And WOW - they'd choreographed routines, and rocked the party with some crazy dance moves! SO MUCH FUN!
We've never witnessed so much real love and fun blend together so perfectly on a wedding day. This must be why Kala and Cris are a perfect fit for each other.
Ladies, thank you so much for sharing your lives, stories and this perfect day with us. It was a true honor to capture and celebrate with you. We wish you a lifetime of celebrations, each and every day.
