Every now and then we get the privilege to photograph multiple weddings within the same family. This would be the case with Jamela and Cullen. Years ago we were honored to photograph Cullen's sister's wedding and have remained in touch with Karissa and Brandon ever since. We loved how beautifully decorated the wedding and reception were, fulfilling Cullen and Jamela's dream of a winter wonderland wedding. It was truly beautiful. But beyond the beauty of the decorations was the beauty of family, faith, and friends that permeated every part of their wonderful day. We see much through the lens, and what we saw this day was two grounded, fun loving, deeply giving families come together to support the beginning of a new family. Many moments through the day were marked with emotion including when Cullen gave his new daughter the keys to his heart during the ceremony.... such a tender moment!
Cullen and Jamela's day felt very much like a fairy tale wedding. One where the princess finds her prince charming. They chose to start their magical day with a magical "First Look" where they had an intimate, personal, moment together before they began their day of ceremony and fun. They did this at the Ellicott Square Building in downtown Buffalo. What a beautiful piece of architecture and what a sweet time for these two and it really had the essence of a grand castle which was befitting the royal couple. They then moved on to the Pentecostal Temple for the ceremony and then to the wonderfully decorated Main & Transit Firehall. The yummy food was catered by Nadine Brown, DJ Hassan kept the party rolling, and the whole thing was coordinated by Angela Mosley who did a most wonderful job keeping everything moving smoothly.
Please scroll through the images of their day and enjoy every moment as we did capturing it! When you get to the end be sure to leave some love for the couple in the comments. Cullen and Jamela, we are so happy for both of you! You have so much love and fun ahead of you. We wish you all the blessings your life can handle and we thank you for allowing us to capture your day.
This whole ensemble was just perfect and hung waiting for the princess to don them. Her ladies in waiting were looking darn good.... And Jamela was the most relaxed bride we had ever seen. Her bridesmaids kicked into action and were very attentive to her every need all day long.... great job ladies :) Like I said.... royalty...
This wedding party was such a great group to work with! Thanks guys for making our job easy :)
Love the relationship these two have with their parents. Cullen exchanged some "knowing" looks with his dad (who married them) as Jamela came down the isle, and you can tell that Jamela thinks the world of her dad in this one look. She loved her necklace the her Daddy gave her :) It's our wedding... and we're married... EVERYONE wanted a picture of the couple on their thrones :) Love Grandpa dances...
What a great day! Thank you again for trusting us to capture it!
