Shanequa and Cory have an energy about them that projects to all around them. Their wedding day was just what I expected and more. It was all about them and family, and that's a great thing. They reminded me once again why I love documenting the special day of couples.
Ryan Jensen attended as my guest shooter for the day, and it's always a blast having him around. When I met with Shanequa and Cory a week before their day, I asked them to help me play a joke on Ryan by calling him "Omar" A name he picked up from a previous couple of mine. That morning when I jokingly called Ryan "Omar" he laughed but said " don't do that" At that point I told myself to inform my bride and groom to forget the joke I wanted to play on him, but figured they'd forget about it anyway. Well as faith would have it, as I introduced Ryan to each of them that morning they both remembered and as I went from one room to the other they both proceeded to say "Hey Omar" before I could lift a finger to stop them. But it's cool,
Ryan being Ryan took it in stride. I'm sure he'll get me back one day. Since they both got prepared in the same hotel they asked to take some pictures together with out them seeing each other. Well, at least without Cory seeing his bride.
The Coral House is where the vows were exchanged and the celebration took place. And here during the ceremony Cory proved that true men, "real" men, do cry. The bond between them are off the scale.
