In a high school engineering class sat two young kids who barely knew each other’s last name. As years passed and friendships grew, so did their fondness for one another, and on January 6th, 2012 Richmond asked Paiten to be his girlfriend. Fast forward nine years later, he could not believe that after knowing someone as generous as Paiten for 10+ years they would become husband and wife in just a few short hours. As Paiten made her way gracefully down the aisle he could barely take his eyes off her. Not only was it hot outside on that late June afternoon, but sparks were flying inside from the moment Paiten and Richmond said “I Do”.
Richmond and his groomsmen looked dapper in their black tuxedos, while Paiten and her bridesmaids looked flawless in their beautiful long black dresses. The reception tables were filled with stunning gold frame centerpieces that were handmade by Richmond which elevated the elegant florals. Paiten and Richmond had always shared a love for an old school polaroid and wanted to spread that love with their guests as they invited them to add polaroids to their guestbook.
While meeting with Paiten and Richmond during planning, they stressed to us the importance of having a huge party for their reception, and that’s definitely what they got. Their guests showed up and showed out! From shagging to dropping it low, they never missed a beat. In the midst of the fun, we brought out the Cyro Cannon and Paiten blew her guests away (literally).
Looking back on this divine June day we are reminded of simpler times and that love is truly all you need. Paiten and Richmond, it was an honor to be part of your beautiful day. From the ceremony to the sparkler exit, it was nothing less than magnificent. We wish you many years of love and happiness!
