Some may ask what is a surprise wedding? It started with the Bride an Entrepreneur, and the Groom who is a “Chef” called the studio to retain photography services. She specifically asked “Please don’t mention this wedding to anyone”, because it is going to be a surprise to our guests and family.
The guests were invited to a Black Tie event presented by Black Enterprise Magazine honoring the Bride, and the Food Network Channel honoring the Groom. When the guests arrived they were photographed on the Red Carpet with cocktails being served before the ceremony. I then documented the Brides Preparation in her eclectic hotel suite. After the cocktails were served the ushers escorted the guests to the main area for the intended ceremony.
Not until the guests saw the “Groom to Be” coming down the aisle, they finally realized that something other than an award ceremony was now happening. Shortly after when they saw the Bride they knew that it was a “Surprise Wedding”.
The wedding was later in Manhattan Brides Magazine and on the Wedding Channel “Say Yes To The Dress.”

LOVE WORKS “Marriage Works”
My name is Marjorie, John and I are approaching 10 years of marriage. I wanted to share, from my perspective what makes Love work.
My principal Foundation based upon:
Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:24 ESV) and (1 Corinthians 13:4-7 ESV Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Please respond to the blog Love Works!
Post your favorite Photos, or Comments that best exemplifies what makes Love Work.
