This elegant Lazaretto Ballroom wedding photographed by Sarah Rachel Photography is full of so much energy and happiness we just had to share it! I’ve been on a workout kick this year and now realize (like most have already done) if you make it your routine, it sticks! Thank goodness Chris and Shahida were working out at the same gym! “With this couple the gym takes on a whole new meaning.” Shahida and Chris met at the gym. She would plan her visits there around ”The guy working out with the baseball cap on” but she was too nervous to approach him. He eventually approached her they exchanged numbers and the rest is history. You know the saying, “When a couple works out together, they stay together.” Well they definitely embody that saying!
What caught our eyes the most about their wedding was all the love and energy that surrounded them. Both Shahida’s parents walked her down the aisle to Chris, who was literally beaming at the end. Shahida’s gown from Bridal manor fit her like a glove and you certainly could see in Chris’ expression during their first reveal that he was blown away. I don’t think his smile could get any bigger! We love most that Sarah saw all those captivating moments that really showed us the love and laughter that was bursting through their reception!
Their marriage proposal:
Chris proposed at midnight on June 6/7th. Shahida had been asking Chris to make a key for his apartment for a couple of weeks for her so he threw this key box at her and said “oh hey I made you a key” why she decided to open it then she doesn’t know. So she looked because in her mind it was just a key. She struggled to get it open. When she finally did she found torn tissue paper and wrapped inside was a beautiful ring. At this point, Chris was on his knee beside and popped the question.
