Anjelica + Deron
Married at Acre Restaurant (Memphis)

Anjelica and Deron met on Tumblr, of all places. She and he followed one another, along with hundreds of other unknown people because of the content of their respective blogs. Eventually, he noticed that she was a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, the sister organization to his Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity. With this connection in his arsenal, he took a leap of faith and virtually introduced himself. Anjelica and Deron soon realized that they had an inconceivable number of things in common and continued to talk often, online, for months. Eventually, they met in person in NYC and again 5 months later in Nashville, Tennessee. Their chemistry was undeniable, and they both felt that they were meant to be together. After two years of long distance dating, they both moved to Memphis and three years later, decided to get married.

Their wedding took place at ACRE restaurant in Memphis, Tennessee in front of 75 guests. After, the guests dined on some of the best wedding food I have ever experienced, including BBQ in both a Memphis and North Carolina-style, which is Deron’s home state.

In her words, “what I’ll remember most about the day is how I felt walking down the aisle to meet Deron. In that moment, I felt God’s love and understood his divine plan for us. Everything in my life made sense.”

Another fave!! I only wish I would have grabbed a shot of Anjelica’s friends standing beside me screaming, “YAAASSS!!” and “SLAY!!” while we were shooting! Lol. AcreMemphisWeddingbyElleDanielle_0047 AcreMemphisWeddingbyElleDanielle_0046 AcreMemphisWeddingbyElleDanielle_0050 AcreMemphisWeddingbyElleDanielle_0048

I love this last image of the night that my second shooter, Darcy, captured. It’s of Anjelica’s dad, as she and Deron are getting into their car.. his love and pride are written all over his face.
