Deanna + Quincy

b.jpg

Meet The Enunwas. When Nigerian culture and Puerto Rican culture collide. Deanna, an army veteran and therapist by way of Columbia University and Quincy, a wide receiver for the New York Jets are the definition of power couple. As I reflect on Deanna and Quincy’s wedding day and the events that lead up to this point, I am reminded that relationships are the life blood of all things good; truly invaluable.

Case in point, I photographed this beautiful couple for the first time about 3 years ago. They were guests at an event for Deanna’s cousin Willie and Aikisha Colon. The images were for the most part, fly on the wall candids of a striking couple I didn’t know. We never formally met and unknowingly our paths crossed more than once thereafter. Years later, God’s plan and a collective of cherished relationships brought us together for this epic celebration of their love and future together. Deanna and Quincy are two of the most amazing people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. Beautiful yes; but also thoughtful, God-fearing, accomplished and kind. Needless to say their wedding day was a GOOD VIBES ONLY kind of day. Kisha Barner of K Barner Events SLAYED this wedding. Their guests looked NYC chic dressed in all black and the traditional Nigerian fashion was a feast for the eyes. Their vendor team showed up and SHOWED OUT. Rev. Roxy, also a veteran, officiated their heart warming wedding ceremony in uniform and MikeMusic had the dance floor jumping; literally jumping, people were air bound. I could go on and on but instead get in to this slideshow recap!
