Terell + Malinda | Married | A Classy Gold + Blush City Wedding at The Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee, WI.

September 4, 2015

Oh my goodness are you in for a treat today with this post!! A drop-dead gorgeous wedding at the Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee, complete with custom floor-length bridesmaids gowns from RenzRagz in San Diego, breathtaking hair + makeup by Stylehype, + venues that will simply knock your socks off!! (Okay, that’s at least how I feel about this one!! Hehe) : ) Terell + Malinda’s day was something straight out of a magazine – and to think they planned it all while living nearly a thousand miles away in Brooklyn, New York! Speaks volumes of Malinda’s ability to plan, organize, + execute! This girl is a rockstar.

Terell + Malinda are an extraordinary, extraordinary couple. Both recently graduated from Law School + are now practicing on the east coast. What an accomplishment for the both of them, one that required a LOT of hard work + determination. But, they did it!! All in time to get married + start a new life together : ) They are going to do amazing things through their influential platforms + I have no doubt they will change the world for the better a little at a time through the lives they encounter.

You see, Terell + Malinda are two of the most humble, kind-hearted, + honest people you will ever meet. It’s just something about them – they drawn you in with their gentleness, poise, + a little bit of mysteriousness! You just want to know them more; you want to sit down + talk with them + hear what they have to say … their stories + experiences. I truly wish they lived closer so we could make this happen, but I’ll just have to be thankful for the time we did have together : )

Terell, you did something to my heart when I experienced you love Malinda. I want you to know that. The way you look at her is truly moving + beautiful beyond words. I hope you always look at her like that : ) Because not only will she feel the love, but others will be changed by it too : ) We are so, SO incredibly happy for the both of you + cannot wait for you to begin this new chapter of your lives together!! You are absolutely meant to be + we wish you decades of unchanging love, deepening respect, + joy beyond measure! To the Simpsons!! : )

Since Malinda’s dress was simple in + of itself, she wanted to add lots of bling to glam things up!

Time to see her groom (in one of the most beautiful settings EVER)!!

Is that a model? Posing for a bridal magazine?! ; ) 

We then headed to downtown Milwaukee for bridal party + more bride + groom portraits!! 

SERIOUSLY radiant!!! Such beautiful bridesmaids!!!! 

Okay, okay … the fellas aren’t so bad either ; ) !!!!

Terell + Malinda wanted some shots at the Milwaukee Art Museum – can you see why!?! Just stunning!!!

Oh my GOSH, Malinda!!! 

They all just look SO good together!!

The bridesmaids were telling me about this Beyoncé bridesmaid shot that we HAD to do. I had no idea what they were talking about, but they set themselves up + we got ourselves THIS shot!! I am SO in love!! You girls ROCK!! 

Back to the Pfister Hotel to get MARRIED!!

The most GORGEOUS reception space!!

Ahhhhhhhhh!! No words!!

We snuck out for one more round of portraits + boy was it worth it!!! 

!!!!!!!!!!!!! This was ALL Caleb!! I LOVE it!!!
