Happy Wednesday Guys...I'm excited to share the beautiful wedding of Patrice & Elijah....they are such a beautiful couple and I love the story of how they met!  Elijah is a neo-soul singer-songwriter and his group needed a female backup singer.  Elijah advertised the position on Craigslist and Patrice sent in a demo tape and she was hired on the spot and the rest, as they say, is history.  Patrice has a beautiful voice...check out her site here....I had the opportunity to chat with her and she is the sweetest....I ADORE her!!  Capturing all the magic and sharing all the GORGEOUS images of their special day is wedding photographer AHMETZE .....Ahmetze's work is SO beautiful and I'm happy to have him stop by the cafe.

Patrice & Elijah's beautiful wedding story can also be seen at Essence Online Bridal Bliss....so make sure you check them out over there as well....Enjoy!!
