The founding father of Christian Rap Music, Urban D, Fire, Rain, Patty Duke, Vintage Glass collections, Paint, and a Maid of Honor’s attempt at seducing the groom at an early age (she tagged along for all of the bride and grooms first dates as a wee laddie,) with Skittles… These are some of the most AWESOME things to know about Malori and Deven’s super fun, super silly, super sweet wedding at the Tampa Firefighters Museum. Thank you for allowing us to be apart of your amazing day… I seriously LOVE you guys!
The black square plastic piece in Deven’s hand has been an inside joke since their early dating years! It was actually a chair topper that they would secretly gift to each other randomly from date to date, holiday to holiday in various creative ways back and forth… They unintentionally halted the fun and Deven went on to think it must have gotten lost, chucked, or the like… so that was apart of his wedding gift… I couldn’t help but throw it in here.
Could these little Swag Bags (for the kids) not be any cooler! Fully loaded with lei’s, maracas, a custom Malori and Deven fairytale coloring book, crayers, glow masks and so much more… SO RAD!
Behind the scenes of Malori and Deven’s Big Day.. was way too much fun not to include.. Here ya go!
Malori’s Mom, Stephanie was insistent everyone should know who Patty Duke was and how much they resembled her old school hair do…. she pulled up old episodes on the Ipad and proceeded to sing, tap her leg and giggle her way to the yester years… and then Malori was like… (well you can see for yourself)
A True Glimpse of the ‘Real Malori and Deven’ vs. ‘Model Malori and Deven’
When there is a will, there is a way… Malori’s younger sister was pretty bummed there wouldn’t be a bouquet toss… so we figured out a way to make it happen for her…and GUESS WHAT- SHE WON!
The night ended with the groom, bridesmaid, and father of the bride twerking off the stage… THE BEST!
