Raquel & Shakena

Shortly after the law was passed in MS for same-sex marriages to be legal,  Raquel and Shakena became my first legal same sex marriage.


They were married on the beach at sunset in Pascagoula, MS with a small group of friends and family. 


It was a very emotional wedding not only for the brides, but also for those attending.

Their first kiss was  the first of many in a future they had long waited for.

The Beautiful ring exchange and promises between these two will last a lifetime, Pinky Swear!

The excitiment between these two  was off the wall. What an exciting couple to work with and an honor to unite in marriage.  Congratulations to the both of you and many wonderful Blessed years ahead.  Oh, They are planning on having another wedding in April which they say is going to be  bigger and better. I can't wait to renew their vows with them.

Raquel and Shakena have done it again!! They renewed their wedding vows in a beautiful wedding ceremony in Moss Point Orange Grove Community Center. Bernadettes Engagements of Gautier,Mississippi did a beautiful job decorating  and cateringfor the wedding and reception.  The photos below that are here were taken by a cellphone by my assistant Photographer as we were not the lead for the photography.  I did however have the honor to officate the vow renewals for this fun and emotional ceremony.
