LaVana & James' Cheney Place Wedding

The Cheney Place Wedding Photographer, Historia Collective joined LaVana and James and their families this past August 18th as they jumped the broom. Levana and James met at their freshman orientation. LaVana and James happened to sit next to each other during one of the sessions and exchanged twitter handles. A couple of weeks into their freshmen year, James tweeted LaVana and they eventually met up. James mentioned in his vows he remembers LaVana was pretty different in a “good kind of way”. His best man said in his toast… “James knew there was something there right away”. Levana and James dated through all of undergrad and got engaged while LaVana was in medical school in front of the same building they met in… Harrison Auditorium.
The Cheney Place Wedding, full of modern flair with geometric shapes and beautiful oversized floral installations, was the couple’s venue of choice. While the couple got away for a sweet hour of romantic portraits, the guests enjoyed a cocktail hour in the Cheney Place ( 2nd floor). The toasts at this wedding were so heartfelt and meaningful; the couple themselves stood up to thank their guests for the roles they played in their love story and making the day happen.

We said goodnight after some super fun full dance floor photos and LaVana & James whisked away on their honeymoon. Four weeks later, we met up in the studio for their photo reveal… one that topped my attendance records with a full 8 guests! Lisa, Katie, and Troy are so thankful they got to spend this day capturing this special occasion for LaVana and James. Our team looks forward to many happy memories captured for the Green and Higgs families.
