Bridal Bliss: Sydnisha and Johnathan’s Black-Tie Wedding Was A Work Of Art
Dexter D. Cohen

After meeting through mutual high school friends, Sydnisha and Johnathan solidified a bond that carried on throughout their 20s. Their favorite couple’s activity is getting dressed up and traveling to take Instagram-worthy photos (don’t you love it when bae hits all the right angles?) It was just a normal day when they got up to do one of their mini photo shoots. Little did Syd know, Johnathan had the surprise of a lifetime up his sleeve. “I had my back to him, asking him if I looked good, but he wasn’t responding. I turned around to face him, and there he was on one knee.”

The engagement photos weren’t captured, but they certainly made up for it with the wedding. The couple decided against their original plan of having a destination wedding and instead chose Norfolk, Virginia’s Chrysler Museum of Art. The classic yet regal atmosphere was the perfect backdrop to their big day, and the weather gods cooperated.

Take a scroll through for Sydnisha and Johnathan’s beautiful wedding moments.
