Pharris Photos Featured on PartySlate for Ray J & Princess Love’s Wedding
Love & Hip Hop: Hollywood stars Ray J and Princess Love made it official in a ceremony fit for royalty. Their celebration, as designed by Darryl Wilson for Diann Valentine Living Well, was elegant with every little detail attended to.
Love’s bouquet, created by 19eleven events, was bursting with delicate pink and cream roses studded with crystals. Flower girls in white dresses were adorned in sweet floral crowns. Even Ray J and Princess Love’s white maltese pups were in attendance, riding down the aisle in a white and gold cart. The flower-adorned, high fashion, ceremony was the perfect setting for the couple to exchange “I Dos.
The glamour carried over into the decor at Vibiana—originally the city’s first Archdiocese Catholic cathedral, now a gorgeous event space. With the spot’s towering ceilings and arches and columns galore, the reception felt spacious and intimate at once.
Tables were decked out in ornate embroidered linens from What’s the Occasion Linens & Decor and topped with gold-accented glassware, plates, and silver for an enchanted touch. Each chair was lovingly outfitted in pale pink tulle with tassels by Wildflower Linens. Lofty centerpieces held arrangements of cascading white hydrangeas, peonies and roses, with pops of hot pink accent flowers.
The couple cut into a gorgeous all-white seven-tiered cake designed by Princess Love with Roobina’s Cakes. The pastry towered over the bride and groom with intricate marzipan flowers pinned with crystal centers and a middle tier quilted with more of the sparkling stones.
The event was a family affair with Ray J’s father, Willie, officiating the ceremony and big sister, Brandy, singing the Etta James’ classic “At Last” for the couple’s first dance. Every little special moment was beautifully captured by Pharris Photography and videographer We Are Victory.
