Benita & Jamos: Childhood Sweethearts
Sacramento couple, Benita and Jamos, met in grade school and their love and relationship grew through their university years at Sacramento State where they captured their gorgeous engagement session. Dedicated members of Alpha Phi Alpha and Delta Sigma Theta, their university brothers and sisters played a central role in their union–especially on the dance floor.
The gorgeous couple married at the idyllic Bay Club StoneTree golf course with loved ones watching their exchange of vows at an outdoor ceremony as the sun set over Mount Tamalpais. The celebration moved inside for dinner, dancing and lots of laughter. With the wedding planning help of Platinum Events, they enjoyed a fun-filled day incorporating many wedding traditions, all documented beautifully by Teresa K Photography. In particular, during the getting-ready portion of the day, Teresa captured the love, friendship and anticipation of the bride and groom as they exchanged gifts and the bridal parties dressed for the occasion—navy for the bridesmaids and gray suits with navy bow ties for the groomsmen. Benita and James honored many other traditions including jumping the broom, the dollar dance, a groom’s cake and a very lively bouquet and garter toss.
