Wedded Bliss: Christina Dorsey and Zachary Scott Mason

BLAC celebrates black love.

Christina is a legal analyst for Shermeta Law Group in Troy, and Zachary is an adjudicator for the State of Michigan, as well as a photographer and owner of ZSM Photography Studio. They currently reside in Harper Woods and honeymooned in Las Vegas. Here, Zachary shares details from their wedding day.

 

Date: Nov. 25-26, 2017

Ceremony: 12th Street Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit

Reception: Sinbad's Restaurant and Marina in Detroit

First dance: “Spend My Life With You” by Eric Benét Featuring Tamia

Photographer: Jared Davis Photography

 

THE TUXES

"My groomsmen and I were outfitted in three-piece Pierre Cardin worsted wool tuxedos from K&G Fashion Superstore in Harper Woods."

THE DRESS

"Christina wore a fitted Vera Wang gown with lace overlay from David's Bridal for the ceremony. For the reception the next day, she wore a knee-length halter dress also from David's Bridal."

THE INVITATIONS

"The 'invitation' was a simple text message to friends and family. We planned everything in a just two weeks."

THE CAKE

"Vanessa Lloyd Creations in Detroit provided a strawberry and marble cake and cupcakes with buttercream icing. She's been the family baker for over 20 years."

THE FOOD

"We enjoyed prime rib, baked chicken, orange roughy, roasted potatoes, rice, fettucine alfredo, mixed vegetables and tossed salad, served buffet-style. Fruit and cheese trays also circled around."

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT

"For me, it was super special to have my three sons serve as best men. Christina said, 'During the ceremony, when Zachary paused just before he kissed me, he looked at me like I was the most beautiful woman on the planet.'"
