Wedding Story

Love Jones

CJ and I met online. We both were not looking for a relationship but I am glad that did not stop us! We dated for a few months and then CJ popped the question!! I said yes! A year passed before we actually started planning the wedding.

I have to say we had the wedding of our dreams!

Our theme was "Love Jones"! Our colors were red and blush with black and pewter as our accent colors. We had our wedding at Elaborate Events in Duluth, GA. My girls and I wore Vera Wang which I have always wanted a gown designed by her. My dress was an ivory and blush ball gown. CJ wore an all ivory tux. The two of us decided to wear red Chuck Taylors!

Our wedding was very intimate. Our daughters gave me away which was very touching. CJ's father is deceased so I surprised her with a special tribute to her dad. The entire wedding party knew about the tribute and I am so happy that they helped me with it and kept it a surprise!

CJ had a wonderful surprise for me. She knows I love Vera Wang so purchased our knife set and toasting flutes for us to have! We are going to make them our family heirloom!

Our food was great! We served salmon and turkey. At the last minute I wanted to have a candy buffet at the reception which was a hit! I the music was great. The wedding party danced to the wobble to get things started!!!!!

For our honeymoon we went to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic! We had a great time and it was very beautiful!

We had wonderful vendors! Our cake was delicious. Cakes by Lameeka did an excellent job. Ricky Town was our photographer and he did a fantastic job! Our coordinator Savvy House helped keep me calm and ensured me everything will be ok and it was. I stepped out on faith and made our flowers and I must say they came out beautiful!
