Melissa and Rodney's Mango & Azalea Elegance!

I met Melissa over a year and a half ago while I was planning my own wedding and between now and then we have established more than a client/planner relationship, we have become friends. We worked hard to bring to life her primary color scheme theme of Mango and Azalea and her secondary theme of Diamonds, playing on the groom's cool last name. I truly enjoyed planning and coordinating this wedding and I even got to co-MC during the Reception with her DJ. The ceremony was absolutely breathtaking and my husband I were able to design and print many items for her wedding and reception. One unique thing about the ceremony was that the had a Steel Pan player. Melissa had her hairstylist and make-up artist style her hair one way for the ceremony and a different way for the reception. My favorite part of the Reception was their grand entrance to the James Bond 007/Kanye West Re-make of "Diamonds are Forever." Congratulations Melissa and Rodney and we wish you nothing but a lifetime of joy and happiness. Professional Pictures COMING SOON....

Throwback Thursdays: Shawn Stockman & Sharhonda Jones "True Blue" Wedding

Boyz II Men singer Shawn Stockman met Sharhonda Jones in 1993 at the Billboard Music Awards and ironicallly at the time Shawn was dating someone else. When she strated working for Boyz II Men in 1994 it was strictly professional but she loved Shawn's personality and prayed to God to find somebody like him. Well, God decided to bless her with the real thing! Shawn proposed to Sharhonda in 1999 after a visit to Michael Jackson's Neveland Ranch where they watched Runaway Bride.

Date: September 1, 2001

Place: The Wyndham Hotel Toledo, Ohio

Theme: Periwinkle Blue

Highlights: Sharhonda's mother walked her down the aisle to the Boyz II Men Ballad I Do. Celebrity planner and my inspiration Diann Valentine transfored the Whyndam into an elegant blue oasis. The dance floor was a plexiglass fish tank with blue water of course and goldfish. A blue carpet was put down on the ballroom floor. DJ Biz Markie kept everyone dancing and R&B singer Joe sang for the bride and groom.

Tasty Tuesdays: The Midnight Snack

One of the latest and cutest wedding trends that is becoming increasingly popular is the Midnight Snack. Just what is a Midnight Snack you ask? It's a little treat that can range from sweets to mini burgers that you give your guests towards the end of the night after they have been having a great time dancing and most likely have "the munchies".

If you have the budget for it, the Midnight Snack will most definitely add a special touch to your wedding and your guests will appreciate it. Here are the Midnight Snack labels I designed in Photoshop for Melissa's wedding this Friday. These labels will be put on boxes and utilized during the Vieneese hour:
