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....
