Tamara and Clement had such an amazing two day wedding celebration in Morrow, GA. Even though they lived in New York during the entire planning process, we worked seamlessly together to create both of their wedding celebrations.


I knew Tamara for about a year and a half before we began planning her wedding. This helped so much in her ability to trust me to give her and her fiance exactly what they wanted for their wedding. Trust is so important with my clients.


I was so excited to find out that Clement and Tamara wanted to invest the same amount of time, money and efforts into both their Nigerian and American wedding celebrations. 


Tamara, who is African America, definitely  had a "go big or go home" mentality for both wedding celebrations and she also wanted to honor Clement's Nigerian culture which I absolutely LOVED!

For their white wedding, which took place the very next day at the same venue, the couple wanted a "red carpet affair" theme. And what's a red carpet affair theme without an actual red carpet entrance with a live commentator and "paparazzi" photographer. Clement and Tamara spared no expense on the experience their guests had from the moment they walked into the reception.


The reception was adorned with floor to ceiling draping with bold red up lighting. We had fun mixing their linen with sequin, lace and satin selections. We also had a beautiful mixture of low lush centerpieces and high crystal centerpieces
