There is No Time Limit to Mercy Kalu & Chiem Amadi
Moving at God's speed is how I can describe this planning of Mercy's wedding.
Sometimes our plans are not our plans so the unexpected might happen. For in Mercy Kalu's case, she unexpectedly had to change her wedding date by moving it a few months earlier for some unforeseen reasons. There were a few concerns but nothing too hard for us nor our vendors. Mercy was always so sweet and apologetic that we made sure to accommodate her to our best. I knew the perfect vendor that would be great in a time like this so I called on Patrick of City Iris. He provided the flower decor, the wedding gown (with dress modifications and alterations), the veil, invitations and her table numbers. He worked a miracle under pressure and as you will see it all turned out beautiful. The photos were gorgeous provided by Emma Cleary and she has a great eye for detail and caught some good stuff.
Originally, my coordinator was set to coordinate alone but with the date change I was available. But I still let Jenny shine as the coordinator on the wedding day as you will see in the photos.
Mercy's wedding was a day to remember. From entering the sanctuary, then her per-rehearsed dance with her brother and sister, then to ending the night by changing to their traditional Nigerian outfits, all I could do is chuckle thinking it all turned out how she envisioned and the same can happen to you!
