Throughout the years of marriage it should be celebrated by recommitting your vows to one another like Laurell and Kevin. I've been a part of the beginning stages of many couples coming together making decisions towards their wedding and sustaining the future together. My staff knows how I love maintaining my relationship that often forms into friendships with my clients that after the wedding we remain in contact with. But to see this couple post 15 years is a remarkable blessing and gives every couple something to look forward to.
Kevin and Laurell chose to do it big and in style at one of my favorite mansions "The Surf Club". It is one of the best places to host an event. The service is five star and you have so much ground to take photos. They had a beautiful beachside ceremony to which the sight was breathtaking. It was a wonderful day to be a part of these two renewing another lifetime of love together.

As a child, we go to school to learn the basic fundamentals towards a higher education. Along the way in school, we all make friends. Who wouldn't want to be a friend to such a compassionate, sweet and loving person like Melanie Soto? I bet Melanie didn't know one day at school while being herself, the friend she would meet is to become her future husband. Melanie's mother Anna Soto was referred by a past client (Lorenzo Ammons) to inquire of my services. I was delighted to meet the anxious bride and to my surprise she was a seasoned wedding guest. Melanie had attended quite a number of weddings so she was determined to make it different with tons of fun on the side. She searched for the best of the best for her wedding and her parents were there to support her along the way.
As the day approached Melanie was ready to head to the altar to marry her best friend. Nick Carter was there to captured every bit of emotion from start to end! Melanie and Anthony partied like never before with the rocking Jimmy Dee! This entertainment group kept the guests on their feet all night long. We even caught the bride and her dad doing the Souljah Boy! Classic times and classic moments that will be remembered for the rest of Melanie's life! We would like to wish Melanie and Anthony the best and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your wedding.

The Lord Has a way of directing people into my life for reasons. Some are for a season and while others are for a journey through life...This time a bride named Shalonda Williams fully relied on the Lord in choosing her vendors. He knew she needed vendors she could trust and rely on if confusion were to stir up. She prayed and she found me with one click. We had our first conversation over the phone and when I told her I was a Christian she knew the Lord guided her towards me and she did not have to look no further.
Shalonda wanted to create a classy, elegant affair so her mind was always stirring with creative ideas of bringing her wedding to the next level. I believe her husband Haisel can agree with me on that! Hahaha! I would receive emails for my opinion. Once the wedding date got closer all sorts of things began to stir up but I took that time to comfort Shalonda by assuring everything will be fine and tomorrow will be the day she marries her husband. And Joy came the next morning as Shalonda was beaming from dimple to dimple captured by Ricky!
Despite the double amount of guests (from 130 to 270), myself and my coordinator Manuel managed the wedding in one piece. The wedding was everything Shalonda and Haisel hoped for and more!
We pray for continuous joy and favor in your lives! God bless you both!
