Stylish, chic, and sophisticated is the only way to describe Ekecia Grayson. I mean this bride is a trendsetter. She had me in awe at the first email when I read her love story featured in Essence. Then to working with an Attorney for a State Agency and a State Representative for Florida, I was honored. I was suddenly in anticipation of the arrival of each email. She created actual newsletters to wedding party with updates of their chosen apparel and down to the shoes selection. Ekecia is a visionary and her husband Dwayne Taylor made sure her dream came true! Not only was this Floridian bride going to have a Tampa celebration but a destination wedding at the World Renowned Waldorf Astoria. Ladies, you gotta love a man like that to give his bride two weddings!
On the wedding day, I remember walking into her room after my fabulous makeup artist Starr Blackshere finished making the bride beautiful, her photographer Sterling will have an easy job with this radiant bride!
Everything was picture perfect from the cake centerpieces, to the video footage captured by Andy and the exquisite services provided by The Waldorf Astoria. Ekecia received the Best of everything and that's why God blessed her with the Best Man Dwayne!
Ekecia and Dwayne it was a pleasure to work with you. I pray you will continue to have heavenly days in your marriage!
