Featured Parties: Team MarJay – Simply Chic

Event Date: September 30, 2011

I began working with Marcia and JJ, a Jamaican couple living in Canada in early 2011.  Marcia said to me, “I want a purple and yellow wedding that is simple, chic, fun and has bling and i’m not sure how to make that happen.” I told her that is what I am there for and together we will make it happen…and together we did.

It was a pleasure working side by side with Marcia on bringing her vision to life. To be so in sync with your client kinda makes my job too easy (not really but you get the point).  Together we planned the fun, purple and yellow, simply chic affair with an outdoor ceremony and indoor cocktail hour and reception. An evening of reggae music, belly-aching laughter, a flash mob, Jamaican Rum Cake -yumm,  and even a few surprises… like the rain that happen to start minutes before the outdoor ceremony, and a sweet and sour candy bar, topped off this fabulous event that I still smile about today.

Here, see for yourself:

Parties: Vanessa + Kibwe (Shamless Family Plug)

Shameless plug alert. Take a look at my Niece Vanessa’s (yes I said Niece) wedding video. Isn’t she stunning!

The wedding took place in Canada on May 27, 2011 and in it you will see Vanessa’s handsome groom singing a song her wrote for his wife. I have easily watched this video a thousand times and get teary-eyed every time! I look forward to buying his single on I-tunes:)

God bless you Vanessa & Kibwe on a long lasting and eternally blessed marriage!
