The bride on her special day: 

“My husband is West Indian (Jamaican, specifically), so we gave away traditional Jamaican black cake and jerk spice as favors. We could not go without the amazing traditional reggae set during the reception. To represent my African-American culture, we had this beautiful diamond encrusted jumping broom dripping in antique broaches and crystal beading. It was a showstopper!”

Our Most Memorable Moment:

“Though my day was absolutely lovely, the private moment shared with my husband right after the ceremony was really my most memorable. We rode in an antique charcoal gray antique Rolls-Royce in the rain. It was exactly what we needed. The next moment was the wonderful toast from my husband’s 18-year-old son. It was heartfelt, very emotional, and definitely one of the best, if not the best, moment of the night.”
