We love receiving Real Wedding submissions directly from our couples. This bold Gold, Black and Red wedding was submitted by a beautiful couple in our Atlanta Perfect Wedding Guide market.
The shimmer of gold, the addition of feathers in the bouquet and a show-stopping, non-traditional gown got out attention!
Here’s what they had to say in their own words:
I’ve always dreamt of having one of those fairytale weddings you see on tv but never thought it’d actually happen for me.
It wasn’t easy, but my wife and I made our dreams become reality all while maintaining our busy household with our 4 beautiful kids.
We are both spontaneous people so wedding planning was very nerve wrecking for us; however, our wedding planner Cordara Taylor made our day very seamless! Not once did things feel out of control or rushed. The decor was amazing and months later, our guests are still talking about our wedding day!
When our photos came back, we were in shock all over again! Andre Brown is an amazing photographer that not only takes amazing pictures but tells a story through his work.
My bridal party ensured that this would be a time to remember and Aisha Reed, one of my matrons, helped me from beginning to end. She helped me with every aspect of the planning even taking time out of her life to support me in my decision to go with a non-traditional dress and going to scheduled fittings. She suggested Caron Crawford of Crawford Couture to design my dress and honestly this the best decision I could’ve made!
Aisha pushed me to do what made me happy and for that, I will always be appreciative.
My wife and I will never forget our wedding day!
We were beyond pleased from beginning to end and can honestly say that we did everything we wanted with no regrets!
It’s cliché but this truly was the best day ever!
Congratulations Donika and Malakia!
