Cassandra’s co-workers convinced her to join BlackPeopleMeet.com, despite her skepticism. Three weeks later, she received a message from her future husband, Marlon. The rest, as they say, is history.

“Whenever Marlon wasn’t around me, I immediately began to miss him,” says bride Cassandra. “That’s when I knew he was the one. I also knew it when I saw how he interacted with my teenage kids. He always took the time to make sure that I was okay and the kids were too.” Their evening Atlanta wedding was modern, elegant and oh-so-romantic. Share their love!
"Every time we're together we thoroughly enjoy each other's company," says Marlon. Cassandra was so excited to say "I do" that she even used the famous vow to decorate the bottoms of her wedding shoes.
For any bride looking to be comortable and cute on her wedding day, sometimes a shoe change is in order. Cassandra had these custom blue Converse kicks handy to slip into when it was picture-taking and dancing time.
The team at Edge Design Group in Atlanta was responsible for creating fabulous florals for the couple's wedding day. They decorated a lush bunch of David Austin roses with beautiful brooches made from black crystals. It was a lovely combination.
"Marlon has a sweet spirit and big heart and I married him because I know he will love me unconditionally," says Cassandra. "The way he caters to my soul made me realize that he was the one God made just for me."
The ladies' lovely black evening gowns were designed by Angelina Faccenda. "I decided on the style because I wanted them to look soft and regal," says Cassandra. "I chose the color black because it's both elegant and classy."
Marlon found his dapper digs at a local boutique with a little help from their wedding planner, Brian Green of F&G Weddings. "He was amazing," says Cassandra. "We suggest everyone hire them. Brian took care of everything!"
Cassandra donned a diamond bracelet, matching earrings and a hairstyle she knew she could trust on her wedding day. "Scoobie and I did a trial run back in January," she explains. "I wanted something soft, but sexy, that would be versatile from the ceremony to the reception."
"Cassandra loves the city lights, so once we visited Ventanas and admired the panoramic views of downtown Atlanta, we both collectively knew that this was the place where wanted to get married," Marlon tells us. For her big entrance, the bride made her way down a grand staircase. We love this venue!
"What I love most about Cassandra is her caring heart," says the happy groom. "She truly cares about how I feel and what makes me happy, and she is a genuine person who is honest and loves to laugh and smile all the time."
Cassandra had the pleasure of both her father and her stepfather's company on the way down the aisle. "I wanted them both to walk me down because they raised me, guided and me and have always loved me," she says. "By doing this, it made me feel like my fathers were confirming that they trusted the man they were giving me away to."
