He's The One!
Within their first year of dating, Keiwana just knew she’d found her mate for life. “He was my best friend and I couldn’t imagine spending life with anyone else,” she shares. See how their romantic “I dos” unfolded.
“My wedding dress was designed by Lazaro,” says Keiwana. “It wasn’t very difficult finding it compared to stories I’ve heard from other brides. I went to Bridal by Lori to film Say Yes to the Dress Atlanta with close family and friends. I tried on maybe seven dresses before I found the one. The hardest part of the process was finding the silhouette that was the most flattering.”
“I never pictured myself as being a bride so it was a little surreal,” says Keiwana. “I’ve never felt more beautiful than I did that day. It was an experience that I will always carry with me and cherish.”
“The bridesmaid’s dresses were designed by Amsale,” says the bride. “The color and style was decided by what I thought would look good on everyone in the bridal party. The color selected was a slate gray. I wanted this color to complement the blush pink flowers.”
The groomsman were super dapper in Jean Yves. “We knew that we wanted something different from the traditional black tux so we decided on the color gray,” Keiwana explains. “I picked out the tux but the groom did the final approval.”
“The flowers for the wedding and reception centerpieces were a mix of hydrangeas, roses and lilies,” says Keiwana. “I had lots of white flowers as well as blush pink flowers. My bouquet included white nosegay roses. The florist really helped me choose the flowers because I was unsure of what I wanted. After seeing the options I had that’s the look we decided on. We wanted it to be a romantic feel in the reception room.”
“When deciding on a venue we wanted something that was spacious enough for the ceremony and reception as well as cocktail hour,” says Keiwana. “We really wanted a venue that would accommodate our guest without everyone standing on top of each other. We also wanted an appealing place for photography as well as a place that had dedicated parking. Our venue had plenty of room for everything that we wanted and needed.”
“I was elated when we were at the altar,” the bride admits. “I can’t recall a time where I have been happier than I was at that moment. I felt all the love and joy in the world in that moment. I didn’t realize that it was possible for me to love him more than I already did until that very moment.”
