Remy and Lamont set the foundation for their love story with an unbreakable friendship. “Over time, I just knew I couldn’t live without him,” admits the beaming bride. “Every time I imagined my future, he was in it.”
Remy’s stunning mermaid style wedding gown came from popular bridal designer Winnie Couture. “They were amazing about picking out dresses based on my vision,” she tells us.
Remy’s longtime hair stylist, Barry Reynolds from She Salon, gave her a low chignon bun for the big day and styled her bridal party. Tar’Ra Nichole, from Love Your Transformation, did a wonderful job on makeup for all the ladies.
“The positive evolution of our relationship and the way she made me want to be a better man helped me know she was ‘The One,’” says Lamont.
“I ended up falling in love with the top of one dress and the bottom of another, so they custom made my dress,” says Remy, who chose to accessorize with a birdcage veil and ostrich feather hair piece.

Bridesmaids and family members signed a keepsake plate for Remy and Lamont before the wedding began, which made it easy for the newlyweds to have a piece of their wedding day with them always.
“I wanted my girls to feel comfortable, but more than anything I wanted their personalities to shine,” admits Remy. “So, I let them pick their own dresses.”
The guys found their wedding day digs at a local bridal boutique. “The black and white colors were chosen to match the overall color scheme,” says Lamont. “I wanted to stand out a bit, so I chose to wear the white dinner coat.”
Eight groomsmen were by Lamont’s side on his wedding day. What a classy bunch—they sure are wearing those suits. Let’s hear it for the fellas!
We adore this sassy, fun bridal party shot of Remy and her girls.
“The thing I love most about Lamont is his intelligence,” says Remy. “What’s even more attractive is that he’s so humble that he would be shocked to know that he’s one of the smartest people I know.”
“Remy is the most positive person I’ve ever met,” Lamont tells us. “She has such a vibrant attitude and energy that reflect in all aspects of her life. Remy is also incredibly intelligent with a thirst to learn new things all the time.”
“I chose Remy to be my wife because I couldn’t imagine the rest of my life without her,” says Lamont. “Her personality, her beauty and her undeniable love for me were all part of me wanting to call her my wife.”
“It’s impossible to not love her caring attitude,” says Lamont. “She is extremely loyal and has unwavering love for those she considers to be close friends and family.”
“My dad walked me down the aisle,” says beaming bride Remy. “He has been there for me all my life and I knew this would be a proud moment for him, so I wanted to share that with him.” The bride’s cousin Dana Master, who sings in a jazz band and came to visit all the way from Ireland, sang “At Last” by Etta James for the special moment.
Remy’s bridesmaids held lovely all-white bouquets of hydrangeas. A few got a little misty-eyed during the couple’s heartfelt ceremony. “The ceremony was supposed to be outside on the terrace with the city as the backdrop, but due to inclement weather, we had it inside instead,” says Remy.
“We wrote our own vows independently,” says Remy. “We’re not very traditional so we wanted to use this opportunity to speak from the heart. It was very surreal looking into his eyes. That was the moment I had thought about for so long. When it happened I tried my hardest to take it all in. Hearing the vows he wrote for me was such an amazing moment because they were so heartfelt and touching.” Lamont was just as thrilled to be there with her. “It felt like time was standing still and I was amazed at how beautiful she looked.”
“I knew in my heart Lamont was the man I wanted to spend the rest of my life with,” says Remy. “I couldn’t imagine my life without him.”
Could the backdrop to Remy and Lamont’s big day have been any more beautiful? We think not!
“When I had my wedding dress on, I wore purple peep toe heels,” says shoe diva Remy. “My wedding gift from Lamont was a gorgeous pair of snakeskin, Tory Burch heels, so I wore those for the reception when my dress style was shorter.”
With 16 people in their bridal party, snapping group shots like this was no easy task, so they just decided to have fun with it. (Silly shots sometimes make the best ones.)
After the ceremony, the wedding party and immediate family went to take pictures while guests enjoyed a cocktail hour with passed hors d’oeuvres. The evening reception kicked off with wedding party and family introductions. “Lamont and I then made our grand entrance and had our first dance to ‘Angel’ by Anita Baker,” says Remy who couldn’t wait to continue the celebration.
No matter where their cherished guests were seated, they were treated to first class decor and breathtaking panoramic views. Wedding planner Jan Hill McBee of La Fete Weddings and Events helped bring the couple’s vision to life. “She was amazing and a crucial part of all the planning details,” says Remy.
One of the things we love most about Remy and Lamont’s portraits is how unique they are. The happy couple hosted a Southern-themed reception dinner complete with fried chicken, mac and cheese and cheddar biscuits.
“Being a bride was all that I dreamt it would be,” explains Remy. “My wedding day was perfect, not only because I was marrying the man I loved, but because I was surrounded by all the people I love most, too.”
Remy’s favorite bloom, the anemone, popped up once again on their elegant wedding cake.
“All around the cake we had small apple pie crisps with caramel and small New York cheescakes that had several toppings you could drizzle on top,” says Remy.
Remy and Lamont dined with their bridal party beneath the city lights.
The newlyweds were celebrated non-stop as many friends and family stood up to give toasts.
All of Remy’s Delta Sigma Theta sorority sisters serenaded her with the organization’s sweetheart song.
Even the Atlanta skyline seemed to blend in with the theme and colors of the couple’s wedding day. “Surprisingly, we didn’t have any wedding bloopers,” says Remy. “Our entire wedding weekend went off without a hitch!”
The bottom of Remy’s mermaid gown zipped off so that she could convert it into a short, sassy party gown. (Brilliant!) “DJ Tron was the entertainment,” she recalls. “As soon as he started playing music, we knew it was going to be exactly the kind of celebration we desired.”
“I was extremely happy to share my love for Remy with her and our family and friends on our wedding day,” says Lamont.
“We love our wedding photos so much,” Remy tells us. “We have so many pictures that I’m sure we feel are our favorites. The photographers did an amazing job capturing the essence of how beautiful the day was.”
Lamont and Remy left the reception party in an all-white vintage car and headed to St. Lucia for their honeymoon. Tell us which wedding details were your favorite and leave the newlyweds some comment love below. Want to see your wedding featured in Bridal Bliss? Email us now!
