At the close of summer, another of our lovely couples, Lorraine and Alim, tied the knot at The Fox Hollow in Woodbury, New York. I first met the bride during an appearance of mine on The Wendy Williams Show seven years ago. She was a producer on that show at the time, but is now Vice President of Programming for True Entertainment and Executive Producer of Bravo's hit "The Real Housewives of Atlanta." When she became engaged and called me to help plan her wedding, I was beyond thrilled ... and the rest in history.
Lorraine and Alim are both proud New Yorkers, so much of their wedding's design stemmed from that. We designed and executed an extravagantly beautiful affair where hues of purple and grey took center stage. The venue's lush, outdoor garden was chosen for the ceremony, which featured a wooden pergola draped in flowing fabric and fresh flowers. A live jazz duo provided romantic accompaniment, as the bride walked down the aisle to Chrisette Michele's Golden. Upon entering the ballroom, more romantic details were revealed such as towering centerpieces, specialty lighting, a multi-tiered wedding cake plus an elaborately displayed Jamaican Black Cake. Overall, it was a wedding flanked by love and the joy of family and friends. Beautiful.
We wish Lorraine and Alim a lifetime of love and happiness and it's our pleasure to share some of the best moments of their wedding day below, thanks to Boschelli Photography.
