Our A Beautiful Forever couple were married a couple of weeks ago just outside Philadelphia at Aloft Mt. Laurel, one of Southern New Jersey's sassiest venues. When we first met with the bride and her mom the only
detail decided upon was the date, so we worked together for over a year
concepting and planning an experience their loved ones would never forget. Every aspect, every vendor, every detail was researched and selected with care. Thus, when we shared Tonisha and CeAndre's engagement photos in January all were extremely anxious for the anticipated wedding day to come to fruition. Well ... mission accomplished!
Again, on what was officially the last day of Summer, our team successfully achieved the modern and romantic ambiance the bride and groom set out to create. Hues of Malibu blue, grey and white took center stage. Our team designed and executed decor for the entire event, which included florals! The ceremony space was draped in flowing white fabric and featured a gorgeous specialty aisle runner, 6-ft crystal towers with billowing plumes atop, a live jazz trio plus a spiritual dance performance. After the exchange of vows and as cocktail hour came to a close, guests perused a larger-than-life illuminated seating chart which featured the bride and groom's engagement photo. Upon entering the ballroom, more romantic details were revealed such as 2 styles of towering centerpieces, an 18-person head table, specialty linens, specialty lighting and a 3-tiered, damask patterned wedding cake. Finally at dusk, the bride and groom invited their guests to join them in releasing wish lanterns in memory of cherished loved ones who had previously passed away. Overall, it was a love-filled beginning to a beautiful forever.
We wish Tonisha and CeAndre 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 Rashad Pleasant Photography.
And last but not least ... a few of TBP's quick snapshots as well.
