We are excited to share today's Black Bride Editorial Exclusive! Beautiful floral design, elegant styling, and romantic details are just a few of the reasons why we love this styled shoot. When Grace Arhin submitted the images of this lovely blush and gold styled shoot, we were immediately taken by the gorgeous model and the soft gold sequin accents which truly are the focal point of this shoot. There's so much to lovely in this shoot coordinated and designed by @_atouchofgraceevents and a team of super talented wedding pros.

And last, but certainly not least on the @viceventsnyc Wedding Wednesday takeover, is a sneak peak into my own wedding day with a never before seen video clip! ✨
Having planned my own wedding last year has given me a whole new perspective on what I do everyday for my brides. The glamour of being a wedding planner is what attracted me to this profession, but trust me, it isn't always pretty! It takes a tremendous amount of hard work and sacrifice to create these beautiful memories for my #VictoriousCouples . So what has kept me going is that I adore each of my clients and I treat their wedding day as if it were my own. To me, there is nothing more satisfying than that. ✨

@unlimitedblacklove thank you so much for having me as your guest today! And I hope all of your followers and members have enjoyed my tips! If you are need of proposal planning or wedding planning services, check out my IG page @viceventsnyc. I can't wait to work with you!
Another important tip in the @viceventsnyc Wedding Wednesday takeover is to not neglect the importance of being well dressed for your engagement shoot. These photos will play a very important role in your wedding planning journey. You'll be inclined to include them in your save the date, on your wedding website, and even put them on display for your wedding day.
For my own engagement shoot, I hired professional Black stylists to make us look & feel like a million bucks. With the assistance of @vaingloriousbrides, I asked @pantorainc to create two custom looks for me -- one fun & playful, and the other sparkly & sexy. I felt so amazing!
And we can't forget about our men, ladies! @mr_baldwinstylegrooms put together two very sharp looks for my husband @iknowmikemusic.
Both of our looks complimented each other perfectly and helped us to maintain a cohesive theme leading up to our wedding day. *swipe left for more* Be sure to hire a professional stylist to take your look from drab to fab!

We are dancing in our seats for this @viceventsnyc Wedding Wednesday takeover! One of the perks of being a wedding planner is connecting with the very best Black wedding entertainers. My husband @iknowmikemusic & I are known as #theDJandthePlanner and I absolutely love working with him as he is a phenomenal DJ and I can be rest assured that the our clients & their guests will be dancing all night long. We also have access to a wealth of talented musicians, dancers and live bands to enhance any wedding celebration. ✨
For our #VictoriousCouple @uravggf &@uravgconsumer, we tapped @kwalitystrings to serenade their guests during the ceremony with his unique blend of hip hop/R&B with a classical flair. And for @fabulouslez & Eddie's "Coming to America" themed wedding I reached out to @casabrazilia to choreograph a custom dance routine paying homage to the film. *swipe left for more* Be sure to give your guests the ultimate experience with top quality entertainment!

When you look at these photos, you see a beautiful bride preparing to marry the man of her dreams, but what I see is the power of God's redemption! Her story is like none I've ever witnessed.
I watched her go thru every emotion (love, hurt, depression, and forgiveness), and then I watched God restore her relationship and make it more than she could've ever imagined! Her story is the true definition of beauty for ashes!
Sometimes God has to burn down the old to make room for the new! Introducing, Mrs. DeTangelia Williams who re-married the love of her life! Thank you @bbrave03 for allowing me to be a part of your journey! ❤️
Don't feel like you're limited to soft pinks for your bridesmaids -- go bold! 💥✨ In fact, deeper colors & jewel-tone colors tend to flatter more skin tones! ---

It's all about the details in this @viceventsnyc @unlimitedblacklove Wedding Wednesday takeover! I love collaborating with other talented black vendors for our #VictoriousWeddings . The flowers and decor by @lilyvevents for this wedding were so over the top fabulous that I had to pinch myself to make sure I wasn't dreaming! Our #VictoriousBride @sweetchocolata25 fell in love with fuchsia, teal and gold as her color palette. Lily V brought vibrant pink hues into the blooms and napkins and paired it with gold linens, tables and chairs. And a pop of teal could be seen in the stunning custom menus from @parchmentbydami. *swipe left for more* Details matter, so be sure to hire a dream team to create magic for your big day!
