I started working with Kanika on a dark rainy night as I was driving back from New Orleans to Birmingham. We must have talked for over an hour about her wedding vision, and how we could work together to bring it to life.
As the months went by, the details fell into place, and we found the perfect reception venue, The Capital City Club, in Montgomery, Alabama. Her church was to be the historic Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church, the birthplace for the Civil Rights Movement in the State of Alabama. I was completely in awe walking through for the first time; knowing that it held so much history.
Our attention to small details really ramped up the WOW power of the reception; the custom lighting that changed from soft cream to red towards the end of the first dance, candlelight everywhere, and a magnificent head table lined with red roses. A photo booth and two fabulous cakes added to the fun.
But what really made this event so touching was the closeness of their family, the sweetness of their friends, and the wonder of a simple ceremony in such a significant historic landmark.
