Talittla and Andre Smith are a captivating and somewhat shy couple, despite his fame as a Cincinnati Bengals right tackle. When I first met them, in an upscale restaurant for lunch, Andre did not know that I knew who he was. As soon as he found out that I knew, a shy and charming smile spread across his face. Talittla looked up at him adoringly.

They needed a planner for their wedding, so we sat and interviewed each other over that first of many lunches.  We ended up being the perfect match, as Talittla knew the look and style she wanted, but needed help in pulling it all together.

Over many months of working hand in hand, wedding day was everything she had dreamed of! Elegant, extravagant décor that included an amazing custom-built ceremony arbor by Jackie of Dana’s Florals, fabulous food stations, His and Her’s lounges, a cocktail hour with lighting that changed from sunlight to starry night sky, and bling everywhere, including the bride’s cake by Shannon at Sweet Spot Confections. The Groom’s cake was designed to showcase Andre’s career highlights.

This wedding could only have happened with the help of a fabulous team that included Jerrod Brown Photography, Game Day Tents Company, Alan’s Invitations, Heather Dill at The Wynfrey Hotel, and Videography by Holloway Productions.
