Timitra (Mimi) and DeJuan decided to get married at the Ritz in Charlotte. They wanted a lovely ceremony and a nice, elegant party for the reception and I think we delivered!
First, they met when they were 15 years old, dated a few times, and then went their separate ways. They reconnected and we are so glad they did! He proposed in her house because he was just so excited! He couldn’t wait to get to the special night he had planned, so he just asked! They are both from a small town outside of Greensboro but live in Charlotte now.
Timitra wanted to make sure you could feel the love in the room and she wanted to have an opportunity to interact with all of her guests. And of course a little bit of wow factor! She was in a sorority in college, so we had a nod to that with the elephants. We kept everything very elegant with black, white, and gold as the motif. The lounge seating provided an area for guests to mingle and talk when they needed to rest their feet from the dance floor, which was not often! That dance floor was packed. Timitra even danced on the clouds for her first dance, definitely achieving that wow factor!
I had so much fun planning and working with Timitra! She is a sweetheart and just a joy to be around. I can see why she has so many friends and family that care so much about her, because she cares so much about them.
The day was perfect in every way! Timitra was relaxed and had fun getting ready, we set up everything and it looked and went exactly as planned, and her guests had a great time and stayed until the end! We can’t ask for more than that.
Timitra, we had so much fun planning together and I miss you guys! I wish you all the best!
