It's time to share another gorgeous 2018 wedding!!! Michael & DeJohnna were married back in April at a brand new venue in Chesapeake, NOAHS Event Venue. NOAHS is a national brand, with locations all over and I was so pumped when DeJohnna told me they were booking the newest location for their big day. It definitely did not disappoint! The venue is absolutely gorgeous and has the most incredible staff. I can't wait for my next wedding there!!
Michael & DeJohnna had a two-year long engagement and I had the best time really getting to know them while we planned their dream wedding. It's always a blast when you feel like you gain a friend throughout planning and that was certainly true in this case! This couple is so fun to be around....they literally light up a room when they're together...and their friends and family were a great time too! I just love these two to pieces and I'm so excited to share their wedding day with you!
HUGE highlight of the wedding day....Michael & DeJohnna seemed to be trying to out-do each other for the award of best wedding gift. And to be honest, I can't even decide who I think won! DeJohnna gifted Michael with a pair of Enchroma glasses. He is color blind and she wanted to make sure that he fully experienced all the beauty of Jamaica on their honeymoon. When he put those glasses on and looked over at the balloons she was holding....well I couldn't help but cry! It was the sweetest thing ever!
And then Michael really hit a home run with....drum roll please....BEYONCE TICKETS!! Her face says it all....but the scream that accompanied it was pretty epic too.
One of my favorite parts of the wedding day was Michael & DeJohnna's unity ceremony. They decided to do a Tasting of the Four Elements ceremony. They tasted something that was sour, bitter, hot, and sweet and their officiant talked about how each one pertained to a life experience they will eventually go through together. It was the first time I'd seen that and it was so cool!
And as usual, HUGE thank you to our amazing vendor team! You were all such a pleasure to work with!
