Ashanti & Barrie | Wedding at The Palmer Building | Charlotte NC Wedding Photographers
Ashanti & Barrie's wedding was not the normal traditional wedding! They chose to get married before the actual "wedding" and made their announcement is such a unique way! Ashanti made her way down the aisle with her dear mother to meet the college love of her life at the "altar". We were then entertained by a beautifully made video of them and then the big announcement at the the end, that they were married leaving everyone surprised and joyful! Here is Ashanti's words describing her inspiration, "My inspiration was a mix of our upbringing. He is West Indian so there’s a lot of Caribbean music and culture and well as southern belle for me. We like to party so it will go from classy to “turn up” really quick." Ashanti chose the colors Mauve and champagne for her decorations complimented by the bridal party wearing burgundy which was the perfect combo. Also the bride's maids bouquets was the perfect unique touch of glam to clomint Ashanti's bouquet!
The rest of their day carried on with some of the best caribbean food by Cajun Yard Dog and dancing. We left the night with a dreamy sparkler exit. I asked this beautiful bride what would be some advice she would lend to other couples planning their wedding:
"Make the wedding be a reflection of you two. It should be as if you cut on the music and no one else is in the room but you two, because you two make the relationship. So make it great!"
I am so honored I got to share this day with these two. They are most definitely the sweetest power couple and I wish nothing but the best for their adventure together!
