Mr. and Mrs. Dewberry (13 years)


Here we are, on earth, together
It's you and I, God has made us
Fall in love, it's true
I've really found someone like you


Clay and Jackie often seen each other on campus but never really had a conversation. One faithful evening they ended up at a mutual friend's dorm room. The topic of discussions was relationships. After much debate, with Jackie not saying much, Clay blurted out "I like you, do you want to go out?" Stunned and shocked, Jackie did not answer. Later that evening, Jackie pulled Clay to the side and finally answered his question-"YES"!

Ashton Loves Kenyetta

"My heart stops when you look at me."

Ashton and Kenyetta were married on September 29, 2018 amongst family and friends. My favorite part of the ceremony was when Ashton and Kenyetta said their vows to their children, sweetly professing their unconditional love to them. The love was definitely felt throughout the church. The Bride chose rose and gold for her reception colors and they turned out beautifully.

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!




Congratulations on your engagement!! Now regain your composure and call your parents. Tell them the good news first. Then send a mass text to all of your family and friends!! The 'proper' way would be to hold an engagement party and formally announce your engagement, but let's face it...technology has changed all of the rules! So here's an idea....tell your friends and THEN have an engagement party and 'formally' announce your engagement!!

I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner (hint...hint) to help you with the logistics (date, location, theme, budget, style, etc.) of your wedding.

As your Bridal consultant I will guide you through every minor and major detail of your wedding day. Once you, your fiancé, and I have discussed the logistics of your wedding, both of you can sit back and relax knowing that your wedding day will be in the hands of a professional. 
On the day of your wedding, I will get you and your future spou…
