BLAC celebrates love.

Kimberly is president and CEO of Developing K.I.D.S. and the network and operations manager for Youth Development Resource Center, both in Detroit.

Here, Kimberly shares details from their wedding day.

 

Date: Aug. 11, 2017

Ceremony and Reception: Regency Manor & Banquet Center in Southfield

First dance: "Forever More" by Anthony David featuring Algebra and Phonte

Photographer: The Pros Weddings

 

THE DRESS

"After visiting several different places, I was frustrated because I thought I'd never find what I was looking for. But I eventually found this beautiful ivory, strapless trumpet-style gown from My Dream Dress Bridal Salon in Southfield. It was dripping in crystals and beading, and my veil was also trimmed in crystals."

THE CENTERPIECES

"Our centerpieces consisted of three-piece candle sets including floating candles in colored water, high-standing vases with beads and low-sitting arrangements of silk flowers."

THE FAVORS

"Friends and family took home antique key-shaped bottles openers decorated with tassels. We set them in a ribbon-wrapped brown gift box to complement our color scheme."

MOST MEMORABLE MOMENTS

"After I walked down the aisle, Charles met me at the altar and sang 'Never Felt This Way' by Brian McKnight. The sand-pouring ceremony uniting our family was definitely another highlight;
I have three children from a previous marriage. Our pastor spoke words of unity as 'The Prayer of Jabez' played."
