Wedded Bliss: Lauren Allah and Domanic Wilson

BLAC celebrates love.

Lauren is a Realtor at Luxury Home Enterprise in Detroit, and Domanic is a real estate investor and contractor for DV Construction in Detroit. The couple also live in Detroit and honeymooned in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. Here, Lauren dishes on the details of their fantastical wedding day.


Date: May 26, 2018

Ceremony and reception: The Whittier in Detroit

First dance: "So High" by John Legend

Photographer: Bre'Ann White


The Venue

"The Whittier's winter garden provided the perfect character, charm and touches of elegance that were fitting for our fairy tale wedding. For the reception, we moved over to the ballroom, which was a blank canvas that allowed us to create the unique day of our dreams."

The Dress

"Lace, beaded embroidery and hand-sewn crystals detailed my custom two-piece gown designed by Ysa Makino, which featured an A-line dress and an overskirt that attached with a beaded belt."

The Cake

"Our seven-tier royal cake was crafted by Angel's Cakes in Macomb. It was hand-painted with gold and covered in handmade sugar flowers with lace detailing. The taste was just as luxurious, featuring chocolate and white cake with chocolate mousse and Angel's famous cream cake with fresh strawberries."

The Food

"Jackson's Five Star Catering based in Ferndale provided the plated dinner, which started with a pecan salad with raspberry dressing and fresh rolls with butter. For the main course, we enjoyed oven-roasted chicken with southern herbs and spices, baby redskin potatoes and roasted garlic green beans."

The Entertainment

"Hot 107.5 and Kiss 105.9's DJ Steady Rock kept us moving all night."

Most Memorable Moment

"During our first dance, smoke engulfed the floor and our entire wedding party stood in front of us with sparklers. It was the most magical feeling in the world!"
