Romantically themed “The Wedding” saved the date collateral mimicking a motion picture release and tailored made invitations resembling box office tickets celebrating the couple’s bi-coastal romance were mailed months in advance in anticipation of the joyous occasion. The cinematic theme was brought to life as worship singers, a praise dance performance, spoken word presentation and a film short highlighting Edwina and Kelvin’s inspirational love story preceded the grand entrance of the bride who wore a beaded mermaid gown by Allure Couture with accessories and shoes by Badgley Mischka. The groom received his lovely bride in a slate gray Calvin Klein tuxedo. Joined together by Dr. A.R. Bernard of Christian Cultural Center in Brooklyn, one of the highlight of the spiritually uplifting ceremony was a solo performance by Edwina’s mom Rose West who serenaded the couple who met in church with a moving rendition of “In This Very Room” – a fitting tune for highlighting the couple’s spiritual journey.
An exclusive red carpet procession at TAJ in Manhattan followed the ceremony where guest posed before a step and repeat banner emblazed with the couples image.
