Vanessa and Raquese’s love for each other has always been bold, even as teenagers.
Thirteen years later, their youthful love has grown into a lovely family of four, and Vanessa and Raquese decided it was time to celebrate their love and dedication by exchanging wedding vows at the Bellevue Conference and Event Center in Ashburn, Virginia. A love like theirs that has withstood the tests of time deserved nothing less than a grand celebration.
This was most definitely a wedding for the fashion forward! The bride’s Justin Alexander wedding dress was a showstopper and the groom was dapper in his red and black tuxedo from Stan Lion Clothing.
The bridesmaid were hot in their red bridesmaids dresses, and we cannot ignore how sharp the wedding guests looked in their elegant all-black attire.
As wedding planners who love color, we were excited that they chose bold, gorgeous details for their wedding. There were thousands of vivid crimson and cherry red roses, peonies, carnations and orchids. But, you have to admit that the stunning sweetheart table was the star of their luxurious dinner reception.
Everyone danced the night away to lively music provided by two deejays, one honoring Vanessa’s El Salvadoran ancestry and the other Raquese’s African American culture.
This celebration was everything the couple could have wanted – and so much more. Are you interested in more fun details? Check out their wedding day feature on MunaLuchi Bridal Magazine.
Love and Soul Always, Kawania
