Kristin & Mensah decided to go with the theme of the Spring Equinox for their Wedding Day. You can see that reflected in their color choices and gorgeous floral arrangements which consisted of green foliage and white florals. When planning their actual ceremony, Kristin & Mensah wanted to really personalize their day and make sure that all of their choices represented themselves as people and as a couple. It was very important to create a community-centered spirit which was accomplished through their prayer/libation & the community support vow. It is an African and African American cultural tradition of engaging a lead speaker and an audience in a dialogue that unites the voices of all involved in an uplifting way. After reciting their own vows to one another, the ceremony concluded with the couple jumping over a broom. This was an African American tradition dating to when enslaved Africans were not allowed to legally marry, which signified sweeping away the old and welcoming the new as a symbol of new beginnings. Overall it was a beautiful Wedding and I was grateful to be a part of their special day.
