When I first met Aisha I had no idea that she could dance. And I mean actually dance! Underneath her sweet personality this girl had some serious moves. She mentioned that her and Kiwi’s first dance was going to be choreographed but what she failed to tell me was this it was going to be an epic routine combining all of the parent dances into one fluid and totally awesome routine.
Aisha and Kowin met in high school. Their lives took them on very different paths but as life does it steered them back together. They reconnected but in order for things to move forward Kowin had to call Aisha’s parents for her phone number. Luckily they didn’t mind and these two are the perfect partners. In life and on the dance floor. Enjoy!
From my bride Aisha:
Favorite Moment of the Day: There were so many, it is hard to choose but in my top favs are: Looking out during the ceremony and seeing all of our family& friends present, the Bridal Party Grand Entrance and First Dances at the reception, and the Toasts!
Inspiration for the wedding: Classic, Romantic, Old Hollywood
Advice to brides planning in the future: My best friend gave me this advice: Expect at least 3 things to go not as expected on your wedding day no matter how diligently you have been with planning. Let it go. Laugh it off. Stay present. The day goes by so fast, cherish every moment instead of dwelling on what wasn’t.
A huge thank you to Sara Cantrell for being my right hand girl (aka second photographer) at this awesome wedding.
