From the very start, Candace had a strong vision of what she wanted her wedding to be. She knew she wanted the color scheme to be brown and creme accented by gold, to give their wedding a soft and elegant vibe. She made bold choices in accessories, which complimented the soft ruffles of her Rivini gown perfectly. To help her vision come to life, Candace kept it in the family and enlisted the expertise of her mother who is an experience wedding coordinator. Candace and Kadarryl exchanged their vows at the Cahaba Grand Conference Center on a lovely day in June and elle Danielle Photography was there to capture all of the unique and beautiful details of their wedding.

I’ve always known exactly how I wanted my wedding to be. The colors were already in place so all there was left to do was plan. My mom does coordinating for weddings so you can just imagine the fun we had planning my own. The only challenge was getting my husband to accept the fact that no RED was going to be incorporated. Red is a part of his fraternity colors, Kappa Alpha Psi. But after he accepted that everything went well and as planned.
Shopping for my wedding gown went by faster than I thought it would. I only went to two stores. The second store I went to which was Carriage House Weddings was where I found her. Her name is Wendy and her designer is Rivini. She was hanging up in the window and right when I saw her I knew she was the one for me. It was love at first sight. I didn’t care what the price was, all I knew was that she had to be mine!!!
