Kimberly and Jasper's wedding is full of color, preppy style and tons of laughter. We love how they incorporated a Southern Old Hollywood feel with a New Orleans vibe. Enjoy these lovely photos by one of our favorite photographers, Rhphotoarts.

We met in freshman year in college at Xavier University...we were lab partners & didn't even like each other at first, but it grew into a friendship. We dated sophomore & junior years, but then broke up...almost 7 years later, Mardi gras happened & our worlds collided again...the rest is history...although we were long distance for almost 2 years until 5 months before our wedding when I moved to DC.
He proposed on a Sunday in April after he came in town to attend a friends wedding. It was during the Japanese festival at the park & even got an umbrella with my name in Japanese on it to remember the day. He knows I like surprises, so he had to come up with the most random time to do it!
The theme was focused on a Southern old Hollywood type of feel, but since we were getting married on Cinco De Mayo, we decided to incorporate that in as well. We had a New Orleans engagement party to pay homage to how we met & the reason we got back together, so with the wedding, we had a 2nd line dance at the end-which is a New Orleans tradition (with hand made decorated umbrellas--made by one of our groomsmen--Jason Spriggins). The food was cajun inspired & the dessert room included small desserts such as bourbon balls & Jack Daniels mini pies. We were able to incorporate the Cinco de Mayo part with a box of Mexican Wedding Cake Cookies (all hand made by one of my bridesmaids--Angelle Thomas) as the guests present, as well as with our toasts--you had the option of champagne or a Tequilla shots. New Orleans & Cinco de Mayo?! No way we could go without an open bar & signature drinks!
The most memorable part for me ( & I think it would be both of us) was our first dance...we wanted a party for the reception, so our first dance was a mix & allowed our bridesmaids & groomsmen to be apart of the moment.
You Make Loving You So Easy
He loves...My ambition & drive...always striving for more for the both of us.
She loves...His humor....he kept me from crying during our vows.
