Lara and Josh’s eclectic multicultural wedding took place at Fisk University, with the reception immediately following at Marathon Village in the fun and sophisticated city of Nashville, TN. Blending the traditional and nontraditional, the gorgeous couple had a ceremony they’d love to relive over and over again.

Tell us about how you met and all about the proposal!

Josh and I met through a mutual friend that happened to be my best friend and someone Josh grew up up with. I know it sounds cliché, but it was love at first sight. Nicole, my best friend, hadn't seen Josh in a couple of years and wasn't sure if it was him that she saw in Downtown Nashville, so she sent me over to see if it was him and it was. I never went back over to her because Josh and I started a conversation and didn’t stop. After a couple months of playing hard to get, I finally gave into the persistent pursuit of him asking me out on a date. I never looked back since. You can watch our proposal video here.

Honestly, I wasn't too excited at first to go wedding shopping. On top of everything else that is involved with wedding planning, it made me feel overwhelmed. Looking through magazines, there are so many choices! I knew I wanted something untraditional, something different, and definitely something comfortable. I decided to go to a local wedding dress shop called The Dress Theory and fell in love with every gown in there. They were so beautiful and the staff made me feel comfortable with their one on one attention. After looking through the dresses, I knew I found the one. Theia's "Elsa" gown made me feel sexy, confident, elegant, and comfortable all in one. And to top it off, it's a convertible dress!

Reymarkable-Palcon-Photography-TN-Lara-Josh-8Reymarkable-Palcon-Photography-TN-Lara-Josh-9Reymarkable-Palcon-Photography-TN-Lara-Josh-10Culture

For a symbol of unity, Josh and I decided to jump the broom.

Memories

There isn't a day that goes by that I wish it was our wedding day again. Josh and I wanted to see each other before we walked down the aisle. We are each other's best friend, and there was no way we could go all morning without seeing each other. I will never forget the moment he turned around and saw me as his bride.

Reymarkable-Palcon-Photography-TN-Lara-Josh-11Reymarkable-Palcon-Photography-TN-Lara-Josh-12Help a bride-to-be out!

Don't do anything just to please others! This is your day and in my book, you only get one so do what makes you and your husband happy.

And it took place on May 1, 2015, at the historic South Street Seaport, the place where Carline Bernard and Donald Thompson had their first date. They did not have a theme in mind for their engagement session. They just wanted to enjoy the moment and be natural. On their first date they ate dinner overlooking the water and then afterwards walked around the Seaport until the sun went down. It was truly a romantic experience for them and what better way than to revisit the moment that they were going to start their beautiful journey as an newly engaged couple.

How They Met And The Proposal

It was through childhood best friends that introduced Carline and Donald back in May of 2011. "He took the first step by sending me a Facebook message and we exchanged numbers that night.", says Carline. "Our friends knew that we had a lot in common and they were 100% right. We realized right away that we have the same goals and aspirations for the future and a strong family foundation. We are different in some ways, but we are the same in everything that matters the most to us. The first night we talked on the phone for hours and we have talked every day since then."

Joshua Dwain Photo caroline and don10

Now the proposal was stellar! Three years years later after they met Donald organized a brunch-day party for Carline's birthday with friends and family. Plus he had the whole proposal caught on tape! Carline's face was priceless and her eyes filled with tears as she laid eyes as she ecstatically hugged her fiance. "Donald whispered in my ear that all he wants is for me to be happy and then got on one knee and proposed. It was a complete surprise for me and everyone in attendance. In an instant, my birthday brunch turned into an engagement party and my boyfriend turned into my Fiancé!"

What's your favorite thing to do as a couple?

"Our favorite thing to do as a couple is sit on the couch and watch Netflix. Both of our jobs are very demanding of our time and energy so it’s a treat to be able to just relax together and do nothing. When we aren’t being couch potatoes, we love to try new things together – whether it’s traveling to a country/city we haven’t been to before or indulging in a new local restaurant."

Awaiting the Wedding Day...

"The wedding planning has been smooth so far. We vowed to each other that we would make sure this wouldn’t be a stressful process. Instead, we are making this process about making decisions together and planning for our marriage. We don’t want to lose sight of what’s important."

"We are looking forward to starting our lives as husband and wife and having all of our loved ones all together in one room celebrating our love!"

Their romantic night at the NY seaport engagement session was absolutely beautiful. The photos displayed their natural and effortless love for one another.  We are excited for their upcoming wedding next year April 29, 2016! It will take place in Roslyn Heights, NY and we eagerly anticipate their future wedding photos!

You can never truly be happy in a relationship until you are complete and satisfied with yourself. The time when you are single is the best time explore new things, travel, take on risks, and be independent. However sometimes we can get caught up living for ourselves, and forget that we can share it with someone special. For Caroline a protective wall was built up during her single years. She had to learn that it was okay for someone to come in and join in the amazing life she had formed for herself. Vulnerability can be an intimidating emotion but when you found someone who is receptive and willing to help you express that emotion, that is a keeper. Caroline found the man of her dreams the minute she let her guard down. She found the love she was looking for in Afolabi and he was there with her every step of the way. He knew she was the one and that his late mother would be proud that he chose a beautiful person inside and out.

Quick Wedding Details:

Name of Bride/Bride-to-be: Caroline Baker
Name of Groom/Groom-to-be: Afolabi Dokun
Wedding Date: 10/11/2014
Wedding Location: Atlanta, GA

Tell us about how you met and all about the proposal!:
"Afolabi and I met 5 years ago, after I graduated from business school. I had just moved from Boston to Chicago and a mutual friend of ours invited me to a wine tasting where he wanted to introduce me to his Chicago network. When I arrived at the wine tasting, I didn't know anyone except the person who invited me. He promptly introduced me to Afolabi, then disappeared. Even though Afolabi knew a few people there, he kept me company the whole night. We did the tasting together, getting to know each other and joking about the experience along the way. When we were done, he asked me to join him for dinner. We've been together ever since!

"After a few years of dating, we decided to buy a condo together. We spent a couple of months renovating it and were finally ready to move in by December. On move-in day, he suggested we go to dinner to celebrate (which is something I would typically plan to do). I started to suspect that he might propose, but we went to dinner and drove around the city talking about our dreams and goals in life and as a couple, and no proposal came. When we got home, he mentioned that he never told me what he was grateful for in 2013. He gave me a rock where he had written "Finding my one, the bone of my bone." Next thing I knew, he had was down on one knee. We spent our first day in our new home as an engaged couple. I couldn't have asked for a better proposal."

Wedding Style:
"My dress was a sleeveless, trumpet dress. The rosettes at the bottom gave it the romantic and ethereal feel I was hoping for on my wedding day. I chose my dress with my mom, step-mom, and closest friends."

Favorite Item On Wedding Menu:
"The fried turkey tenders. People still talk about them! Instead of a cake we had an ice cream bar. We didn't get a chance to have the ice cream but I heard it was really good!"

First Dance Song:
John Legend - Stay with You

Memories:
"Saying our I Do's! At the end of our ceremony when we were saying our vows, the sun started to set and was shining directly on us. It felt like the heavens were opening up. My mom works at Clark Atlanta and was able to get the Clark Atlanta Philharmonic Choir to sing at our ceremony. They were absolutely amazing. For our recession, they sang Pharrell's "Happy". It was so fun to dance down the aisle to that song."

Help a bride-to-be out!:
"Have each other's backs. There are a lot of decisions that have to get made when planning a wedding, and a lot of people who have an opinion on how it should go. My husband and I always supported each others' wishes first and foremost, and were always united in our decisions. It was great practice for marriage."

It's no secret, we love a well-dressed man. From urban chic to sophisticated sleek, there's nothing more powerful than a man who has his finger on the pulse of the latest fashion trends. Today's stylish gent isn't afraid to take fashion risks and the timing couldn't be any better. Pastels have been a fixture in decor and women's fashion but we're absolutely swooning over the trend in menswear. The subtle hues are the perfect statement for wedding guests and even grooms. We've rounded up some of our favorite pastel pieces for our oh-so-stylish men. Take a look at what we've pulled and let us know if you'd try pastels on your MunaMan.
