The day is finally here!
Tomorrow, Feb. 14th, Valentine’s Day, the NBC wedding series called “Going to the Chapel” on My Carolina Today show will finally be airing Yasmin’s and Darrell’s wedding at 11:00-12:00 a.m. on channel 17. I can’t wait to see the show and I’m as anxious as everyone else to see what NBC has filmed of their wedding that took place on January 15th at The Grand Marquise.
On the morning of the wedding, Yasmin had Images by Denise a professional makeup artist assist her with her makeup. After dressing, Yasmin and her bridal party went to the church to wait for the ceremony to begin.
It was 2:00 p.m. that January day and the guest were seated as the bridal party slowly walked down the church aisle and took their places. All eyes were on Yasmin as she was escorted down the aisle by her Father looking radiated in her ivory flowing gown and long sweeping veil from Victoria Rose. With tears of joy in her eyes and full of happiness, Darrell and Yasmin finally tied the knot to become Man and Wife. Mike Bayley Photography was in charge of capturing their special moments of the day and as they left, a rose petal send-off was given to the pair as they headed to the reception in their limo.
As the guest arrived at The Grand Marquise, they were welcome with a heart shaped ice sculpture with the couple’s name and monogram etched in the ice by Ice Occasion. In the grand foyer, guest were treated with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while listening to James Brown, a jazz saxophone player and had some fun with pictures from Shutterbooth.
The ballroom was stunning with their fuchsia and chocolate brown color scheme with just a little touch of yellow for a surprise. The ambiance was warm and romantic made gorgeous with flowers and candles that filled the tables and stairs by Fresh Affairs. The dance floor was lit by their monogram for dancing and the rentals of linens along with interesting shaped dish ware were provided by Party Reflections Rental.
The food was not only delicious but a work of art from Catering Works and Sweet Memories provided the sumptuous cake that was stacked high as a center piece for all to admire. Sugarland provided a special snack with Gelato ice for all that danced the night away while listening to the tunes of the DJ and the band. A little touch of sweetness was given throughout the night with a candy bar of Yasmin’s and Darrell’s “favorite candy”.
As the night came to the end, Yasmin changed into a little white dress for the last dance and for their final good byes. It was a cold night and so their guest enjoyed their parting gift of a hot chocolate favor and watched as Yasmin and Darrell drove away tried but happy.
It was a beautiful, successful wedding story making lastly memories for Yasmin, Darrell, and their families for many years to come. I too, wish them the very best as they begin their new chapter of life together.
