The inspiration...

"We aimed to create a style that was exquisite and contemporary. We wanted to dispel stereotypes and to showcase that there is beauty in black relationships, We are not bounded by the traditional style of a Euro-centric culture whereby we are led to believe that weddings must consist of “White dresses and dark suits.” For this styled shoot, we threw caution to the wind and embraced Afro-centric colors and styles. Further, the rich color palettes we decided on were to frame and shape a legacy for our younger generation and to help them understand that there is beauty in love. As we created our story for this shoot, we decided to incorporate the whimsical colors of yellow, green and purple to bring the vision to life. The colors fit perfectly into our theme for a Garden Destination Wedding." - Galeria Events
