On Saturday, August 16, 2008, Babatunde & Ashante exchanged their wedding vows in the lovely Meridian Hill Park within Downtown DC at 6:00 PM with the beautiful water fountain as their backdrop and natures ambiance as their audience. Their wedding was filled with beautiful, vibrant colors! The bride shocked everyone with her stunning red gown.

Although it didn’t start on time, Unforgettably Yours was able to maximize the moment and get the large wedding party down the aisle. Yep, there were 4 honorary bridesmaids & 4 honorary groomsmen, 7 bridesmaids & groomsmen each, 3 Matron/Maid of Honor & Best Men each, 2 flower girls, 2 ring bearers. If you lost count, that is a total of 32 members of the bridal party not including the parents, aunt & uncle and honorary guest that walk down the aisle before the bridal party. We also had a few host and hostesses, of course, to hand out the programs and assist the guests to their seats! Each member of the bridal party wore a different color representing the warm earthy tones found in nature. With all hands on deck, Unforgettably Yours Event Planning Service didn’t miss a beat when it came to organizing the large bridal party fit for Adam & Eve.

After the beautiful ceremony, the party took magnificent photos. Of course, they were outside with the statues, the large overflowing water fountain in the center of the park, and beautiful trees served as the backdrop. Before long, the whole party crossed the street to meet the 300+ guests for the rest of the cocktail hour. But not before the Bride & Groom had their first dance outside on the courtyard of the “?”. Next, everyone was lead upstairs to finish off the night with a buffet style dinner and dancing overlooking the terrace. The night wasn’t complete without the bride & groom changing into their traditional African garments after the garter & bouquet toss!! The garments representing the Grooms Nigerian heritage were a big hit, even the children of the bride & groom strut their stuff down the staircase to show off their new looks.

The party lasted well into the night. The guests were having a great time and most importantly, the bride and groom were happy that Unforgettably Yours Event Planning Service was there to pull it all off!!!
