Xavier Got The Kei!
Xavier and Keila are one amazing couple and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to document their wedding day! Both the bride and groom spent the morning getting ready at The Embassy Suites Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia. Keila and her bridesmaids enjoyed champagne, memories, and laughs in the cutest robes. The guys also had some bonding time and shared a toast before everyone left for the ceremony site. The ceremony and reception took place at the Durant Arts Center in Old Town Alexandria. It was a great space and a rather unique venue filled with some wonderful artwork. The bride and her aunt did an awesome job creating all the ceremony and reception decor themselves! It's amazing what you can do with a ton of wine bottles and some gold spray paint! After Keila and Xavier's beautiful ceremony, we took it to the streets for some photos. The bride found the cutest cobble stone street, and although it made a challenging time for walking in heels, it made for some amazing photographs! Florida Avenue Grill catered the reception, and you would have thought that grandma was in the kitchen! The food was delicious! There were heart warming toasts, a beautiful cake, a mother & son dance, and even a Delta Sigma Theta ritual for the bride. And finally the bride, the groom, and all of their guests turned up on the dance floor for the rest of the night thanks to DJ One Luv. I wish Keila and Xavier nothing but love and prosperity as they begin their new life together as husband and wife!
