She graciously agreed to share her journey to finding her dream wedding dress from Martin Thornburg and the magical moments of her special day.

The Perfect Dress from Bellisima Bridal Salon

Kenyatta's wedding dress journey started at Bellisima Bridal Salon in Rochester, MI, where she found her dream gown, Abelle #221205. With the expert assistance of Julie Nikolic and Ann for alterations and custom sleeves, Kenyatta's dress became an exquisite masterpiece, perfectly tailored to her vision. The combination of ivory/almond tones with cathedral veil and custom sleeves made her look absolutely stunning!




A Wedding Day to Remember



Kenyatta's wedding day was a vision of romance and elegance. With a color palette of navy, burgundy, blush pink, and rose gold metallic, complemented by fresh roses and eucalyptus, every detail exuded sophistication. The romantic theme set the stage for a day filled with love, laughter, and cherished memories.



A Love Story Written by Fate


Kenyatta and her beloved share a love story that spans decades. They first met during 8th grade, seated next to each other in science class. Despite the teasing from friends (always being referred to as “Mr. and Mrs. Jones”), their connection grew over the years, eventually blossoming into a deep friendship. Their journey led them back to each other after high school, and on New Year's Day, their friendship turned into a beautiful courtship. With faith as their foundation, they embarked on a journey guided by love, culminating in a heartfelt proposal that brought tears of joy.

Choosing the Perfect Venue

Meadow Brook Hall stole Kenyatta's heart during their engagement photo shoot, making it the perfect choice for their wedding day. The venue's timeless beauty and picturesque surroundings provided the ideal backdrop for their love-filled celebration.




Saying "Yes" to the Dress


Kenyatta's "yes" moment came when she laid eyes on the Abelle gown. After researching online and finally trying it on at Bellisima Bridal, she knew it was the one. The tears she shed were a testament to the dress's perfection and how it captured her heart.



Cherished Moments

Walking down the aisle to marry her best friend was Kenyatta's favorite moment of the day. The love and joy she felt in that moment were simply indescribable, marking the beginning of a beautiful journey as husband and wife.


First Dance to "All of Me"

For their first dance, Kenyatta and her beloved chose John Legend's "All of Me." The heartfelt lyrics mirrored their journey and spoke volumes about their love for each other, making it the perfect choice for their special moment.



Advice for Future Brides

Kenyatta's advice for future brides is simple yet profound: cherish every moment of your wedding day with the love of your life. Let the joy and love surround you, making memories that will last a lifetime.

Thank you, Kenyatta, for sharing your beautiful love story and wedding day with us! Your journey is a reminder that true love knows no bounds and that every moment spent with the one you love is precious beyond measure.
