Ashley and Matt’s beautiful summer wedding took place at Baker Buffalo Vineyards under sunny skies and surrounded by family and friends. Ashley and Matt dated for over 10 years before saying I-do as husband and wife. Most of the details and all of the guest gifts were hand-made by Ashley.
Every wedding is different. Each one has its own life – its own rhythm. We have been involved in so many beautiful unions and are blessed by every one of them. That did not end with Sile and Thierry – as a matter of fact – the rhythm of this wedding was one that made everyone dance…
Sile and Thierry, originally from Togo, West Africa, had many friends and family travel from Africa, France, and other locations around the United States to Charlotte, NC to see them wed. This was a momentous occasion simply because of the love and devotion that Sile and Thierry have for one another. The ceremony was a beautiful, traditional Catholic wedding. With one small tear in the eye of Sile’s brother, he proudly walked her down the aisle. When Thierry saw his beautiful bride he lifted his hands and smiled and once she arrived he wiped the tears from his new brother-in-law’s face. These loving gestures were ones that continued throughout the wedding and the reception among everyone.
The reception was amazing. Tenesha with Roshel Events designed and planned every piece of the day and it showed. The atmosphere was light and happy. The music played was a mix of African, French, and American. Everyone joined on the dance floor – yes even us – to celebrate. We witnessed traditional African dances to Salsa! The children laughed and played. Everyone had so much respect for everyone else and did nothing but wish Sile and Thierry a long and happy life together.
So we too wish Sile and Thierry a wonderful, long, happy and rhythmic life together. We also thank Sile and Thierry, and all of their family and friends for allowing us to be a part of the dance!
