Grew Closer: Kisha & Desmond Get Married
I personally feel that when you have purple in your decor, it has to be the right shade, it has to be used in a monochromatic design, and it has to be well lighted. This wedding does just that.
I also love Kisha’s shoes. Perhaps one of my favorite images is Desmond completely overwhelmed by seeing Kisha and welling up with tears. It is just so amazing to see the love between them. Kisha and Desmond seem like such a fun couple and like they are having such a great time and I think Anna and Spencer’s photography successfully captures the cool vibe that they so intently desired.
Kisha Turner and Desmond Carter
Married in Atlanta, Georgia on August 28, 2010
Kisha Turner and Desmond Carter met at a summer job in Atlanta, Georgia back in 2001. They went on their first date over their college winter break, and although they were in two separate cities, Kisha and Desmond grew closer throughout college. After settling into their professional careers, Desmond proposed to Kisha on New Year’s Day in 2010 while visiting Château Élan in Braselton, just outside of Atlanta.
Inspiration can come from many places. For this wedding, their inspiration came from the most unusual of places: the inside lining of Kisha’s favorite handbag. From this rich shade of eggplant, they started to build the look of their wedding. While they wanted to pay great respect to tradition, they also wanted to show their “cool side.”
“We kept the ceremony traditional with modern touches by using the columns down the aisle with florals and candlelight,” says Kisha, pointing out their addition of a swirled, petal-lined aisle. For the reception they opted for round and square tables featuring three different floral designs, brought in lounge furniture to reinforce their cool vibe, and, of course, added dramatic lighting.
