There’s something so beautiful about each wedding set against a mountain backdrop. Utah native Tyler Rye Photography captured Raynesha and Dominic’s beautiful day, and he documented all of the impressive decor by Forevermore Events and beautiful moments, even when the rain started pouring. With a strong desire to incorporate their African heritage throughout their wedding, bloomers flower & decor took cues from Raynesha and Dominic to use South Africa’s national flower and the latest hot bloom, king protea, in their arrangements. We could go on all day about this beautiful wedding but the pictures speak better for themselves.
From the bride, Raynesha: I wanted to be on top of world when I said forever. I wanted to capture the love and the way my husband looked at me in total admiration. I always wanted to get married in the mountains or somewhere outdoors because there is something so magical about nature. I envisioned a little bit of everything. I wanted touches of rich colors and gold to give a regal feel. I wanted to bring a small touch of African symbolism to celebrate our heritage. Our colors were blush, wine, and gold. Our theme was rustic elegance with a touch of African inspiration. My husband got crafty and decorated the broom we jumped over to commemorate an African-American tradition. He used burlap fabric from Michael’s which was wrapped at various stages up the handle with burgundy and gold ribbons from Ace Hardware using a hot glue gun and gold craft wire. Instead of pouring sand for unity, we used dirt from our childhood homes to join together and we plan on using that dirt to plant a tree at our first home.
