Myaa and John's Cardinal Room Wedding Photos Are Here! Check Them Out!

Rocking-Red Myaa and John's Wedding Love is in the details and this wedding had a ton! Not only were Myaa and John such a fun couple to work with, they also wanted the wedding to stay true to their personalities. Myaa is African American and John is Vietnamese.


Four words they described for their wedding day were fun, blended, family-oriented and unique! Some notable details from the wedding were their love of Maryland (check out the groomsmen fun Maryland flag socks), relaxed style (groom and groomsmen wore Vans shoes), to the bridal and bridesmaid paper bouquets! The selected color palette was red, black & white. It was the perfect fit for this beautifully blended new family. This day was a blast to coordinate with the assistance of Favored team, Carol, Helen & LaToya! Big thank you to all the great vendors we worked with for Myaa & John's Wedding!

Real Wedding: Sean + Jenae's Liriodendr​on Mansion Wedding

0771 Sean Kingston Holcomb-Jones married the love of his life Jenae' Elizabeth Manns on July 5, 2013 at the Liriodendron Mansion located in Bel Air, Maryland. The vision of the wedding was to maintain Jenae and Sean's authentic identity of creativity, be classic, and ensure their guest didn't just witness a wedding, but had a meaningful experience. Meet the couple and see more pictures of their big day after the break.



The first thing Jenae' set her sights on was spiral seating. She felt that circles feel much warmer than rigid rows, so when it came to seating, the spiral did the trick of wrapping Sean and Jenae' in a circle of Love of their family and friends. As an added bonus, it ensured that everyone got a good clear view of the wedding party as they came down the aisle.

Jenae has never been a flowery kind of girl so she decided not to carry a flowers. Instead she decided to decorate her arm with a larger than life bouquet of flowers going up the arm. On the wedding day everyone loved it!! The look was superb!

Adding to the creative theme, after the ceremony, fun lawn games like Tumble Tower (life sized Jenga), corn hole, and photo stands were available for the guest to enjoy during cocktail hour.


Instead of a traditional first dance song, Sean and Jenae' chose to dance to Neyo's Sexy Love, which was and always will be the couples song.

To offset some of the more costly wedding expenses, Andrea Small of Asburn, Va, who is a close friend of the Bride, served as the weddings creative designer and did all the wedding decor as DIY projects.


The outdoor/indoor wedding went off without a hitch and a great time was had by all. "Sean and I have never been a public-public couple so we really wanted our wedding to reflect who we were as people. My advice to any couples planning is to stay true to your authentic self -- break all the rules -- enlist the help of friends to cut cost -- and have lots of FUN!!" - Jenae
