This whimsical African American wedding is everything you need to see this afternoon! Wanting an intimate, romantic, and classic wedding, Iman & Anthony chose the incredible BASH venue. Complete with stunning florals, a romantic candlelit reception, and plenty of greenery, this day just exudes elegance. We absolutely love how outrageously stylish Iman & Anthony both look (we are seriously feelin’ that blazer, Anthony!) We would also like to take a moment to appreciate the incredible frosted flowers on their wedding cake… please do ensure you check it out. 

African American wedding with elegant styling and show-stopping florals

As soon as I saw our venue, I was sure that was where we should get married. We didn't really have a theme, but knew we wanted it to be intimate, romantic, classic and full of greenery, florals and candles. Our florist really brought our vision to life with multiple show-stopping elements.

Our advice would be to stay true to the visions they have for their day. A wedding is a big ordeal for family and friends, but it is ultimately for the bride and groom. So, we’d tell them not to worry about the opinions of others & to make sure they are honouring their own wants and desires. Oh, and to invest in a wedding planner!


My first favourite moment was the décor and ambiance of the wedding. It was truly breathtaking. My second (and very close) favourite was just the party atmosphere. From start to finish, our DJ had the reception rockin’. He had our family and friends of all ages partying like it was pre-pandemic! 

A floral archway during wedding ceremony? Always a good idea. Always.

We had a 21+ wedding, which is uncommon, but was perfect for us. We wanted all of the guests to be able to be in the moment and enjoy the night to the fullest. Making it a child-free wedding really enabled it to be the biggest party. We also had a dress code for our guests, majority black semi-formal attire. Seeing how creative people were with their outfits for our special day was exciting as well.
