In case you missed it, Yandy Smith and Mendeecees Harris of VH1’s hit show Love & Hip Hop tied the knot in a live ceremony on May 25, 2015! This Love & Hip Hop Wedding is perfect. Between the flawless $25,000 Pnina Tornai dress Yandy rocked and the star-studded guest list, we also made our way into the event. Shout out as well to Ayanna Stephens, their impeccable wedding coordinator, of Chasing Cayden Design & Event Agency for designing this Love & Hip Hop Wedding!
We were thrilled when they contacted us to help out with their decor, and even more excited to see our shout-outs! We’re happy to share some of the luxe items they purchased, and used in innovative ways, so you too can have your event looking like this elegant, and completely glamorous, wedding.
Our Ivory Leaf Petal Taffeta Round Tablecloth was a staple statement piece for the reception and really set the tone for the extremely classy, yet subtly bold, extravaganza. The Ivory Leaf Taffeta Tablecloth features a durable taffeta base and hand-sewn polyester/nylon leaves. They also purchased a Gold Leaf Petal Taffeta Tablecloth, which you can use as a photobooth background – so genius!
Another important detail of the event were the chair covers! Often overlooked for events, chair covers can really add personality and the extra excitement you’re looking for to make event decor feel complete. We happily set them up with our Ivory/Gold Vintage Veil Chiavari Chair Full Back Covers, which provided a vintage glam to be paired with the stunningly draped altar during the ceremony and the Leaf Petal tablecloths at the reception. This perfect, subtle pop of texture and intricate design really pulled the entire room together.
Lastly, don’t forget the little details! They were on-point for this Love & Hip Hop Wedding by picking our Ivory Lamour Satin Napkins to be held together with the Round Diamond Rhinestone Pin Sash Buckle. Take note of this for major napkin design inspiration – it’s such an elegant take on the traditional bow and we’re obsessed with it! Our Lamour Satin Napkins are durable and the perfect in-between if you’re stuck between the textures of satin and polyester; they’re the perfect mix of class and functionality. The Round Diamond Rhinestone Pin Sash Buckle, which features a double row of crystals, is extremely versatile and can be used multiple places throughout your event. Place this beauty on your bouquets, napkins, chair sashes, and other decor to really make the most of it!
