Tie the Knot Tuesday Flashback – Kesha and Steven

Kesha and Steven: Easy Elegance in Marlaynd!

Kesha and Steven: Easy Elegance in Maryland!

One of the things we enjoy about weddings here at Black Bridal Bliss is that although there are many similarities in each, every single one is distinctive. Take the nuptials of Kesha and Steven of Maryland, for instance (we initially featured them in Tie the Knot Tuesday last year). While their wedding on the surface seemed classic and pretty traditional, it in fact was injected with several unique touches such as liturgical dancers during the ceremony and a surprise Latin-inspired first dance that even their wedding party didn’t know about! The best part? Their touching and relatable love story. Check it out:

Tie the Knot Tuesday Flashback – Akida + Ken

2011 FLASHBACK: The Neelys said "I Do" in the "City of Brotherly Love"!

2011 FLASHBACK: The Neelys said “I Do” in the “City of Brotherly Love”!

This feature is extra-special for Triple B (well, every Tie the Knot Tuesday wedding is but…) because of the sense of community it displays. Bride Akida was honest about not having an active relationship with her biological father and therefore opted to be escorted down the aisle by her longtime swim coach and mentor, Jim Ellis. “I attended college on a swim scholarship largely because of him,” she shared. Ellis is the same swim coach that the film Pride was based on (actor Terrance Howard played him in the movie). It takes a village. Remember, Triple is is bigger than weddings. Enjoy today’s  [Read more…]

Tie the Knot Tuesday Celebrity Special – Miranda Brooke + AJ Green

Mr. & Mrs. AJ Green taking in all the bliss!

Mr. & Mrs. AJ Green taking in all their bliss!

Confession: Before this morning I had no idea who singer Miranda Brooke or Cincinnati Bengals NFL player AJ Green were. But the twosome tied the knot on March 21st in a lavish Atlanta wedding complete with several dress changes, plenty of bridesmaids and groomsmen, a six layer cake, specially choreographed dances at the reception and enough crystals for an Elton John world tour. Yet, judging from the pics and videos flooding the net of this affair online, the nuptials of Miranda and AJ weren’t pretentious and gaudy — just a hearty celebration of two people in love who decided to spend the rest of their lives together and wanted to make the most of the monumental occasion their way.

The 24 year-old songstress and 26 year-old jock met on Facebook in 2010. The pair said “I Do” at ATL’s famed 200 Peachtree venue. Their first dance was to John Legend’s So High and the bride’s father even broke out a fresh pair of Jordans to cut a rug with his daughter during the winter wonderland-themed affair.

Take a look at the fun pics and video to judge for yourself. In the meantime, Triple B is sending a heartfelt congratulations to the newlyweds for a healthy and happy marriage! [Read more…]
