The couple wanted a wedding that displayed an African flair while exhibiting a sense of classic elegance. Their goal was simple, incorporate details that gave a nod to culture and blend it with our New Jersey roots by hosting it in our hometown among our closest family and friends.

In honor of tradition we took part in a “Tasting of the Elements” ceremony to demonstrate a commitment to remaining together no matter what life may bring. In leiu of “tying the knot” our wrists were tied together with Kente cloth to express our unity and total commitment to each other.

Charney also adds, “Our wedding day was filled with so many memorable moments that we will cherish forever. Looking back, what made our wedding extra special was Rasheem’s grandmother, who was battling cancer, got to see her grandson get married before passing away three weeks later.”
