A Boogie with the Hoodie is one of hip hop’s new artists to watch. With two platinum tracks and a spot on XXL Magazine’s Freshman Class list, he is a rising star in the industry. But on a chilly January day in Manhattan, Boogie’s highest honor was being recognized as Dad-To-Be. He and girlfriend Ella celebrated their daughter’s arrival with a winter wonderland shower that included several nods to dad’s skyrocketing career; starting with the new baby’s name, Melody. Boogie also took the stage during the shower to perform. “The most unique aspect of A Boogie and Ella’s shower is that he performed his latest song so we made sure he had a stage,” the team from Primrose Couture Events said. To help create the winter wonderland the Primrose team took inspiration from textures and colors of fabrics found at Mood. Soft pinks and silvers with hints of purple to accent were used as a color palette. The accent seen in both mom’s fierce hair highlights and in the uplighting, something the Primrose team believes can change the overall visual success of any event. “The event space was pretty dark! We always advise everyone to choose lighting. Lighting can change the look of any venue,” the team said. Along with the soft color palette, the design team incorporated over the top snowflakes that were seen on guest’s custom bottle favors and on the top of two, three-tier cakes. Ella requested the winter wonderland theme and asked that the entire event be simple yet elegant. A party to welcome a new princess of hip-hop in a unique style.
Jacinta and Leslie met on one fateful September evening. She was on one side of the street and he was on another. Jacinta called out to Leslie, which prompted him to come over to meet her. They started talking, exchanged information, and that was the beginning of their forever. Leslie moved out of town for work, but they stayed in touch, and when he came back they picked up as though he had never left, and soon they were planning their special day. The couple hired ellyB Events to help them with the planning of their Atlanta, GA wedding while the couple was located in DC. Their wedding style was all about class and elegance. The ceremony and reception took place at Agnes Scott College, a breathtaking and historic venue with unique architecture and design that helped set the mood for the event. Details such as the gorgeous floral centerpieces complete with lush roses, golden accents on the table decor and design, a 6-tier gold and white elegant cake by Cakes by LaMeeka, candles, and of course the perfect mood lighting to accent the evening all helped create the elegant ambiance. Jacinta’s bridal gown was a an ivory/nude Justin Alexander Lace Mermaid Gown with Tulle Handkerchief Skirt. Her reception gown was gold with sequin embellishments to match her wedding colors. The couple honeymooned in Montego Bay, Jamaica where they enjoyed the sun, sand, and fun. Jacinta’s advice to brides is, “Enjoy the wedding planning process! Yes, the planning will inevitably get crazy and you may suffer from one or several mental breakdowns but just remember the real reason why you are doing this, and that is to marry the love of your life.”
