Introducing Diann Valentine Home to Munaluchi Brides!

When Jacqueine Nwobu and Munaluchi Bride came to LA as part of their national tour, I was honored to host the special soiree and lend my voice to support my dear friend along her journey. I have watched her build her magazine and brand over the years and nothing brings me more joy that watching it flourish. As I contemplated DVLW’s presence at her LA tour stop, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to introduce Diann Valentine Home to the Munaluchi Bride.

#TransformationTuesday – Right On Time!

Maybe I am the only one who has ever been in this place but in these words I found ‘my joy’ because they remind me God has no sense of time and He only brings our dreams to pass in His perfect time. Transformation is learning to enjoy the journey because the journey is always right on time! #DVDidIt

Fifty & Fabulous!

DVLW recently had the opportunity to help a loving husband surprise his wife with a surprise intimate celebration for her 50th birthday. These are the kind of celebrations that we relish in because we are able to hone in on the smallest details to enhance the visual and emotional experience of all guests that can sometimes get lost in our larger productions. We were tasked with delivering a colorful, energetic, Caribbean inspired celebration for a strong, educated, loving woman as she was celebrated by a group of equally amazing women.

#TransformationTuesday – Fall In Love!

It took me a lot of living and a lot of pain to finally be ready to receive this kind of love. I’ve witnessed countless love stories and many that I knew were doomed from the beginning but ladies you cannot rush love. Somehow I think that many of us can only discover our worthiness for a love like this only after we have been through enough awful love affairs…I know I learned this the hard way but oooooooh weeeee my baby was worth the wait!

#MakeItGoodMonday – Triumph Through Adversity!

Just 24 hours prior to the start of this magical party, we experienced torrential thunderstorms that caused this entire entrance to flood as well as at least 10 feet into the main dinner tent. As soon as the rain broke, we had water excavators standing by to soak up the water in the carpet. Unfortunately, it was not enough so we proceeded to rip up all of the carpet in this entrance and install new white carpet before guest arrivals.

#WeddingWednesday Diann Valentine Signature Bridal Cuffs Are The New Bouquet!

Flowers are beautiful kisses of nature…they are one of God’s gifts that add beauty and color to the world. Flowers are also beautiful design accents for weddings but should not be the star on any woman’s wedding day. As a bride makes her way down the aisle, her flowers should be a beautiful accent to her gown and not an enormous barrier that blocks everyone’s view of her couture masterpiece. Many of my clients and brides around the world are embracing my cuffs for this very reason and today I’m honoring a few of the ladies who have been bold enough to choose this alternative and loved it so much more than a traditional bouquet.

#MakeItGoodMonday – Architecture Is Music!

Every space has a spirit, r rhythm and a voice.  When venue shopping, keep in mind Goethe’s declaration that “architecture is frozen music.”  So, as I look at a church or private estate, I also listen.  I take in the walls, doorways, moldings, light fixtures – I never fight the architecture, whether art nouveau or rococo.  I never work against the aura of a space.  I listen for the song.

#SoulfulSunday – Because of Her Love!

#SoulfulSunday She taught me how to fall to my knees and seek God in all situations that life would throw at me. To develop a sincere compassion for people and those less fortunate than I. To show loving kindness towards all of mankind regardless of what they show me. To remain humble with a meek spirit because that is Christ like but also to walk through this world as bold as a lion because I am a child of the king. I am because of Her L-O-V-E! #DVDidIt #HappyMothersDay

#WeddingWednesday – Take It For A Swing!

As Tamra and Eddie Judge’s wedding was starting to wind down and it was time to cut the cake, Tamra decided to take it for a swing and sent her confectionery work of art perched on the suspended cake stand I designed flying in the air. At the moment, I thought I was going to choke because I had visions of cake smashing into Gretchen or worst yet one of her adorable daughters. However, looking back – this is one of the moments that shows why I loved working with Tamra so much. She throws caution to the wind and SHE lives. How many of you are willing to do the same?
