Evelyn Lozada Re-emerges On Top!

My friend and client Evelyn Lozada has weathered a tough year but she remains one of the women I admire the most.  Her strength, honesty with her emotions and ‘around the way girl’ persona is only a few of the reasons why I love her.  After a long silence she re-emerges on Season 5 of Basketball Wives proving that she is built to last.  I’ve held onto the images from that magical night not sure what to do with them but I’ve decided to finally share them because on this night we celebrated Evelyn Lozada and I’m proud of what she inspired me to create!

    Ahh, Diann, what beautiful work. I wanted to comment on one specific thing, but each detail was beautiful it left me with the an overall impression of your exquisite work. I thought my wedding was beautiful being at Atlantis and taking advantage of the natural backdrop, but you are definitely making me want a snazzy milestone anniversary.

    Mrs. Valentine, this wedding is beyond beautiful it’s simply spectacular and a creative masterpiece. Love everything about this wedding especially the breathtaking butterfly wall and phalaenopsis orchids (which are my personal favorite). Great job as always and thanks for finally sharing this gorgeous images with us. Love you and your entire DVL team.

    Mrs. Valentine:

    Breathtakingly gorgeous!!! You seem to out do yourself with every event! So very gracious and sensitive to hold the photos of your work until now… a real class act. Thank you for sharing.

    Mrs. Valentine, who was the floral designer for Evelyn’s wedding?

    • Diann Valentine says:

      Hi Jarvis – As always, thank you for your kind words. The florist was a company named Artemis on the island of St. Maarten.

  11. Jarvis Lawhorn says:

    Wow Mrs. Valentine, they did an amazing job. You blow my mind with every wedding/event. Can’t wait to see Tamra and Eddie’s wedding on Bravo. I know the magazine spread doesn’t do it justice.

  12. Anika says:

    I sat in on your session at the Megafest. I was not familiar with you, however, I felt your spirit and was anxious to research your work. You indicated that you give the service of LOVE and it is definitely reflected in your work. I just wanted to reach out and tell you to keep up the good work as God has truly blessed you.
