Prestonwood Country Club Wedding Reception | Ose + Erika

Prestonwood Country Club Wedding Reception | Ose + Erika

Working with Prestonwood Country Club to help create Ose + Erika’s romantic Summer wedding was a pleasure. Before we #MeettheMukenges, Erika shared some advice for couples on their wedding day – “The wedding day flies by, try to relax and just enjoy every moment. It’s also really nice to greet everyone at the tables, it does take some time, but it’s really nice to have the chance to say hello and thank everyone for coming.”

Ose brought Erika to UNCG for what he said was an alumni event. They walked through the campus taking a trip down memory lane and then Ose proposed in front of the music building which we agreed is the most beautiful building on campus.

My wedding dress was mermaid style, it was classy and romantic. Just my mom and I went shopping for my dress, it was actually pretty simple the dress I picked was only the 3rd dress I tried on.

 

Michael Kors shoes, they were strapped, sparkly and gold. I wore gold necklace, earrings and hair clip. My mom let me borrow her diamond bracelet with gold accents.

Makeup was by Amber Harper, she also went to UNCG.

Prestonwood is so classic and beautiful, the minute we walked into the grand ballroom we knew it was the right place. It’s absolutely gorgeous.

Before the reception began, Ose and I were by ourselves behind a curtain before our grand entrance for about 5 minutes. We actually took a few selfies, smiled, laughed and got to be totally alone for a little bit.

Classic/romantic with raspberry, navy & gold

The Flower Cupboard

Our flowers were from the Flower Cupboard. They were a mix of raspberry, to match the bridesmaid dresses, and various shades of purple and a little navy, to match the groomsmen.

Wedding ceremony- my dad walked me down the isle to O Perfect Love l, which my cousin Zack Lindquist sung.

Ose and I entered the reception to Happy Day by Patoranking. Our first dance was The closer I get to you by Luther Vandross and Beyoncé.

Yes! Ose is from the democratic republic of Congo, we incorporated Congolese culture in our wedding from the music, dancing, outfits and the family’s traditions.
