Finally, I get to share a wedding that has a Ghanian bride or groom on the blog. Joesephine and Keith are both from Baltimore and they met online in Feburary 2010. Their multicultural wedding was held at the Bavarian Inn Mansion in Shepherdstown, West Virginia shared with 185 of their close family and friends.

The Proposal

Proposal from Josephine:  “I had travelled up from Dallas for my Friend’s bachelorette party and so that Keith and I could go on a cruise the next day for a wedding for one of his friends. He picked me up from the bachelorette party so that we could get ready to leave for the cruise the next morning. When we got to his house he told me that I had received a letter (which was weird because I didn’t ever receive mail at his place). He handed me a letter that he wrote chronicling our relationship. As I was reading the letter, he apparently left to get the ring and when I finished reading the letter I turned around and he was on one knee and he proposed!”

The Wedding

Josephine and Keith’s wedding theme was classic fun; their theme colours were red, navy, and silver. They had a traditional outdoor wedding on April 30, 2016 administered by a wedding officiant. From the bride and groom: “The whole wedding experience was amazing. We loved all of our vendors but we had the most fun at the reception.  We loved the food,  the dj kept us on the floor dancing and our sparkler exit was the best.”

“The hardest part was planing the wedding from a distance.  Our wedding venue was in West Virginia and we live in Baltimore, MD but we were able to plan the best wedding despite the distance. Even though our families recently met and being from different cultures we were able to share in our differences and have the best of times through our journey to be a married couple and one family.”

Advice to give to other multicultural couples

“Plan ahead and find great vendors that will bring your wedding dreams to life and understand the beauty in planning a multicultural wedding.”
