Interracial marriage are one of my favorite marriage subjects. I find that, culture is the breathe of life and what makes it lush.
I love specializing in interracial weddings because it becomes all about light and love. – Kafi

From Ama Chandra: Loving Miles…

 

Laughing, loving MaeLee and Miles

With great courage and love, our friend Ama Chandra delivered twins Miles and MaeLee.  Today she will be letting Miles say goodbye.  With all her love, she wanted to share Miles with you all.  Our friend always shows great spirits and uplifts others, even in her most difficult moments.  Many of you have asked how you can help Ama during this time.  Please contact me directly at studiokafi@gmail.com or via facebook @KafiD’Ambrosi. Ama also requested that you leave your comments here on the blog so that she can read each one instead of on facebook.  “Thank you all for your love.” – Ama

Mamma love you Miles-

Karen + Christian } A Wedding at the Eubie Blake Cultural Center

Karen + Christian James. From the beginning, they were all about their love, starting their life together, their faith and their family. Their wedding had to have two additional passions, art and dancing. Their perfect day came together at the Eubie Blake National Jazz and Cultural Center.  They pledged their love and fidelity surrounded by friends, history, art, music and loved ones.  Then they danced until their DJ left. Heres to you Karen and Christian. We’ll never forget such an amazing day and we’ll definitely will never forget the Converse.


You Are Still the One

Happy Anniversary to my gorgeous husband, to us.
As I sat here this morning thinking of marriage, my marriage, I was eating gourmet jelly beans and had an epiphany. Love and marriage is like a mouthful of Jelly Belly beans. You take that first bite and it’s joyous, the second is full of surprise and on it goes. Spicy, soothing, fire, coffee? I love so many things about him, about us. I try not to share too much so others won’t get jealous.

He’s the man who couldn’t wait to begin our marriage, so we preplanned our elopement. He wiped away the morning sickness, faced a choice of losing me or our unborn baby, and has encountered prejudice for loving me. He makes me cry with his tenderness and makes me proud just for being himself. I love that we fit.

praying for olivia

My last post showed a maternity session with Julie and Andy.  They have requested friends and family pray for their daughter Olivia. In their own words:

“Please keep our little girl in prayer. An ultrasound this morning revealed a mass in her abdomen and surgery is being recommended. We’re being followed at Hopkins and should know more once we consult w/ pediatric surgery tomorrow. Please pray for her, the doctors, and us as we wait to find out the final diagnosis and treatment plan.”

“We’ll know more about the mass and surgery once Olivia arrives, so we’re just loving and waiting for her to make her entrance. We can’t say enough about the amount of love and support we’ve received. Thank you all for your continual prayers. We have felt them go before us in each step of this process.” – Julie Lange

julie + andy, waiting for olivia at evergreen house

so remember when we were young and we would babysit for the competitive price of $1.10 an hour? well, it took me 34 hours to buy those lee rider jeans. i used to babysit for one family. at first there was just one, and then there were three:  brian, andy and lizzie. andy was the middle child. he used to call me fafi and he loved his cowboy hat, his baby sister and generally causing havoc with, and coloring on his brother with his dad’s permanent marker drafting pens. there was much soccer, a couple of kitchen fires and a few near death experiences. overall, a good babysitting adventure. i survived him and he survived me. fast forward to today. i no longer babysit and he no longer leaps from his deck trying to be a flying cowboy.
he found a beautiful bride and his best friend in julie and he is about to become a dad to olivia.
we all spent a couple of hours at Evergreen House, laughing, avoiding garden eating deer and splashing in the fountain. thank you julie and andy. i can’t wait to meet olivia.
