Alexandria Turner and Brent Butler have known each other since they were 13 years old. They grew up in the same neighborhood and were best friends by the end of high school, but it wasn’t until their junior year of college that they started dating. A few years later, the best friends became husband and wife, tying the knot in stylish fashion at Hudson Loft in Culver City. While searching for the right look for their wedding, Alexandria and Brent found a way to fuse their two different styles. Alexandria is drawn to pops of color and drama, while Brent prefers muted shades and minimalism. So, what did this fusion look like? A chic and streamlined design accented by muted oranges and green. Though their aesthetic preferences may differ, Alexandria and Brent agreed wholeheartedly on one thing: to work with as many Black and female wedding vendors as possible. The couple took care to pay attention to the details, which highlighted the importance of their family and friends as well as their readiness to party. Chairs for the ceremony were arranged in a circular fashion to create a sense of togetherness, and lottery tickets were placed at every dining seat in envelopes reading “For richer or for poorer (hopefully richer).” They also provided foosball, air hockey and a 360-degree photo booth during cocktail hour. Alexandria’s and Brent’s sartorial prowess shone as they stood in front of their loved ones. Brent wore an asymmetrical sage green, mandarin-collared sports coat with khaki pants that included a matching sage green stripe down the side of each leg; Alexandria was the picture of grace in a V-neck sleeveless gown with a low scoop back. To close the ceremony, the couple jumped the broom and made their way to the reception, where they had their first dance to “Superpower” by Beyoncé and Frank Ocean. As everyone enjoyed the party, guests took a moment to leave voice messages on a red telephone, which had been set up in lieu of a guest book. Now, Alexandria and Brent can always remember their wedding by listening to the recorded voices of their friends and family.
