Sonja Mark at St. Mary’s

It may have been raining on the outside, but Sonja and Mark’s wedding last weekend was PURE SUNSHINE in my heart! They were such a fun couple to work with. Their wedding was held at St. Mary’s, which was the very first Catholic Church in South Carolina! The beautiful sanctuary is always a pleasure to work in. Following the ceremony, their reception was held at The Mills House where the Signers Ballroom was decorated to the hilt. Everyone had a BLAST until it was time for the happy couple to leave in their classic getaway car.

His music has always been driven by optimism and happiness; it contains melodies that curl through the patterns like vines on a trellis. It’s lilting, rippling, dance groove that seems to smile from every register, with inseparable melody and rhythm. He is without a doubt one of the most famous exponents of music from Congo and, has been at the heart of the span class=”blsp-spelling-error” id=”SPELLING_ERROR_6″Soukous/span scene since the 80’s.”/strong I picked this song in honor of Sonja’s beautiful mother…her name is Africa! /em/div
