Please welcome Onikika and Sean Hines! I began working with Onikika a year ago on plans for her big day. Her main focus was , “Anything unique and different!” In the spirit of unique and different, the guests were asked to wear all white and the bride wore a stunning pink wedding gown with beading. Onikika loves the vintage look. So, we knew that Newton White Mansion located in Mitchellville, MD would be the perfect fit. It is a stately mansion with such a romantic feel. Onikika selected the colors soft pink, lime green, and gold. These are perfect colors for summer. We added lots of candlelight and vintage lanterns to complete the decor. uests enjoyed cocktails in the grand dining room. They were then welcomed ballroom for dinner and dancing.
Thank you Lance, with Lance Rothwell Photography for these beautiful photographs that captured the love of this beautiful day.

Before the wedding ceremony began, the photographer captured special moments of prayer that the Pastor held with the bride and groom.
Everyone waited anxiously for the bride to appear.
Especially the groom!
Onikika’s sons escorted her partially down the aisle to her uncle, who lovingly stood in for her deceased father. He completed the walk to her groom.
You can see the love in their eyes.
Onikika and Sean decided to partake in a Unity Cross ceremony. This verbiage is taken from the Unity Cross Website and explains the purpose of the ceremony.
Such a happy couple!
On to the Cocktails inside the grand dining room and dinner inside the ballroom.
Liturgical dancers blessed the guests with a beautiful dance to an inspirational song.
The rest of the night was dedicated to love, laughter, and plenty of dancing.
They are such a beautiful couple! All the best to you both!!!
