She is a fierce and crazy-talented professional makeup artist. He is a completely off-the-chain-funny and wicked talented professional basketball player.
Together they will bring you to your knees laughing.
Meet Mr. and Mrs. Carlos Powell.
It was a beautiful, picture-perfect Sunday afternoon. The wedding suite was calm, relaxed…almost dreamy. Time did not exist. Only us. Art. And one crazy party ahead.
In the wide world of sports, many professional athletes do not have the luxury of planning. Trades, moves, conditioning and so on…leaves a lot to the unknown. And basketball does not stop because you are getting married.
By the grace of God, they were able to plan a post ceremony celebration before he had to hop a plane to Vegas (yep…that very same celebration party night) for the next years draft.
It’s a crazy (and not as glamourous as one might think) life.
Nonetheless, they are blissfully happy and ready to conquer this beautiful life…together.
