Erika & Donald in Memphis, TN

Erika and Donald both attended Vanderbilt University, but never met until a Homecoming banquet years after they graduated. Donald's friends had to encourage him to sit next to Erika because he was shy, but they ended up exchanging phone numbers to meet up after the event.
The Bride: Erika Dillard, 33, MD/PhD student at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center
The Groom:Donald Ray Cannon, 41, Ob/Gyn, Ob/Gyn Care of Southern New Jersey
The DateOctober 15

The couple envisioned a 1920s, Harlem Renaissance inspired wedding, which merged Donald's love of jazz with Erika's love of 1920s fashion. The color palette was a classic black and white with splashes of red.
