The Details

Thursday, October 8, 2009 4:18 PM

When they first began discussing their wedding, Kellie Williams told her fiance, Hannibal Jackson, that she wanted to spend $500 -- "and that includes long-distance phone calls," she said. Well, it didn't work out that way. They ended up having 325 guests at a church wedding and a formal reception at Camelot in Upper Marlboro.

The ambiance: Lakesha Glover and Kim Fayton of Trinity Weddings and Events designed a black-and-white-themed wedding. The bridesmaids wore '40s-style skirts and hats. Flanking the giant ballroom were ice sculptures of the couple's initials. For a bit of whimsy, they had frozen-drink machines behind the bar.

The food: Martin's Catering, which operates Camelot, served herb-roasted breast of chicken and salmon.

The dress: Williams wore a custom-made dress with a silk skirt and lace bodice with three-quarter-length sleeves by Lefty's Bridal & Boutique in District Heights.

The photographer: Jackie Hicks of Fond Memories Photography.

The first dance: "The Makings of You," by Curtis Mayfield.
