Former MTV VJ, Lala Vasquez will also marry her long time basket ball player beau, Carmelo Anthony.
In her own words: In the video below, Vasquez dishes on all her wedding details, from the planner to the dress, the cake, the bridal party and who will or will not sing at her wedding.
While she gives us a preview of the dresses in the video, we’ll wait to see whether she rocks Vera Wang or her second choice.
And that’s not all when it comes to Lala’s wedding. She and Anthony have inked their own reality show with VH1, with an emphasis on the couple’s wedding planning and ultimate wedding finale (more details in video below).
LaLa Vazquez and Carmelo Anthony always said they wanted a red color scheme for their wedding. In the end, they got everything they wanted and more – with thousands of candles and flowers transforming New York’s Cipriani 42nd St. into a scarlet sea of rich, romantic reds and saturated pinks at their nuptials on Saturday night.
The wedding was planned by event planner Mindy Weiss. Designer Ed Libby crafted the theme, evoking love and romance, beginning with the ceremony itself. Vazquez entered through wrought-iron gates wrapped in floral boas and made her way over plush Bordeaux carpeting down a red satin aisle lined with suspended floral lanterns.
The bride, 31, and groom, 26, exchanged their vows beneath a floral-encrusted canopy made up of tens of thousands of red roses with accents of hot-pink hydrangea and cymbidium orchids. Vazquez carried a bouquet of amore roses studded with crystals and rhinestones and wrapped in ivory satin to coordinate with her Vera Wang gown.
After the ceremony, as the space was being transformed for the reception, guests moved to a cocktail area with an oversized red patent leather lounging bed and custom-built bar inset with plexi vitrines with red crystal chandeliers suspended inside.
At the reception, 30 dinner tables were set with two alternate designs: one with a double-tiered golden candelabra set atop a red broomstick silk linen with a custom gold soutache cap; and another with a rouge ribon taffeta topped with a crystal pool filled with floating candles and orchid heads, set beneath an open lantern of rose petals and crystals strands.
The other thing Anthony requested beforehand was great music for dancing, and the couple got the Rolls-Royce of dance floors: a high-gloss black plexi floor outfitted with their custom monogram set at the head of the ballroom.

her primary challenge = LV = 34 = Generating a buzz.
Lala Vasquez was born on June 25th, 1979 according to http://www.astrotheme.com/portraits/eyjSbtVtHuHy.htm
6 + 25 +2+0+1+0 = 34 = her personal year (from June 25th, 2010 to June 24th, 2011) = Generating a buzz. Red. Red hot.
When her number (34 (her primary challenge)) comes up (this is her 34 year), that’s when she gets to live/experience what she is here to live/experience. So this is HER year!!!
