About

Hi! Thank you for visiting us online. I’m Abla, founder and lead planner of The A. Pleased to meet you! I’ve had the pleasure and honor of being a part of both intimate and large weddings – ethnic, multi-cultural, inter-faith, and western and brings all these experiences and knowledge to every wedding.

A transplant from Ghana who calls the Washington, DC metro area home, I can’t Abla Doku, Wedding Planner in Virginiaimagine living anywhere else except when it gets too cold, lol! I enjoy being in nature, playing tennis, tea and red wine. A believer in paying it forward, I carve out time and resources to support not-for profit causes that are dear to my heart. Celebrating life’s moments with community, family and friends has always been around me and I can’t believe, I get to share this joy, passion and experiences with brides and grooms making their big day as unique as they are.

The A Wedding team is of diverse ethnic backgrounds and understand and know the importance of infusing cultural and ethnic elements into one’s big day. We bring years of experience to help you make the best choices to fit your life-style and culture. From design, decorations, bridal bouquets to planning and coordination, we are here to offer you a unique wedding experience, as well as give you peace of mind.

There is no wedding without a hitch even when they looks perfect to the couple and guests.  Things happen behind the scenes. The most important thing is how these “hitches” are handled. Making them seem a part of the plan all along takes quick thinking, problem solving abilities, experience and the ability to stay cool and collected under pressure.

Lasting relations have developed and friendships have been formed with many of The A Wedding brides over the years and we can’t wait to get to know you. To become a part of The A Wedding family, visit the Engage page and us a about your wedding needs and we’ll be happy to merge our expertise with your vision (we’ll help you create one if you don’t have any) for an unforgettable attention to detail dream wedding.

We look forward to helping you create a stylish and beautiful wedding.

Enjoy The A Wedding Experience,

Abla & The A Team
