Since Amy and Kenya got engaged in downtown Mobile, it was only fitting that the couple wed at a landmark venue that symbolized the city. The Battle House Renaissance Hotel not only exemplified the history they were seeking, but also offered the ease of a near all-inclusive wedding.

Eight months after the downtown proposal, Amy Lynn Britton and Kenya Kwame Franklin were united in marriage on July 20, 2019. Pastor Scott Williams officiated.

The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John E. Britton. The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Franklin

The bride chose her sister, Laura Britton Meyers, as maid of honor. Elizabeth Whitehurst, Nakila Ellis and Latrina Jackson served as bridesmaids. The couple’s daughter, Aubrey Franklin, served as flower girl.

The groom’s brother, Jelani Franklin, served as best man. Groomsmen were David Herman, Roosevelt Coar and Darryl Ramsey. The couple’s son, Holden Britton, served as junior groomsman.

Immediately following the ceremony, a reception was held in the ballroom of The Battle House Renaissance Hotel. The menu featured moroccan spiced lamp chops, mini fried shrimp po’ boys, and a rosemary citrus porkloin carving station. The sleek three-tier wedding cake with floral accents was provided by Cakes by Judi. DJ AJC kept guests on the dance floor all night. 

The bride and groom exited the reception with a sparkler sendoff before leaving in a pink classic Chevrolet Bel Air. 

After a relaxing honeymoon in Jamaica, the couple now resides in Birmingham.
