Abiola and Daniel Nigerian Wedding

"Where are all of these people coming from?" is the question I asked on the day of Abiola and Daniel's wedding. I was blown away as the night continued and the guests kept on coming on the hour. Before we knew it the guest count had reached 500. Abiola prepared me beforehand of possible unexpected guests since it is popular in her Nigerian culture. And how they love to party. She was right about that!

My photographer Jose Reyes and his staff were running around the room the entire day to capture all of the details. From the American traditions then to the Nigerian traditions.

Abiola was such a beautiful bride inside out and very pleasant to be around. All of the vendors took great joy in working with her. My makeup artist Khadeen Joseph-Ellis had a great time working to make this bride glow on her wedding day. And her hair stylist Joelle worked her hair to perfection.

Throughout the planning process, I became more than her planner, I became her friend.

Abiola chose the The Rotunda to host her wedding ceremony and reception. It was a space that captures the huge panoramic view she wanted along with a beach to hold her ceremony.

The space needed to be filled with decorations and plenty of color. I knew the perfect vendor to hire for her wedding. Patrick and Josh of City Iris was the right decorator and floral designer for her wedding. They made the venue look like royalty for this beautiful African Queen!

This was a wedding no one would forget and the memories will last a lifetime.


What's she telling Abiola to do?

Abiola serve your King!
