The wedding events kicks off with a traditional Nigerian Engagement Ceremony the day before the actual wedding day. The ceremony celebrates the union not just of the bride and groom but also of the two families with lots of food, prayers, and dancing in traditional Nigerian outfits and headwraps.
The American ceremony was held the next day with the bride wearing a traditional wedding dress and the groom in a tux. The reception food was a great mix of fusion cuisine and those amazing florals were created by Branching Out Floral & Event Design. I love how the separate wedding cakes reflected the style and colors of the traditional Nigerian ceremony and American one. You can tell that this was truly a wedding that appreciated and respected each culture; an essential ingredient when planning a wedding with cultural and ethnic traditions.
