Ok so guess who’s over the moon excited about today’s real wedding? *raises hand* As if I’m not excited about every wedding?! Kascha and Henry’s engagement session was definitely a stylish one so I couldn’t wait to see what their wedding had in store. It was a traditional Nigerian wedding with drums, classic vibrant color and of course, beautiful clothing! Can someone invite me to a Nigerian wedding please? Ok, I digress….Sachel Samone (one of my favorites) was in awe herself of what she was capturing that day. See what she says below!
From the Photographer:
“When it comes to Kascha and Henry….OH. MY. GOSH. WHERE DO I BEGIN!??!?! I absolutely LOVE these two!!!
I met Kascha and Henry back in college at The University of Georgia and ever since I could remember, these two have been joined at the hip! I’m pretty sure everyone in our social circles were WAITING for the day these two got engaged! Kascha, now a elementary school teacher and Henry, a software hardware engineer, both have hearts of gold and the way they look at each other….my heart swells with so much love! I absolutely LOVED their ENGAGEMENTS back in the Classic City earlier this year and to say I’ve been excited about the #henryandkascha weekend would be SUCH an understatement! Not only was I photographing TWO ceremonies for them, but I was also photographing my FIRST traditional Nigerian ceremony! I’d totally be lying if I said I knew what to expect. I had so many thoughts and pictures in my head on what I expected it to be and let me tell you something: it was NOTHING like I imagined. It was SO. MUCH. BETTER. This ceremony was rich with vibrant reds, captivating blues and pinks! From ALL the vibrant colors, to the sounds of the drums…from the dancing to the clothes (Oh MY GOSH THE CLOTHES!!), EVERYTHING was so beautiful. There was so much love and peace in that venue. Every where I turned, there were sounds of laughter, looks of pride from their parents and smiles! I must say…the way Henry and Kascha’s love brought two cultures together…to celebrate, pray for and honor them…it left me speechless.”
