Hey beautiful people….. Its been a long time coming, so today I’m sharing the most beautiful day of my life with you guys. Enjoy!
The stars of the day – My Wedding Gown was made by the amazing Veejay Floresca
, after 4 sketches and 3 skype fittings she was created, it was everything I wanted, just enough lace, tulle, beading and embroidery to go round, Filipinos most definitely know their craft. My 2nd/Reception dress was a Tadashi Shoji
dress, Golden Globe Award winner Octavia Spencer rocked this dress too, it was the perfect reception dress. A big shout out to my aunty who wanted me to experience the “trying on dresses with your mother” feeling, after trying on several dresses we both agreed that this was a winner.
My favorite guy rocked an Okunoren Bespoke suit
I wore these tiffany blue shoes by Aruna Seth – My decision to wear flats = Best decision ever
I turned it up later in the evening with these gold YSL Sandals and studded Zara clutch. The diamond earrings and bracelets were my “Something Borrowed” literally, LOL.
Everyone said I was very calm that morning, my wedding planner said she’d never worked with a bride that had breakfast…..chileeee I had some yam and egg with the sweetest pepper sauce ever, I didn’t want to be a hungry bride, LOL.
Everyone getting ready.
Me totally being the bride aka the most important person of the day.
My favorite part of my dress – THE BACK
My girls were AWESOME, I love you guys so much
Segi wore a Max Azria dress, and my bridesmaids wore dresses by Vicky Tiel and Badgley Mischka. I bought the dresses all by myself shuttling between stores in New York, it was not an easy task but I was determined and it was worth it :o) …. A tip for future brides, you don’t have to find your bridesmaids dresses at your typical bridal stores. I found these dresses, and my reception dress at the Evening Wear sections of stores.
Big big love to my sister friends Fiky and Misty, it is a testimony that they made it to the wedding… They were both involved in a terrible accident on their way home from my bridal shower/hen night a week before the wedding, but as always God is above…The crutches were definitely not stopping Fiky.
Now we are in Church…
We are married, yayyy
At the reception…..
The Bridal Party sat at this table on the stage, think “Best Man” …really that wasn’t the plan, but we had to make the most with the logistics of our venue, still it turned out nice.
Our colors were Mint, Silver/Grey and Blush
I’ve always loved the Cathedral length veil and I was not going to wear any other kind of veil… Having said that, it was a pain in the bum and a huge relief to eventually take it off.
The whole crew, we look like we should be on the cover of a TV show or something.
My little homies, Joshua and Mayomikun – There was a script but let’s just say things didn’t go as planned, lol
My Cousins looked so pretty in their mint dresses
My beautiful sisters wore custom made Lanre Da Silva Ajayi dresses, they were so busy being wonderful hosts that I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures with them.
In my reception Dress
I cannot begin tell you just how awesome that day was, but it really was. Our friends and family are the absolute best and I am so so glad that EVERYBODY had fun, don’t believe me? Wait till our next post, it was such a good time that I didn’t even remember to be upset about some of the naughty things some vendors did, I just sat up there and couldn’t stop smiling. I pray for many many happy days like this for me and for you too, AMEN!!!
