Los Angeles Nigerian Wedding | Two Love Birds Unite

Pin It
He who finds a wife finds a good thing, And obtains favor from the Lord. Proverbs 18:22

Nor Distance, nor time can separate two love birds who have decided to come together in love through marriage.  When I first met Temitayo we were kayaking in Long Beach.  He shared with me about his upcoming wedding and how he had been tasked with planning it here in Los Angeles since his fiance lived in Trinidad.  A few months later we were privileged to meet his beautiful bride to be and they chose us to capture their wedding.  The day of the wedding came on the last weekend of the year and thankfully we were blessed with great weather for a winter wedding.  The wedding ceremony and reception took place at the beautiful Los Coyotes Country Club in Orange County, and the nights MC was James Loram of Last Dance Entertainment a true professional that kept everything moving smoothly.   As the night went on we new we were in for a special treat as the celebrations of their wedding began.  Their families have been great friends for a long time and it was more than evident that their love is rooted on an amazing foundation.  For us this wedding was another first.  As with our Greek, Egyptian, and Middle Eastern weddings this would be a first.  We enjoyed every moment of our first Nigerian Christian Wedding.  A celebration of love, culture, and family.  The love shared by not only the couple, but their family and friends was soo amazing and authentic that it is something we will never forget.  The clothing and the traditions were something that we were truly blessed to experience, and the closeness of everyone was beautiful  These were two families that are normally separated by many miles but united by their love.

Temitayo and Adetutu congratulations on your wedding, and may the Lord bless you with a long and loving relationship.

Los Coyotes Wedding | First Look

Pin It
There is a certain anticipation in every groom the first time he sees his bride to be.  There is an energy that can not be recreated and a first look that if not captured will never be seen again.  To us one of the most fun things to do is to coordinate a first look with our bride and groom before the ceremony.  This allows for them to have a moment of piece alone and to release some of the nerves of their upcoming wedding.  Its also something we get to have a little fun with since we are coordinating every step of it.  Yes we torture our grooms a little but its all in fun and it usually makes for a memorable moment.  Our last wedding of 2012 was a beautiful Christian Wedding at Los Coyotes Country Club.  With the perfect winter day Temitayo & Adetutu where set to profess their love before the world, but before that could happen we planned a quiet moment with only them, our cameras, and the videographers for that amazing first look.
