Last month, we had the amazing opportunity to be a part of Tayo + Mekyla’s wedding weekend celebration! On the evening before their American wedding, Tayo’s parents hosted a traditional Nigerian Wedding Ceremony for the them at the Crowne Plaza in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Tayo’s mother is Nigerian, and they had family + friends travel from all over to celebrate with them. It was a beautiful event – not only aesthetically, but culturally + spiritually as well! The ceremony was steeped with tradition + blessing + joy. It had many similar elements to a traditional American wedding ceremony, but each element seemed more intentional, more understood by the couple and the families. It truly was a really meaningful evening – and also an awesome party. Oh, how they danced!! :)

We were so grateful for this unique chance to capture this piece of their wedding story for them. Congratulations again, Tayo + Mekyla!Tayo + Mekyla
