We first met Eby and Angel at a local coffee shop to talk over details of their day. We just loved the idea of the traditional African aspects they were going to be incorporating.
Once the big day arrived, we met with Angel at her hotel to get photos of the details, and then met with the guys to capture them getting ready. There was such a calm atmosphere among the groomsmen and the groom as Eby took some time to read his bible in the down time.
We then went back to get pictures of Angel getting hair and makeup done….doesn’t she look breath taking? Her bridesmaids played fun music throughout the morning and sipped on cocktails as they anxiously awaited the time when they could leave for the venue.
The wedding was held at the new community center in Aiken called the Lessie B. Price Aiken Senior and Youth Center. It was the first wedding that was held there, and we were very impressed with the space.
The ceremony was beautiful and heartfelt and after they said ‘I Do’ the couple went off together to change into the more traditional clothing for the reception. Right after the ceremony, the pastor prayed a blessing over all of the married couples there and it was such a beautiful thing to be a part. We so love sharing and learning in other cultures, so this wedding was really fun for us.
We absolutely loved working with Eby and Angel and wish them all the happiness that the future has to bring them.
