Style/Theme: Modern Chic Infused with Nigerian Culture
“Chisom has so many good qualities that I prayed to God for in a wife,” the groom said of his bride. “She is God-fearing, family-oriented, caring, smart, hardworking, and… last but not the least… she is a great cook. But seriously- have you tried her shrimp fried rice and curry chicken? They say that the easiest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. These great qualities endeared her to my family members and some friends that had the opportunity to meet her while we were dating. I just had complete peace of mind about my decision to marry her.”
For their 500 reception guests, the bride and groom had adorable menu cards made! What a great touch.
“Our reception was designed to keep entirely with the theme of purple, champagne, and fuchsia,” said the bride. “We designed an oval chuppah with sheer white curtains which were gathered with purple and pink flowers and chose a dramatic, high back settee along with a glass, translucent table to complete the stage. We ultimately chose to have 2 different styles of décor on our round tables- table with tall, dramatic, pink and purple flowers alternating with tables filled completely of candles. Our bridal party sat at long, dramatic, family-style table in the center of the reception space. Their setting was designed to have large statement centerpieces and many candles and was absolutely breathtaking.”
