NEW ORLEANS MULTICULTURAL WEDDING | THE WEDDING | JESSICA + LANRE

"Add a two-day multicultural wedding to a 3-day weekend in New Orleans and you get spectacular!  Just about everything aligned perfectly to make Jessica and Lanre's wedding weekend memorable. With the excitement of their traditional engagement still lingering from Thursday, friends, and families had all day Friday to explore the streets of Nawlin's before Saturday wedding."

GALVESTON TX INTIMATE WEDDING | GORGEOUS SUNSET | ASHLEY + JOHNNY

"I'm getting married come rain or sunshine was Ashley's response to all the gloom and doom coming from all weather stations.

Dark clouds, heavy rain, and gusty winds were the forecast for the day. And rain it did. And the dark clouds rolled in. And the winds followed suit. And it was raining as I set out to photograph this intimate wedding in Galveston, TX."

"how quickly can we adopt a strange food, attire, music, even the fine details of a Nigerian wedding 'skit' if you will (Yoruba tribe to be clear) the delicate job of a moderator narrating intentions, interjecting songs and parody. The 'sitting' or receiving families (bride in this case) and the 'standing' visiting family (groom) arriving to ask for the bride's parent's permission to marry their daughter. Oh, the formalities that follow such as the prostrating to show deference, or announcing to the world, once prompted by the ever capable moderator, that, he, the groom,  "begged", (literarily), to marry the girl. This is far from an elopement
