Wedding Video Reel - Sowho + Ogunlesi

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you had a fantastic weekend!!! I sure did, it was relaxing. There were so many activities to do, but I just chilled with the girls and it was amazing!!! Loved every second of it.

Here's a clip of our wedding video. The videographer definitely did a great job! I'd recommend them for anyone getting married in the DMV area. After looking at my wedding photos, I thank God that my parents got me braces and we got both got our teeth whitened! Another thing I would recommend to anyone getting married soon!!! *smile*

Traditional Wedding Sowho + Ogunlesi

In regards to the traditional wedding. I didn't plan anything...literally. I didn't choose my jewellery, my outfits, the decor, the food, the location. I just told my parents, my husbands desired color scheme that he wanted. (Note if your engaged let your husband be involved in some aspect of the wedding planning process.) We just showed up...and it was a small, intimate and lovely affair. 

If I am honest I was a bit hesitant about putting the photos of my traditional wedding and white wedding up, but people asking for photos, so I just had to!
My Lovely Siblings!!!
 My Beautiful Parents, I'm beyond Blessed!!!
 I must say I loved seeing Tosin in Urhobo Traditional attire!
 I swear the elders always have more fun at traditional weddings!!
 My Beautiful Bridesmaids...almost all of them, *smile*.
 I was so eager I took a big bite of the Kola Nut...thus my disgusted face. Word of advise to future brides, take a pinch!

Take Three

For the last segment of our engagement shoot, we went to the top of the Museum in town, because of the beautiful Castle in the background. Unfortunately, we didn't get a chance to take photos in front of it. Maybe I'll do that for an outfit post one day, as I loved the idea.
Nevertheless, Tosin wore a suit with Russell and Bromley Patent Leather Shoes. While I wore a Peter Pilotto Dress with Christian Louboutin 100 Pigalles. He was trying to match my fly!!!! We had an amazing time shooting; very different from shooting for the blog...memories that I'll cherish forever.

A Scottish Tale

I hope you had an amazing July 4th weekend. I did, spending it with family eating (a bit too much) and reconnecting with high school and college friends. Now back to the wedding series...

When brainstorming about where to take our engagement photos, we knew that the best place was in our backyard...not literally. Edinburgh, Scotland is full of beautiful scenery and architecture that we knew we hit the jackpot, in terms of backgrounds for photos.
 The dress I wore, was bought from Topshop Boutique summer of 2013 on sale for £70.00 and I'm so happy I did. It was one of those buy now for the future type dresses, although you have no idea where or when you will wear it. I really need to step up my game in the classic, black tie, and evening dresses department.

We had an amazing time shooting these photos... I think he did a bit more so than me, no? Haa ha!!
