KASCHA + HENRY | A JEWEL-TONED TRADITIONAL NIGERIAN WEDDING | RIVERDALE, GA

When it comes to Kascha and Henry….OH. MY. GOSH. WHERE DO I BEGIN!??!?! I absolutely LOVE these two!!!

I met Kascha and Henry back in college at The University of Georgia and ever since I could remember, these two have been joined at the hip! I’m pretty sure everyone in our social circles were WAITING for the day these two got engaged! Kascha and Henry both have hearts of gold and the way they look at each other….my heart swells with so much love! I absolutely LOVED their engagements back in the Classic City earlier this year and to say I’ve been excited about the #henryandkascha weekend would be SUCH an understatement! Not only was I photographing TWO ceremonies for them, but I was also photographing my FIRST traditional Nigerian ceremony!

I’d totally be lying if I said I knew what to expect. I had so many thoughts and pictures in my head on what I expected it to be and let me tell you something: it was NOTHING like I imagined. It was SO. MUCH. BETTER.

From the vibrant colors, to the sounds of the drums…from the dancing to the clothes (Oh MY GOSH THE CLOTHES!!), EVERYTHING was so beautiful. There was so much love and peace in that venue. Every where I turned, there were sounds of laughter,  looks of pride from their parents and smiles! I must say…the way Henry and Kascha’s love brought two cultures together…to celebrate, pray for and honor them…it left me speechless. 🙂
