Although my friend Ama and I had been talking on phone, facebook and Blackberry chat we had actually not seen ourselves since we left secondary school which was in 1994 (that is a lonnngggg time)..She had no idea i was the one doing her traditional makeup and she was expecting a Bunmi so imagine the squealing and screaming and jumping and hugging as her sister introduced her to Bunmi (eyes rolling).
Okay i am yapping too much. Let us get on with the pictures.LOL

So you have had a preview of what an insider was able to see. we now move to the wedding ceremony itself. Let me at this point say that it was a very intimate and nice wedding. i felt like we knew everyone in the hall and i want to give a BIG THUMBS UP to the bride and groom for making it that way. Not once did a bridezilla moment happen(well i think...LOL)
