Charlene and Eme are originally from Africa (Charlene is from Botswana and Eme is from Nigeria) and when she told me that they will be having a dress change into traditional costumes, I was really excited. I love seeing and photographing different traditions and customs from other cultures. They had their wedding at the Brigalias in New Jersey and planned for an outdoor wedding. With the crazy weather we had lately, Charlene was concerned that she will not be able to do it. I told her that it never rained on my weddings (at the important times that is) and she didn’t believe me. Well, it rained during the getting ready period, it stoped during the ceremony, it started raining right when the ceremony ended but it stoped a little bit later (I had to take more pictures…). It’s good to have an “in” with the wedding gods (another reason for me to photograph your wedding…wink, wink… ). Here are the beutiful images (and you can tell the fun we all had). Enjoy:
Eme was checking to see what was all that noise about 🙂
Charlene could barely hold back her tears
Yeah, I wish people would trow money at me too….
