Purple and Gold Nigerian Wedding in Chicago

Brianna Kozlarek / Wednesday March 23, 2016


Happy #WeddingWednesday! Today’s purple and gold Nigerian wedding is positively regal. Even better? It’s photographed by our #PrettyPerfectPartner Olujr Photographr. Who better to give us some insight into this beautiful day?

“I met Moriam and James a few years ago through mutual friends. I couldn’t wait to shoot their wedding as they are a fun- loving couple with amazing chemistry. It was an honor for me to be a part of their wedding ceremony and I enjoyed being able to express my creativity with them. I look forward to working with them in the near future.”

Moriam and James married at the Christ Church of Chicago. The love is so clear to see in these photos. Moriam’s getting ready shots with her girls and their joy at the ceremony comes straight through. Moriam looked absolutely stunning in her satin wedding dress and her bridesmaids were striking in deep red gowns. Groom James couldn’t have looked happier as his bride greeted him at the alter, and he looked very dapper in his navy suit. The smiles and laughter in these photos are contagious, take a look at some our favorite shots:

The Reception

The decor at this stunning reception at the Chicago Croatian Cultural Center is everything. From the incredible five tier cake to the dramatic floral centerpieces, this reception was fabulous perfection. Aside from the amazing decor, the other thing that stands out? This group LOVES to dance (check out James’ moves on during the garter removal!) It is clear that everyone is having the time of their lives throughout these beautiful photos.
