It’s with great excitement and major feels that I bring you this special aisle perfect wedding all the way from Lagos, Nigeria. My brother Rotimi FINALLY married his longtime sweetheart Valerie in a beautiful series of events over the summer. I’m going to share things a bit backwards by starting with their western wedding first because it’s just too pretty not to share.
You know we have an aisle perfect bride when the attention to detail goes above and beyond. Valerie knew exactly what she wanted and was hands-on from the beginning to achieve her perfect day. From the elegant wedding ceremonies to a truly epic after party (I think I’m still recovering), this wedding had it all. If you’re looking for stylish inspiration for YOUR #aisleperfect day, sit back and enjoy #TheRVlove.

Valerie’s backless Tony Ward Couture wedding gown was an simple yet elegant statement piece with three dimensional floral appliqué’s that are perfectly on-trend for the 2018 bride. The beautiful textured gown turned heads as soon as she walked through the doors at the ceremony. Can you blame us?
You know I love a well designed reception! The couple went for a radiant purple palette with lots of floral statements, like this double arch over the stage and floral-crystal chandeliers.
