The GMWedding- Dreamy All White Setting at the Civic Center, Lagos

Kunbi O / Wednesday November 14, 2018

I am absolutely ecstatic to finally share Gozie and Mayowa’s aisle perfect wedding with you. You know you’re getting a pretty perfect affair when the bride is a superstar event planner with the chicest of taste. We already saw the trendsetting Nigerian Traditional Wedding so we expected nothing short of fabulous for the grand finale. We were right.

Photographed by AP fave Wani Olatunde along side the super talented Lumi Morgan, #TheGMWedding brings timeless sophistication to the forefront. From Gozie’s stunning Berta wedding dress to the oh-so-perfect all white wedding reception decor, this wedding knocked it out the park from beginning to end. I mean they had a gifting suite (by The Souvenir Concierge) for goodness sake! All the details were accounted for and the after party was truly epic. Coker Creative has a fan for life!

I’d like to take a minute to seriously swoon over Gozie’s breathtaking Berta Bridal Gown. We stan the Israeli wedding designer here at Aisle Perfect and you can see why. The dress fit our bride like a glove and she’s giving the perfect balance of sweet and striking. Absolutely gorgeous!

I’m a sucker for a good bouquet and this one by Aralia by Nature was an absolute beauty! The bride finished off her romantic bundle with her prayer rosary draped within the flowers, as an ode to her Catholic faith. Talk about perfection!

Another unique aspect of the #GMWedding was their one of a kind Gifting Suite. Instead of blanket wedding favors, guests were treated to their choice of a variety of options similar to a SWAG suite at an award ceremony. We asked the bride what her inspiration was for the suite, her answer? “I couldn’t decide!”

The  After Party

I’m not going to lie, one of the things I look forward to now at a wedding, is the After Party. It’s when the real party starts and all the fun is ready to be had. I love how couples are putting more details into their after parties and you can expect more of that in 2019. #TheGMWedding was truly epic and their after party is still talked about months later.
