Whenever I say I am doing a wedding on a week day I always get a surprise look from others. So I find myself havingto explain that different culture the bride has 2-3 weddings leading up to her big day. American brides only have one wedding can you imagine if we celebrated two weddings.
My Nigerian bride Adeola introduction wedding was on a Thursday in Westchester, NY. Today she is wearing her traditonal Nigerian clothing so I decided to keep her makeup color basic and just give her a strong lip color. I did airbrush Adeola makeup using the OCC
makeup. On her wedding day I plan to glam her up with lashes, bronzer, contouring, the works.
