The oh-so stunning, Rebekah, got ready with her 12 bridesmaids at the Bedford Columns in Bedford, VA last month before she married the love of her life, Dele.
She and Dele are from different parts of the world, he is British Nigerian and she is a Florida girl…but their paths aligned in college and nothing has been the same since.
They didn’t do a first look so that they could soak up all the time possible with their perspective parties. I love that Rebekah had her maids choose different dresses!
How cute are their bouquets?!
This is the photo that drew my attention to the whole wedding in the first place. Rebekah, you are GORGEOUS!
The grand steps of the venue made such an elegant entrance for Rebekah as she made her way down the aisle with her father.
Rebekah’s dad wasn’t just in charge of walking her down the aisle, he also served as their officiant and married the pair as soon as he handed her off to Dele!
And what a pair they make! All the feels y’all.
The cocktail hour took place indoors while the newly married couple got some pictures alone.
These two are perfection!
The reception, which was also inside, was made to be light, bright, and airy! They chose to go with neutrals, whites, and pops of light blue. I really love the see through resin chairs.
And how cute are their favors?! So handy too!
Congrats Rebekah and Dele!
From the Bride:
What was your favorite detail of the day? “My favorite detail was truly the overall theme of the day. Celebration! Nothing made me happier than to just have all of our family and friends in one place at one time and celebrating together. Not just in general, but celebrating Dele and me. Our big day! The happiest day!”
What advice would you give to a bride to be? “If I could give any piece of advice, it would be to enjoy it! Enjoy every moment. Not just the day of, enjoy it all. Enjoy the steps leading up to your big day and throughout the whole stress of the planning process. Think of what is coming! Wake up early on your wedding day to soak up every moment. Enjoy the actual wedding, because it really does fly by. Enjoy your honeymoon! Spend that free time with your honey that seems to never get to happen. And enjoy being married! :)”
