AGAiMAGES takes amazing photos-the kind where you can feel the emotion and the embrace the happiness resonating from a simple image. Maybe it’s the brides’s adorable dimples or the groom’s dapper style, but I found myself smiling though this entire post: from the heartfelt + lighthearted ceremony to the reception where the newlyweds changed into Nigerian outfits to celebrate the groom’s heritage and danced like it was no one’s business! See the rest of this beautiful celebration right here.

From AGAiMAGESJoAnne and Aki got married in January, and their theme was a classic winter wedding. One of the most important parts of their wedding was the church ceremony, which was filled with faith, love and bit of quirk. This part was important to them as they were not only at that moment getting to be husband and wife in front of everyone but also God. Another important part for them was the changing into their Nigerian outfits to celebrate their Aki’s heritage. Those outfits were made by Aki’s aunt! The entrance to the reception in those outfits with Nigerian drummers was crazy-fun — the full house was dancing, singing and celebrating.
