John & Sini get married! What a treat to photograph this special wedding. A Minnesotan and a Tennessean meet while each doing their own residency in pediatrics in Los Angeles. They fall in love and decide to celebrate that love with their families & friends.
The festivities were held at Sini's parents home in rural Tennessee, about 45 minutes north of Memphis. Not only was there a nice southern vibe at the wedding, there was also lots of Nigerian traditions in the mix. As a child of an immigrant parent myself, I always enjoy seeing various cultural traditions mixed into an American wedding. There were drummers at the ceremony, money thrown towards the bride while she searches for the groom among the guests, multiple outfit changes with Nigerian coral, dancing, drinking, eating, money-stars, soccer teammate hugs, and lots of laughs.
