Our 2012 edition of our wedding publication, clutch, the bride’s guide to have and to hold, was so fun to put together, and the “everyday weddings” are no exception. I wanted to take the time to show you some of the photos that didn’t make it into the print edition, and you will find many more areas of inspiration … including a plethora of bridesmaids all in the same color with different dress styles. Here is what we had to say in our wedding issue about their wedding:
Christine and Robierre had been friends for quite a while, until one day all it took was a look for them to realize that they were both in love with their best friend. There was a slight chill in the spring air as this couple said their nuptials and capped it off with a reception filled with dancing and singing. They both have a quirky sense of humor, and their Kenyan wedding was fun … just like them.
And here is what Christine had to say about her special day:
My husband and I are both Kenyan, and we moved to the US when we were both around 20. His family still lives in Kenya, and mine lives here. It was important for us to incorporate our culture simply because it is who we are. Plus, it is lots of fun! We actually had a mix of cultures since we are both from different ethnic groups and thus slightly different cultures. We also wanted our family in Kenya to feel part of the ceremony and see parts of it (on video) that they recognize.
Enjoy perusing their wedding and as an update, this sweet couple welcomed their first baby in 2012. How exciting!
