#50A - A Chapel2Chapel Wedding

The morning of the wedding I woke up in this incredible state of peace,
despite getting absolutely no sleep the night before.
A lot of people say the day goes by so quickly. Take it all in, live in the moment.
I was surprised at how aware I felt in every moment.
Things never felt rushed, crazy, or chaotic.
Just this incredible cloud of love that surrounded me
from the moment I woke up, to the second I went to sleep beside my new husband.
It was truly and incredible and unforgettable day. - K

We decided to live tweet our wedding day for those who were unable to join us.

In the days leading up to the wedding,
I beeeegged and pleaded for Kellie to do a first look with me.
She would NOT budge.

So when our photographer pulled me to the side and said,
"Don't turn around until I tell you to,"
I almost passed out upon realizing what was happening.
Easily my favorite part of the entire day.
Cried like a baby, y'all.

Though we didn't have any Carolina 'nalia in our decorations,
we did try to keep everything in house as much as possible!
Our hostess, videographers, DJ, singer, and both bakeries
were all people we went to school with or met while at UNC!
Oh, and Kelz designed ALL the stationary herself, from the escort cards to the candy table bags!

Y'all KNOW we had to come in to some JEEZY, "I Do".
And Tyler sang his face off for our first dance: 
Luther x Beyonce, "The Closer I Get To You".
All love!

As we discussed in a previous post,
Kellie is African-American quite literally. 
Her mom is a native Tar Heel, while her dad is from Nigeria. 
So our wedding wasn't just a combining of two families,
but a mix of two cultures, also.
We had family travel from Vegas, NYC, Nigeria, and everywhere in between to share in our day!

It was important for us to incorporate traditional Nigerian elements in our wedding:
Handmade clothing that was gifted to us from her aunt and uncle from Abuja,
and a celebratory custom known as a spray.
It was a super fun, pretty surreal moment during our ceremony!
All the pictures in the world wouldn't do it justice!

Be on the look out for the video, y'all!
Thanks again,
Love, Trey and Kellie
