About Last Weekend: Sade’s & Pelumi’s Wedding

Igwe’s very good friend, Pelumi got married this past weekend. The traditional wedding was on Friday in Silver Spring, Maryland, but I didn’t take pictures. I was so tired. Igwe literally woke me up from sleep to go get dressed. Most of the event was in Yoruba, so I didn’t understand most of it, but I had an idea what was going on. I have attended too many traditional weddings to not know. Sade and Pelumi looked absolutely beautiful. I left Igwe at the event and came around 11:00 PM. Igwe was a groomsman, so he had to sleep at the hotel with the bridal party.

The good news is that I felt so much better the next day. Amazing what a good night’s sleep can do for you. I was able to take a few pictures at the wedding. Enjoy!

Nife was clearly sexually assaulting me

You think you know people, and then they sexually assault you at a wedding (and you like it, too). Hi Nife!

Happy married life, Sade and Pelumi! How was your weekend, my Sweet Potatoes?

P.S. The groom’s and groomsmen’s clothes were inspired by Prince William’s wedding attire. Neat, huh?
