African Wedding in LA

African Wedding at Rancho Las Lomas

Kristine and Igbagbo (IGB)’s african wedding in LA, brought a winter wonderland to life. The couple incorporated stunning pops of Red’s thought their night such as red bridesmaid dresses, winter-inspired florals, and the bride wore a gorgeous bright red shall to the reception. Kristy yhen changed into traditional wedding attire to celebrate IGB’s cultural and blending of their families.

We loved the wintery touches of red they incorporated for the month of December. The venue features small touches of holiday decor in red and gold by blending a touch of their own decor, they brought the venue’s decor to life. All the tones blended together beautifully!

The ceremony was placed at the Teatro, which featured a gorgeous arch of florals and dainty string lights. Cocktail hour and reception followed after at the Grand Salon which overlooked a peaceful stream from all of the winter rains. Kristine was excited to incorporate her career of being a teacher with her guests by adding hints of her passion throughout the night, such as a periodic table for a seating chart, test tubes of hot-coco, and a word search about the couples love! To complete the African Wedding at Rancho Las Lomas, as the night went on, IGB incorporated his Nigerian culture with tons of Nigerian dancing with the help of Extreme DJ Services and a change into traditional Nigerian garb from the couple! We had such an amazing time celebrating Kristine and IGB’s love for one another. We were honored to be apart of your special day!
