My friend Titi's wedding

Went to Houston for my friend's wedding which was on the 10th of April. I've known Titi since I was 10years old (7th grade). We went to boarding school together, and both moves to the United States at 16yrs  after graduating high school. We used to be super close, but it's been almost a decade, we're still cool friends though not as close as besties like when we we're kids, we still love each other.
Getting Ready

Me in the Bridal Room

Makeup was by HauteFaces in Houston, TX

Love these 2 pictures!!!!!!!! woot woot for my skills & pretty bride helped a bit lol

After experiencing 6 years with a lovely group of guys and girls, you have a strong bond, and you don't need to talk everyday to validate your friendship. I have friends I haven't spoken to for over 5 years from High School and when they are in the States or Atlanta they hit me up, and we pick up right were we stopped.

For some reason I didn't RSVP until a week before the wedding. Trust, once Titi sent me a bbm message, I RSVP'd booked my ticket the next day or so & stopped slacking.

I had a blast, I got to see some people I haven't seen in 10+ years, like Charlotte my birthday mate (date, year everything), Afam 10 yrs, Yvonne one of my besties (6years, we talk everyday but she's demoted from official bestfriend to "one of" because she went M.I.A for a few months). It was almost like a mini reunion.

My favorite picture from the reception!!! (smh he posed twice & I messed up the settings)

Get It. (I have a video 2 posts back)

Congratulations Titi & DJ: Lovely couple

I wanted to practice my manual photography, see if I could figure out my flash at the reception etc. I freaked out when my setting weren't good at the reception, but got encouragement from the people on my table, and everything turned out cool. Had a blast in Houston: so glad I met so many cool people, I partied Friday, and Sunday after the wedding (Saturday I was sick the whole day and felt i was going to pass out).
My cool reception table (Jenny, Yewande, & Liafis are on my right missing from the picture) (left 2 engaged, how romantic!)

I wasn't bothered until after the fact, and I was like darn it, I missed a moment of history. Eitherways I really really want to watch the Lifetime Network movie on them, I hope it's good, I need to check what time it comes on again & the real pictures Ive seen on everyone's blackberry messenger of their first kiss, looked EPIC!!!!!!!!!!!
