The groom’s family is from Sierra Guinea and Ghana, and they incorporated traditional African traditions, first they prayed for their ancestors to come join them . Afterwards the brothers and the man had to make a list of the groom and bride qualities and they had to discuss and go over these and decide if they would allow the marriage, once that it was decided that it would be allowed they were married! My favorite part was jumping the broom, a tradition that marks the beginning of a new couple making a home together- a symbol of the sweeping away of the old and the welcoming of the new!
The bride’s family was incredibly and full of sweet words for their toasts, which were emotional and so funny as well.
The night ended with a wonderful presentation by live band BlueWater Kings , they were so awesome!
Thank you A&F for welcoming into your day!
