Saba & Jakip
Of all the weddings i have filmed none have been quite this festive. Saba and Jakip are a wonderful Ethiopian couple who's wedding day was filled with so much love and tradition. There was a celebration at the family's home the morning of the wedding which essentially blocked off their street but the neighbors didn't seem to mind. Not only were there tons of people at their home there was also tons of great food which unfortunately i didn't get a chance to taste. After the informal ceremony and dancing throughout the morning the couple then headed to Victory World Church for the traditional ceremony where they were surrounded by loving friends and family. Later in the day the couple met at the Academy of Medicine for the reception where the sister of the groom sang a song she wrote for the couple, the groom surprised the bride by singing John Legend's All of Me followed by tons of dancing the night away. My words don't quite do their day justice so i hope their wedding reel captures the experience, enjoy.
