The classic wedding union between Kemi Coker and Niyi Aderinokun was full of “glam” all the way- from the bride arriving in style in a grand style, to various exquisite change of outfits with matching Jimmy Choo shoes and musical performance by KWAM1, the guests could not just get enough of this elegant, upscale and stylish wedding. The bride Kemi Coker, an epitome of beauty, a very quiet, reserved and confident lady was full of smiles throughout the day. The show of love and chemistry between the couple could not be overlooked as the couple continuously showed so much affection to each other at every opportunity throughout their wedding day.
This invite-only and well-coordinated wedding was just one of a kind with Houston Police (HPD) officers ensuring that the venue was secured, while King Wasiu (Kwam1) performed live for the couple and their guests till 5am in the morning of Sept 7, 2012. Golden Icons was waiting on the red carpet outside, as the bride ‘Kemi’ arrived in a flashing light white Bentley, alongside with the international Gele Maestro – Segun Gele, waiting to receive the bride and ensure that her make-up was on-point.
After the wedding ceremony, we asked the Gele Maestro ‘Segun Gele’ about his experience with this bride, he responded: “Earlier in the year I got a call from Kemi requesting my service for her wedding; I already had a prior booking which I explained to her but she wasn’t ready to take NO for an answer so I told her to be patient with me while I confirm the time schedule with my Priority bride which wasn’t easy as the church haven’t approved her time slot.
2 months later I got a call again, devastated at her voice so I called and got a confirmed time which will accommodate me doing her wedding and that was it.
No prior consultation, no hassle and no stress, she just had so much confidence in me and that confidence was not betrayed. We met at the Highbrow Hilton Westchase Hotel where she got her glam on.
From her Crystal White Asooke buba embellished with Freshwater Pearls to her White and Gold Iro, Ipele and Iborun, to her Custom hand fan, adorned with her Swarovski Crystal Pearl white/Silver shoe and matching purse by Jimmy Choo to the Gold & Mother of Pearl choker necklace with matching earrings and bracelet, Crowning it with an All White Chunky Coral bead set by Dabira Jewelry gave her the Immaculate Erelu look she dreamt of.
Thinking that was all the pizazz, her 2nd change was breathtaking as she stepped out in Burnt Orange and Coffee Brown accessorizing with Gold Jimmy Choo shoe and purse then her 3rd Outfit killed it, designed by House of Maufechi. Classic Silver, Gold and Pewter outfit and of course with her 3rd pair of Jimmy Choo Shoes and purse in Silver.
One thing I loved the most about Kemi was giving me a FREE HAND with her makeup and gele look all through her 3 outfit changes without changing anything that shows how confident she is as a person.
Congratulations Niyi and Kemi”
