How LamzOaks Helped One Couple Pull of their Nigerian Wedding
Launched only a few months ago, LamzOaks has already helped a number of couples to organize their African Wedding. In this post, we share with you how one couple, Temi and Osifo, used our vendor platform service to coordinate and pull off their spectacular Nigerian Wedding.
Temi and Osifo live in New York but their wedding was hosted in Dallas Texas. The couple had a traditional Nigerian ceremony and a westernized wedding ceremony, plus a reception which highlighted their Nigerian culture. They catered for over 400 guests.
The couple already had an idea of the services they wanted, so it really wasn’t difficult to select the service providers that would help materialize their dream wedding. First on their list was Flawless Touch Makeover. This vendor offers make up and head tie services because no Nigerian bride is fully dressed until she has her head tie on.
For the decor and floral arrangements, they used Flora Eventi- event design specialists for African weddings. As you can see from the photos, this vendor did a spectacular job with the decorations. They captured the theme of the wedding perfectly. Videography was provided by Inspired Effects. This vendor has a reputation for capturing beautiful timeless moments. And they did just that at Temi and Osifo’s wedding.
And the food? Oh, I had to leave that for last. Well, that was provided by Kemi’s Kitchen and Yemsade Catering. Together these caterers provided sumptuous, tantalising homemade African dishes that filled Temi and Osifo’s guests with waves of nostalgia. To top that off, FS Fruits & Arrangements provided an aesthetic display of a variety of fruits that were equally delicious. The arrangement looked so good, it seemed wrong to eat any of it. But it managed to serve its purpose to delight the eyes and the stomach.
When we first launched LamzOaks, there were just a handful of vendors on the site. We had seventeen categories. In some categories, there was only one vendor- others had none. Today we have over 50 vendors and the number is expected to grow in the coming months. Like Temi and Osifo, if you harbor dreams of a flawless Nigerian wedding, then LamzOaks is the perfect place to start.
Thanks to all our vendors for pulling off this gorgeous wedding!
