Matron of Honor
Sierra, Ashley, and Kiana all met in middle school, over 15 years ago. After living together freshman year of college, their connection strengthened. Both Scorpios, they bonded over their shared personality traits, big ideas, and affinity for leadership. Sierra's authenticity and loyalty are some of the best things Ashley loves about her.
Kiana is one of Ashley's oldest friends. After having met in middle school over 15 years ago, their friendship has withstood the test of time, bonding over life, love, and their shared philosophical approach to situations. She has been an incredible source of support and is one of the first people Ashley goes to for emotional, moral, and mental fortification.
Kristin and Ashley have known each other for about 15 years now. After meeting in high school, what initially seemed to be an initial apprehension for each other evolved into one of the most beautiful friendships in Ashley's life. They bonded over love, relationships, and navigating life. Kristin's strong devotion and sense of loyalty to her friends are what Ashley appreciates the most about her.
Father of the Bride
Ashley's dad is the sweetest, most amazing, Jamaican man, to walk the planet. He is her best friend, confidante, support, and rock. Always a goofball, he approaches life with grace, laughter, and a cheerful countenance. It is such a great honor and blessing to have him walk her down the aisle.
Guest of Honor
It's hard to believe that Ray and Ashley have only known each other for two years. Meeting at work, they went from happy hours to constant phone calls and conversations about everything from life to God and love. She has shown herself to be one of the most supportive, down-to-earth, wonderful friends in Ashley's life.
Meet Chinaza's Wedding Party
Nicole is the first best friend and one of the first friends that Chinaza made at Georgia Tech. Friends for almost 10 years now, there is very little that these two haven't been through together. In fact, she was Chinaza's emergency contact for about 7 or 8 years. We are so glad that Nicole agreed to officiate our wedding! Chinaza sees it as the perfect position to symbolize the closeness of their relationship.

Luisa and Chinaza met during the summer before freshman year but they didn't become close friends until 2016 when they ran into each other on campus. Both fiery personas, they bonded over everything from ambition, to life and culture, they became fast best friends and now can't even go a week without talking to each other.
Anna-Belle La Force
Anna-Belle and Chinaza became friends at Daquiri Factory in 2016 through Kinsey. They bonded over culture, school, both being international students navigating life in Atlanta, and so much more. As someone who has spent a significant amount of time with Chinaza over the past 5 years, Anna-Belle's part in celebrating this wonderful occasion is such a joy!
Christana and Chinaza were introduced through Kinsey as well at the Daquiri Factory in 2016. Since then, they have bonded over their shared Nigerian heritage, school, life, and so much more. They've traveled together, celebrated together, cried together, and when it came down to it, it was a no-brainer to include her in this special moment.
Guest of Honor
Kinsey is also one of Chinaza oldest best friends in Atlanta. After almost 10 years of friendship, he is one of the first people Chinaza calls when she needs support, kindness, and the best hugs. They've been through so much together and he's always a shining light in Chinaza's life.

Chinaza met Christina during her very first photoshoot 5 years ago. Christina did such an incredible job with Chinaza's makeup that she never forgot about it and when she knew was getting married, there was no one else she could think of that she would want to do the makeup for their wedding party.
