Chika & Ryan’s Nigerian & American Wedding in Detroit

They say that the strongest relationships are the ones that have been tested by fire. The dark nights of the soul are tearful places to be.

I was listening to a sermon at a black church once, something musical that you would be hard-pressed to find in a white congregation. The pastor spoke in a cadence, and the congregation responded in rhythm. He sung out, line by line, all the different kinds of hardships you could imagine. But he ended each woe with a thundering, “BUT GOD!!…” and the congregation echoed in response.

“But God…!” this is what Chika and Ryan rested upon. They waited for the redemption that followed. They fought for the sun to rise.

This was a celebration of that dawn. This was a party, for the joy that came in the morning.

I did shoot a few images with my Holga during the wedding. (Emphasis on “a few”.) It’s hard to remember to shoot with the other camera when I’m focused on my main cameras, ya know? Anyways, I just sent the film off today. Depending on how they turn out, I might post them :)

Hey Chuck! Love them! Thanks SO much for capturing this day for us! Hope you had fun too!

Ryan and Chika, you look so-o-o happy in these photos. I love you and am praying God’s continued blessing on you and in your marriage.

Where are you living? Do you both teach?

Sometime when you’re on Latson Road, I would love to have you stop by and would like to meet you, Chika.

Ryan, you may know I remarried Mr. Line and we are very happy. Cristy’s son, our Grandson Nathan also lives with us. You may remember him from about 3-6 years old. He’s now 17, 18 next month.

My brother in TN died on Thursday Sept. 30, so we went to his funeral service, left on Sat and returned on Mon.

Sorry we missed your wedding. It looks like it was awesome.

WOW. This almost made me cry, so beautiful! I haven’t seen Ryan since the Wheaton days when he had his dreads, and I was so surprised to see that gentle face again out of the blue…now with a beautiful woman! How wonderful.
