Cynthia & Rodrick – Part II {Somerset, NJ}

I know you all are tired of hearing me “talk” so I’m switching things up a bit. Today we have a guest blogger, Liz who is going to walk us through the beautiful wedding day of her sister, Cynthia and now brother-in-law Rodrick. This is a 2-part series as I featured Cynthia & Rodrick’s Nigerian wedding last week. Special thanks to Ellie M. Photography for sending the pictures over!

Hi Everyone,
 
I’m Liz and I’m honored to be writing this post about Cynthia & Rodrick’s wedding. As Cynthia’s little sister and maid-of-honor I’ve been able to experience their love, relationship, and wedding planning in a very real & personal way.

I still remember the day that Rodrick called me and told me he planned to propose to my sister. I couldn’t believe it – my only sister, my big sister, the one I spent plenty of days following after, pestering, and admiring was going to be a bride…a wife. (And a beautiful bride she was, if I may say so myself.) :)

Cynthia & Rodrick {Long Island City, NY}

The bride for today’s wedding is not wearing the traditional white gown that many of us are used to. You won’t find a bouquet toss or 3-tier cake in this post. Instead, thanks to Ellie M. Photography, we’ll be taking a little virtual  journey to relish in the uniqueness of Cynthia & Rodrick’s Nigerian ceremony, formally called the  Igba Nkwu (pronounced E ba un ku wayi).  

Cynthia is a New York native and Rodrick is originally from North Carolina. They first met in Grand Central Station where Rodrick also proposed.
