Unique and Seku were married on July 15 with a ceremony and reception at the Pelham Bay & Split Rock Golf Courses. The venue is actually located in New York City’s largest public park, Pelham Bay, in the Bronx.
The couple had an evening wedding, and I met up with Unique and her bridesmaids and spent some time with them as they finished getting ready. I connected with Seku and his groomsmen for some portraits as well. Then, Unique and Seku chose to have a quick first-look shoot before the festivies began.
The ceremony was held outdoors under the venue’s gorgeous gazebo. I loved the incredibly sweet moment of Seku walking his mom to her seat, followed by Unique escorted by her parents down the aisle.
Unique and Seku incorporated traditional touches into their wedding day and paid homage to their African-American background by jumping the broom at the end of the ceremony.
From the ceremony, we all moved right into the reception.
My favorite part of the evening was capturing the truly emotional moment when Seku got all choked up during his reception speech. There was not a dry eye in the house!
I loved watching the happy couple having some fun dancing together at their reception. In fact, I got some really great reception party shots. Unique and Seku had such a fun group of guests who were a blast on the dance floor.
Thank you so much Unique and Seku for sharing your special day with me! I love remembering this beautiful summer wedding.
