I'm loving all of these photos friends and family have captured!! I had a vision for my wedding and what was for Nakyia and Jay. Not anyone else and in the end I have to say everything exceeded what I could've imagined, and my expectations were pretty high might I add, I mean it is a special moment for us! Ultimately, I'm elated to have married my best friend with our family and friends surrounding us in the most beautiful way we could.... Our way. I have to stop posting! Lol! These aren't even the professionals. These are iPhone pics from family and friends standing by! If these came out this beautiful I can't imagine what the photographer captured!! #davisday61116 #beachwedding #puntacana #thisishardrockpc #natural #bride #bridesmaids #destinationweddings #blackloveweddings #alfredangelobride @shescharissmatic @kalawhitty

Speaking to Buzzfeed about the unexpected reception the photos have had, Nakiya said: "I mean, we are beyond honored and humbled to have been seen, appreciated, and loved by so many".
Adding why it was so important for her to wear her hair in all its natural glory, she explained: "Wearing my natural hair signifies who I am as a black woman, who God created me to be. I love my natural tresses. I wasn’t always natural, but when I started this journey I began to appreciate and love what I was born with".
Slay all day, Nakyia! ♥
