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

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".
