Respect the “FRO”! Nakyia Whitty and Davonte Davis aged 27 and 26 respectively, recently tied the knot in a small intimate beach wedding after dating for four years.
The internet went agog after Nakyia started posting pictures from their beach wedding, the images were picked up by another account and they went viral. People are obsessed with Nakyia and her bridesmaids’ flawless and free natural hair.
She told Buzzfeed that she was shocked when she saw how people reacted to her wedding photos, later adding, “I mean, we are beyond honored and humbled to have been seen, appreciated, and loved by so many,” she said.
Nakyia who started her natural hair journey four years ago also took to her instagram page to share her delight and astonishment at the way the pictures went viral and thanked everyone for showing her love.
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!!
Guys! I had no idea that my wedding day pictures would make such a splash on the social media outlets. I have had people share with me how they are or were afraid to wear their natural hair out and I’ve given them some sort of boost to want to wear their God given tresses and I would just like to say that I honestly was just getting married with who and what I love and appreciate in mind for MY photo album. MY memories. MY big day. In no way was I ever thinking I would be seen by or touch so many, but in light of believing that God makes no mistakes. I want to let everyone know how blessed I feel to be a blessing to so many.
