50 Shades of Yellow: Lizondo and Friday’s Yellow-Themed Wedding under Abuja Sunset

Liz and Friday’s Nigerian wedding, which took place on a grassy outdoor venue, was incredibly elegant and colourful.

This yellow-themed Nigerian wedding is one that is full of elegant inspiration and copy-worthy ideas for stylish brides-to-be. There’s a touch of yellow in almost every wedding element, it’s not ‘shouting’ but rather elegantly combined with the colours of the grassy surroundings and outfits of the couple and their wedding party – and the result is a very pleasant ambiance and gorgeous picture-perfect backdrops. This couple’s outdoor wedding venue decoration is simply breathtaking. Would you be surprised if I told you that the bride is an interior designer, and she hired the very best wedding vendors to bring her wedding vision to life. So, let me introduce you to today’s real-life couple – Lizondo Onoja (bride) and Friday Haruna (groom).  Read on for their ‘how we met’ story and see their gorgeous wedding photos below.

If you always hated yellow, the pictures below will make you change your mind – maybe, you just didn’t know how to combine it like Lizondo and Friday did in their wedding styling and design.

*The bride, Liz, sent me her wedding story and pictures in mid-October. If you’d like to see your wedding on this blog, click here to contact us – it’s free.

How They First Met

As the bride, Liz, puts it, theirs is a story of “business acquaintances turned lovers, and now married”.  That ‘one can find love in the most unusual places’ is so true for this couple – it was love at first sight for him, at a business. So, Liz’s first meeting with Friday (now her husband) was to discuss business, but then when the bobo first sighted her, he fell in love – and, according to Liz,  his discussion took a new turn.

Here’s the bride’s story of  how they first met:

Our first meeting was about business but it turned into a love discussion, with him professing love for me.  It took me by surprise; at first I thought he was joking. After our meeting he gifted me an oversize dress and a knock-off handbag.  (laughing: I now have lots of fitted dresses and original handbags). –Bride, Liz

But for Liz, it wasn’t love at first sight.

She says: He went back to his base and we started talking. Gradually, I started falling for him.

On how their love affair turned into marriage proposal, Liz says: We lost contact for a year. Then he got back in touch, and asked me to marry him.

Although they had the most amazing wedding venue, the high point of their wedding day was the blessings of being surrounded and supported by the people that cared for them, as they embarked on the journey of marriage. The happy faces of Liz’s bridesmaids and groomsmen is golden.

Their Wedding Venue Decoration

Liz and Friday’s venue had an amazing outdoor landscape – and the décor vendor’s skills brought out the beauty of the natural, grassy surroundings. Venue decoration was simple, yet classy, because the surroundings were naturally beautiful. The walkways, the couple’s seating area and the guests area and were accented and adorned with a dash of yellow flowers. Did you see the gorgeous flower backdrop that almost reminds me of Kim Kardarshian and Kanye’s wedding photo backdrop?
