#BlackGirlMagic: Afro-Themed Wedding

#BlackGirlMagic made its way across the logarithms of social media again. Unlike most weddings in where the bride and her maids are topped with artificial hair, Nakyia kept it natural with the support of her bride's maids.

In the Beach side wedding that took place on the beautiful island country of Dominican Republic, kinks, fros, and naps is what made Nakyia pictures go viral instead of the beautiful beach and relaxing blue waters. Her pictures received thousands of shares and likes; she was even interviewed by BuzzFeed.com

After things sort of calmed down, Naykia took to Instagram to thank her followers; "we are beyond honored and humbled to have been seen, appreciated, and loved by so many...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.”

I am glad Nakyia did this. Her actions challenged the standards of beauty that believe natural hair is unfit for formal and elegant events. Nakyia did well and she did it fearlessly with no apologies. Below are Nakyia's wedding pictures. Enjoy!! Photo courtesy of Nakyia Whitty (@naturally_nakyia).
