Alexis and Jarrett Tie the Knot and Jump the Broom

A happy wedding celebration.  Alexis and Jarrett exchanged vows and rings in a beautiful ceremony, witnessed by family and friends. They were declared husband and wife………..

then they jumped the broom  (the bride’s mother had decorated it in the wedding colors)

Alexis and Jarrett granted me permission to post photos from their Saturday March 31st wedding.

Wishing them every happiness!

(You might remember the Christmas party of Pastor Garland (his mother) when I photographed their church dinner. They’re in that picture too!)

  6. Beautiful couple, may their union be wonderfully blessed! Re: jumping the broom – I had no idea it was an African tradition! Perhaps West African? It is not done here in South Africa or in Zambia where I was born. I do know of it in Gypsy lore. Very interesting
