Going gray is not easy for everyone. While it can happen at any age, many people associate white hair as a sign of getting older. One beautiful bride, however, is proving that gray hair is just as stunning as any other color and that it's something to be proud of. Kadeja Jackson Baker went viral on TikTok for her gorgeous wedding look that featured her natural gray locks.

Miami-based makeup artist Tia Codrington documented the wedding transformation in a video that garnered over 2 million views. Apparently, Baker had been going gray since she was 16 and wanted to embrace her natural beauty on her special day. So, Codrington arranged Baker's silver hair into a soft updo decorated with a sparkly silver hair clip and added a glamorous makeup look.

People on TikTok lauded Baker's bridal beauty, particularly her gray hair.  “I did not expect for the responses to be as plentiful as I look at myself in the mirror every day and did not think it was that big of a deal that I was embracing my natural hair and look,” she said of the responses, which she called overwhelming “in a good way.”

In a subsequent TikTok video, you can see Baker wear her hair fully down as she dances with her husband after the wedding. The bride was not on any social media prior to the wedding but has since created an Instagram account where people can see the entire look. She was even asked to do an interview for NBC6, where her gorgeous silver locks are on full display.
