Adeola Magretta Olokunboro and Tayelolu Adetayo Omodara got married recently and the first thing that caught our attention was their stunning vintage
I met this wonderful being through a mutual friend in Maryland. Our first conversation was short as I thought he came with a lady. We exchanged contacts and every morning, his witty words of encouragement and prayers would wake me up.
Before my birthday, he sent some flowers with an inscription “I love you” and I realized I couldn’t do this life thing without this magnificent one. The rest, as they say, is history. Years after, he asked me to marry him and now we are here.
When I was little, I had dreamt of a fairy tale wedding hence the dress. I wanted a royalty-themed wedding as I am a princess marrying a prince. My fairytale/royalty theme was also illustrated in the
coloursof the day – gold and wine.
After so much deliberation, we decided on a 2-day celebration and what better way to make a statement than to get married on your birthday. We knew coming to Nigeria to celebrate with family will be the best option as getting everyone down to Maryland might be stressful.
I can sincerely say this period has been the most stressful and nerve-racking period of my whole life. The stress level was off the chart as I was prepping and planning 8000 miles afar. From getting approval from my Catholic diocese in Washington D.C. to getting approval from my parish in Nigeria, baptismal, marriage prep classes and other shenanigans.
