Bride: Angela Njoku
Groom: IK Odezulu
Wedding date: May 25, 2013
Wedding location: Signature Manor, Sugarland, TX
“We both travelled from different states to Detroit, Michigan to attend the end of year watch night service (Dec 31st, 2013) and also to see my Spiritual Father and Pastor. There, he arranged with my sister and some friends – and took us all to a nice restaurant for dinner. When it was time for desert, the waitress came out with some cheesecake with strawberries and the wordings in strawberry syrup “will you marry me?” Then he got on his one knee and popped the most beautiful ring. After I said, “Yes”, he cried.”
The bride on her wedding style…
[Dress is from] LaMerite Bridal Shops in St Louis. I had gone to other bridal shops and was told it was too late to get my dress. He still got me my perfect dress. I went [wedding dress shopping] with my aunt Bose and very good friend, Ngozi Obichukwu, and I tried about 6 dresses. The 2nd one was the ‘yes’ dress. It had the longest and most beautiful train. There was also a lot of bling on top part of the dress. It was lovely!
Description from the bride…
We were brought in by a white Cinderella carriage with 2 royal white horses which also took us out. People were taking pictures of us, greeting and waving to us when we passed by their homes. The wedding guests were ecstatic!
This same carriage was the theme of our wedding invitation and place cards. A monogram of the carriage was also created on the dance floor amidst the pink and champagne LED light in the reception hall. Wedding favors were M&M’s with our picture placed in paper carriages with the same theme colors. There was ice cream from Marble Slab to keep the sugar fans happy. There was child care for the little ones and they had fun with all the 8 flavors and 8 toppings available.
Our MC, Comedian Wamilele from California, one of Nigeria’s funniest kept the crowd laughing. There was not a dull moment, he was awesome!
The cake was a 5-tier masterpiece with 7 flavors in vintage pink of course with floral arrangements to match the rest of the floral arrangements in the room. It was designed by ‘A Conceal Affair’, because the bride was out with IK and her father during the cake designing appointment (It got so stressful, I had to release steam). Great job, Shade of Conceal.
