What woman wouldn’t want to spend a day strolling the streets of Paris with the love of their life! What could top that? Well, how about getting a surprise proposal from your love in front of the historic Notre Dame Cathedral. Oh la la indeed! Groom to be Nexus, pulled off the perfect proposal by telling Ijeoma that they were going on a tour of Paris and that the man accompanying them was just a tour guide. However, when he proposed their “tour guide,” who was really a professional photographer, pulled out his camera and captured every beautiful moment. Afterward, the couple did a three hour photo shoot throughout the city, visiting the Louvre, Le Pont des Arts (also known as the “Love Lock” bridge) and the Place de la Concorde! Does it get anymore romantic?! Their excitement shines in every picture taken by Antoine Monfajon Photographe. We wish Ijeoma and Nexus all the best, and we look forward to seeing pictures from their summer 2015 nuptials.
- Bride to be: Ijeoma Umenyiora- Office manager and business owner
- Groom to be: Nexus Sea- Attorney
- Wedding Date: 8/22/2015
How They Met
We met over three years ago at the MOMA in NYC. We’ve only been dating for six months but have been good friends for three years prior. He proposed on our sixth month anniversary. He came up with the idea of celebrating our anniversary in Paris. After an elegant lunch at Laperouse, in the heart of Paris, he told me he hired a private tour guide to show us around the city. Our first stop was the Notre Dame Cathedral. We went in, prayed, and as soon as we walked out, he proposed right outside the church. I was very surprised, and it turned out that our “tour guide” was actually a photographer who he hired to capture the moment. It was lots of fun and I loved every moment. Thereafter we went on a three hour photo shoot throughout the city. We took pictures at the Louvre, Place de la Concorde, and Le Pont des Arts. It was great.
What the Couple is Looking Forward To
Spending forever together and celebrating our love with those that love us the most.
