Bride: Angela Njoku
Groom: IK Odezulu
Wedding date: May 25 2013
Wedding Location: Signature Manor, Sugarland, TX

From the Bride
Proposal
We both travelled from different states to Detroit, Michigan to attend the end of year watch night service (Dec 31st 2012) 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.

Planning
I live in St Louis and worked up to a week before the wedding. It was mad planning at first but I had a fabulous wedding planner, A Conceal Affair, she helped pull it through – it was beautiful and care free in the end.

Wedding Details
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 that 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’. Great job, Shade of Conceal!

Special Moments
When I danced with my dad at the reception, he got down ‘to the floor’ to the grooves of a Nigerian pop song. I was so surprised, I watched him for a minute before I got dancing.

I had not seen my dad in over 10 years! He lives in Nigeria and I live in the US; I had been so busy with school and work, I had not travelled to Nigeria in over 10 years. Also my mum comes to visit us about twice or three times a year.

Needless to say, the US embassy denied him a visa to come for the wedding the first time he applied, but later granted it after more thorough evaluation. I cried when I first saw him in Houston.

    I have to say the wedding guests dancing stole my attention. Reminds me of when I attended a Naija event here with my non-Nigerian friend, it got to the part where folks were being sprayed money while dancing. She was curious and asked me what it was all about. That caught me off guard bc I have always been used to people getting sprayed while on the dance floor. My response…they are just showing appreciation. Her response…are they not offended bc that is synonymous with strippers. That really cracked me up!

    When I heard carriage, pink theme, I thought over-the-top wedding but I was pleasantly surprised.

    This is the most classy, tasteful carriage-pink-themed wedding I’ve ever seen. Kudos to u and your planner. The dress also fits the bride perfectly

    My eyes got misty and I got a frog in my throat when I got to the part where you said you hadn’t seen your Dad in 10 years…However much we grow up, however independent we are, we are always and will continue to be ‘daddy’s little girl!’…Lovely wedding by the way…May you have a messy house (Hausa prayer meaning ‘May you have lots of children’)…

    I am having the same issue with getting my mother over here for my wedding. She was just denied. Anyone know the bride personally or know how she got them to reconsider?
