    congrats! they even lookalike!

    • Purpleicious Babe October 24, 2012 at 9:59 am

      Yep they do…. some couple share similarities either when they have spent longer time together or are married for ages.

      I remember when I was much much much younger, there was a couple I thought were brother and sister that was how much I thought they looked alike. Now that I am older, I see it and notice it everywhere…

      anyway they suit each other awwwwwwwwwww am sure they will have a sweet marriage. I pray it gets sweeter everyday..

    I was there, it was def one of the best weddings I’ve been to in quite some time (minus the overwhelming heat, but they clearly couldn’t help that). Congrats again to Lola and Wale, they really are an amazing couple!

    Notice how none of the bridesmaids have mongolian or sorry brazillian hair on or layers of scary make-up like we see in most Nigerian weddings…Also notice how the groom is uber excited to be getting married…Lord these are some of the things I desire!

  • phums October 23, 2012 at 6:14 pm

    This is simply exquisite…………..OMG…. But i think am tired of the usual wedding tradition thingy, like throwing of bouquet. Brides should start wishing their friends marital luck too by just sharing their flower. Saw a bride do it at her wedding and it was touching and cute……

  • phums October 23, 2012 at 6:28 pm

    i so luv love……speechless

  • Dolapo October 23, 2012 at 9:57 pm

  • dammylee October 31, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    First of all, I love the whole wedding concert. First time I will see a man take real charge of a wedding planning, so detail and excited. Men /grooms need to learn from this wedding concert. Its not only suppose to be the woman planning the wedding or getting into the details. Wish you guys a happy married life.

  • Cece November 2, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    Wow, this is a lovely couple. So simple, elegant and beautiful. It’s funny how they look so much alike. Her traditional outfit is so pretty, the colors are just perfect. I love how natural the women look, about time we African/Naija women embrace our natural beauty, it suits us better. One of my favorite weddings. May God bless their marriage.

  • Debs November 3, 2012 at 3:32 pm

  • O November 8, 2012 at 2:21 am

    Awwwwwwww! I so much love this video.. i have watched it like 4 times now n each time i do i love the feeling it brings, i just cant wait to have my own man who’ll even be more romantic than the groom here in this video. I loved the part where the groom wrote her a letter that morning of the wedding day telling her how lucky he is to have her, that made me cry! so romantic!! God bless their union…
