It’s Friday and it is the 1st day in March 2013…A new month represents a new beginning, just like a wedding represents the start of a new lifetime of love and commitment. Olaitan Osholake and Akinade Eboda met in church 10 years ago. The future groom was leading the praise and worship session and his future bride felt an instant connection. She tells us “God was speaking to me so after service I approached him to start a conversation.” The soulmates have been inseparable since then.
On the 11th of February 2011, Olaitan was at home and though she had imagined and anticipated this momentous event, she was totally surprised by what happened next. Her beau Akinade came in and started giving a speech…she kept wondering – “what’s this about?” and then he was on his knees asking her to marry him! She started crying and of course, she said YES.
Olaitan and Akinade said “I Do” in their special autumn-inspired paradise! It was a dream come true as family and friends celebrated with the couple in style. The orange and cocoa tones created a warm and upscale ambiance which set the mood for the day. Olaitan was a beautiful bride in her stunning strapless lace dress with flower appliqué and crystal beading while Akinade looked sleek in his blue suit with black lapels paired with a striking bow-tie which matched his wife’s luxe bouquet. Tears fell from the bride’s eyes as she walked down the aisle with her father and saw her groom alongside his best man – their young son. From there, it was a day of bliss and celebration as every element of their wedding turned out even more beautiful than envisioned!
BN wishes Olaitan and Akinade a blessed life together filled with love and joy always.
