How Edward & Bisola
by Edward
It all began in September 2007 as I started my third year at Clark Atlanta University in Atlanta, GA. I was the Vice-president of the African Student Association (ASA)  when I had my first interaction with Bisola who was attending our monthly meeting for the first time. I was able to tell from her name tag that she was Nigerian. This automatically generated an interest as it usually does when I meet any Nigerian. We exchanged the customary greetings and almost immediately I noticed there was something about her that was different. It was not only the manner she carried herself with quiet pride, elegance and grace or the rare humble, kind and hardworking spirit she possessed. I could not explain it and all I wanted was to get to know her a little more. She became an active member of ASA and I seized this opportunity to increase the level of my interaction with her. We went out on our first date on February 16th 2008 and we have been inseparable ever since.

Edward and I met in fall 2007 at an African Student Association general body meeting in college. After the meeting, I was interested in joining the organization so I was told to give my contact info to the Vice President which was Edward. When I first met him, he seemed very shy but friendly and had a huge smile on his face. After our first encounter, we hung out a lot and I began to realize he was hilarious, genuine, caring, very smart, selfless and a gentleman which is very hard to find in college (haha). Knowing this, I decided to sweep him off his feet and off of the dating scene! And we have been joined at the hip ever since.

The Proposal!
by Bisola
When Edward and I knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together,  we decided to take a 2.5 month pre-marital course prior to getting engaged. The morning of the second to last session, which was Sunday May 6th 2012, Edward said we were going to take a short surprise trip somewhere. After driving about an hour, I fell asleep and when I woke up, voila we were in Savannah! What a pleasant surprise I thought! He knows how much I love this city. We pulled into the parking lot of the historic Tybee Lighthouse (which was originally built in 1732). After we got out of the car, we found out the lighthouse was closed for the day but the manager said we could take a quick peak while she finished in the office and then we would have to come back down. We thanked her and walked up the 100+ steps on the spiral staircase. When we reached the top of the lighthouse, we were impressed with the stunning panoramic views of the city and nearby beach. After enjoying the views for about 15 minutes, Edward asked me to marry him with the exact ring I fell in love with 6 months prior and I started bawling. I was totally surprised. Edward also had a photographer at the top who took  pictures of us the entire time. It’s funny because it was actually forecasted to rain that day but the sun started to peak out of the clouds when we got to the top. Afterwords, Edward told me he had actually made arrangements to have the lighthouse opened for us after hours and hired the photographer to capture everything! It was a beautiful engagement and one I can relive any time through pictures.

Planning the Wedding
Bisola’s wedding dress was the first and only dress she tried on at the boutique. It was a trumpet silhouette with lace detail and a tiered organza train. The bust was adorned with real feathers, which was her favorite part of the dress – a perfect mix of romantic and modern. She knew it was the dress as soon as she saw myself in the mirror and I did not want to take the dress off. Bisola said, “I got REALLY excited because everything was coming together and I knew Edward would love me in the dress.” “Initially, I wanted Edward and all of his groomsmen to wear grey suits since it would be a lighter color for our summer wedding but Edward was very adamant about wearing a black suit. We finally compromised, which is one of the biggest lessons we’ve learned from the entire wedding planning process, and made an appointment to try on formal black tuxedos. When he tried it on, I absolutely fell in love with how he looked in a formal black tux and bow tie! I didn’t even want him to take it off.”

As the bride organised her wedding, she has some great tips to share.
“Stick together as a team while planning your wedding. Sometimes family and friends tend to offer and at times insist on implementing their ideas on your big day but as long as you always remember that this day is about you two and work as a team, then others will back down.”
“Attend a pre-marital course. Our course was very in depth – it brought us closer together and made us ask each other questions we never even thought of.”

It’s all in the details! See the lock on Bisola’s bouquet? Her groom had the key.

Bisola and Edward had so many special moments on their ceremony day – May 25th 2013 in Savannah, Georgia, the city the groom proposed in! The couple had the honor of being married by the groom’s father. It was a moment the newlyweds loved because it really symbolized the two families becoming one – and added a personal and cultural touch to the ceremony. Their wedding guests were so in awe, asking how they can have their fathers officiate their wedding ceremonies.

When the groom’s father said “I now pronounce you husband and wife” Edward immediately pulled Bisola in for a kiss. Since his father didn’t say “now you can kiss your bride,” they had to do it again. It was quite funny. And not to mention Edward had bright purple lipstick on his lips! LOL.

One of the groom’s biggest highlights was dancing with his mother to the song “Because You Love Me” by Celine Dion. The dance was a total surprise to his mum, and one she really enjoyed as well.

Bisola and Edward did not have a traditional wedding but they made sure they infused Nigerian culture into their wedding day by changing into royal purple and lavender aso-oke bought by the groom’s mom in Ikeja, Lagos.

BN wishes the couple the best in love, life and all the blessings of marriage.

    Daddy, your little baby girl has blossomed into a full grown woman so don’t be surprised. This is just the tip of the iceberg……….Edward will do justice to Bisola afterwards because it is part of the privileges one enjoys in marriage. *winks* http://media.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/BellaNaija_Nigerian_Weddings_Bisola_Edward_Yoruba_Bride_Edo_Groom_Fotos_By_Fola50.jpg

    I love the seating arrangement. This way everyone can see them when they’re dancing in the middle and people don’t move around too much clogging up pathways. Very nice.

    Thanks everyone..actually the officiant was my dad..I wanted to give my dad that honor and just didn’t want to get a “generic” pastor to officiate our wedding..plus my dad gets to remember that day for the rest of his life..
    And he got to wear a full Agbada..how many pastors have officiated a wedding in an agbada? Lol…

      Sweet of you to leave an explanatory comment, was wondering about the officiating minister too; I bet he ll never forget this.

      May your marriage be more beautiful in all ramifications than your wedding iJN. You both make a very beautiful couple too…

    This is so cool. It reminds me of me and my husband’s wedding. We chose a ‘not so typical’ pastor as well and also did counseling before we got engaged. I love how clean this wedding looked. no distracting decor at all

    To be honest, this is how I should’ve done my wedding. Just a handful of guests and guests that are really true friends to hubby and our families. I can count at least 20 -30 people that are true friends but Noooooooooooooooo…. my mum came wit her “Eh you have to invite tom, dick, harry, Nkechi, Adewale, Ekaite etc people I don’t know then she’d complain when they are rude to her at some point. Mcheeeeeewww. Congrats o jare to the newly wed. Very nice.

    Congratulations! Beautiful pictures and love the couple. Not that many people at the wedding which is not like the typical Nigerian wedding and party. May God bless your home and no devil will come between you in Jesus name.

    I think it’s cool that the groom’s dad joined them together…love it
