Love is in the air and it feels SO good! Ogechi and Samuel are a fun and prayerful couple in North Carolina.
We love everything about their wedding videos! From the bride and her bridesmaids rocking to Kukere choreography, to the bridesmaids praying and celebrating with the bride, these are gorgeous wedding videos all around by LynksDrivers Productions!
How They Met:
From the bride, Ogechi
It was September or October 2003. I had just gained admission into UNILAG. I was very nervous because it was a late admission and my course had switched three times. At first it was Pharmacy, then Computer science and finally Zoology (only in Naija lol). I didn’t know my way around the huge campus and I didn’t know where to begin with the insane registration process. Everyone I talked to had something negative to say about how late I was and my frustration only grew. I eventually decided to suck it up and proceed with registration. I headed to the copying center and boy was that line long. I decided to step away from the line and wait until the crowd dispersed. As I stepped out of the line, someone bumped into me and my papers went flying. I knelt to pick up the papers and the culprit decided to help me. He looked at me, and asked “are you okay? You look so troubled?”, it was Samuel, my future husband, though I didn’t know that then. (By the way we all call Sammie “teacher Chike” too much oyinbo…lol.) I just looked at him, and my eyes began to well up with tears. He looked down at my papers and said “late admission huh”? He immediately understood my frustration. I couldn’t say anything because I knew I would let it all out if I opened my mouth, and I wasn’t about to break down in front of a total stranger. He picked up all the papers and joined the growing crowd. He copied and arranged all my documents, paid for the copies and walked me to every registration site we could attend in one day. I was so relieved because I was finally making progress. He then told me he had to leave for class (in my mind I was like noooooo….lol), and I thanked him for everything. The next day, I was feeling a lot better as I sat outside a campus restaurant. I heard someone call my name; I stared at him, but could not remember who he was. He was so shocked, and he said “Ogechi, it is Sam, from yesterday”, and it all came to me. (I have a big problem remembering faces, but you would have thought I would remember this face!!). I felt so bad and I apologized and gave my two cents about not recognizing people. He joined me for lunch, and…… the rest is history!!! Sam and I had a ball in College. I moved into campus a couple of weeks later and we were inseparable; we practically did everything together. Sam was the best boyfriend and fiancé, and now he is the best husband any girl could ask for. Sam has a heart of gold; he puts everyone else before himself, and I am very lucky to be his wife.
