Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA.0513 - LL_Majestic_Downtown_Los_Angeles_Wedding_PhotographyFunlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya‘s paths crossed many times before they fell in love.

They attended the same primary school. When Lola graduated to Queen’s College, Lade went on to King’s College, and on it went until they ended up both schooling in the States before they became friends on hi5 … then the rest, as they say, is history.

After an unforgettable proposal on the highest floor in the tallest free standing observation tower in the United States – in Stratosphere Tower, Las Vegas – their wedding at premiere The Majestic Downtown in Los Angeles, California, USA was the stuff little girls’ dreams are made of.

BellaNaija Weddings wishes Lola and Lade the best of married life as One.

Enjoy & be inspired!

How We Met
by the Bride, Funlola
We probably first laid eyes on each other some 20 years ago..LOL!Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA

We both attended Corona School, Gbagada, Lagos and this is where we initially knew of each other and nothing more.

I went on to Queen’s College, Yaba while Molade attended King’s College, Lagos. In those years, we had no contact and barely remembered that each other person existed.Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA 5

Fast-forward to 2005, we were both freshmen in 2 different universities in the U.S. separated by at least 2000 miles. One day while I was bored on hi5 (remember hi5?!), I came across Molade’s profile and hit him up.Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA 4 We begun talking and nurtured a friendship that grew slowly into an affectionate relationship. This blossomed over the years into a deep, passionate love.Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA 3

We had lived in separate states for several years as our educational and professional careers developed culminating in the both of us settling down in California.

The Proposal
by the Groom, Molade
It happened on May 4, 2013 at 12:15 pm in Las Vegas, Nevada, 8 years after our love begun. We both decided that we wanted a break from work in Los Angeles.Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA 8

My work as a surgery resident is incredibly demanding requiring work during most weekends, I had everything planned out for how I wanted this day to go. Funlola thought she was just going to Vegas for a quick, fun trip with the boo!Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA 6 Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA 7I had everything planned out from the exact location, timing, setting, and of course the ring, which I had to hide from her for weeks! She was completely clueless as to my intentions and was caught completely off guard.Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA 9

We ‘decided’ to take a tour of the Stratosphere Tower and head all the way to the top of the building. On the highest floor, I began my pitch for Funlola’s hand in marriage, ending with me getting on one knee and confidently asking her to marry me.Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA 11

Funlola was engulfed in emotion and mumbled, ‘Yes’. It was a truly special moment that we would both remember till our last days.

Oh, and the ring was absolutely beautiful. It was exactly what she had wanted, just perfect! The look on her face was priceless. I couldn’t be happier. It was one of those moments you wish you could relive over again.Funlola Agbi & Molade Maurice-Diya | BellaNaija Weddings January 2015 | Yoruba Nigerian Wedding in Los Angeles, California, USA 10

Advice from the Couple
– Get a wedding planner, if possible
– Start planning early
– Brides, always involve the groom
– Don’t feel pressured to use a vendor because they are family members/friends
– Pre-marriage counseling is extremely important
– Remember to pray and put God first
– Lastly, enjoy your day! Don’t stress out when things don’t go as planned on the big day!

    Too sweet. Too beautiful. Congrats. The good old combo tends to work well – primary school mates + OGQC/OBKC.

    A friend of Soji their eldest brother. So sad to hear their mother passed on BN. He is truly a good and pleasant guy. Goodluck to the newly weds as he used to talk so fondly of his little brother and sister. I hope the new additions to your family keep the peace and foster unity. Happy married life. 🙂
