Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15980_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_From an epic proposal in NYC, to a pre-wedding shoot in Las Vegas, engagement in Ibadan and a grand finale – the white wedding in Dubai, Dami & Wale‘s wedding journey was truly dazzling.

Wale asked Dami to be his wife in August 2014, in such an unforgettable way! He hired a flash mob to dance to On Top Your Matter in Times Square, New York City. Here’s the video – click here for the full feature.

A year later – this August, the couple had their engagement in the bustling city of Ibadan, then got married in September at an outdoor ceremony at the deluxe five star Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach.

The Love Story
“Sometimes, God just smiles at you and grants you a precious gift you didn’t even ask for. It’s beautiful to have someone that gets me inside out, loves me unconditionally, has my best interest at heart, and constantly challenges me to be a better person” – Wale, the groom

Dateline
10th September, 2013 – Wale arrives Nigeria for the first time in 11 years. A serious relationship is the last thing on his mind.

12th September, 2013 – Wale’s brother, introduces Dami and Wale to one another. They get along like a house on fire.

13th September, 2013 – Wale and Dami’s first date. Location: a peppersoup joint in Surulere, Lagos. Also in attendance were their friends Banky, Fola, and Morakinyo. Wale invites Dami on another date.

14th September, 2013 – Dami meets Wale at a wedding he is hosting. Even though there are other people at the party, Dami and Wale zone into one another, enjoying each other’s company and chatting intensely for about 3 hours.

16th September, 2013 – Dami and Wale’s first solo date.

17th, 18th, 21st, 22nd September, 2013 – More solo dates, punctuated by long phone calls lasting late into the night.

23rd September, 2013 – Wale returns to the US. Wale and Dami agree to keep things open and see how things go after Wale’s departure. They are both reluctant to commit to a long distance relationship.

17th October, 2013 – Many Skype calls, voice calls and instant messages later, with tears of joy in his eyes, Wale asks Dami to be his girlfriend. Dami accepts. She has no doubt this is “The One”.

17th December, 2014 – Dami lands at the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, Georgia, USA to meet Wale, for the first time in three months. Wale is waiting with open arms and a bouquet of flowers. He literally sweeps Dami off her feet as they hug. Dami and Wale spend three weeks together over the Christmas holidays – their best time ever. By the time Dami is returning to Nigeria, they both know in their hearts that they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.

The rest is history…

Advice from the Newlyweds – budget, forgive and delegate!

1. Know what you want but know what your budget can cover. Hard as it is, the biggest favour you can do for yourself as you start your new life is to stick to a budget.

2. Still on budgeting, make cost projections for everything imaginable. We even included transportation and feeding in our budget. As a result, incidentals were almost non-existent and we were able to keep track of exactly how much we were spending.

3. Keep Calm. A friend of mine told me, “your wedding will teach you a new level of forgiveness”. It’s true! People will upset you, that’s a staple. But DO NOT take things to heart. Seriously, let it go and focus on happier things, which I am sure there will be a lot of.

4. Get a wedding planner you can trust completely.

BellaNaija Weddings wishes Dami & Wale a lifetime filled with joy and love.

So I went for an Angelina Faccenda mermaid dress with lots of embellishments on the bodice and lots of ruffles at the bottom. I bought my dress online, by the way. I went to stores to try on dresses for sizing, then I went online and bought this dress I’d had my eyes on for months. Matter of fact, I did most of my shopping for my wedding online. It saved me time, stress, money, and I was exposed to lots of options.”Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14091_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14415_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-11323_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-13195_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-13771_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-13844_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14277_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14649_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14682_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14407_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14423_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14504_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14590_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14916_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15086_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15158_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15167_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15218_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15273_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15311_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15318_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15341_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15366_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15544_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15557_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15824_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-15980_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-16026_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-Nigerian-White-Wedding-Dubai-16382_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-Nigerian-White-Wedding-Dubai-16387_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-16403_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-16448_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-16508_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-17156_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-16813_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-17059_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-17211_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-17126_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-17115_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-16704_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-16565_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14748_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-14578_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-16355_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-17611_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-17888_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-17649_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-18379_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-18386_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_ Dami-and-Wale-White-Wedding-Dubai-18395_Jide Odukoya Photography_BellaNaija Weddings 2015_“The Groom and his ‘Goons’ challenged the bride and her bridesmaids to a dance-off, totally unplanned.

    Dear BN, Please always include surnames so that we can identify those that are children of public servants and politicians. Thank you

    Budget? What is that? Is it a noun or a verb? Usage: I don’t think there was a budget for this wedding ???
    An opulent affair nevertheless. Congratulations to the couple.

    The bride is so stunning! When she smiles, it is just an aah moment. Beautiful. I also love that she chose lovely dresses for her bridesmaids. A bride with a good heart. They can definitely wear them again to other occasions…and oh the gift of watches to the bridesmaids was really sweet and thoughtful of her. All in all, a wonderful wedding with great attention to detail.. Congratulations to the newly weds.
