Our Aww, LOL and OMG moments from our Wedding of the week (Volume five)

wed special

Tolani Ayo-Vaughan and Ibukun Eweje are our couple of the week and we are so excited about their wedding!

From their traditional wedding to the white wedding, it was a blend of joy, laughter, dancing, dancing, and dancing.

Just before their wedding, Ibk and Tolani got everyone talking about their save-the-date video, which is more like a remake for Kiss Daniel’s Woju.

Their love story as told by Tolani

“I think the story starts when one day in class. A friend asked me if I had met this new guy named Ibk. I told him no, and he proceeded to tell me all about him. He said Ibk had moved here (to the US) from Netherlands but is Yoruba, from Nigeria, and in the corps of cadets etc. It’s funny because we both do not remember the exact day we met, but we think it was at an African Students Association (ASA) meeting back in 2009.

Fast forward two years, I was organizing a scholarship pageant and needed some volunteers to help with the event. I reached out to him asking if he was interested in being one of our hosts and he agreed (till today he is convinced that I asked him to participate in the event because I was ‘interested’ in him).

Later in the year we started talking frequently on Facebook and then through texts and then phone calls everyday. We quickly learned that we had a lot in common, both really into Nigerian music…both engineers…both God fearing… both oil kids growing up in different countries…both hate olives etc and so our friendship grew quite rapidly.

Ibukun is truly a blessing to me. He has this natural gift of lighting up a room by bringing smiles and laughter to everyone with his outgoing personality. I admire his drive and dedication in everything he does, and I really appreciate that he also motivates and pushes me to strive for my best as well. He is my very best friend and I don’t know what I would do without him. He has been a constant source of happiness in my life. I thank God every day for bringing him all the way from Netherlands to Texas and into my life, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him.”

We now present to you our favorite moments at their wedding.
