Vadim and Tobi met 5 years ago, after Tobi moved to Isreal 8 years ago, and they’ve been inseparable ever since. The couple had their Cinderella’s ball #cinderella2016 themed wedding on the 23rd January 2016 in Abuja!
The blushing half Islreali, half Urhobo bride dazzled in her gold blouse with matching gold George wrapper made by Somix and Bubbles, with just the perfect pop of vibrant red color from her beaded jewellery designed by Quest and signature and Imose woman, and a flawless farebeat by Teasel, she was ready to go! While her brand new hubby was handsome as can be in his long sleeves gold Sherwani suit.
Tobix Decorators & Rentals decked the outdoor garden reception out in simple and contemporary yellow gold and teal decor, and the photographic phenoms from Jefferey Davidson photography captured every essential detail extraordinarily!

How they met (By the Bride, Tobi):
Vadim and I met 5 years ago. I moved to Israel about 8 years ago, and while living there I got a job waitressing at a restaurant. Vadim at the time was working very close by, we exchanged greetings from time to time, at a point he asked me out and it was hard saying no to this blonde, blue eyed prince and the rest was history.
The proposal– last year, we travelled to city of Budapest for a long awaited holiday. this 4 night vacation was planned by me fro A to Z. I had absolutely no idea of my future groom’s intentions. on the second night we had dinner at a fancy restaurant (that I chose!) and at the end of dinner, he gets down on one knee and pops the question. trying to speak through my tears I managed a yes. the rest joins history
About the wedding & planning:
On january 23rd 2016, we celebrated our traditional wedding in Abuja. The bride’s family flew in 20 of our family members from abroad to be a part of our special day, and on the day itself dressed them up in asoebi and traditional outfits which was definitely an exciting sight.
the event took place at Tobix Garden in Abuja. The colous were teal and yellow and the theme was Cinderella’s ball #cinderella2016. It was decorated and planned by one of Abuja’s top event planner, my mom- Tobix events and decorators.
We are so grateful for the event and the bringing together of family in this joyous celebration and thankful for all the vendors that made it special
