How they met….
From bride to be, Aminat: We met at my friend’s wedding on July 2nd, 2011 in Portland Oregon. He was one of the groomsmen and I was also one of the bridesmaid. I was partnered with another guy but I knew Ikenna got his eyes on me. So my shakara doubled. At the end of the night when the party was almost over, I decided to sit and rest my feet. Guess who brought me a glass of wine?? Ikenna!!! With a smile on his face. Then we started talking and before we knew it, we started dating…..
We took my dad out for a birthday brunch on October 6, 2013. It was on a Sunday after church service. Ikenna and I had an agreement that he would meet me at church then we can head to the restaurant. We planned meeting at 12:30pm because our reservation was at 1pm. This young fine man didn’t show up till 2:30pm. I was very upset and didn’t say a word to him. I usually order his meals when we go out but on this day I was too upset to do so. After we finished eating, he stood up and made a toast to my daddy. At the end of his toast, he said thank you for accepting me into the family and before I knew what was going on, I saw my sister and 2 of my aunts with tears and screaming. I looked to my side and this fine man was on his knees with that bling bling asking me to be his wife. I said Yes yes yes and I cried and cried then scream lol… A day i will never forget. Love is a beautiful thing. We are blessed.
