Demi and Ife were college sweethearts who met in the classroom while attending Obafemi Awolowo Univerity in Nigeria. When a mutual friend set up a more formal meetup for them, Ife showed up determined to win over Demi. “My husband came dressed to impress,” she tells us. “He walked into my room with a rehearsed confidence and the rest is history. We became really good friends afterwards and got closer as time passed.” It was easy for Demi and Ife to fall in love when they realized just how many things they had in common, like traveling, binge-watching television shows and a true appreciation for downtime. Ife soon became much more than just a boyfriend to Demi. He was also her confidant and best friend. “When you find that special person, you are just grateful to God every day that He caused your paths to cross,” says the bride.
It was late November of 2012, just a few days before Thanksgiving, when Ife came to visit Atlanta to see Demi. They made a romantic visit to Stone Mountain Park which was lit up beautifully with Christmas decorations on beautiful mountains capped with artificial snow. Ife initially planned to propose to Demi on a picturesque cable car ride across the mountains but the weather was so bad the cable car rides were closed. Determined not to miss his moment, Ife came up with another plan to ask Demi to be his wife. They decided instead to take a stroll by the gardens in front of the mountain and sat there for a while to talk. Ife asked Demi to pose for a picture with the mountains as the stunning backdrop, and just when she thought he was about to snap the picture, he got down on bended knee and popped the question. (Swoon!) She was blissfully mesmerized. “I could barely hear all that he was saying in that moment,” she says. “All I could see was that sparkly shiny object in the cute little box he was holding up.” See their romantic Georgia wedding and share their love.
