Love In Aisle Three
Forget the nightclubs or the bars—if you’re looking for a man who is husband material you might want to keep an eye open at the local grocery store. That’s where lovely bride Dunnie met her man, Ibrahim. “We were in the checkout line!” he recalls. After small talk turned to exchanging information, Ibrahim took Dunnie to popular Hollywood eatery Kitchen 24 for their first date. It was as magical as they both hoped that it would be and they knew a second date would soon follow. “Without missing a beat, the next day Ibrahim took me to Six Flags Magic Mountain,” she adds. “We have been inseparable ever since.”
Please Be Mine
As a special event producer living in Los Angeles, Dunnie often found herself managing a lively crowd. On November 9, 2013, Ibrahim surprised his ladylove with a romantic public proposal on the runway at the Facet Fashion Show. Five hundred guests watched on as he dropped to one knee and popped the question. “It was the ultimate conclusion to a great evening and an awesome start to our continued life together,” she tells us. “I was shocked and I just dropped down to hug him and kiss him. Then he swept me off my feet and carried me in front of everyone.” When he put her down, he presented her with the beautiful rose gold diamond engagement ring he had custom made just for her.” Their lavish Hollywood “I dos” mixed African and American traditions and it was truly an event to remember.
