Sometimes the most beautiful love stories are born from lifelong friendships. Such was the case for these Southern sweethearts. See their romantic Georgia wedding day.
Eghosa had lots of help getting prepared to meet her groom at the altar.
“The day was all I dreamed of and even more,” says Eghosa. “I was very happy, but it was all so surreal. To have a beautiful wedding and a handsome husband is definitely a blessing.”
A group shot worthy of a frame.
Eghosa found her “princess look” online by looking through bridal photos.
“The moment I prayed and ask God to reveal His desire to me, I knew he was The One,” says the Eghosa. “After that, I noticed our relationship started getting closer and closer and closer.”
Let’s hear it for these dapper dudes.
We love the romantic blooms the couple chose for the big day.
“I chose Precious as my wife because of her heart,” says the groom. “I dated but there was always somethings missing. I prayed to God to bring someone that has the same heart as me. So Gods hands made our match.”
“I felt it, as soon as I looked in the mirror,” says Eghosa. “I knew it was my dress, and I was going to own it.”
We love it when brides glow like this on their wedding day. #Beautiful
“Tuoyo is the most giving person you would ever meet,” says Eghosa.
Custom details always make the bridal photos extra special.
We instantly fell in love with Eghosa’s vintage bridesmaids’ style.
“She is a very spiritual, kind, nurturing, and wise woman,” says the groom. “She has a heart of gold. Even if it is her last dime, she will give it to help someone in need. She strives to make herself better in every way possible.”
Eghosa loves her husband’s heart most. “I love the fact that he will be there for anyone and is always willing to go over and beyond for his family and friends,:” she says. “Even if he does not get the same in return.”
“I think God granted me to spend the rest of my life with my best friend,” says the bride. “Now, that is a blessing!”
The couple had 11 groomsman and 11 bridesmaids by their side.
Eghos’a dress hunt was a breeze. “I bought the second dress I tried on,” she says.
“When he proposed, I was very surprised,” says the bride. “I did not expect it. I cried like a baby. They were tears of joy because Eyituoyo is my best friend.”
“Knowing she was The One was almost a supernatural experience for me,” says the groom. “I was sitting in the car talking to my friend about things that were going on in my life at the time, when all of a sudden a change in my heart, mind and soul happened. It was a divine presence that had guided my whole being to the right person. Tears fell from my eyes ass I started to envision her as my wife, from then I knew she was the one.”
“My husband and I grew up together,” say Eghosa. “We’ve know each other since he was 11years old and I was 8 years old. In our early twenties, we became closer and we always looked forward to family outings and going out dancing with our family and mutual friends. Through hanging out frequently, we became closer.”
Could this sign be any cuter? We think not!
The couple sealed the deal with a traditional ceremony. “My pastor, Apostle Moses Mukwiza, is my spiritual father, who has been there for Tuoyo and I through counseling, advice, support, unconditional love and prayers,” says the bride. “We are so grateful to have him in our life.”
The couple spoke from their hearts at the altar.
There were nothing but tender moments at the altar for Eghosa and Eyituoyo.
“It was surreal,” says Eghosa. “I could not believe I was marrying my best friend. I was just so happy. I had to hold his hand to make sure I was real.”
Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Orugboh!
Eghosa chose a vintage Hollywood theme for their big day.
“He is very family oriented,” says the bride. “He loves children and is a technology guru. I have never met anyone who learns as quickly as Tuoyo.”
The couple rolled out the red carpet to make sure their big entrance was a big deal and to complement their old Hollywood theme.
Over 600 guests attended the couple’s “I dos.”
A classic cake for a classic couple.
Eghosa admits she cried tears of joy during their first dance.
“We wanted something simply but elegant, we went with various flavors, vanilla, strawberry, white chocolate,” says Eghosa when describing their decadent wedding cake.
I love her presence, she has a certain aura around her,” says the groom. “Her presence alone gives me a calm feeling. She is the light in my darkest times.”
The newlyweds reigned supreme at the reception, sitting at a sweetheart table regal enogh for a king and queen.
Now that’s a big group. We wonder which lucky lady caught beaming bride Eghosa’s bridal bouquet.
Eyituoyo’s pastor actually shipped a suit over from Europe just for the dapper groom. “Yes I Picked my own suit,” he proudly proclaims.
We love that the couple mixed cultural traditions into their wedding weekend.
