Today’s real wedding is an absolute stunner with such a beautiful love story behind it. As bride Udeme would describe it, this couple’s meeting was a “divine intervention.” Idongesit was in town, visiting the bay area from Dallas, TX for the first time and he was with mutual friends of Udeme’s family. They all came over to her mother’s house to visit her family since it was right around the holidays. Idongesit asked Udeme to show him around the city the next day and she obliged. She didn’t think much of it, but they did enjoy each other’s company. Before Udeme knew it, they were talking every day and their long distance romance began. They visited each other a lot and their love blossomed. “It was amazing,” says Udeme.
Their proposal was right out of a storybook. They took a romantic horse and carriage ride in downtown Dallas. As the carriage pulled up to a park in a scenic area, they got out of the carriage and took a stroll. Just as the sun was setting, Idongesit got on one knee and asked Udeme to be his wife. Fast forward to their beautiful wedding in San Jose, California, which was picture perfect.
