Anwuri & Ugo met through a mutual friend of Anwuri’s sister. We must say Ugo is a lucky guy because he met his the love of his life in his house on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. Anwuri & Ugo were in different relationships as at the time they met. The first time Ugo laid his eyes on Anwuri, his heart skipped and he knew immediately that he has found his missing rib. It wasn’t a coincidence that they met twice in his house; it was fate. Just few months after knowing each other, a romance between them bloomed and they became closer than close. ““He is kind, tender, gentle, has vision for his life and very humble,” says Anwuri “He challenges me and encourages me to be the best I can be. He has a great sense of humor, believes in me, makes me want to be a better woman”. Anwuri and Ugo are so in love, they didn’t miss a chance to add elements of romance to every aspect of their wedding day.

The first time I met Ugo was in his house. It was on a beautiful Sunday afternoon after church. We went to his house for lunch because he had this mutual friend with my sister who invited us there and it was just beside my church. According to Ugo, from the first day he saw me, he knew I was going to be his wife..lol.We met again twice in 2010 in his house after church because of this mutual friend he had with my sister.mAll this while, we both had our different relationships. In february 2011,on my sisters birthday she had a dinner party and she invited this ‘their’ friend..and who did I see? Ugo again..We started talking and he made me laugh all through the night. I just couldn’t hesitate giving him my number..lol..We started talking for hours over the phone and we got really fond of each other..He always makes me laugh. As time went on, the feelings grew stronger and before we realized what was going on, we had fallen so deeply in love with each other….and on my birthday we couldn’t help it but make it official.
Just The Two Of Us
He proposed to me in his house. It was on the 13th of July 2013, which happens to be my sisters introduction day. The night before that day, he called me and told me to make sure I come to his house in the morning before the event starts. I explained to him how busy I’ld be and told him I would see him later in the day but he insisted that I should just come? Reluctantly that morning, on my way from the laundry, with my sister and cousin, I decided to go to his house as he requested. While we were all there in his house gisting and laughing, he called me out and took me to a quiet room. Prior to that time he had mentioned how he would like to spend the rest of his life with me and we planned a trip in london in 3wks to go buy a ring of my choice (I didn’t know he was just deceiving me and has something else up his sleeves….lol).As we got to the room, he asked me to close my eyes..I couldn’t jst wait to open them..As I did…..I him on his knees holding a little red box with a diamond ring staring at me..I was totally speechless because it was the last thing on my mind at that time….I just kept on screaming…..OMG!!OMG!!!…until everyone ran out to see wat was happening.
It was a beautiful wedding……everything went well as planned and we had soo much fun..Thanks to my boo, my family and wonderful friends ..Not forgetting all our amazing vendors who did a great job……We just can’t thank God enough who made that day possible…it was really a huge success.
