Love Story from The Bride:
How did you meet?
We both met in Houston at an annual gala in 2014 hosted by an organization at Glenn’s pharmacy school. At the time, I was in Dallas at a different pharmacy school and was invited to be part of the fashion show at the gala by one of my pharmaceutical fraternity brothers. During the fashion show, Glenn and I were both paired with each other and engaged in great conversation. We danced down the fashion show runway sporting some of the latest Nigerian attire and dance moves. We had so much fun that people in the audience thought we knew each other! After the fashion show, I went to sit down with my sister and friends and they kept asking about the guy and if he’d asked for my phone number. At that time he had not so I wasn’t sure if he was really into me. By the end of the night, Glenn circled back to me to chat and eventually asked for my number. I asked him “Will you even call?” and he said “Yes, I’ll call
tomorrow.” I was skeptical and responded “Ok, we’ll see.” He actually did call the next day and we have literally talked every day since! We made the relationship official about one month after the fashion show while celebrating his birthday in Galveston!
Did you have a romantic proposal?
I graduated from pharmacy school in May 2016. My family planned a party to celebrate the achievement of the terminal degree in my career, the Doctor of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.). The party took place in July 2016 with over 300 people in attendance. Glenn proposed to me during the party causing an eruption of excitement by guests and a celebration worthy for two blessings. I was completely caught off guard since I had been focused on studying for my board exams all summer. I was very emotional to say the least!
What was your inspiration for your wedding theme/colors?
Soft and elegant; white, gold, and pink; we had a destination wedding with the ceremony overlooking the beach. It was a beautiful scene.
How was the planning process?
The wedding planning process went incredibly smoothly! Chioma from Dure Events is an amazing woman with a keen eye for detail. Her calm spirit made me feel at ease the entire time. The entire team was awesome as well!

Reception Details And Wedding Party
Do you have any special or memorable moments from your wedding day you’d like to share?
The wedding toast speeches were truly special moments. Both my sisters and my best friend/Maid of Honor delivered touching speeches that brought tears to my eyes. I feel incredibly blessed to be surrounded by such phenomenal women. Adding to the significance, my wedding day coincided with Father’s Day, making it even more memorable as it marked my dad’s first time walking his daughter down the aisle. It was indeed a very special day for everyone!
