How gorgeous are these two? Rita and Ikenna had a pageant themed pre-wedding shoot for their first look, as Mr & Mrs #Rikena2017. Read how they met and how Ikenna proposed to Rita, six months after their first date.
How they met
Ike saw my picture on a mutual friends phone and asked for my number back in October 2016 …we then chatted for about 2 months before we planned to meet each other.. On our first date in December 2016, despite cancellation of his flight from Owerri to Lagos, he still made it to our dinner date. Ike took a taxi from Owerri to Lagos which was over 9 hours on the road just to meet with me.
I was ready and excited to see him… my make up was running down my face because of the long wait, however thank God I was patient enough to wait for him to arrive. We clicked on our first date, and I even remember telling him after the date that I would see him next December (2017), because he was going back to Manchester where he lives.. and he smiled and said that he would be back for me soon.
How he proposed
He kept to his word as he came back to Nigeria early in 2017 and asked if I could be his girl, then in June 2017 after my NYSC pass out course he organized a surprise dinner to celebrate it and there he went on one knee and asked me to marry him..!
It has been an amazing journey and it feels like I have known him all my life. Ike is so charming, kind, caring, selfless and God fearing, he is all I want in a man and much more.. we will be walking down the aisle at Holy Cross Cathedral, Owerri and look forward to an exciting 2018 together.
