How they met was the stuff of romantic movies.  Him walking into a Manhattan restaurant seeking respite from winters’ chill. Her, finishing up her final client meetings.   Suddenly, eyes connect, and that instant lightening bolt of chemistry hits, where instinctively you just know you have found “the one.” And so this is how Temi and Odia’s big city romance began and flowed all the way through their downright romantic and beautifully elegant wedding.

With the Tuscan Gardens at Snug Harbor as the backdrop, this absolutely lovely couple said”i do” to a packed house of sharply dresses friends and family, everyone resplendent in their geles and swiss lace. next it was off to nanina’s on the park for their lushly decorated reception with tall tropical centerpieces of mokora orchids, birds of paradise and proteas.

The bridesmaids, who by the way were all of Temi’s knockout sisters, dressed in Gray, with the Maid of Honor in Coral.  The groom Odia and all his men wore dark gray suits.  The Bride who wore Vera Wang, later changed in a couture emerald Asian inspired gown with matching emerald Fendi sandals (we about passed out when she changed into that little number and came in serving for the gawds!).

We were so fortunate to get to know this couple and their family and to be a part of their magical day.  We left feeling that even in “real life,” one can star in their own romantic film!
