Yoruba Aṣọ Òkè shines in America as the Adekunbis and Awojoodus become one family! – Tola Adenle

August 7, 2015

Yoruba History & Culture

It was a great day as two young doctors follow the footsteps of their illustrious families when they sealed their love for each other with marital vows recently.

Dr. Anthony Olatokunboh Awojoodu pledged his vow to love and cherish the former Dr. Adeshewa Adekunbi at the colorful ceremony witnessed by friends and families from Nigeria and the USA.

Although we do not have photographs from the Yoruba Engagement ceremony, it must be said that Adeshewa looks stunning in her Western wedding dress.

While the words “stunning”, “beautiful”, et cetera belong solely to brides – okay, and a bit to the groom – at weddings, I must mention that the parents’ modern aṣọ òkè looks magnificent!

Among the many photographs received for the wedding ceremony are these two:

And this one of three people, two of whom are not only close to this blog – but are blogger’s family!

Here’s wishing Olatokunbo and Adeshewa abundant God’s blessings in their union, and the two families the blessings of our ancestors on their coming together.
