Sade & Ayo

The love story between Sade Teyibo and Ayo Agbeluyi started when the two were just children.  They met in middle school and quickly became sweethearts, but lost contact as they got older. Sade, the free spirit, moved off to New York City to pursue her dreams in the fashion industry while Ayo took the safer route entering graduate school in Scotland.  But as fate would have it the two reconnected and in 2017 they got engaged while vacationing in Abu Dhabi. “We were enjoying drinks at the champagne bar with another couple who had been married for 20 years when suddenly Ayo got on his knees to propose,” Sade explained.

The couple went on to plan a simple yet elegant wedding that matched Sade’s style and the ambitious bride took on the responsibility of planning the big day herself with the help of her aunt who is also a caterer. The bride wore 3 gowns and the groom 2 custom suits for their July nuptials in Chantilly, VA.  The understated ceremony was in a church that glowed with candles lining the aisle. The bride’s unique taste was truly on display with decor that featured an oft overlooked flower, baby’s breath. “I loved the idea of using baby’s breath because I felt that that was so different and if done correctly, could be breathtaking,” Sade said. It was a gorgeous decision by the bride who pulled the look off with help of decorator, Geteey of Platinum Weddings. The centerpieces were stunning and, living up to their name, truly breathtaking.
