Please welcome the Doctors Oge and Chinedu Ejike. This beautiful and lively couple were wed on August 30, 2014 in Baltimore, MD.
Oge and Chinedu are both residents and live out of state. Their families reside in Maryland, so when Chinedu proposed to Oge, the planning began for a Maryland wedding. Once Oge laid eyes on “The Belvedere-Baltimore”, she fell in love. The Belvedere has an ornate and robust setting! The room that they selected is adorned in deep reds and gold. DaVinci florist created the perfect blend of florals, crystals, and candlelight which made for a grand and luxurious reception. Her flowers consisted of calla lillies, hydrangea, roses and orchids. Oge wore a beautiful ballroom styled dress by Demetrios. She was stunning! The bridesmaids each wore a long and elegant black gown. Chinedu and the groomsmen all wore black tuxedos.

The day started with hair and makeup at the Hotel Monaco. This hotel is such a dream. It is located in the heart of Baltimore and has a beautiful view of the city line. Oge was surrounded by over a dozen family and friends as she anxiously prepared for her big day!
Oge’s Bridesmaids helped her to get into her wedding dress and wedding jewels.
Chinedu was such a dapper groom. He and his groomsmen got ready on a separate floor of Hotel Monaco.
We love “First Look” photos where the Bride and Groom see each other before the ceremony. This is always a special moment that the couple shares intimately instead of in front of all their guests. Chinedu was a ball of nerves as he awaits the first glance at his beautiful bride.
Awwww! I live for these moments! The expression on their faces says it all.
On to the ceremony!
Everyone arrived and were super excited to witness this beautiful union!
The new Doctors Chinedu and Oge Ejike!
On to the reception at the Belvedere – Baltimore.
Guests were wowed as soon as they entered the building.
Oge’s parents were introduced into the reception.
Chinedu’s mom was introduced as well.
Siblings of Chinedu and Oge gave them such heartfelt toasts. There wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
Oge and her father choregraphed a cute “Father-Daughter” dance. Here they are doing the “Macarena”.
Chinedu and his mom danced together and were surrounded by family. What a special moment.
Ok, so when Oge mentioned the “Wedding Shoe” game, to me I was a little apprehensive. This was such a fun part of the reception! The emcee asked the bride and groom questions. They answered by raising a shoe. It was so fun to see if they both agreed on the answers.
Oge and Chinedu changed into traditional attire later in the reception and danced the night away!
So much fun….
