Beautiful actress, Ini Dimma Okojie, got married to Abasi Eneobong over the weekend, and it was a fun-filled and picture-perfect event with their celebrity guests. Ini Dima Okojie looked super-happy, was stylish dressed and her beau was not left out.
Now, let’s rewind to how it went down and do a recap of their looks, how they met, how he proposed, their marriage introduction and wedding pictures. Swipe/ scroll down to see how it went down.
2019: From Fanboy to Boyfriend (How they Met)
Their wedding hashtag, #AChocolateLoveStory, summarizes the story of how they met. According to Ini Dima Okojie, they connected over Chocolates. Yes, Chocolates! After Abasi Eneobong proposed to her, Ini Dima made an Instagram post where she narrated the story of how (in 2019) she was ranting (on her Insta Stories) about how it was difficult for her to find ‘fresh, crispy Maltesers chocolates’ in Lagos.
She later received an email from a random fan, named ‘Abasi’ who saw her rant-type Instagram post. The subject of that email was ‘Maltesers from London’, and in that email, he said ‘he was in London at the time and would love to send some Maltesers to my manager or representative’s address’. A week after the email, she received a bag full of Maltesers!
People, that was how Ini Dima Okojie met her now-husband, Abasi Ene-obong. How sweet!
July 2021: Abasi Proposed to Ini – Lunch Date Turned a Surprise Proposal
Ini happily announced their proposal on Instagram. Narrating how Abasi proposed to her, she said:
What I thought was going to be a cute cheeky date with my boo turned out to be the night that he asked me to be his wife in the presence of all the people that I love. (Eeeek I still can’t believe it). It was truly the best night… like, you couldn’t have planned a more perfect proposal for me. I don’t know how you just knew, It was like you went into my mind and heart and knew exactly how I would want it. I have a confession, I didn’t hear a word you said baby, I was busy crying…
The marriage proposal planning was outsourced to @truelovelane/ Instagram.
November 2021: Ini & Abasi’s Marriage Introduction
Her Look: Ini Dima was stylishly dressed in a beautiful fitted rose-gold long gown with statement sleeves and a matching Gele headtie.
His Look: Abasi wore an oxblood-coloured Kaftan and accessorized with a black-and-gold patterned cap.
May 20 2022: Court/ Registry Wedding
His Look: A pink wedding suit with grey sneakers (no-ties, a nice business-casual look)
Her look: A pristine-white off-the-shoulder bridal trouser suit, a birdcage net-veil as hairpiece on an updo packing-gel hairstyle and silver-grey heels.
The couple made their relationship legal by tying the knot at two wedding ceremonies, first was their Court wedding followed by a star-studded traditional wedding ceremony. Ini’s court wedding look was elegantly chic two-piece white bridal pantsuit with an off-the-shoulder peplum top. Her groom, Abasi Eneobong, wore a pink wedding suit accessorized with a grey sneakers. Together, they both gave us the causal chic vibes and a modern court wedding attire for a working, power couple. I love it.
May 21 2022: Their Edo-Efik Traditional Wedding Ceremony
It was an inter-cultural wedding – Esan bride (Edo state) and Efik groom (Cross River state). Ini Dima wore an Edo bridal wear while her groom wore an Efik groom’s look at their traditional wedding. I love how each partner repped their own culture through their dressing. Even though they did not go for the usual matching colour look, their different attires complemented each other. Ini later had a costume change into an Efik bridal wear to match Abasi’s Efik attire.
They had an after-party and Ini wore a rich, chocolate coloured beaded gown, while Abasi wore a black Kaftan designed by Mai Atafo. Ini and Abasi looked excited in all their wedding pictures and videos.
Guests included their family and friends, with Ini’s Nollywood colleagues including Kate Henshaw, Osas Ighodaro, Nancy Isime and others. The dress code at their traditional wedding was Chocolate Brown aso-ebi. You can check out photos of the best dressed celebrity guests at Ini and Abasi’s traditional wedding.
Ini’s Surprise Moroccan-Themed Bridal Shower (May 25)
A few days after her court and traditional wedding, Ini’s friends threw her an amazing Moroccan-themed bridal shower. Venue was Workbox, and event space in Lagos Island. In attendance were Nancy Isime, Mimi Onalaja, Sharon Ooja, and more.
Ini looked very pretty for the event, with a flawless makeup. She wore mini white dress with spaghetti straps, accessorized with a cute oversized bridal hair bow that tapered down her waist. She finished off her look with red shoes.
The event was a fun-filled one, as Ini was full of smiles and laughter. They all had fun with lots of dancing, playing (games) and sipping Moet & Chandon Champagne. Check out the bridal shower photos and video below.
Ini and Abasi’s Lavish White Wedding Celebration (Church Wedding – May 28)
The final leg of #AChocolateLoveStory of Ini Dima and Abasi Ene-Obong held a few days after her bridal shower. It was a celebrity-studded event. Check out the photos and videos from the event.
Recap of the Couple’s Relationship Timeline
Ini Dima Okojie and Abasi Ene-obong began their ‘forever’ journey when Abasi slid into Ini’s email in response to her rant over not finding good Malteser chocolates. A year later, Abasi proposed to Ini Dima Okojie, and a few months later he made it official to the parents (marriage introduction), and over the weekend Abasi and Ini legally became Mr. and Mrs. at a Court wedding followed by a lavish traditional wedding.
