In keeping to their choice of a small wedding, they printed only 20 invitation cards but they had about 200 guests at their reception.
"We didn't do church wedding. We did court on Thursday and then engagement and reception on a Saturday. We eventually had up to 200 guests (my wife's parents did photocopy of IV (Laughs)."
Ademola shares their regret about the wedding
When asked if he had any regrets looking back on the occasion, Ademola said the only thing they regret was not sticking to the IVs.
"We have no regrets whatsoever. In fact we wished we had done strictly by IV, that way we would have gotten a way smaller hall and the same quality of people. Notice I said quality of people and not quantity of people. We haven't seen 98% of people who came to our wedding before the wedding, we haven't seen them after the wedding either."
