Wichita – Weather forecasts just had to be wrong to accommodate the grandiose royal wedding between Ogechi Velma Ekeocha and Richard Chukwuemeka Opara. The exquisite garden wedding had all the trappings of a Royal setting with the rays of bright sunlight illuminating the neatly arranged white chairs just as hundreds of guests arrived. Ogechi and Richard Opara could not have prayed for anything better especially with the weather system in place.
Guests, most of whom arrived from long distances including Nigeria had earlier been hosted to a welcome banquet at the Wichita Country Club. Dr. and Mrs. Godwin Opara, the Chief hosts of the event had ensured that all guests were treated as VIP’s. The banquet was a perfect opportunity for guests to mix and mingle with the new couple.
Ogechi and Richard Opara who rode in a horse driven chariot from the Botanica garden wedding venue arrived the Wichita Scottish Rite hall, venue of the grand reception to the warm greetings of thousands of guests. The carefully orchestrated bridal party entrance to the hall was a spectacle.
