It was surely a magnificent day for Deacon Kola and Folu Adeyeye of Fort Worth Texas as they marked their 41st wedding anniversary at the sprawling Waxahachie civic center. It was also a day for divine synchronization as Deacon Kola Adeyeye also celebrated his 70th birthday.
The formal events of the day commenced with a renewal of vows program at the First Methodist Church Waxahachie, Texas conducted by Pastor Dewayne Owen. Highlights at this ceremony included renewal of vows, exchange of rings and prayers for the couple.
The wedding party then proceeded to the reception venue in a Cadillac Escalade customized limousine which featured a side gull-wing door. The happy celebrants exited and proceeded to view the hall, another joyous moment that saw them strike some initial dance steps before meeting up with guests at the cocktail hour.
Kola and Folu Adeyeye met in Lagos-1977 and eventually wedded on June 9th, 1981 while in the U.S.A. They are blessed with three children: Adenike, Adetola, and Damilola.
