Lavish Love: Dunnie + Ibrahim's Wedding in Beverly Hills

Meet Dunnie (@missdunnieo), a special events producer with a huge following on Instagram thanks to her amazing outfits and beautiful figure, and Ibrahim (@FacetFilms), a noted film and television director. With just those credentials, you know the wedding in going to be spectacular!

Captured by Kirill Karetin, the lavish Hollywood wedding beautifully mixed African and American traditions.

Though both are high profile, the two met not at an event, but in the checkout line for Trader Joes! Ibrahim, a Los Angeles native took Dunnie, a first generation Nigerian American hailing from Maryland, to popular Hollywood eatery Kitchen 24 for their first date. A second date soon followed: “without missing a beat, the next day Ibrahim took me to Six Flags Magic Mountain,” says Dunnie. “We have been inseparable ever since.”

Ibrahim surprised his ladylove with a romantic public proposal on the runway of the Facet Fashion Show. In front of five hundred guests, Dunnie’s man dropped to one knee and popped the question with a beautiful rose gold diamond engagement ring he had custom made just for her.
