Both of Nigerian descent, Andrea Piri and Enyinnaya Adighibe met during the Umu Igbo Unite Annual Gala in Houston, an event for young adults of Nigerian and Igbo heritage living in the U.S. Discovering they both had lived in Chicago, they struck up a conversation and kept in contact, going on their first date a few weeks later.

At their wedding on June 9, 2018, the two exchanged notes expressing their gratitude for one another that they read privately moments before the ceremony, and during the reception, the married couple was joined by family and friends to celebrate their union in an exuberant night on the dance floor.

The bride works as a certified hand therapist, and the groom works in health-care analytics. The happy couple currently lives in Chicago.
