Samar stole Russell’s heart the moment he met her. Her generous and loving spirit drew him in and he has been hooked ever since. We all know how tough NFL players are, but when Samar is in the room, Russell only has eyes for his beautiful wife. So, needless to say, he made sure their wedding day was everything she could dream of. And, it truly was. Every bride dreams of this day, and Samar is no different. Her vision of cherry blossoms and luxurious florals came true with Vizcaya Museum as a backdrop, adding an old world charm. Samar was stunning in her Galia Lahav gown. She radiated beauty and royalty. Even their custom hashtag agreed, #okungandqueen
As Russel caught a glimpse of Samar walking down the aisle, you could almost feel the love he has for her. Their vows were personal and full of passion. Their love of God brought them together, and will keep their bond strong and pure. The reception began with the couple’s first dance, however ended in an outfit change into traditional Nigerian garbs and a performance of Egyptian and Nigerian dance. It brought together their different cultures.
We wish Russell and Samar Okung a lifetime of wedded bliss, and wish them many blessings as Russell begins a new chapter in his career as an LA Charger!
