All thanks to God nothing silly happened in the church during the service, however, Umueze people, knowing the inevitability of such, never gave up on their expectations.
After the church service, everyone has moved to the church's event hall, since the reception will be taking place there. The reception commenced very well and things were going smoothly until it was time to bring the wedding cake forward. Adaku's mum was all filled with happiness at the level of progress they have witnessed without any interruptions, as she showed it in her dance steps. As she was dancing, she unconsciously stepped on her dress and staggered towards the baker conveying the cake and the cake fell down and messed up the floor.

This was the only silly event recorded on the wedding, Adaku was satisfied, so also was everyone that came. Hence the fanciful wedding has put an end to the unfortunate events tormenting the people of Umueze.
