Architect . Stationer . Magic Maker . Ola wear many hats, each more beautiful than the last. She established IJORERE The Invitation, Inc. June 2008. Her architectural expertise is evident in the unconventional approaches to her designs. Done with such precision, it is this background that sets IJORERE designs apart from the rest. Ola’s creative sensibilities don’t simply herald GRAND occasions, her designs are works of art.
Over the years, Ola has garnered accolades in the media, including from the likes of NBC, WCIU, Entrepreneur Magazine, INSIDE Weddings, BellaNaija, Munaluchi Bridal, Green Wedding Shoes, Chicago Style Weddings and more. She also has designed for A list celebrities of the industry; a few we’re able to mention are Louis Carr of BET, David Tutera of My fair weddings, and the weddings of NFL players; Nicholas Perry, and Michael Daniels.
Never idle, Ola took IJORERE to a higher level in May of 2013. She left her 20-year career in the design & construction industry and designed/opened her event venue, Ola’ la’! IJORERE.
“Ola says her life story is one that is ever shaped by culture, by geography and by a God-given eye for unique design. Her burgeoning enterprise is the result of a directed path, a drive to see her creative vision brought to life and the realization that limits are often an illusion.”
Ola resides in the northwest suburbs of Chicago, Illinois with her husband and three children.
