It was a joyful day for Deputy President William Ruto and his family as he officially handed over the hand of his daughter – June Ruto wedding – to her Nigerian husband Dr. Alexander Ezenagu.
The invite-only wedding ceremony was held at Ruto’s private residence in Karen. Only close friends and family witnessed the two exchange their vows, with an adult reception following later at the same venue.
In the morning, Ruto had attended the national prayer breakfast meeting, before making his way to his daughter’s wedding.
Several guests chose to keep with a rose theme for their outfits, as others played around with warm colours.
The lady of the hour, June, was dressed in a simple satin, white strapless gown with a cathedral veil, hair well held together, white peep-toe heels, beautiful jewelry, and a bridal bouquet.

DP Ruto was dressed in a black morning coat also known as Cutaway, black leather shoes and complimented the look with a black fedora hat, giving it that 1920s vibe.
The mother of the bride – Mama Rachel Ruto – was not left behind as she stunned in a rose dress, with well-thought-out details, well-done makeup that complimented her natural look, and to accessorize, she wore a rose fascinator and a gold clutch bag.
June’s husband alongside his family members visited Ruto’s family early this month for dowry negotiations and introductions.
Ezenagu holds an LLB from the University of Ibadan in Nigeria and is also a graduate of the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom.
He currently is an Assistant Law Professor at the Hamad Bin Khalifa University in Qatar.
