The interactions with the animals were so precious and unlike anything I have experienced before. My husband and I had an intimate 55 person wedding ceremony and dinner at Akwaaba Mansion.
I cannot say enough about Monique and the entire team who made our wedding night simply magical. Though we booked the Inn early in our engagement, we waited until sort of last minute to put everything together.
We found Akwaaba to be well-organized, but flexible and pretty much the most stunning place in Brooklyn to be married (and we looked at a lot of venues! It's also great that there is outdoor space, which we made great use of, and a piano in the interior living room (so we were able to have piano music accompanying dinner).
Look back to the date, month and year you were born and find the day of the week and your new name!
(I’ve put pronunciations in parentheses for the tricky ones) Days of the Week Boy’s Name Girl’s Name Sunday Kwasiada Kwasi Akosua Monday Dwoada Kwadwo (Kojo) Adwoa (Adjwa) Tuesday Benada Kwabena Abenaa Wednesday Wukuada Kwaku (Kway-koo) Akua (Aqua) Thursday Yawoada Yaw (Yao) Yaa Friday Fiada Kofi Afua/Afia Saturday Memeneda Kwame Amma As for me, I am Tuesday born so my new name is Christine Stephanie Abenaa Fukuda. Before I let you go there is one more Twi word that I have learned in my time here.
This one didn’t take long to understand and did not require the help of my Twi professor.
