We are super excited to feature Ghanaian Jocelyn & Alvin’s beautiful love story. Jocelyn and Alvin met through her sister-in-law. They exchanged contact details and started chatting. They became close friends; Jocelyn and Alvin found everything they were looking for in each other. During a family visit to Jocelyn’s house, while the whole family was having dinner, Alvin asked the magical question. This amazingly took Jocelyn by surprise because she didn’t expect him to ask her openly in front of her parents and future parents-in-law. He gave her the little ring box she’d dreamed of and a promise for a new and greater life together as husband and wife. She said Yes, of course!
How We Met & The Beautiful Proposal
As a couple we met through my hubby’s sister and we used to chat on whatsapp and skype for about 4 months before I got to meet him in person. But as a traditional man, I met his mum first before we started dating officially. He came to Ghana from Canada in April 2013 and he came over to my house with his parents for dinner and he popped the magical question right in front of my family and his parents. He was like ‘do you see your future with me’ and I said yes then he said marry me baby, tears started rolling down my checks and I said yes I will.
The wedding was fun. I don’t mind doing it over and over again. We had the church ceremony, exchanged vows and moved to the reception. We had our bridal party dance which was my favourite part, the groom cried when I was walking down the aisle, I loved that too.
