Asisat & Quam’s meeting was divine! Asisat had given up on love but as fate would have it, she met Quam who changed her whole perspective about love. Quam met Asisat at the yearly Nigerian Muslim Convention. When Quam saw Asisat, he was mesmerized by her beautiful smile and kind-heartedness. Quam was looking for a way to be friends with Asisat after that first meeting and he started off with a lovely Facebook message to her. For the proposal, Quam planned a romantic one for Asisat at the 86th floor on top of the Empire State Building in NYC with the help of her sister.
Asisat lovingly looks gorgeous in her wedding dress which she wears with a uniquely tied hijab. The beautiful brooch crystal bouquet makes it look more glamour. The groom looks super dapper in a black tuxedo suit with a matching bow-tie.
Enjoy their beautiful wedding story……
The Divine Meeting
About four years ago, I wasn’t sure if I was going to ever meet Mr. Right. I prayed, fasted, and worked on getting closer to God, because I felt that in order to maintain a relationship with another human being, it was important for me to get closer to the one that created me. I also spent time working on making myself a better person. At that time I felt broken and didn’t want to get into another relationship before I honestly felt I was of value and had achieved a certain level of self satisfaction. It wasn’t easy whatsoever, but after 9 months of soul searching and consistent prayer, I met Quam. It’s funny because before him I didn’t know anyone else with the name Quam. When I looked for the meaning of his name, I found that it meant “protector,” and to be honest, he’s been just that! On May 24th, 2014, I married my best friend, my soul mate, my adviser, and the love of my life. I hope you enjoy our story and wedding/reception pictures
How It All Started
It started with a Facebook message. I still have those messages today…lol.
Quam (who had no game whatsoever) started off by saying how he saw me at the Annual Nigerian Muslim Convention in Boston a week prior and how he found me interesting.
Via Facebook messaging, we communicated for about two weeks. It got to a point where I got fed up (I’m a phone/ face-to-face kinda gal), but I didn’t want to seem desperate, so instead of asking him for his phone number, I asked if he had bbm (back when everyone had a blackberry). We chatted via bbm for about another week. I can’t lie, conversations were nice, but I still needed to hear his voice, and was concerned that maybe the mid-night chatting via bbm wasn’t going anywhere. So, instead of saying “well forget about it, maybe he just isn’t feeling me,” I asked him if we could speak on the phone. At first, he was apprehensive, but then out of nowhere, he called, and although it was a quick 3 minute conversation, I was satisfied.Two years fast forward, Quam moved to Virginia for a job, and I was so sure he was going to pop the question. Like many marriage-minded females, I consistently questioned him about marriage, but it wasn’t time (he and I both knew that).
The Romantic Proposal
About 3 months later, I got accepted to Teach for America and moved to NYC to work and attend grad school. The majority of our relationship up until this point was long-distance, so moving to NY didn’t change much. But, living in two different states, kind of put a strain on our relationship because commuting alone took a large part of our time together.
One day out of nowhere, Quam asked if he could plan an outing for us. I was shocked, because Quam never planned anything. It was January 5, 2013, Quam picked me and my sister (Olamide) up from my apartment and took us to the Empire State Building. At this point I already knew he was going to pop the question because in my 2 years of living in NY, he had never taken me to the Empire State Building. Anyway, as soon as we stepped into the magniloquent building, I felt like a celebrity because we went straight pass the long admission lines.
We stepped into the elevator, and my sister who was video taping the entire moment was acting really antsy. Supposedly, being inside of the Empire State Building was something she had to capture on video…yeah right!
We got off at the 86th floor, and I’m still trying to act clueless (didn’t want to mess up the moment). We stepped outside to look at the view overseeing NY city.
While taking in the scenery, Olamide tells me to turn around. And, there he was, Quam Olanrewaju Onigbanjo, on one knee, with a gorgeous ring in his hand, asked me….Asisat Omolola Edu to marry him. Although, I knew that moment was coming, I still had butterflies in my stomach.
When he asked that QUESTION, I was prepared to give the ANSWER that would change the rest of my life!!!
