It was love at first sight for Mobolaji & Ope who met through Bolaji’s close friend who happens to be Ope’s cousin. The two got introduced to each other and the love sparked instantly between them. Bolaji didn’t really play hard to get and decided to give Ope a chance. Their conversations were natural and she felt really safe with him. The unforgettable proposal was a memorable one for the lovebirds. Bolaji was actually helping out with the house decoration, cooking and all for her surprise proposal but she didn’t see it coming.
We absolutely love their beautiful and captivating wedding pictures and the wedding color theme (Red) makes them easy on the eyes. Enjoy their true love story…
The Divine Meeting
We met through my best friend who happens to be my husband’s cousin. I went visiting that day and he was on vacation to Nigeria and had come over to the house with his sister. We got introduced to each other and that was it.
We had our dream wedding. I had the look I still can’t get over, big thanks to my makeup artist and my hair stylist. I got to church and was all smiles when I saw my husband looking all dapper.
I was so speechless when he sang “Iyawo mi” by Timi Dakolo at the reception. In all, it was a very beautiful day I must say. Thanks to everyone who made it a success.
The Amazing Proposal
He was due back in Nigeria this day in August 2013 and I was in my sister-in-law’s house with all his siblings. We had different meals cooking and the house was been decorated. It was pretty exciting and I joined in decorating, my sis-in-law told me it was just a lil welcome party for him. I really never suspected anything because earlier in the month, I had to choose a ring of my choice which he was supposed to bring along with him. We picked him up at the airport and headed home, the house was all decorated with some soft soul music playing in the background, it still didn’t occur to me that I was been set up.
After the whole lovey dovey welcome thing, we were both in the dining room along side few friends and siblings, then he excused himself and came back almost immediately. I was engrossed with my phone so I had my head down. I looked up and saw everyone all smiling and taking pictures of me. He dropped the cake (box shape with a ring on it saying “pls marry me baby”) in front of me, then he knelt down saying “plenti tins” all I just kept saying was “yes” “yes” “yes” even before he was done with all he had to say. It was a memorable moment for both of us. I just can’t imagine myself living without him in my ‘life journey’.
TRADITIONAL WEDDING PICTURES
Bolaji also shares some wedding planning tips for would-be-couple which she thinks might be helpful before you walk down the aisle….”Basically adequate & long term planning is the key. We started so early and it helped us a lot. Always have a back up plan so u don’t break down when plan A fails especially when it does at the last minute”.
