We incredibly adore the beautiful proposal of Ozo & Uzo and we just can’t stop swooning over their stunning engagement session pictures by Rhphotoarts. Uzo wanted to start his New Year plans with Ozo in every details, he strategically proposed to Ozo by 11.58pm on the 31st of December. And guess what, his dreams came true.
Sometimes the best love for you can be hidden right under your nose. When Uzo met Ozo, they became friends and kept in touch. Uzo had a crush on Ozo for some time, but she wasn’t there yet, so he did what any good man would do—he stuck around and focused on what was most important, being the best friend to her. Some months later when they rekindled their friendship, something was different this time around. There were sparks between them and they both felt in their hearts that it was time to take their friendship to the next level and they became closer than close.
“When Uzo proposed, I said yes because, at that point, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I loved him and wanted to be with him for the rest of my life, whatever may come,” says Ozo. “As long as we were together, I knew in my heart he is all I ever wanted.”
The Amazing Proposal In Rome
D DAY!!! It’s New Year’s Eve. We’re on our way to dinner and she’s on Japanese tourist mode; every minute there’s a camera in my face. As I try my best to look interested, I’m simultaneously trying to guard this ring with my life and also trying to ensure I have the heart to get through this without going into cardiac arrest. I know I want to make this woman my wife but being in the midst of executing a brief moment that will result into a lifetime decision is a scary and sobering thought for anyone. Every time doubt creeps in, I remember every great quality she possesses and I’m right back on track; focused! We finally get to the restaurant, her excitement is bubbling over. She’s joking with me and being her goofy girlie self. In true Uzo fashion I’m busy on my phone. In true Ozo fashion, she’s showing her frustration by ignoring me lol. We have a great dinner and engage in small talk with our server. We ask the best place to go for fireworks. Sure he’s unaware of my plans but this guy has the nerve to suggest somewhere other than my intended destination.
I want to nack the guy for head, yeye man was trying to “throw sand in my garri”. I mean couldn’t this guy read my mind, lol! Of course Ozo is sold on the server’s suggestion, but when we get into the cab, I tell the driver to “come on take us to Trevi Fountain”. We arrive, quietly walking the edge of the fountain, holding hands, admiring our surroundings. My heart is beating as fast as ever, a comfortable familiar feeling. I have only felt this rush on my motorcycle. We make our way to the bottom of the fountain, and just as the clock hits 11:58 pm, we both make a wish and throw coins in the water. Then I say, “babe, you know I love you right?” I forget my entire speech, but it doesn’t matter. All I see is my baby’s teary eyes as I drop down to one knee and say “will you marry me?”. SHE SAID YES!
