How We Met (Bride’s True Love Story)
Three years ago seems just like yesterday, when Kolawole divinely walked into my life. Kolawole and I attended the same university, but we were neither friends nor acquittances.
We had our first interaction over a telephone conversation in 2017. He had graduated at the time and I was rounding up my undergraduate study. He told me that he got my contact through a friend who recommended me as the one who could help him with a task. I graciously accepted and delivered excellently.
A few days later, he called back to express his appreciation and asked if we could be friends. I was cool with that.
We grew from strangers to close friends and would watch each other’s back even though we were over 100 miles apart. He was the most ‘cool, calm and collected guy’ I had ever met, plus smart, intelligent and mature and also has the fear of God.
We really connected on all levels.
I realized I started looking forward to his calls and chats. I remember how I lost my phone during one of those periods, my ‘disguised’ close friend got me a phone to ensure we did not lose communication.
Months later, he surprised me with a visit, having travelled from Abuja to see me at my school in Ogun State. It was a memorable day I can’t forget in my lifetime. He communicated how he felt about me, that he had always admired me from afar while he was still in school. I was not really surprised as there was already a mutual connection between us and was pretty sure I would say yes. However, I prayed and was convinced in my spirit that I was making the right decision.
Our relationship and love has steadily blossomed. We learned from each other, supported each other and achieved milestones together. Yes, we had our disagreements and differences, but it only made us stronger.
How He Proposed (The Surpriser Turned into ‘The Surprised’)
To sum it up, the proposal was a situation where a ‘surpriser’ got surprised (if there is any word like that, lol).
My friends and I had been planning for a friend’s birthday. We diligently planned for the day. The birthday anniversary was June 13, 2020.
THEIR GAME PLAN: Few days to the event, the surprise crew called to inform me about the dress code. I had no idea that they were preparing me for my proposal which was happening the same day. My boyfriend had made plans with them. I ensured I had everything ready for the day.
Fast forward to the day, we arrived at my friend’s place to surprise her (with a birthday party). She was amazed and very happy.
THE STAGE & MOMENT: Next, we decided to step out and take some pictures. While we were returning, I didn’t realize I was the one taking the lead in front. I opened the door, and to my surprise, there was my man inside the room brightened up with lighted candles and petals.
I felt lost and shocked! I kept asking my friends what was going on and how Kolawole (my guy) got to know this place.
While I was trying to understand (what was really going on), my boyfriend got on one knee and asked me to marry him.
Of course, I said YES!
He is proof that God makes all things beautiful in his own time. I introduced him to my family as the man I would be spending the rest of my life with.
Groom Gushes About His Trophy Wife
Meeting each other was fate, becoming friends was a choice and falling in love with each other was beyond our control.
Everything in life happens for a reason, everyone we meet, we meet for a purpose. I thank God for the university I attended. Without it, I wouldn’t have met Damilola. This has been the best decision I made in my life and I am grateful to God.
Ever since I met her (Damilola), she has redefined so many parts of my life and always focused on me achieving my set goals. She isn’t just beautiful, but she got the brain and sauce.
Oluwadamilola is wonderfully and fearfully made by God. She is a firm believer in God and the word of God. The best days of my life are ahead, and I look forward to sharing my forever with her.
