Our Love Story
by the bride, Promise
I first met Akinola back in 2003 when we attended a SAT preparatory school in Lekki, Lagos. The first thing I remember noticing about him was that he looked smart, he was so cute, had cheeks for days also his eyes which I found to be attractive. We became friends up until we lost touch in 2005 shortly after we had departed for school. We eventually reconnected in 2011 and it has been a wonderful journey, to get back to this point. He is my best friend and my greatest fan and I am so madly in love with him. I can’t wait to be called Mrs. Akinola Oluwasanmi Shadiya.

I met Promise back in 2003 while we were both attending university preparatory school in Nigeria. We became friends and although we were not dating, I could sense a genuinely warm personality. Unfortunately, we slowly lost touch as we began new lives in our respective colleges but thank God for granting me the privilege for our paths to cross again. Vendors
