How We Met
By the bride, Anita
We met through a mutual friend on July 16th 2010 and we connected instantly, God bless that day! We became very close friends and started dating in 1 year. I love everything about Yemi, he’s the most loyal friend anybody can ask for, he taught me how to love, he’s patient and caring. Always pushing me to be a better person.
The first 4 years of our relationship, Yemi was in Lagos and I was in Abuja, the distance wasn’t easy but he was very devoted to making us work.
It’s been 7 years of genuine friendship and love, I can’t wait to share the rest of my life with you, to be my second self and best earthly companion.
From the groom, Olayemi
July 16th 2010, you brightened up my morning, I knew from that moment I’d share my life with you. Talking with you, laughing with you, going through tough times with you, it’s been 7 years of bliss. Putting my heart in your hands has been the best decision I ever made. Every part of our lives is perfect because of you.

Yemi proposed 9th July 2016. OMG it was so beautiful!
He was Lagos and was going to travel out of the country for a course, he asked me to come see him before he travelled. I left Abuja to Lagos, and he said we should go see a movie with some of his friends we usually hang out with at a private cinema.
We got there, watched a movie and at the end of the movie, I started seeing my pictures on the screen with music playing in the background and Yemi came to kneel down with a ring! I was so surprised because I never suspected a thing!
I knelt down too out of confusion! Next thing I see my friends there out of the blues, like where did you guys come out from?! I couldn’t even read what was being displayed on screen again. Everyone wanted a picture and was screaming, he asked me to be his wife and I said YES! That day was so beautiful, I felt so special and I’m just grateful to God for the love we share.
