Welcome back to lovers! Today we celebrate the joyous union of Princess Teju and Prince Dapo’s royal Yoruba traditional wedding affair that is full to the brim with rich and sophisticated elements. (See their gorgeous pre-wedding photos HERE.)
We loved all the rich details and vividness of the decor choice and Teju was a beauty to behold in her sophisticated swavroski and pearl embellished mustard yellow and black aso-oke combo. Dapo wore a matching agbada, with damask lining and the two looked absolutely gorgeous.
As always, Klala Photography captured all the vivid moments that would make you feel like you were right there in that venue.
How They Met:
I met Dapo sometime around December 2012 after a show where I was getting a drink, he walked up to me smiled and paid for my drink and said “you know I’m going to marry you one day?” I was like who is this cocky arrogant guy? I told him I had a boyfriend he said he was sure I would have one but someday we will end up together….he didn’t get my number we didn’t exchange anything.
Fast forward to April last year after church one Sunday, someone tapped me and said “hi wifey” I looked back and saw him I’m like you again it was kind of funny though we got talking and I kinda realised we had everything in common. I always wanted and prayed for a certain kind of guy , and this guy fit the bill to perfection and to crown it all I realised we were birthday mates it felt like a dream. I knew in my heart I had found my soulmate.
How He Proposed:
One beautiful Friday in February, he came to get me at work and said we were going to Inagbe resort, I was kinda excited, I didn’t even think anything crazy at that point.We were taking a walk along the beach now that I think about it he was looking kinda nervous I should have known lol…
He said to me “Do you remember the first time i met you that i said i would marry you one day? I said yes i do.He said he saw me talking to my friends i wasn’t doing anything fancy i was eating a burger I even had ketchup on my cheek I was obviously hungry and tired but I had this shy smile on my face that made him know everything will be okay for some reason he just fell for me…in my mind I’m like lyrics…lol then he stopped and said ‘I love you.
I love you more than any man has ever loved any woman in the history of the world, I’m not perfect I will make mistakes but I will always be there to tell you I’m sorry and everything will be okay and i’ll mean it because it will be the truth, nothing else matters my whole world from this day forward I dedicate to making you happy all you have to do is be my wife”needless to say i haven’t cried so much in my life he got down on one knee I think i was screaming yes before the knee touched the floor lolI can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him and share every birthday with him. Hopefully we have twins so we can all have double birthdays lol
Congrats you two, wishing you both a blessed marriage.
