How romantic…aww! Photographer, Jide Kola proposed to his sweetheart, Cynthia in Dubai! The lovely bride-to-be wanted an intimate proposal with only her close family, her brother and best friend present, and clearly Jide paid attention as she had no clue what was about to go down, the shock and joy on her face. Priceless!
Congrats you two! Read the details of their proposal below, be inspired!
Jide had been owing me a vacation to Dubai for so long, in fact I had a Dubai flight ticket that had been rescheduled more than thrice, because there’s always one wedding or the other making him busy. I can’t complain too much, I’m dating a workaholic.
I’ve always wanted an intimate proposal, but with the most important people to me involved – my brother and my best friends. I believe I might have mentioned this in passing and he was attentive enough to catch it (don’t wanna give him the credit of being so accurate with his plan ).
We packed for the trip, Dubai here we come… Finally! I searched his whole house for a ring, the whole travel boxes… No ring; so this guy won’t propose to me in this our Dubai Waka. When we got to Dubai, he took me shopping to buy a dress and said we were going to a house party with his long time friend that lives in Dubai, i tried on a few dresses and we arrived at one. I should have guessed.
We left for the party later that evening, his long time friend took us there, and on opening the door to the “house party”; boom! It was our pictures, and balloons and rose petals, with gentle music playing in the background. He led me to the balcony and I saw four of our closest friends holding balloons. Nobody told me y’all were in Dubai
Just when I thought the surprise was over, then comes my brother, my only sibling walking in with the ring in his hand… My brother was the ring bearer I didn’t even know when I screamed out loud. Jide was on his knees and started his proposal speech, let me confess, I didn’t hear a thing… Everything was just too beautiful, the man of my dreams on his knees, my perfect ring – a big rock, the ambience.
I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with this superman… workaholic… fire dancer… creative eyes… footballer… computer whiz… Jidekola.
I’m so proud to be “Jide’s Queen”
