A beautiful Yoruba traditional wedding for your viewing pleasure guys, courtesy of Godwin Oisi Photography. The lovely couple, Folu and Tope’s pre-wedding photos was shared a while back, see HERE. And today, here are some photos…..enjoy!
She is that kind of a woman that walks into a room and every guy would turn and ask “who is that lady?”.That was exactly what happened on one hot Wednesday afternoon when she walks into our office…I turned and asked the guy beside me “Dude, who is that?” And feeling like he had won a prize,grinning from ear to ear, Ikenna said “ohh that’s Foluso,the new corper” and then I looked at her and that was all…I wasnt really blown but I was caught.
I saw her around a lot after but didn’t get a chance to say hello till about 2weeks later,it was brief and hasty but then it was enough.
We were just the ‘hi’, ‘hello’, ‘how are you’ friends for a long time…I think I was too shy to say more than three syllables around her.lol.
But then when I was leaving my former employer to somewhere else,I sent her a short ‘love note’ which was never returned or acknowledged.
It pained me o and I pretty much gave up after that but then like a wound that won’t heal she was registered in my heart.A couple of months later, a friend put wished her happy birthday on bbm,so I got her bbm pin,added her and re-introduced myself.I won’t forget that day and I remembered asking “do you have a boyfriend” and she replied “no” and I answered “I didn’t know” and she replied “did you ever ask?”.
I made a mental note to always ask.so I kept asking and asking till she said yes.It was like a second chance and when God gives you a second chance,men you don’t want to squander it.
Folu’s side of the story
Though he would never have believed and always still disagrees that he was just ‘one of those guys’ back then, but he always seemed nice. I had caught him a couple of times staring at me. He would never agree to that too…I always get that anyways so it wasn’t a biggie…
I however noticed how our paths always crosses by ‘accident’; the elevator door about to close and he walks in, smiles and stands beside me, I am eating in the lunch room and there’s a voice “is anybody here?” asking at the sit beside me, I am at the ATM lobby withdrawing cash and he is the one waiting behind me…but just like I said , there were several coincidences and working together in the same organization, our paths were bound to cross…
He sent me a mail when he was leaving for another firm and told me to keep in touch,but really why would I keep in touch. I deleted it.
He re-surfaced during my birthday wishing me well and stylishly asked what my boyfriend got for me.I pitied him and told him I was single. He was shocked and said “I didn’t know”,but dude you never asked.
We have been inseparable ever since. He is the best thing that has ever happened to me.
Congratulations Folu & Tope, may GOD bless your marriage forever!
