Love is truly one of the best things to happen to anyone. We can’t help but get absolutely excited seeing people find love and decide to keep it forever. Today, our excitement is off the roof and it’s all thanks to Abimbola and her sweetheart, Adeniran.
Abimbola and Adeniran were initially just friends. Then slowly, the friendship blossomed into something even more amazing and now, it’s a forever love song for them! Abimbola tells us how it all went down and you can read it all as you scroll.
The two decided to take their love to the next level. After their Yoruba traditional engagement, they said their “I DO” in a beautiful white wedding ceremony and it was so many shades of beautiful. Abimbola was such a chic bride and Adeniran came through dapper as well. The celebration went several notches higher as they moved to the reception and after-party. Everything about this wedding will have you smiling for the rest of the day.
Enjoy their beautiful wedding photos and love story below.
Their love story as shared by Abimbola:
Deniran and I have been friends, but the cool thing that happened was… he saw this picture that I had posted in 2017 (the most random picture ever) and he reached out immediately after I had posted it.
We got talking and weeks after, he asked if I was still single. I said yes. He said something about asking for a friend, then later said he is that friend!
I was on my spiritual journey and he said, “there are no rules against building a relationship with God and with me at the same time.” I still insisted I needed some time and he agreed so we just grew as friends.
Let’s head over to Adeniran as he also gets prepped.
We talked daily across our time zones and we gradually talked till our days somehow became synchronized. He would stay up really late to talk to me for hours before we would realize it is past 8 PM (my time) and 1 AM his time yet we would struggle to end the call.
He asked again about the boyfriend-ship in 2019. Bro was bent on that confirmation (just so I don’t friend-zone him since I had gotten way too comfortable). So I told him Yes.
Let’s take it to church! 🥰
He was already cool with all my brothers (I’m the only girl among 5 brothers). So he just had to have that talk with my parents.
Then he proposed and here we are. Many years, lots of flights, unending lockdowns and variants after… I am blessed to say yes to this wonderful man!
Now, it’s time to party! 😅
Let the party begin!
The magic of the first dance…
Now, it’s party after party! 😅
