You could start your day with particular plans in place, not knowing that love has arranged a sweet detour ahead. For Jennie, it was a simple birthday visit to a friend after class, but for Cupid, it was the perfect set-up for something magical.
She met Kayode and her charming smile and soothing voice were all it took to steal his heart. Thanks to their mutual friend, he got her phone number, and 9 years later, the feeling he had since the first day he set eyes on her hasn’t waned. He planned a romantic rooftop proposal which Jennie never saw coming. She thought she was attending a wedding but alas, she walked into her own proposal! Kayode asked her to marry him and with the response “Yes,” they made a promise of a future written in the language of love. Their proposal photos are so beautiful and each frame is a tale of the magical love that they share.
Enjoy their proposal photos and love story below:
Their love story as shared by Jennie:
Kay and I met through a mutual friend in 2015. It was the said friend’s birthday and I had just returned from class and went to wish him a happy birthday. I noticed someone tall and handsome staring at me and he proceeded to say “Hi” which I replied “Hello” with a smile and wave. Didn’t think much of it until our said friend came to me some days later and told me “A fe gbe isu wa oo” meaning “we want to bring yam ooo” in Yoruba. At first, I was confused like yam for what?? Then he told me that his friend was interested in me and wanted my number. I refused at first because I was like “So he can’t come to me himself Abi??? I smell pride.” After small shakara, I eventually agreed to give him my number. We agreed to meet and he was the loveliest person ever. Very shy and cute and before i knew it, feelings I didn’t know were there began to blossom.
Nine years later, and I can’t wait to walk down the aisle with this beautiful man of mine. On the day of the proposal, I didn’t have the slightest idea. Kay is usually bad at surprises and I always find out eventually. So imagine my surprise that day when i walked into the venue and saw all of that. My close friend told me we were going to a wedding and since it was impromptu, I shouldn’t worry about getting the asoebi as she has already sorted that out. She was sooo convincing and because we always go out together…I didn’t suspect anything. Kay even made sure he got another dress for me to change after the surprise. It was the most beautiful proposal ever as it was everything I wanted.
Their love story as shared by Kayode:
The first time I saw Jennie was when I went to visit my friend who lived at her hostel back then in school. It was his birthday and she had just come back from class. She came into the room to wish him a happy birthday. She had the most gorgeous smile and it melted my heart immediately. She was very soft spoken and jovial and I couldn’t resist saying ‘Hi’ to her. My heart skipped a beat when she smiled at me and said “hello” with a wave. It was the most beautiful smile I had ever seen. I knew from that moment I wanted her to be mine forever. She gave a bit of tough time, very strong willed woman but it was all worth it in the end.
Yes, Kayode got his baby girl a second outfit for the occasion 😍
