The words of the old song-Nothing can stop us now by Rick Price is definitely ringing in our hearts just because of this couple.
Omotoyosi and Adedamola‘s wedding was scheduled for the 9th & 11th of April but COVID-19 happened. They got stuck in different states and could not see each other because of the travel ban. Fortunately, the inter-state travel ban was lifted and so they tied the knot over the last weekend in an intimate civil wedding with a few guests in attendance. If you haven’t seen their pre-wedding shoot, you should totally catch up here.
The bride, Omotoyosi shared this on her Instagram page:
My man, my ride or die. The most consistent guy ever, you have patiently watched me grow into a woman. May we continue to love like the sky; without limits. My vow is to be more like you because you make loving look so easy and keep trying to be the best you can be for me. That smile when you haven’t seen your boo in months due to covid and flight ban. Wedding was supposed to be on the 9th and 11th of April but GOD had a better date for us. In the presence of family and few friends I got married to my man. We turn up later!!!!Thanks be to GOD, the way maker.
Here’s how their love story played out according to the bride, Omotoyosi:
Damola practically came knocking on my door, in my mind, I’m like who is the cute guy. He came to the house to see my older sister, apparently, they served in the same NYSC camp in 2013. We gisted for a bit, he never asked about me from my sister and I was a bit disappointed. But I was just 17 then. Fast forward to 2014, I saw him at my sister’s wedding and I totally ignored him because he never reached out back then.
Fast forward to 2015, I met him at a restaurant I followed a friend to, he walked up to me and said: “hi, do you remember me?”. We exchanged numbers and he messaged me sometime in 2016 ?, it was honestly the longest wait ever. But he messaged me at the perfect time, it was two days after my relationship ended. He was also at a better place in his life religiously. I call him Mr Perfect Timing because he has such good timing.
So we started talking over the phone because I was away at that time. When he was ready to ask me out, he called my sister to inform her of how he felt and that he wanted to have a serious relationship with me. He was just so consistent and real with me, it was unbelievable. He has always made it easy to talk to him about any and everything even my craziest thoughts and feelings.
He proposed to me in 2019 with his friends and dad holding the “Will you marry Damola?” placard. It was just so sweet and thoughtful. Our wedding was supposed to be on the 9&11th of April but COVID happened. We were stuck in different states initially, it wasn’t so difficult but the flight ban kept getting longer. It was quite challenging knowing we were supposed to be married since April but we couldn’t get married or even see one another. Luckily we had great support in friends and family who continued to encourage us. Finally, we got married in an intimate ceremony on the 9th of July. We will have a traditional wedding and reception turn up later!!
