Sometimes, you never can tell who the day may bring your way. For Temi and Wale, it was a night of bowling with friends. Today, we’re drooling over their sweet BN Bling moment!
Temi had met Wale for the first time when she honoured an invite to bowl with some friends. The two connected almost immediately and they could very well say that they had met their soulmates. Now the word “forever” is becoming a reality as the gentleman went on the knee and asked the beautiful Temi to marry him. Of course, she said yes! Temi gives us the full gist of how they got together and how Wale popped the big question. Keep scrolling to find out.
Enjoy their lovely photos from the surprise proposal below.
Their love story as shared by Temi:
Wale and I met a little over three years ago. My friend knew his friend, who invited us for a night of bowling. Wale picked us up, and as soon as I got in the car with him, I could feel our energies connect.
We became bowling partners, and we’ve been life partners ever since. We are best friends; he knows me like the back of his hand. He is so loving, kind, and protective of me.
I love Wale because he has always made his intentions known, of wanting to be serious, of wanting to have a family. Wale is a positive influence in my life, and he has always pushed me to reach for the stars.
He got me thinking differently in all areas of my life; he is such an excellent teacher. When you find something unique, you never want to let it go.
Here’s how Wale popped the big question:
With the proposal, I had no idea, not a single hint. We had just bought a house, and I was busy moving my things, decorating, and getting things ready. Wale’s birthday was Saturday, and on Friday, he said he had planned a photoshoot for his birthday and wanted me to be in it.
I consulted my mom, who curated a dress with her tailor in Nigeria. When we got to the photoshoot, I was stunned there was no photographer but some familiar faces. I was in awe, but little did I know that all our friends and family were hiding upstairs.
As soon as he put the beautiful ring on my finger, they all came out; I looked up and immediately fell to my knees! It was the best surprise of my life. I was so happy to share our love with those closest to us.
Wale has always gone above and beyond to make me feel loved. And I am excited to start our forever journey together in our new home.
