They say when love is meant to be, nothing can stop it. Love birds, Tolani and Nebo totally agree with this as their love withstood the hurdles of long-distance and now, it’s a forever thing!
Tolani and Nebo met as college students and an unlikely friendship started when Nebo who was fond of teasing Tolani sent her a random message. Things took a turn for the best from then on, as they went from familiar faces in college, to lovers! Now, the two are ready to share a lifetime together and we’re absolutely excited for them. Today, we get to enjoy their beautiful pre-wedding photos and all the chemistry that is sizzling from them!

Their love story as shared by Tolani:
We went to the same college. To be honest, I found him a little annoying at first. He would always tease me (and still does to date!). One day, during the holiday break, while I was at home, I got a message from him saying, “how are you?”… and the rest is history!
He graduated a year before I did. So, we had a long-distance relationship during my final year. I thought we would physically be in the same city after my graduation but I went on to further my studies. This affected our being in the same city for another 2 years. Then, I started working and he decided to do his Masters’ putting us another 2 years physically apart.
Despite these setbacks, we both knew we would end up together and everything would work out. Although it seemed to have taken some time, everything happened exactly how it was supposed to happen. When someone is so caring, funny, intelligent, selfless, kind, and so rare… why wouldn’t you wait? If we didn’t meet in this lifetime, I truly believe we would in another.
Here’s how Nebo popped the question:
It happened on Valentine’s Day. He told me he had dinner reservations. He kept rushing me to get done at a certain time which is unlike him (I’m usually always late to our dinner dates). But I didn’t pay any attention. We finally got to the “location” and as we started walking towards the water, I began to get confused because the surrounding didn’t have any restaurants. Then, he pulled me a little to the side and got on one knee. I said yes before he even asked! He still asked anyway. I said yes, yes, yes!!
