Many times over, we’ve heard sweet and beautiful tales of love, one of our all-time favourites will always be love at first sight. How you can meet someone for the first time ever and just know that you belong together is such a beautiful phenomenon. Still a doubting Thomas? Well, Tomi and Collins are about to clear your doubts about love at first sight!
Tomi and Collins met through their mutual friend and for Collins, it was an instant connection. He knew at that very moment that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with the beauty that is Tomi. The universe surely smiled at that thought and here they are preparing to embark on that forever journey of love. Collins with the help of their mutual friend, Tomi’s sister and a planner, popped the big question in a surprise proposal. Of course, he got a resounding yes! Here we are, gushing over their love and blushing hard at all the lovely photos from their sweet #BNBling moment. Collins in a chat shares with us their love story and how he was able to pull off the surprise. Keep scrolling to read it all.
Enjoy all the photos from their surprise proposal and how Collins shares their love story below.
How did you two meet?
Tomi and I met through our mutual friend, Chioma. I never understood the true meaning of “love at first sight” until I laid eyes on Tomi. That very night I knew she was/is the one! The only one God blessed me with. As they say, the rest to date is history.
Tell us your proposal story
Leading to our proposal, on her 27th birthday I organized a surprise party that didn’t go as planned and that was when I realized I was going to use an event planner or else Tomi was going to find out. Lol! Fast forward to our proposal, I told Chioma how I have always envisioned proposing to my heartbeat and we started making plans. With the help of Tomi’s sister, we got the service of the an planner in Toronto. I knew I needed the a videographer/photographer to capture every moment of this once in a lifetime event, so I called F10 and he understood the assignment.
What’s your favourite thing to do as a couple?
As a couple, we love to pray together, travel together, laugh at each other’s dry jokes because we get each other like that! I love to keep her fit, she loves to keep me fed. We are so excited for the future and what God has in store for us.
How has wedding planning been so far?
It’s been over a month since we’ve been engaged so we just started pretty much. Wedding planning has been so much fun, talking to our parents in-love has been mind blowing! Watching our families get to know each other and come together has been beautiful to see. God really does answer your prayers when you align with his will.
Tell us what you’re mostly looking forward to
I can tell you this, that we are both looking forward to saying, “YES I DO”.
