We are totally ready for all the sweet love story and beautiful pre-wedding pictures this year.
Tope and Kayode are already putting us in that sweet mushy mood and it is fine because we are here for all of it and sure that you will be in the same mood as us. This beautiful met while they were both colleagues in the same office ummm, and when it was time to pop the big question, the groom and her friends had the bride plan the entire event and she didn’t even know, lol, imagine. We added a few pictures of the proposal at the end but do check out the full feature here. For now, let’s get into their love story as told by the bride, Tope.
Remember the fun does not stop here, check out more features here.
I met Kayode on the 5th of December, 2015. At the company I was working at the time; they had told us someone was coming to join the company. I walked into the office that morning and saw the black guy, and I immediately knew this had to be the ‘Ghanaian Kayode’. Well, he won’t admit to this, but I believe that our eyes locked for a few minutes as we listened to the whispers of, what we would later call, Love… hahaha.- Tope recalls
We started to interact as colleagues, we didn’t even exchange numbers until later that month when the office was closing for the festive holiday. And he called me first on boxing day, and every night since then! It was strange and unexpected, so when we resumed work in January, I went to ask other colleagues to see if they were also receiving those frequent calls. It turned out, I was the only one he’s been calling every night! Whaaat?!
Well, I confronted him with this and he insisted that he was just enjoying the gift of friendship, nothing more. But he was keeping his options open. For where? I quickly ‘brother-zoned’ him (hahaha). He waited till I left the company, 5 months later, before he started asking me for a relationship.
Even though he ticked ALL my boxes (with some extra) and I was already in love with him; I wasn’t sure if I was ready for a relationship, so I struggled with my conviction and feelings for 6 months. I was just afraid I would mess things up. Our friendship was too pure, too sweet. I waited for scriptures to anchor my feelings. Our relationship was largely distant, but we were grateful for it! Two years and two months later, we started our journey to happily ever after!
Here are few pictures from the surprise proposal, the bride planned by herself without a clue. Do check out the full feature.
