Ah! I have a lot of articles written for this month but it’s so special I had to pend them all for all my beautiful people getting married. They have been my day one fam and it feels my heart with joy to see them not just fall in love but get married to each other.
The Love story of Ebak and Abby is one I really admire, not because we have been friends since way back but because they stayed with each other through the years and never left.
So for y’all who want all the Gist of the love story, you are welcome!
I asked the groom to be a few questions and here’s what he had to say;
Apart from being high school mates when did the friendship really start?
Our friendship started when we graduated from high school. We were always communicating over the internet. Then we became quite close to the point where we would keep talking for hours non stop on phone. My roommates back in uni then would be like “are you sure you guys are just close friends? ” …then I’d laugh about it and tell them yh we’re close friends.
At what point did the friendship blossom into a relationship?
At the final year of my first degree, we were already so close, we’d go on and on talking about different things that affects us. Advising each other whenever there is anything to be solved. I would say we grew with each other… from just high school colleagues to friends to close friends. At the point when I was sure it was high time we take it to another level, I didn’t ask her immediately, I prayed about it. Then I went on to express my feelings to her… she was like she can’t rush into any decision, that I should go and pray about it again, she also said she’d pray about it and all. I kept on asking her and asking her …until she finally said she was convinced. That, at that time was the happiest day of my life
What are the qualities you admire most in Abby?
Quite a lot, but those that stand out the most; Her love for God and openness. The rest is between me and her 😜
What was the Proposal like, I remember seeing pictures of it at the time but how did you pull it off?
I used to think proposal, wedding and all those things were easy. When it was my turn, I did a lot of research on the internet for proposal ideas and engagement rings (finding the right ring was a big work itself). I already planed on proposing at the cinema a week before we traveled on holiday to Canada but then we had a lot trying to sort out for our trip. So I went with plan b. The CN tower in Toronto, she didn’t see it coming, she thought we were just going for sight seeing and them am like oh wow …theres a restaurant at the cntower (360 restaurant), let’s try it, we got there, booked a table and went in, that was easy because she likes trying new things especially restaurant. I had already made arrangements with the restaurant before then to prepare the proposal message on her plate when it was time for desert. When she saw it… (Will you marry me? Abiola)
she was so surprised …I knelt down immediately told her a simple statement and asked her and she shouted yes. I was so happy.
How would you describe your anticipation of forever with her?
It’s an exciting feeling as we’ll start living together, with our own life and our own family I actually can see both of us in our old age together, trying new things, traveling, like we usually do in our spare time, loving each other and most of all, loving God.
Beautiful Love Story…. I wish you two an amazing journey ahead and may your love never grow cold. Ebak and Abby are getting married on the 18th of March, it’s going to be turnt!
