Two heart shining brightly as one!

Joan and Lanre met in 2008 at the University of Lagos. They where students of the same faculty but never met until then. They where friends for 4months and then began a relationship. In April 2015 Lanre asked Joan to marry him and Joan accepted with a big YES.

Joan

Our meeting was just the Almighty God’s doing. No one orchestrated it but God himself. His timing was perfect! I met Lanre early 2008 and the first thing he asked me was to butter his bread (literally) which I did without hesitation.
I noticed how surprised he was that I didn’t hesitate, then we got talking and then I noticed we had a lot in common, and damn! he was also very intelligent and had his way with words (even his friends can testify). Then I got attracted to him, that was the beginning of this beautiful journey, although, at first I saw him as a friend and then the relationship evolved.
I bless God for the day I met him. Over the years I have come to see him as my brother and also my best friend because he makes me see what I don’t even see in myself. He’s not only intelligent, he’s the man I want to spend the rest of my life with. I love you my Olanrewaju.

Lanre

“Can you help me butter my bread? And she said ‘yes'”. I remember those words now, they are golden. It’s a simple question that is being asked every day, I asked that same question that very day and I got more than a buttered bread. I got a woman who is beautiful, intelligent, understanding, caring, supportive, my ride or die, your name says it all Oluwagboadurami (God answered my prayer that day).
I never had any intention to ask her out, I was just looking for a friendly banter. Only if I knew the banter would lead to something so gracious. I guess providence smiled on me and made me meet this rare gem. Joan came in to my life and she impacted it. It has been fun all the way.
There have been challenges and we have had our ups and downs, but I thank God for finding my other half. This is the woman who compliments and completes me. If I am asked to do this again and make another choice I will only ask for these things: bread, butter and you… Once I get those ingredients, the choice will be pretty easy for me to make.
I bless the day I met you my one and only Omocoche (beautiful child).

They tied the knot in the presence of close family and friends in the hearth of Lagos, where they will live happily forever after.
