Yewande & Lani: My Cheri Amour

When God talks to you about the woman you will spend the rest of your life with, you will know, you will not doubt it for a second. That is exactly what happened to my homie Lani, they are such a beautiful couple. We wish Yewande and Lani all the happiness they desire. They shared their pre wedding pictures and story with us. Enjoy...

Yewande's Story
The moment Lani told me of his intention to date, the first thing that came to my mind “see washing... this fine boy wants to put me on a long thing”. We continued as friends for some months, little did I know that the ‘love-bug’ was gonna hit me soon.
Our communication level deepened and at some point, we couldn't do without hearing from each other every day. He liked me...I liked him... :). It was pretty easy for us because we knew where we were headed and exactly what we wanted for our relationship. All I knew was that I wanted nothing more than to be with him. I couldn't imagine myself with anyone else. 

Indeed, He is God's greatest gift to me. I have the strongest conviction that we are gonna have an absolutely amazing life together. He is the most amazing, caring, lovable and sweetest person I know. I love his resilience...He is a 'go-getter' to the core. I have never met someone so determined and unstoppable. He doesn't rest till he gets what he wants. I am so excited because soon I will be marrying my lover, my confidante, and  my best friend! 
We are just getting warmed up! It's gonna be turnt!
 Lani's Story
And it so happened that one day while scrolling through my Instagram timeline, I came across a photo of a certain young lady, elegantly poised, with a bright, warm, friendly smile on her face. She innocently posed for a happy photo with her cousin who was visiting her in the UK. In that very moment, the Holy Spirit ministered to me (just as angel Gabriel appeared to Mary with the good news) “my son, my son the lady you see in that picture is the answer to all your prayers”. On receiving the good news, I acted fast like an obedient son that I am and that was how it all started. :) 
Knowing and growing closer to Yewande has been life changing. I'm not going to say 'wind beneath my wings' because that could be used against me for the rest of my life, but she has indeed made me a better person. I love her with all my heart and look forward to the day I call her my wife. Yes, I know, much shorter than hers, I'm an IT guy, not a writer okay!
