Joanne Udeochu and Chris Tillman got engaged recently after dating for 5 years. The bride-to-be shared their story with us. Enjoy the couple’s story, pictures and video below;
Our love story started over 5 years ago and since then Chris and I have developed a strong, loving, God filled relationship, that concurs all!
The day Chris asked me to be his wife, was the most beautiful day of my life!!! Chris planned it to the T and he couldn’t have done a better job.
I had recently accepted a new job, which was long awaited after tireless searches to secure better employment following getting my masters degree in public health. My Friday was so easy breezy; I went to the gym in the morning, spent hours at the mall, spent some time with my grandmother, followed by dinner and drinks with my sisters.
My older sister Juliet planned the whole thing to celebrate my new job, so we got all dolled up for a good time at a restaurant in the Hollywood hills with a view of the city. Little did I know, she had something else up her sleeve! As I sat at the table my sister presented me with a large gift box that she said was a congratulatory gift.
I opened the box to find a heart-shaped box inside, then opened that to find a smaller heart-shaped box, then a smaller box, then a smaller box (by this time I started to get nervous because I just knew that this production was not put on by my sister), then the last box was small little blue Tiffany’s box!!! I froze. Then all of a sudden Chris was behind me and my heart was beating uncontrollably. He took the box from my hand and proceeded to get down on one knee and ask for my hand in marriage and I said yes!!!Our love story has now entered into another chapter and I am so excited to get married, have kids, and spend the rest of my life with my best friend, my partner, and the love of my life!!! The future Mr. and Mrs. Tillman #joanneloveschris2014
We wish Joanne and Chris all the best and cannot wait to feature their wedding 🙂
