Tola and Wale shared their story and had a pre-wedding shoot in Lagos with DO Weddings and I Cube Photography recently.
The BEGINNING to FOREVER
Our story began in February 2006 at Obafemi Awolowo University (OAU), Ile- Ife. We were both students at the time; we met at one of the most popular lecture theatres called ODLT in OAU. Wale was a student of Electronics and Electrical Engineering while Tola was studying Pharmacy.
On that fateful evening, Wale was at the lecture theatre waiting to receive lectures while Tola was there to read. The lecturer (Prof. Adegboyega) came in and one thing he detests is to have students who were not part of the class to be in attendance, he would chase such students out and seize any of their belongings he could lay his hands on. Wale knew Tola would be in trouble if she remained in the lecture room so he quickly told her she had to leave the lecture room before she got caught. However, that pretty short lecture room incident changed their lives!
Their friendship officially kicked off on Valentine’s night, Wale was walking along Tola’s hostel when he met her best friend – Adeola. She invited him to the room they shared and that’s how the initial kick off began.
Wale met and mingled with all of Tola’s friends like he had known them for years (they all assumed he was the “boyfriend”). All of this time, Tola got to know Wale better in this assumed “boyfriend”, “girlfriend” period. It wasn’t until several months later that Tola officially agreed to a date; she can sure look back now and cherish the memories from that day – Valentine’s Day. For Wale, the wait was definitely worth it!
We are excited to start our lives together as the countdown begins!
