A True Love story: The bread, the butter and UNILAG - Joan & Lanre

All I need in this life of sin, is me and my girlfriend
It’s amazing how a bread and butter conversation spearheads this true love story!
Beautiful couple, Joan and Lanre met in 2008 at the university of Lagos and in a few days, they will be tying the knot in the presence of close family and friends.
Read their love story and check out their prewedding photos as shared with us below:

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).  I got attracted to him, that was the beginning of this beautiful journey, although, at first I saw him as a friend and but the relationship evolved four months after.

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.


“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 had 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 my one and only omocoche (beautiful child).
Now check on their prewedding shots:
I like playful relationships. I'll call you a dumbass and a goat cause saying 'babe' everytime gets old. I'll bite you. I'll laugh at you. I'll push your buttons just to see you get mad cause it's cute. I'd smack you playfully and hold you from behind. I'll make stupid faces with you. We'll do stupid things together....
Cause I'm A Dreamer... And You're The Dream!!!
I Think Our Love Can Do Whatever We Want It To...
I can't read lips unless they are touching mine.
Hey kfber, One day, someone would hug you so tight, all of your broken pieces would stick back together.
Faith makes certain things possible... Love makes them Easy!!
Life Only Comes Around Once. So Do Whatever Makes You Happy And Be With Whoever Makes You Smile.
And May Love and Laughter Light your days and Warm your hearts
"If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day so I never have to live without you."
I don't love you because you're perfect, I love you in spite of the fact that you're not
I would rather spend one lifetime with you, than face all the ages of this world alone.
If I know what love is, it is because of you.
Where there is love there is life
For you, my heart will never break. For you, my smile will never fade. And for you, my love will never end. I love you.
I finally got my past, present, and future tenses correct today: I love you, I loved you, and I will love you forever and always!
You make me feel like the luckiest man/woman in the world.
The easiest part was getting to know you. The hardest part was being apart from you. The BEST part is being WITH you.
