A True Love Story: The Make Up Artist, The Chief Cook and The Olumo Rock Proposal - Teju & Adeyinka

I coveted you. I had no right to want you , but I reached out and took you anyway. And now look what's become of you.....
We have featured proposals that happened at restaurants, churches, offices, beach, resort centers, and more but this is a first of its kind.

He proposed on top of a rock!

Teju of Makeover by Teju got married on the 22nd of December, 2015 to her Prince Charming, Adeyinka.

Read their love and proposal story as narrated by the bride below:

One Thursday, in October 2013, we met in Church. As a chorister and worker, we sort of know everyone’s face, but one weekly service I reluctantly decided to go to church after work and then I noticed this new guy starring hard, that kind of stare where you catch him and he still does not move his eyes, I was like creepy. 

I choose you. And I'll choose you over and over and over without pause, without a doubt, in a heart beat, I'd keep choosing you....

After that, he went to talk to his sister that he wanted a wife (he just got back from the UK).

Sometimes, the girl that's been there for everyone else, needs someone to be there for her

He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh this hard!!!causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold onto him and give him the most you can. He might not quote poetry, he also might be thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect for more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard,Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you & mine is Adeyinka
 His sister started showing him photos of single fine sisters in the church and he saw mine and that was it. I have always asked women, how do you know he is the one? And they are like, you will know don’t worry and somehow I knew. My mum fell inlove with his food (he is an awesome cook) and every weekend was one delicacy or the other for my family) infact, they all fell (even my siblings) for it. 

Bridal shower
Things soon got serious between us and when February 14, 2015 came, I was already thinking he will propose but oops nothing happened. Days later, on the 22nd of February 2014, he said let’s go to Olumo rock. I am not the adventurous type but i agreed. 

After we climbed to the peak of the rock, he knelt and proposed saying Olumo means God has molded it and this love i have built is on solid rock.

Of course, I didn’t say no.

Now check out SOME of their wedding photos as captured by Qoop Photos
