When Rejoice met Lasbry, she wasn’t looking for love! They met briefly in 2009 and it took Lasbry three unforgettable years to get Rejoice’s contact details from her mum. Ever since Lasbry called Rejoice one beautiful morning in December 2012, their love gradually sparked and blossomed. ‘I found the man of my dreams; the man I have ever prayed for’ says Rejoice excitedly.
We absolutely enjoyed their beautiful love story and their lovely engagement session photos.
How They Met
I met Lasbry in 2009 in a store, I was too unsettled to even look at him. That day he pushed it so hard but I didn’t even wanna hear him talk ( not knowing he is a family friend). I received a call in December 2012, the caller introduced himself as Lasbry and started giving a lot of explanation of how he has being looking for me and finally bumped into my mum who gave him my number. Our friendship started from there and graduated into a relationship that I am in love with today. In the course of our relationship, I figured he is God fearing, lovely, humble and hard working and you know it hit the next level.
The Romantic Proposal
Lasbry would always talk about marriage and I would shy away from it. I guess he insisted this time. We just came back from a sit out with my cousins and friends. He asked me to close my eyes and I refused because the last time I did that he scared shit Outta me but this time he insisted and I did. He led me to the ring and sat me down, before my eyes were open, he was kneeling with the ring. His words struck me, he said ‘ I have being waiting for this moment for a long time, forgive me for being shy but I love you beyond words and I just want it for eternity in a special way, marry me and after I said Yes, I was so in a hurry to get a big hug when he held me back and said, I want this marriage to build on the foundation of Christ so please let’s make it happen. With tears rolling down my chin, We prayed and finally I got my big hug and more *wink*. I felt more love afterwards.
