A popular saying goes, “You will fall in love when you least expect it,” Well permit us to add “anywhere” because that’s the love story of Eghe and Kaly.
The sweet romance started off in the banking hall. Imagine Eghe totally wasn’t a fan of going to do bank for transactions but on this day, everything agreed and she met the man of her dreams in the banking hall.
Here’s the bride’s story: I never liked the idea of going into any bank to make transactions because of my phobia for queues, so I always had a bank card (ATM). On the 30th of July, 2015 my atm expired and I had no other option but to enter the bank. Little did I know that I was about to meet the man of my dreams, my soul mate. I got into the bank with a frown on my face and joined the queue. I was scrolling through Instagram on my phone when a gentleman walked up to me and said I wasn’t supposed to use my phone in the banking hall. I looked up at the guy and politely said sorry while the frown gave way to a half smile.
On my way out the same gentleman walked up to me and asked for my Instagram handle. For some strange reasons I gave it to him. This was how our story begun. I gave him tasks, difficult hurdles and presented impossible scenarios but every time with a smile he would say “ I’m going to marry you” On a cold windy Saturday being the 30th of June,2018 this gentleman who asked only for my Instagram handle got down on a knee and asked for my hand and my heart in a way I’ve always wished for and a way I will never forget. I can’t wait to tell our kids. Since that beautiful night my world has changed and we want to live and love everyday like a fairy tale.
Here’s the groom’s story: On Thursday July 30, 2015 I said a prayer while leaving my house “Dear Lord order my steps”. It was a business day as usual till I walked into the office to someone that would change my life for the best. We had an awkward conversation known to just us and our close friends and we exchanged Instagram handles.
The first message I ever sent to her read “A man with dreams needs a woman with vision” with that message life as we knew it changed. We first became chat mates then talk mates graduated to friends then best friends and now partners “we started dating somewhere in between” lol. Fast forward to Saturday, June 30 2018 with the help of family and friends we pulled a pleasant surprise and then I asked her not only to marry me but to come and share my dreams with me.
Life for us since we met has been a roller coaster. We laugh, learn, goof, love, play and live everyday like it’s the first day we met and like it’s the last day we’ll live. I, a man with dreams have now met my woman with a vision.
Now after getting to know each other, they embark on the journey of forever as they count down to . See more of their engagement photos below.
