Dee and I were classmates and members of the same club (LIVA Youth Forum) back in the university but I never noticed him until during the planning of the end-of-year get together in 2005. At the party, we danced together all night. In fact, I refused to dance with any other guy. What endeared me to him was that he didn't dance roughly like most guys did. During the Xmas holidays, we contacted each other and became friends. By January 2006 after the holidays, we became study partners (a course that readily comes to mind is the almighty EEE 231). Fifteen months after our first dance, we started dating. Fast forward…May 9, 2015…We are getting married!
A lot of times in life, you get the good things when you ain’t even looking for one. Dee is such an amazing person; he debunked whatsoever rumours and became my friend...with no 'hidden intentions' like most guys will do. Really, it’s not about a lady being ‘strict’ or ‘principled’ or 'choleric' or 'strong-faced' or whatever it’s called. It’s about the guy being brave, seeing what others cannot see, and smart enough to dare all odds. And I've got me a really smart, brave, smashing dude for a husband

The Groom-to-be: Adeolu Adekola
As a freshman in the university, you had a perception of the girls to approach and the ones to dine with, ‘with a long spoon’. As coursemates I had marked her down in the latter group simply because I felt she was too ‘strong-faced’ for a lady. 2nd year arrives and providence lands us in the same team while planning for the end of the year (2005) get together for the NGO-club we both belonged to – LIVA youth forum. All the while as coursemates and club members we never spoke to each other. But while planning for the event, her intelligence struck me at once and I began to change my previous perception. The party was tight and we had a couple of dance – infact she happened to be the only one I danced with all night. We exchanged numbers, became friends, study partners, and very good friends all within a year and three months after which we started dating.
The rest, as they say, is history! They say you rarely meet ‘wife material’ at a party….. Well, I am an exception to that notion and in May, I have found the ONE that complements and completes me!
Weddings N Style is looking forward to their wedding in Ibadan come May 2015.
