My Team and I were so excited to shoot Funsho and Mike’s Wedding. All through the day, Funsho was smiling so hard and could not wait to say “I do” to the love of her life. Michael waited in anticipation and was not able to take his eyes off Funsho right after the first look.
The Royal wedding was filled with lots of fun, dancing, and excitement. We wish them God’s blessings as they embark on the journey of marriage.
Their Love story and Wedding photos below:
It all started on a hot August night 4 years ago. My sister, friend and I went to Michael’s sister’s graduation party not knowing that will be the night I meet my soon to be husband. I went to the party dressed my best intending to see an ex but he was not at the party as I anticipated. Michael welcomed us with a bright smile on his face then showed us where the food and refreshments were. As we were eating Michael came for the second time, now with his brothers and baileys in their hands offering us a drink. I thanked him but explained we did not drink alcohol. Michael came the third time and asked why I wasn’t dancing, I explained I didn’t know how to dance, lying so he wouldn’t make me dance. As I chatted with a friend, Michael came the fourth time and our mutual friend introduced him to me. I later took his number trying to be polite. As we were leaving the party, he called us over to a family van filled with assorted drinks. He asked if we wanted anything, we kindly said no but he gave us wine cooler anyways. As we stood outside and talked, a Cadillac pulled up with blue Chrome lights that grasped my friend’s attention. She looked to see who it was and stated: “I think that’s your bobo o”. I looked down to see who she meant and it was Michael. I expressed to my friend that he was trying to show off and the car probably wasn’t his. Days went by and I asked a friend of mine what she knew about him, she explained he was a nice guy so I decided to text him. When I texted him, he said he didn’t remember who I was. I thought “what a jerk” and felt no need to refresh his memory. He then immediately texted me saying he was joking but I chose not to respond. He called a few minutes later laughing saying he was only playing. I told him I will call him later with no intention of calling him back. He later on called me that night but I explained I was going to sleep not wanting to talk. I laid in bed thinking about my past, wanting to just be able to trust someone enough to give my heart to. Michael called the following day and we spoke for hours. I explained to him my future plans and not wanting to waste time with guys who aren’t serious. A couple of days later he asked me to be his girlfriend. I thought this guy barely knew me. God knew I was scared but I decided to give him a chance. The longer we were together, I began seeing Michael as such a kind-hearted man. Which drew me closer to him…which sparked the beginning of our forever.
I remember it like it was yesterday at my sister’s graduation party, the day I met Oluwafunsho. I was helping out with the event, making sure everyone at the party had what they needed. My brothers and I spotted three ladies at the party but one of them looked mature than the rest, so I made it my mission to talk to her. While I was strategizing, I saw a male friend of mine so we sat and talked. He’s been in a long-term relationship for years so we started talking about love. I mentioned love wasn’t for me because I have tried so many times and it just fails. He said “love is for everyone” and I kept repeating, it wasn’t made for me. I then decided to make a move, I asked if the ladies were interested in some of the adult beverages we had, she said no in a nice way so I left the table they were sitting on. Later on, I saw my sister’s friend talking to the girls, so I stopped by once more to reintroduce myself with a smile. We made short conversation about what her name was and if she was having a good time. Soon after the conversation, I asked if I could take her out sometime and for her number. She said no and I asked if I could give her my number, she thought about it and said why not. Later that night when everyone was leaving, she helped with cleaning up which I thought was nice. When she stepped outside, I went in my car to drive past her just to show off my new Chrome rims on my Cadillac CTS. I went to the car where all the alcohol was at and I gave one each to all the three ladies. They kept saying “we don’t drink, we don’t drink” but I convinced them to take it. It was a Saturday night I remember and there was another number I got that night, she was a good friend of my sisters. Sunday past, none of them called or texted. Monday afternoon I got a call from my sister’s friend. We both had a long Conversation about love and friendship. After leaving work that Monday afternoon, I got a text from Funsho and I pretended that I didn’t know it was her. She wasn’t pleased with the way I acted and she stopped responding, I said I was just joking. She said I will call you later on tonight. My thought was “oh well she’s not going to call” it was 12am and she called saying she was about to go to bed. I was surprised and I said ok goodnight. The next day I got a weird text from her and I called right after. She picked up and I said you just texted me? She said no, at first I thought she was lying so I ignored it, she said she was busy and she will call me back that night. She called around 11pm that night and we talked for hours till we fell asleep. The same thing happened throughout that week. Until this day, she still doesn’t know how I got that text.
