Temi and Maurice have been married for a little over a year now but their love story is still etched in our hearts. It was melanin-popping weekend in France and oh boy they delivered. Should we talk about the Leg work levels of Maurice or the beautiful picturesque pictures from the wedding by @arjphotographyuk. It was all shades of gorgeous. Today I am going to be sharing with you all, their love story, which above all is the core center of the whole event.
He attended our church that first Sunday and some of us went up to him and asked him to join the worship team at the church and damn, he could sing. It started out as a beautiful friendship and it slowly developed into something more, something bigger, and something that looked like forever. When we went out on our first date I remember how excited I was, when I got back, I remember telling my friend Kristal that I have a boyfriend. Lol. I believe so much in living purposefully, I believe that our marriages should put something in this world and the fact that Maurice and I wanted the same things out of life just sealed the deal for me. He is a very caring and loving person. A man who puts others before himself, I could genuinely see him as a husband and father to my children.
The day he asked me to be his wife, it was so surreal. He delivered roses to me at my job and prepared a car to take me to the Shangri la hotel. A lady came to take me to a room, In that room was everything I needed to get ready. There was a beautiful dress laid out on the bed with a note which said another car would pick me up to take me to another secret location. I got ready, got in the car, It took me to a venue. When I walked in, there was a grand piano (his brother was playing), rose petals all around the room and Maurice singing as I walked in… then he gave a very sweet speech, got down on one knee and proposed! The beginning of forever with the love of my life was here and grateful was all I felt at that point. God had made my life a testimony and given me beauty for ashes, laughter for my teary nights and a heart of gratitude was all I had.
To be honest, before we met, I vaguely knew of Temi because a friend of mine sent me a video of her singing and said we should collaborate. When I met her in person I actually didn’t know it was her until I heard her voice and when I did, Lord have mercy. Lol. She was so easy to fall in love with. I have never met someone as truthful as her. She is straight to the point lol. I love how blunt she is, I know with her I’m getting the unadulterated truth. When told my friend Odell, he as over the moon! We all went to the same church so he knew her a little. He was really happy for me and he said he always had a feeling we would get together someday.
I remember it like it was yesterday, we were at her mother’s house, we were both on the stairs walking down, I paused for a moment and something within me told me that she would be the one I’ll marry one day. I immediately told her “I’m going to marry you one day”. It was totally out of the blue and she probably thought I was on something. Lol. When I think of her all I see is my personal advisor, mother of our future children, the amazing future we’ll have regardless of our circumstances, the one that will keep us grounded no matter what may come our way. I am happy I made this decision to spend the rest of my life with Temi, a woman who fears the lord, indeed shall be praised. Cheers to forever.
