Bukky and Afolabi’s first date was when he took her to the prom. She thought they’d part ways afterward, but he’s wanted to spend every minute with her ever since. We celebrate their love!
Why I Love You So Much
“Every memory we created together, every inside joke, every hug and every kiss just added up and every day I realized more and more how much I loved him and wanted to be with him,” bride-to-be Bukky tells us.
“My mommy loves him,” boasts Bukky. “She truly considers him her son. One year my siblings and I bought her a bracelet with all of our birthstones in it and she made us take it back and add his birthstone before she would accept it. My daddy loved him as well. I only wish they could have spent more time together before my daddy passed.”
“The sweetest thing he’s ever done for me was make me a love CD mixtape,” Bukky shares. “This was back before iTunes and other music downloads became popular. There were 12 songs on it and I listened to it every day until it became scratched. The first song on the CD actually became our song.”
“If its football season, then its all about football,” Bukky tell us. “The thing I love about our relationship is that we can be doing absolutely nothing together and still be content. Being with each together is all we need sometimes.”
“Because his brother and my sister were friends first I had already met some of his family before I met him,” says Bukyky. “I was really nervous about meeting his dad though. But he turned out to be one of the kindest and funniest people I know. I can’t imagine my life without his dad.”
“I don’t really know how to describe my ring,” say Bukyky. “It’s just perfect. It’s like a princess quad with little diamonds around the center and three layers on the side. We shopped around together and I remember loving the ring but being the frugal (he calls me cheap) person that I am, I felt that it cost too much. I guess I was wrong. (Laughs.)”
“I thought I would be a bridezilla because I can be strong willed at times,” says Bukky. “But it is a little intimidating planning a wedding because you want your friends and family to have a great time. That’s why I am very grateful for my wedding planner Mideevents.”
