For Emmanuel And Oviri, Love Travelled Borders, Love Found Home

Some find love within their immediate love, some have to cross borders and mountains to get to theirs, either way, love is a beautiful thing to have, and the reward of obtaining it worths the endeavor. One of love’s champion, Emmanuel sought and found his in Nigeria, in the beautiful heart of Oviri. While on a vacation to Dubai, Emmanuel popped the question that began their journey to forever. Thoughtful Emmanuel planned the day by taking her for a spa session, to camel riding, then starlit dinner and finally took her to their hotel room where he asked her to marry him. When asked about how they met, the groom-to-be revealed that: “We met two years ago during a business seminar organized by our church. In the beginning, the relationship was a bit challenging since the two cultures, although similar, can be quite different. However, we understood that the difference made us stronger as it allowed us to complement one another”. Revealing how they met, he said that: “I booked a night in a resort in the Liwa desert which is located 3 hours away from Dubai hence why Oviri was peacefully sleeping. Once we arrived, we had a spa reservation to take out the stress of the year. This was an incredible experience as we had the view of the desert during our session”. Right after the massage, we went on a camel trek to watch the sunset from the tallest desert dunes in the world. Later that night, I had asked for a romantic private dinner to be set up. The dinner was set up under the stars, in the middle of the desert with candles and fire. I surprised my lady with her dress as I had to make sure she looked on point for Instagram pictures. While having dinner, I asked the hotel to decorate the room for us with rose petals and candles as we always wanted our proposal to be an intimate moment. Once in the villa, I proposed to Oviri by telling her what she means to me and that ever since I chose her I never regretted it. Photo Credit: Getty
