Eghosa Asoro, a Healthcare Patient Service Coordinator and Eyituoyo Orugboh, a Database Administrator look forward to saying, “I do” in front of their family and friends on June 20, 2015 in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s so fitting that the engagement took place at EyiTuoyo’s 30th birthday as their first date took place at a restaurant on a previous birthday of his.
Tell us about how you met and all about the proposal!
It was Tuoyo’s 30th birthday. I told him 6 months before his birthday that I would plan a birthday party for him; the only thing he had to do was show up. Planning his birthday party was very exciting for me, because I knew this was going to be his first party.
While the party was going on, I had many distractions. I was called to the kitchen, then to the car, and then someone else called me to go over the program. During this time, I heard the MC calling my name on the microphone. As I walked up, I saw Tuoyo standing in the middle of rose petals shaped in a heart with candles surrounding the heart.
He asked me to step into the heart with him.
He asked my sisters and his sisters to come up as well. He thanked me for everything and handed me a box. I remember everyone hailing and asking me to open the box. I opened the box. It was an ipad and on the back was engraved, Eghosa P. Asoro, will you marry me?
I turned around to look at Tuoyo and he was on his knee. I think after that, I spaced out. I was overwhelmed with joy. I could not believe what just happened at that moment. Just when I thought I was going to make his 30th birthday one to remember, he made it about us! I am truly grateful to have this man in my life, I am looking forward to our future. God has a plan! The grace of God is sufficient and He has been there for us and will continually be our rock.
Engagement Shoot Location: Horse Ranch in Covington GA & Downtown Covington
The engagement session...
It was such an enjoyable experience! Tuoyo loves horses so we incorporated that aspect into the shoot. We went to a little historic town that has a laid back feel since we both love hanging out. The shoot was a mix of country and style. Photography by Fotos by Fola.
