We wish you were there, it was one of the most beautiful scenes ever! #BBN3FortheLoveofWeddings put this proposal together and of course the moment was sweetened by @baileysnigeria @BellaNaijaWeddings beauties, let's give you the gist of the proposal; As both @femi_tech and @lizzy.oyinoluwa1 live in Abuja, we set into motion a plan to thrill the now bride-to-be with a romantic and intimate surprise proposal. Lizzy was tricked into flying into Lagos for a "meeting". She arrived at the venue of the meeting and guess what, there was a real meeting set-up! Lizzy discussed business for an hour before her business contact mentioned they should head over to another venue to to continue the discussion and meet other business partners. When she arrived, she got the surprise of a lifetime! As soon as Lizzy entered the doors of the restaurant, a row of vocalists began serenading her with her favourite song – "Why I Love You" by Major. Each musician held a white rose which they handed to her one-by-one. She was wowed for the first few seconds and then overcome with emotions when she saw her love Femi right there, holding a single red rose, a black ring box and more importantly, standing in-front of a flower-adorned sign that said – MARRY ME. When she reached him, he took her hands and got on bended knees. He said – Will You Marry Me? She said YES – of course. Then Femi placed the glittering diamond ring on Lizzy's finger. It was such a beautiful moment and we all applauded! …Then the serenade continued as Femi and Lizzy enjoyed the afterglow of their once-in-a-lifetime moment. Congratulations to the Lizzy and Femi. Lizzy is the first bride to receive an invitation to #BBNWonderland 3. Will you like to join her at #BBNWonderland 3 during the weekend of 27th January 2018?

How We Met
By the Groom-to-be, Femi
Hmm! My love story. It all started in my 200 level in the university, I came back home for the summer break and I stunned on an amazing beautiful damsel in church. She was on low-cut and wearing a very lovely gown, I admired her from afar but couldn’t walk up to her to tell her how I felt because I had no courage.
Then we had a youth program one evening in church and a friend of mine I wanted to ride with offered to drop her off at home. My friend was trying to woo her while I was at the back seat so I concluded that I had lost her but you know there is a saying that what belongs to you will surely be yours.
Seven years past and I was still admiring her from afar because I had no mettle to approach her. In the eight-year, I saw her in church during health week, I asked a friend of mine how well he knew her. He said I do know her as a good and humble person. I saw her that day and said hello from afar and she replied hi.
Immediately, I called a friend of mine to ask if she knew her, she replied she didn’t but offered to ask her friend who knew her. She later called back that evening to inform that her friend said it’s no green light for me.
Then I searched for her on Instagram, followed her, liked all her pictures and then slid into her DM, but didn’t get a reply until five days later. When I saw her message I was enrapt and replied to her by asking for her digit. She gave me a number that can’t be called but could chat via WhatsApp. We got talking on WhatsApp but couldn’t speak on phone until two weeks after.
Then, she gave me her call through digit when she was comfortable with me. I asked her out a month-plus after and the response was very intense. Since then it has been a wonderful journey with this amazing beautiful damsel. I have never regretted the day I asked her out because she has been a blessing to me. I am ready to spend the rest of my life with Elizabeth.
