#AreMo2018 – The Bridal Shower with the Couple

WE ARE GETTING MARRIED!

We, the Voice of Worth family are getting married! Okay, in the real sense of it, our founder, Aremo Oluwatobiloba Olalekan, is getting married to his babe, Miss Fadipe Modupeoluwa. Whoop whoop! 💃💃💃

people have been praying and waiting for this to happen! All we wanted was for him to find someone that will bring him joy and bring glory to God. What a faithful God we have! He brought His will to pass and we are super excited about it!

The proposal was beautifully amazing! Here’s the summarized gist: Dear Miss Modupe went for a photoshoot, supposedly for her birthday, unknown to her, the super smooth Aremo had other plans. She was happily surprised.

She was happily surprised. Next came the pre-wedding photoshoot! Our hearts have been filled with love and joy ever since they released pictures from their pre-wedding shoot. It was a definition of love. It was really fun, playful, dressy, and intimate.

 

The official day to seal the deal, to begin a new journey, to experience a whole new life and to continue in the expression of how Christ loves the church is this Saturday! The long-awaited wedding ceremony will be taking place in the capital of Oyo state, Ibadan, Nigeria.

As is our custom on Voice of Worth, we hold an e-bridal shower for the bride to be. But for the first and only time ever, we had the pleasure of hosting a shower for the newlyweds to be. We’ll be sharing the highlights of the e-bridal shower with you. Learn, love, laugh!

 

E-BRIDAL SHOWER

How did you meet?

Aremo Olalekan: While serving God. We met while planning MINE BALL camp.

We were on the same team; Programs team. And well, for me I was fascinated by the new girl. But her, she says she didn’t like me on first meeting.

How did you know she/he was the one?

Aremo Olalekan: It was not right away o that we knew anything o, at least for me anyway.

We became friends, twinnies, and prayer partners and well eventually the eyes of my understanding was enlightened!

Modupe: Yeah, and God made it pretty clear along the way

Aremo Olalekan: I prayed of course and confirmations followed.

At what stage in your relationship did parental/family involvement come in?

Aremo Olalekan: When it was introduction time.

Are you either more similar or very different? How do you handle that and use it to your advantage in the relationship?

Aremo Olalekan: More similar than different. We have what makes us different and it balances our together.

One of the things that I admired (and still admire) about her is her ability to see things in ways I didn’t. Let’s just say our differences makes the mix a beautiful one and our similarities also makes it exciting!

Modupe: We have a lot of things in common and share interests in similar things, but I think when it comes to opinions we see things differently which I believe makes us compatible. The more you can see from the other persons perspective, the more alike you become.

Why did you start the relationship series on your social media pages (Aremo Olalekan)? Did you know about it (Modupe)?

Aremo Olalekan: Basically to share and give insight into how a relationship should be.

We all need knowledge in that area. Many times we think we know so much but turns out we just may not.

With all the pre-wedding pictures and captions and status flooding of hashtags… How do you feel getting married in a few weeks? Especially wifey. The Mrs. Title?

Modupe: Well, its exciting and definitely a lot to look forward to.

We know you both are celebs and we love you so! If this isn’t too personal, what will you say is the purpose of your marriage?

Aremo Olalekan: Be a reflection of what a Christ-centered home looks like.

Any advice for single people?

Modupe: Let God lead you, He made you and knows what’s best for you.

How did you handle physical boundaries when you get to met, hung out?

Modupe: Staying true to a commitment to honour God helps. In the long run, it’s about pleasing the Father.

What was it like getting parental consent/approval? Any challenges? All smooth?

Modupe: I guess my mom just trusts me to make a right choice and was supportive all the way. Also, we spent time praying about having everyone in unity with our decisions. Few challenges here and there but when God is in the picture, you are sure to have Kings dance to your tune, even parents.

Aremo Olalekan: Wasn’t all smooth. From my end anyway. But then, I decided what I wanted and stuck with it became smooth. I had my convictions and I stuck with them. Eventually everyone came around.

A lot of people give “advice” or “counsel” that in marriage, not everything should be disclosed. You should keep some things as (small) harmless secrets. Do you believe in this school of thought?

Aremo Olalekan: Hmm. I believe in complete openness. What’s ‘harmless’ secret sef?

Modupe: Harmless secrets are unnecessary burdens. I’m all of sharing it all.

Before now, and at a point in everyone’s life, we have a picture of our ideal husband/wife. If you would compare your ideal spouse and the spouse to be God has given you, is there any match? And what difference does it makes to you now?

Aremo, what makes her different from other women?

Aremo Olalekan: Well, cos she is mine. God’s own sure outranks what I drew up in my head. I’ll go with God’s choice any day.

Modupe: What determines ideal? I think what’s ideal is simply what God wants. God’s perfect will is what makes it ideal. So no, He didn’t look like what I wanted, but having him made me realized what I wanted would have been disastrous for me.

Did you both study the word and pray together? How’d it feel? Was it weird?

Aremo Olalekan: Of course!!! Exciting. Thrilling. Revealing.

Modupe: We were prayer partners as friends, so nothing weird about it! It’s always a time to look forward to.

There you have it! Trust you learnt a thing or two. The wedding is taking place this Saturday, December 8th, 2018 in the city of Ibadan, Oyo State. For more information kindly contact Oyindamola on 07068422027.

We wish the couple a truly blessed union in Christ.

See you there!
