Charity Lawson and Dontun Olubeko Talk Wedding Planning
Charity Lawson and Dotun Olubeko sat down with Bachelor Nation to share some of their plan for the future, including wedding planning. Though they do not have any date picked out or have any solidified details, they did admit they don’t plan on having a very long engagement and are eager to get married soon.
The couple also shared that they hope to plan two marriage celebrations, one here in the U.S. where Charity Lawson is from, and one in Nigeria where Dontun Olubko is from.
Following the finale, Charity Lawson took to Instagram to share a sweet message for her fiancé.
“Within all my senses, I knew. How grateful am I to discover a love that cannot be replicated,” she began before adding, “This was in no way an easy journey. But through it all – grace. You have shown me, in the most healthy way, how to receive and love fully again. I cannot wait to take on this life with you.”
Lawson concluded with, “Here’s to living out our very own real life fairytale!!! I love you 💍❤️🌹.”
Dontun Olubeko Gets Down On One Knee
During the “Bachelorette” finale, viewers watched as Olubeko opened up about his love to Lawson at the final podium, not knowing if he was the one she would choose in the end.
“Charity, there is so much we experienced from our first kiss at the mansion all the way to conquering our fears 200 feet in the air, running through New Orleans, and most importantly, falling in love,” Olubeko told Lawson. “You have been able to make me feel so incredibly special. You’ve made me feel adored and validated and wanted.”
He continued, “And to receive that from a woman of your caliber, I don’t think you’ll ever understand what that means to me, but I’m certain that I want to spend the rest of my life showing you. 100 percent. I want you to know that I’m fully committed to you as you stand here in front of me. I wouldn’t change a thing about you.”
It was then Lawson’s turn to speak. “I’ve always said that being here and being on this journey has taught me that one conversation can change everything,” she began before adding, “When I think of that moment and when I think of you, it takes me back to Oceanside when we shared that incredibly special moment that changed my life, truly, forever. When I looked into your eyes in that moment, I saw a man that respected me, that valued me, that adored me, and a man that I could love forever.”
Lawson continued, “You have made me feel alive, you’ve made me believe in love again. You’ve made me feel so valued and so seen.” And that is when the “Bachelorette” told Olubeko he was the one for her. “So, Dotun, when I stand here in this moment, I want a forever future with you. I see you as my husband, I see you as my future. I see it so clear. I don’t have any doubts. I don’t question it. I love you so much,” she concluded.
