EMMANUEL AND JOY :: MAXWELL CHAPEL FAIRYTALE WEDDING

Her parents house, guess that is how she would have to refer to the place henceforth, because on this day that would change, on this day she would become Emmanuel’s wife, and together they would have their own home. Thursday, 27th July 2017, it seemed to be a date set, until the day was finally here, he could not wait to see her, and neither could she, on this day they would be wed and start off their new chapter. The color of love was their theme color, red and beige; simple and elegant. The mood was jovial, the grooms family voices could be heard from outside, happily singings ready to take their bride, and the smile on Joy face explained it all, she would not have wanted it any other way, she was ready to bid her single life goodbye. The feeling was mutual, as Emmanuel shared the final meal with his groomsmen, he could not wait to see his bride.

Maxwell Adventist Academy Chapel, the decor was lovely, aisle had red petals all over. His eyes were glued to him, as his were to her as they walked down the aisle in the company of each parents, towards each other. They met at the center of the aisle and the girl was handed to her groom, signifying that they were now one. Joined together before God, they exited the church as husband and wife, ear to ear smiles glued on their faces, they could not wait to celebrate together with family and friends at the reception that would take place at the same venue.

Shared dance, shared meal, shared moment, great celebration that came to be because of two individuals, who met and fell in love, and decided that they were better together as a team, a couple than as individuals. Two individuals that wanted to spend the rest of their life together, share moments, the good and the bad time, build their home and start their family. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. I feel honored to have been part of your celebration.

PHELIX AND BELINDA :: TAFARIA ENGAGEMENT

James 1:17, “Every good gift and every perfect gift comes from heaven; it comes down from God, the Creator of the heavenly lights, who does not change or cause darkness by turning.”

I prayed for her, she is a gift to me from God.I saw her first in church. I pursued her for one and half years, she was not for the idea, but i did not give up. I knew what I wanted and went for it, I wanted her, so I engaged closely with her friends , so I would get her attention and get to spend time with her. We have an annual church retreat during the easter period, and we  have a bonding game , where all men and women are required to write their names and drop it in a bowl, one for men and another for the women, and then they would get to pick a name from the bowl of one’s opposite gender. The name one would pick, you had to spend time and treat that individual different. I picked her that helped my case. Eventually, after one and half years, she said yes to be my girlfriend.

I knew she was different, and I treated her as such. I made her a priority and gave her her place in my life, when she needed me, I availed myself. I created time for her, and as I continued to get to know her & after a while we grew in love and inseparable.

On that particular day, she had a clue , but she was not sure. We drove over to Tafariah Castle. The destination was lovely, perfect for the queen that she was, and here I proposed, and she said yes. I cannot express how happy I was to know that soon she will be my wife and I her husband. She is my answered prayer and I will forever be grateful to God for her. I love her longer than forever.

Blossom season has to be one of our favourite times for engagement photos, everything looks so pretty and romantic. But when you’re photographing Kiki and Eric, I think we could have done it anywhere and it would have turned out pretty and romantic (and very dope). These two are just the best, complete gems, inside and out.

Peter & Njoki :: Fun-filled Engagement Shoot

GABU6138
Engagement Story:

I honestly cannot tell the first time or the second time or even third time that I fell in love with Njoki and ever since I met her I knew there is something special about her. We first met at a KKrew Bible study,June of 2013 and fast forward two years later, was our engagement, the night she said Of Course to being my partner in life and spending the rest of our lives together.
For the engagement, I enlisted the help of one of my very good friends, Brent Hanson (He also agreed to be the minister at our wedding) and also got his team from ‘The Journey’ to make the engagement night a success. The game plan was to make the experience meaningful and personal to both of us. The venue of the event was at Rosslyn Academy and theme was a walk love journey.
Allow me to put in to context, we are that cliché couple from the movie that celebrates their month-a-versary and June, 2013 was my chance to plan the date. I managed to throw her off and get her to dress in ‘sporty’ wear as that was the month’s concept. Once the plan was ready and I picked her from work, it was time to get things rolling.
In line with the theme, we went swinging and ‘stumbled’ upon a beautiful picnic setup with juice, snacks and beautiful flower detail. For the life of me, I cannot remember what conversations we were having but I remember seeing one of the photographers (One thing she had requested was to make sure there was a photographer for her engagement) trying to be discrete and I hoping that she wouldn’t see him.Having eaten the snacks, we went to the next part of our engagement story journey.
Next stop was the school chapel, when we walked in on the table were two prayers and a message in a folder with one of our photos (The engagement journey was a goose chase with individually set up picnic spot with a folder that contained a photo from our dating life and a personalized message with me expressing the different reasons why I love Njoki). She read the message; we prayed dedicating our relationship to God and moved to the next station.
Would you believe we took a wrong turn and almost lost our trail??? Anyway, Brent redirected us to the right path and the next station was our picnic setup filled with balloons, (She loves balloons) and we found the folder at that station, read the message and I bet at this point she had an idea of what was happening (To be honest, surprising Njoki is hard so the goal was to make sure that she enjoys her day and has a beautiful story to tell). From now hence, she was giddily hopping through the nature trail trying to find all the picnic spots… seeing her excited and jumpy, warmed and melted my heart on so many levels.
The last set up was a candle lit dinner where we were welcomed by a path lit by candle lanterns, live guitar and percussion playing in the background creating the perfect ambience for us to eat and for me to finally propose. Dinner was served consisting of a blend of our favorite foods. After dessert was served, I managed to define what love is in all the seasons of life and went down on one knee and asked her to marry me and guess what, she said ‘OF COURSE’.
