GLAYS AND SOJI: ANOTHER CHANCE


How They Met (From the Bride): Soji and I actually met for the first time in Los Angeles, 8 years ago, at our church’s annual youth convention. We hadn’t met before that because I attended the Queens branch of the church, and he the Bronx.   THE TRADITIONAL WEDDING I vividly remember that I was catching up with some friends from the Atlanta branch near the pool area, when he and his friends started throwing around a football near where we were standing. The boys that he was playing with were mindful about making sure the ball stayed out of […]

THE JEWISH WEDDING OF ONYI & FRANK


Today’s wedding feature is special in its own right. It is the first Jewish wedding between a Nigerian couple we have seen. There are all the elements: The floral chuppah, the covering and the Yarmulke especially worn by the groom on top of his head.

OLAWANDE & OLANREWAJU: AN INSTAGRAM LOVE STORY


Olanrewaju and I met on Instagram three years ago. He had been sending me direct messages on Instagram which I constantly ignored, for three years.

Then in 2015 his perseverance made me reply his message, that was how the connection started. When I finally met him for the first time, I fell in love with him, the way he looked at me was just priceless. Right there I knew I couldn’t trade him for anything else. On my birthday in […]

ANJIE & ANGELO: A TRADITIONALLY TIMELESS MELBOURNE WEDDING


How did you and your partner meet? Believe it or not, we met online in 2011! At the time, online dating wasn’t as common as it is now.
