We’re very happy to present this colourful wedding on such a beautiful day.
Vanessa and George met at church. They were both in the choir and though it wasn’t exactly love at first sight, the couple grew together in love and faith.
Their beautiful wedding was planned and coordinated by Feyikemi Kukoyi of FTK~Konnect Events in the U.S.
How We Met
Our story is a very interesting one and weird one at the same time. It wasn’t the traditional boy meets girl and boy falls in love with girl. Oh no! That was not our story. It was more like God bringing boy and girl together in the weirdest, most unexpected way. We met six years ago for the first time, while hanging out with a mutual friend but never said anything to each other. Then we somehow ended up in the same church (JHB) years later. Who would have thought that we would even talk to each other, let alone end up together!
Our story reminds us of those “Naija movies” that you watch and you are like “if only this happens in real life”. Well news flash, it sure does! Back to our story, we both were in the choir. Of course if you are reading this, here’s the point where you say “awww” But neither of us felt that way. One random day, George told me that God revealed to him that I was “the One”. As expected, I was like, “He did not tell me that”. Ok, I really didn’t say that but I was thinking it. I said I would pray about it. After that, we really didn’t talk to each other but as much as I wanted to deny it, I knew there was something different and special about the guy. I guess I was just scared that he could actually be the one and my coveted single days would be over.
Months went by and then all of a sudden we became friends and started talking on the phone and then we started hanging out, praying together and just discovering how much we have in common. Before you know it, we became official and are still going strong. The one thing that was shocking to us was how we went from no attraction to falling head over heels in love with each other. I believe that’s what happens when God is at the center of it all. He creates the most unlikely matches, just to fulfill his ultimate plan. He allowed us to grow individually and then in his own perfect time he brought us together so that His name can be glorified and for this we know that our union consists of George and I with God as the center, holding us together.
