How We Met
By the bride, Laide
Emma and I met at a friend’s wedding on Valentine’s day. I had just left a bad relationship and I had zeroed my mind on trying to get into a new one. I was dancing close to the table where he was and he approached me and asked for my number. I was reluctant because I had given up on guys but a mutual friend of ours who was on the table assured me he was a very decent person. So, I decided to give him my number. He called some days later and I had totally forgotten I gave him my number.
We started talking and I was initially not interested. He asked me out on a date and I found out he had never dated anyone which surprised me. Some months later, on the 10th of April, he asked me to be his girlfriend. I remember mentioning to him that he would be the last guy I would date. Even though the nature of his job requires him to travel within and out of the county a lot, I grew to love him even more, each passing day and we just ensured communication was strong.
For our pre-wedding shoot, we wanted to portray our love story. After we met and started dating; we were in a partial distant relationship due to Emma’s job but that didn’t stop our love from going stronger, hence the theme for the pre-wedding. Oh, I am the first lady he ever dated and now the first and only lady he is going to get married to.
