They were Introduced by her Mom! Crystal & Kevin’s Pre-wedding Shoot + Love Story



Their hashtag #KevinSeesCrystalClear says it all and we do agree that Kevin does see Crystal clear.

The way they met is super cute too. Crystal’s mum was the middle man and link between the two. After a small conversation with her mum at work about Crystal, Kevin got her number, they went on a date and now they are walking down the aisle soon.

How We Met
By the groom-to-be, Kevin

Crystal’s mom and I worked together at the local pharmacy. One Tuesday in 2016, there was a power outage which allowed for the pharmacy and clinic associates to gather together for a small talk. Crystal’s mom and the technician were talking when I heard the name Crystal and inquired about who that was.

This was the pivotal moment that would begin to change the course of my destiny. Crystal’s mom proceeded to show pictures of Crystal to me while elaborating on Crystal’s well-roundedness as a God fearing, family oriented, ambitious, and domesticated young lady. With every description, my eyes got larger as I hung on to every word. Crystal’s mom suggested I add her on Instagram. But I was very interested in hearing more about Crystal, but not ready to add her on Instagram. Crystal’s mom then asked me for a picture and sent it to Crystal.

The first picture was with sunglasses so her mum asked for another picture without sunglasses, so her daughter could get a proper depiction of the gentleman. Within 30 minutes, I got a text from Crystal’s mom with Crystal’s number which showed that Crystal liked what she had seen and heard about me.  The next day Crystal’s mom travelled to Africa and the first date took place a week later and now the rest is history.

    Badass mom. No messing about- she sees what she likes, she gets in there and makes it happen for her daughter, simples.
