One evening on my way home I met this young lady by the road side. I asked her to join me so I drop her off but she refused saying she’d rather wait for a taxi. So I decided to wait for a while with her… after a period we realized that no car was coming so I insisted she join again. She reluctantly agreed to join. While in the car, I asked for her name and upon realizing we literally shared the same name, we were both shocked. I actually had jokingly to take my ID out to prove it, haha. We ended up having a long conversation during which we realized we shared a lot of interests, from going to the same Law school to being in the banking sector. I then dropped her off and she actually asked for my number (with the excuse that she’d check on me to see If I got home safely…). We proceeded to talk much more for the next couple of days after the encounter and on the third day…I told her…”you are the woman I’m gonna marry”. She obviously laughed it off and thought it weird. But here we are, three years after that fateful night… Photography @sorce_photography Video by @blaqeyeconceptgh Make up @phab_hairnmakeup ;: ; #idoghana #bellanaijaweddings #loveweddingsng #ghanawedding #weddings #idoghana #kente #weddingguest #loveweddingsng #ghanawedding #weddings #weddingguest #naijaasoebi #tradlookbook #weloveghanaweddings #ngweddings #ghweddings #ghanaianweddings #tradweddings #nigerianweddingpictures #naijaasoebi #bridesmaids #ankarastyles #Loveafricanweddings #asoebibella #weddingsinghana #yearofreturn19

The beautiful Ghanaian traditional wedding had all the important details to make a spectacular and memorable day.

Decor team got it right and so did the designers of the bride’s gown, bridesmaid outfit, groom’s look and the powerful prayer session that took place during the introduction ceremony.
