Wedding Date on Sep 15, 2018

Chukwuma's Recollection The year was 2011, the month was October. I had recently joined Sigma Phi Rho fraternity inc, and was on a trip with my frat brothers to visit a chapter in Massachusetts. I knew there was this Nigerian girl that was part of the chapter via face book ( you know how face book floods your time line with recommended friends once you accept just one friend in an ORG.) So there I was in a dorm apartment in Mass, nursing a glass of cranberry and vodka, doing what I always do when I meet strangers for the first time; people watching and silence. Damola walked in the room just when I got to the bottom of my 2nd glass, and noticed her from the get go. She has this thing where she glides through the room and effortlessly makes friends, working the crowd so to speak, the total opposite of my laconic self. The night moves along and some how we end up talking politics, culture and growing up in Nigerian households. The next day, I ran into her again and she showed me how much of a terrible dancer I was by beating me at a game of dance dance revolution. We kept in contact from then on, via Facebook, text, skype etc and slowly moved from friends to best friends to lovers. we have been there for each other through thick and thin, from stressful final exam nights to major career moves, and I cant imagine taking this next step of marriage with no one else but you, my "coolest girl ever" Damola's Recollection Some of the newest NY member of the fraternity were coming for Aids Benefit 2011 at Umass Dartmouth. I head over to my friends on campus apartment where everyone involved was gathering the night before and I see him sitting quietly in his brown Columbia ski jacket (yup he still has the jacket!). A room full of people and I noticed him immediately, a literal quiet giant. The entire night I’m getting to know everyone, trying to get his attention. Me being the terrible flirt than I am, I failed miserably. Fast forward to the post show party, I finally get his attention. Before I know it, while everyone else was partying we stood just outside talking until close to 3am. Next meeting was for an event at his school, at that point I still wouldn’t admit I liked him, I just kept saying “he was interesting”. He performed a spoken word piece called,” Superman” and despite my not wanting to admit it, I was in love. To this day my Maid of Honor , pokes fun at how unnecessarily loudly I cheered. It wasn’t until later in the evening, that I heard him casually singing that I was realized he was the one! After that, we messaged here and there, then nothing much, until one random day Jan 20, 2012, he skypes me. I hate video calling so what possessed me to pick up that day, hair wrapped in a yellow scarf and all, I do not know. Every day from then on, we were in contact 24/7. He became my best friend, someone I completely trusted, being someone who doesn’t do so easily. He constantly challenged my intellect, was my favorite gym partner and literally filled my heart with music again when the stress of school and work had worn me down. No one has ever made me feel happier, more confident or at peace and the fact that we will soon get to continue as husband and wife is more than I could ever ask for.
