How We Met

Ours is a simple story that began almost 8 years ago. I attended a company function at a restaurant and Kharey happened to be one of the hostesses welcoming us. I was immediately captivated by her stunning beauty and that night marked the beginning of a long chase that lasted months. I did not get a chance to speak to her that night, but got her name from one of her colleagues who was working at the same function. 

For a number of months thereafter, the restaurant became my favorite hangout spot, as I tried to track Kharey down on nights/days she would be on duty as a hostess. I finally caught up with her one Sunday afternoon, and gave her my card, but that call from her never came.  After many months of hanging out at the restaurant (always convincing my friends it was the best spot for rum & coke!), and an intercession by my friend, (who finally persuaded her to give me her number), I got that all-important first date!

I may have been too elated or too wasted on that first date, but for whatever reason, I completely forgot where I parked my car when time came to drop her home. That became one of many fun and insanely crazy memories we have created over the years as we have grown to know each other.

Finally, we got our dream wedding, I would not have had it any other way and the best thing was that I was saying I do to a woman I was absolutely bonkers for. The rest, as the romance novels profess, is our happy ever after.

Cheers!

Give a girl the right pair of heels, and she will conquer the world. Kharey in this context, conquered Daniel’s world πŸ™‚

Every bride needs to proudly wear this badge, for those hopefuls who come with the silly notion that she will be one of those runaways πŸ™‚

β€œWhen you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!”

The bathroom shot, that set the standard for all the bathroom shots. The rest are just trying hard to catch up πŸ™‚

Bridal robes are too mainstream, I love a bride who is not afraid of pushing the creative envelope. The white towels stole the day!

Daniel, dapper as ever was also getting suited up across town.

Easy now to see why Daniel kept coming back to that Restaurant that Kharey worked in πŸ™‚

Koby was playing Picasso on Kharey’s lips. Truly, the work of a fine artist. I guess that’s why the name Make Up Artist πŸ™‚

Kharey effortlessly ‘Killing them softly‘ with this gown πŸ™‚

Kharey and her golden girls πŸ™‚

One final shot of Kharey leaving home as a bachelorette

God afforded us a bright sunny afternoon at the Fuchsia Gardens in Limuru, a very picturesque location to have your nuptials.

Daniel and his ‘man of honour’ strut in, beaming from ear to ear

Once the music changed and Daniel spotted his bride, it was a battle of catching the tear right before it left the duct πŸ™‚

Such a precious moment when Kharey’s parents finally got her to the head of the aisle, and reality hit that she was not their little girl anymore

Beautiful sniffles everywhere…the camera crew was not spared either πŸ™‚

Weddings to me are all about moments like this. A precious private moment captured and frozen forever.

To those who do not believe in fairytales coming true, this right here is proof enough to believe

Mood…all day e’er day

God gave Kharey the spotlight she deserved. All through the ceremony the beautiful sun rays lit up our beautiful bride, what a wonderful testament this is!

Kharey’s folks out there tearing up at the vows they were making to each other. Definitely, they knew the importance of those few spoken words

Happiest bunch o’ people south of the Sahara & North of Limpompo!

Definitely, one of the most important signatures one will ever make in their lifetime

Finally, they were pronounced as husband & wife. What God has put together, let no man, woman or thing put asunder! (And we all say… Amen!!!)

Get a band of buddies who will cheer you on (Remember Kipchoge & his pacesetters?) yeah something like that πŸ™‚

If you’re not this excited at your wedding, my friend, just continue dating πŸ™‚

Mock-tails in Mason jars make my heart wanna do the hula! (Hawaiian dance)

If you need the definition of mean-mugging, then look no further

Happy Wife, Happy Life. May life always keep you this bubbly, Kharey

Chivalry died a while back folks, but it resurrected when it met Daniel πŸ™‚

African sunsets like this, are the stuff of photographers’ day dreams.

We had to take this photo just in case ‘Vogue’ needed an Africanised cover for the Feb 2016 edition πŸ™‚

Remember pace-setters? Cheering you on as you bag the girl of your dreams!

When heaven conspires to bring two beautiful people together, all you ought to say is ‘Halleluja’!

Just in case your careers bore you, Daniel & Kharey, always know you have in future in front of the camera lens πŸ™‚

Daniel’s hawk eyed S.W.A.T team, protecting his dashing queen

The golden girl with her golden girls (See what I did there?) πŸ™‚

Infinite Planners did a spectacular job as always, decking up the reception for a small, intimate set up

You ain’t going nowhere, my brother Daniel, that cake was a set up πŸ™‚

Well, it’s no set up if you’re really crazy about the girl, right?

Kevin of Enzi weddings getting that cake detail shot just right. Couldn’t miss that photo-op!

1st meal Kharey prepared for her hubby. Can still taste those cup-cakes. ‘Scrumptious’ doesn’t do them enough justice.

A toast to more happy years together. To life, light & endless love!

Perfect 1st dance, looked like it came straight out of Hollywood movie scene….

When the music ended, but she wants to keep on dancing πŸ™‚

Want to leave you with some last look images we took of this amazing couple

How breath-taking are these two? Definitely two peas in a pod

Daniel & Kharey, your love for each other is beautiful, perfect, raw & real. I pray that through the years, God will deepen your love and mold you both to be images of Him. To more light, bountiful life and endless love!!!!

HAPPY 5TH ANNIVERSARY
