How their love started

Jessica has always envisioned and loved weddings whereas Joshua always perceived weddings to be expensive affairs. The two met at a movie shop while Jessica was out ranting about how she had not yet landed an internship opportunity yet she was running out of time. Joshua handed her his card and promised to help which he did. With time, Joshua noticed her unique qualities and this drew her closer to him. It, in turn, led to a friendship and later a relationship.

Wedding preparations and the ceremony

Their wedding budget was Kshs750,000 and for her dress, the bride settled for a tailor-made white dress. The groom and his men wore white khaki pants and top with the signature Nigerian hat known as Aso Oke.
