Wedding: Our Wedding Story, The Vals

Mr and Mrs Val first exchanged their vowels at Cross of Life Lutheran Church On December 21st, 2013.  Followed by their  reception which took place in the beautiful luxurious Marriot Hotel in Buckhead, Atlanta Georgia.  Guest came from all over the world  to celebrate their love. Bishop Bvumbwe and his wife  came all the way from Malawi to give their blessings to their daughter and son inlaw. Some described the Vals wedding as “Wedding of the decade..” others were left speechless at how beautiful and glamorous the wedding was. All of Mrs Val  friends agreed that “#Shedidthat!”

Their Story

“We met on an April night in 2003, at a night club called “Vegas Nights”. At the time, we were strangers to each other, but the connection between us was so deep and so strong that it felt like we had met each other before. It did not take long for us to realize we were each other’s soul mates. Heard of love at first sight? That was an unmistakable living example.”


The Proposal

It was a rainy saturday afternoon in atlanta, June 5th 2010 to be exact, and James came home with a dress and matching pair of shoes for me to wear later that evening. The intention was to take me out to dinner. Unfortunately, it rained so hard that we ended up staying in. A few hours later, James shocked me when he got on one knee and asked me to be his Forever.
