Our Story

Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite ❤️

Our love story dates back to April 2014.
A now popular social media app, Snapchat, was making its waves around campus. Anikeh decided to join the app and to her surprise her soulmate would soon find her. Unknowingly to her, Linford was already following her on Instagram, which is another popular social media site. When he discovered she had a Snapchat he took this opportunity to follow and message her. Oh yes, you thought as much, it went down in the dm’s lol.
We messaged each other on Snapchat for some days but unfortunately our communication started to dwindle down and eventually it just stopped. Anikeh was preparing for her finals as it was her last semester before graduation so as you can guess this took up all her time and focus. 
After Anikeh graduated from college she came back home. The two would reconnect again three months later. We saw each other at a club and made plans to see each other again for dinner. That night we finally exchanged numbers which made things progress smoothly. Linford remembered from prior conversations that Anikeh loves seafood so he made it a point to take her to one of the best seafood restaurants in Maryland as their first date. From the moment we locked eyes during dinner it was inevitable that there was an undeniable connection between us. It was like we never missed a beat. The conversation was flowing so naturally that we didn’t even notice the restaurant was preparing to close and we were the last ones in there. We both knew at that moment that we had something amazing together and we continued to pursue it. Here we are 6 years later and we couldn’t be any happier! To God be the Glory. We are so excited for our journey in life as husband and wife.
