Life has a way of setting us up with love in the most beautiful ways and with every new love story, we are reminded of the beauty of the phenomenon that is love. Today, we’re taking in all that beauty, thanks to Ama and Cyprian!
Cyprian had gone to make a business pitch at Ama’s office when he laid eyes on her for the first time. Let’s call this moment the first spark! A year went by and fate brought them together again when he stumbled on her Facebook profile. Now, those little seeds have germinated into a beautiful garden of love that will last forever!
The sweethearts have now taken their love down forever lane. After their colourful Ghanaian trad, they exchanged their vows in a beautiful white destination wedding with friends and family present to celebrate with them. It was a beautiful affair as the pair went all out to celebrate their love. Ama was such an exquisite bride through and through and Cyprian came through dapper and suave too!
From the morning prep to the exchange of vows, reception and after-party, #TheAyyrianXperience destination wedding was absolutely one for the books. They also held a welcome party at the destination before the big day and it was nothing short of breathtaking! You certainly want to catch all the thrills yourself.
Enjoy their beautiful wedding photos and love story as shared by Cyprian below.
Their story as shared by Cyprian:
My first meeting with Ama was in 2015 at a business pitch to her company, and boy was I blown away by her. I told her she looked familiar, and she responded with a very curt “I have that face”. That was pretty much all I got from her that day. Fast forward to a year later. She pops up as a friend on Facebook and I add her. Facebook conversations on fashion led to a friendship on Instagram, and as we all know on Instagram it goes down in the DMs.
I discovered Ama’s love for animals and travelling through her Instagram stories and realized that would be my only way in. So for over a year, we went back and forth with a little comment here and a little suggestion there, until I decided to ask her to dinner one time I was in Ghana. She had literally also just got back from a work trip that evening. But if you know Ama then you know yam and pork will get her to do anything.
That evening led to a deeper friendship which allowed me to ask her to my cousin’s wedding two months later as our first official date. To my surprise, she said yes. She came to the wedding met my entire family, we went for sushi (her favourite). Our car broke down in the middle of the road and we spent 48 hours on a “no sleep” challenge. Since that first date, we have become inseparable. Living on two different continents in different time zones but knowing from that day that we were meant to spend together forever.
The sweet blessings of mama…
