On October 26, 2014, we had an opportunity to shoot a wedding for our friends. I say our because this is a couple that my wife and I are friends with.

Imagine our delight when we saw photos of what seemed to be an engagement shoot. A little speculation about what was going on and we finally got our confirmation. We had dinner with Elastus and his fiancee, Lisa. They were an interesting couple to sit and chat with. They are both lecturers at the University of Zambia and devoted researchers. You can clearly see they have so much in common and are in love.

Let me tell you about the hidden gem for their wedding venue. It was the first time I heard of this place and wondered why I had not heard about this place before. It is Ananda Wedding and Conference Venue. It is a tasteful wedding venue with a very intimate looking chapel. The furniture is classy and elegant (if I can put those two words together). Because the venue is so far out of town, they provide snacks before the reception. All in all, this is a very ideal wedding venue and I do believe it would be every couple's ideal location.
In keeping with his passion for singing, he did an awesome rendition of John Legend's "All of Me". He sang his heart out for his bride. He broke a sweat and drove his wife to tears, happy tears I must say. He had told us he was a sucker for old music, we believed him on this day as they danced to an old song (new singer) that blended well with the beginning of a new life. "At last... du du du..."
It was a wonderful evening filled with love, laughter, happy tears and we do wish the Awesome's a happy life ahead.
