Hello all… We would like to introduce you to one of our wonderful couples getting married next month. Destiny brought together two souls from different parts of Africa, Eric Uwonkunda of East Africa (Rwanda) and Sena Ahohe from West Africa( Benin). Eric and Sena were introduced by a common friend, Marc. At the time, Sena attended college in Manchester, NH. She was to graduate in May of 2009. Marc asked Eric to drive from Toronto, Canada to Manchester with him to attend Sena’s graduation because he didn’t want to make the long trip by himself. Prior to making the trip, Eric asked for Sena’s phone number so that he could get to know her a little better and speak with the lovely lady that he would travel such a long distance to see graduate. On April 22, 2009, Sena and Eric began a friendship that consisted of daily phone conversations that lasted for hours all the way until they came to Manchester for her graduation. When they met that weekend, they connected and their relationship blossomed. After college, Sena moved to Maryland to start her career as a Pharmacist. Eric lives in Canada and continues his profession as a Network Engineer. Their relationship has thrived through trips to visit one another and long phone conversations.
Eric proposed to Sena on November 11, 2010, the night before another friend’s wedding. She said YES!!!! They will have a total of 3 wedding ceremonies. Their first ceremony was held in Benin last August. It is customary to have an African ceremony in which the groom visits the Bride’s family home to greet his bride. This ceremony lasted the course of 3 days. Their second ceremony will be held in Toronto where the groom’s family now lives. The last and final ceremony will be the grandest of them all. It will be held in July at the elegant and modern Samuel Riggs Alumni Center located in College Park, MD. There will be African dancers, live bands, lighting, and language interpreters. We are so very excited to assist Sena and Eric plan this grand affair. Thank you Jax Photography for the beautiful display of their Engagement Photo Shoot.
