Oh, it has been quite a long minute there, hasn’t it? All we can say is that our Lord God has been faithful, so faithful…simply glory be to His holy name. Hopefully, through the grace of our Lord we will be able to share with you, the amazing love stories God has enabled us to tell through these amazing weddings.
Today we share with you another beautiful love story of two very sweet people that happened our way. We had a thorough blast documenting this love story a few weeks ago & are absolutely humbled that Tito & Janet welcomed us into their lives especially on one of the most special days of their lives.
When I asked them how their love story came to be 🙂
HOW I MET JONATHAN (Janet’s Version)
I remember that Sunday evening (22nd June, 2011) around 6pm when I got out of the house to get some stuff from the shop (kiosk). I did not know that I was about to meet my best friend whom I would spend the rest of my life with. When I first saw Tito (I thought he was really handsome) he was talking to my neighbour who happened to be his friend from high school. I said hello to them and my neighbour introduced me to him. He offered to walk me to our gate, we said goodbye and I gave him a lingering glance, which I hoped conveyed how smitten I already was. Since that day he would frequent our neighbourhood a lot and we would meet and talk about a lot of things. He was definitely my type. Eventually he asked me out, although I kept on giving excuses, deep inside me I knew I wanted to give it a try. So after a few weeks of soul searching (With Tito never giving up on me) I accepted his relationship request 🙂
He proposed to me on the 30th November, 2013 at Enashipai Resort. And the rest -as they say -is history……….
HOW I MET JANET! (Tito’s Version)
I was visiting a friend (Big Steve) in south B and he introduced me to Janet or (his neighbour as he mentioned) she was going to the shop and I remember she bought some carrots, yoghurt & lemons :). I talked to her and I was hooked, she was honest and well mannered. The more I got to know her the more I fell in love with her. She is my best friend, my lover, my wife, hopefully, someday, the mother of our children(if God blesses us).For all the single guys out there, my two cents is —-> find a friend in your spouse, and you will live happily there after :).
Cheers to the awesome crew who were part of this beautiful love story……

Here are my favourites from their white wedding…
Loved Janet’s Indian themed wedding gown!!! talk of thinking outside the box, scratch that…there was no box in the 1st place 🙂
Check out her comfy golden sandals much…it was Indian all the way
We discovered an African bust sculpture somewhere in the house and it acted as the perfect prop for Janet’s jewellery
Gathoni on the other hand was capturing Tito & the guys get their prep on
Loved this ‘His & Hers’ cup that you can flip it and use it any side up 🙂 definitely getting one for ourselves
Rado awesomeness 🙂
As the guys encourage Tito as he goes over his vows
Socks & love messages do make the proverbial perfect mix 🙂
And this is what was served for breakfast 🙂
Prep, prep, prep
Notice the teal-coloured ties & sofa cushions 🙂 coincidence much huh?
The gentlemen clean up good huh? GQ double-taps this!
Meanwhile at Janet’s things were getting puppied up 🙂 ***I love inventing new words 🙂
The girls were getting dolled up!!!!
Those nails definitely earned their spot on the blog 🙂
Before & after magic 🙂
We decided to do some portraits of the girls around the gorgeous home
A portrait of Sharon
The two lovely sisters
Shiro, Ushi & Sharon
Janet is helped to get into her lovely gown
Lilian of Lettante Creations touches up our lovely bride
Janet’s bunny fluffy-slippers were too cute
So beautiful this image is, brings tears to my eyes 🙂
Time to go ladies…
Well, it wouldn’t hurt to have matching marks for your bridal convoy
When we got to Ridgeways Park Hotel it looked so lovely. A wonderful job had been done there
Time for the procession, everyone marched in, dancing away
Tito flashes a nervous smile 🙂 no worries bro…she looks great!
That little fella’s style was on POINT!!! definitely some of us need to drop by for some fashion tips 🙂
Finally, Janet walks down the grassy isle with both of her parents
Tito with me peeking over his shoulder trying to look invisible 🙂
Tumtum band leads us in worship
Janet goes through her vows, kudos for pulling through without bursting out in heaving sobs, like some of us 🙂
Goodbye y’all single ladies…am off the market for good!
Rev. Simon smiles with approval as Tito puts a ring on it! Eternal sign of commitment
It was such a beautiful moment as the pastors & congregation dedicated Tito & Janet to God
And when Rev. Simon asked the love birds to kiss in front of their parents 🙂
Finally, they gathered courage & kissed…I love the way the best couple were blushing on their behalf 🙂
Legally married my friend! Now nothing but death can separate you
And the certificate was tucked safely in by Janet…right next to Tito’s heart
Loved the designs that the unity sand made…will definitely look good on their home TV stand 🙂
Just thought that he looked really cool with that beard
And the newest couple in town is….
Lots of love all over
This is how we roll!!!!
These cocktails were the best I ever drank!
Fashion statements were made all over, loud & clear!
Some familiar faces were in attendance too
After this we headed to The Bedelle for the portrait session. Def one of Nairobi’s most beautiful locations
Everything about this house is gorgeous, it is located in the heart of Runda
Sharon on that high fashion tip
Shiro brings it!
Thanks Ali of Alko for the idea of getting this shot
The outdoor is equally gorgeous too. We just asked the guys to go crazy, crazy is good you see 🙂
Tito entertaining the girls
Caught this wonderful image of Janet as she was just chilling just before we left
After this it was time to head back to Ridgeways Park Hotel for the reception
We got there just as the party was starting
We took some pics with both sets of parents
Oh maeeen, didn’t I love this royal thrones…fit for a king & his queen!
There was enough meat to keep us carnivores happy & well fed 🙂
And I spotted some familiar faces in the crowd, Ivy & Malonza
Oh & yes I lovvvveeeeddddd the cake…Cake Art killed it on this one yet again
Well, I made good use of all them iPads that were floating around taking pics
There you go my Mr.Bossman 🙂
I had no idea that cake can be this funny 🙂
Or this romantic either 🙂
This was one photo-op we were not about to miss
And they presented a cake to Janet’s bro, Finance CS Henry Rotich & his lovely wife
It’s all in the eyes folks, all in the eyes 🙂
And after all was said & done this is what was left of the yummy cake 🙂
And then they had their 1st dance in the reception that was O so beautiful
And then they got a chance to walk around and personally thank all their guests
Lots of happy beautiful people all over
And a few tears were shed too…especially when Janet had to bid farewell to her family
And with this lovely shot, we left the reception to the last look session at The Bedelle
Oh maeeen, locations do not come more amazing than this!
Tito whispers sweet nothings into Janet’s ear 🙂
Some awesome silhouette loveliness
Whose the boss now? huh?
This reflection made me week in the knees
Oh black & white will remain timeless for all eternities
Do bird’s eye-views come any better?
Suweet!!!!! this was THE money shot!
I have a sweet little spot for mirrors, I hope you now know why 🙂
And after we killed it with this shot, it was time to call it a night, but not before we took a pic of both us & the creative team behind Alko Films
Top L-R: Mike, Mercy, Ali, Janet & Tito, Gathoni, Ben & Gilbert. Bottom L-R: James & Ted
Though before you bounce make sure you check out the wonderful trailer done by Alko Films, they absolutely killed it on this one
Hope you loved this beautiful story, we surely did.
Loads of Love & God’s abundant blessings,
