Meet McEva and Sophie, a classy yet simple and mature couple we’ve all come to love and adore! The two love birds met in traffic, while the groom was giving alms to the less privileged, the bride-to-be noticed him but went her way, unknowingly to both of them, they were heading to the same place and of course she caught his eyes, and the rest they say is history!
Events By Eki is managing their wedding, which will be taking place this weekend and we’re excited for them and can’t wait to see the photos!
But before then, see all the beautiful portraits on the couple below, courtesy of Events By Eki.

How We Met
While i was stuck in traffic on my way to silverbird TV in Abuja, I saw a guy giving some money to a little boy, when the others noticed, about 12/15 of them gathered around him to help them as well, and I thought to myself “this cute guy just got himself into trouble”. He gave them some money and they fled.
Somehow, our eyes met and I kept smiling, the traffic light turned green and I drove off to my destination. Turns out he was also heading to Silverbird to meet up with a friend. When I got down from my car, i realised he was parked just next to me unknowingly. He then approached me and said Hi and Introduced himself politely as McEva Temofe, I laughed and asked him if he was from Zimbabwe or something.
I didn’t think the name sounded Nigerian, but he said he was a Nigerian from Delta state. I was impressed meeting a cute Deltan because I’m also from Delta State and was just hearing the name for the 1st time. So I poked further and asked if he was one of those ‘Abj guys’ that change their names and he confirmed it was his real name.
That was how we continued our conversation, exchanged numbers and went on to become best friends ‘solid padis’. And the rest they say is history. It’s funny we met here in Abuja and my village is just 2 villages away to his in Delta State. I’m so blessed to have him and I’ll be saying “I Do” this Saturday
