Lekan and Kehinde Share Their Love Story and Engagement Photos

Posted in: , ,

RML in collaboration with FotosbyFola brings you the engagement photos and love story of Lekan and Kehinde in Atlanta. They met during a school program at their college and moved to Facebook before their relationship led to love.

RML wishes the couple the very best as they prepare for their marriage later this year. Lekan shares how they met;

Kehinde and I met at Emory when we were both in the MPH program at the Rollins School of Public Health. We met at an annual fall school program, the 2010 edition was termed “The Fall Fling”. Before “fall fling”, we had met each other once in passing at some friend’s event, we didn’t get to talk but I kept asking my friend about the girl that had the greatest smile I had ever seen. At “fall fling”, we danced with each other randomly – so it seemed, and she said her feet hurt because she had been dancing for a while, so we decided to sit for a bit. I asked her if she was on Facebook and we both laughed. Now, we both agree that that was lame, but it worked. I added her on Facebook and we started talking and exchanged numbers in the process. I guess we owe a lot to social media.
