Ha! Knew this day was coming for so long. I used to tell you at every NSBE meeting opportunity I would get. And you'd coyly smile saying, "No, there's nothing going on. We're just friends". Sure, sure...I'll play the gullible part :P I'm so happy though! It feels so right, I'm sure all your other friends and family attending will agree too. I can't wait. Congrats, love <3<3

Kate is my younger sister. She is more of my cheer leader. She has got my back since day one and my best friend. We share happy and the sad moments together. She knows the inside and ot of my and I'm am truly "honored" to have her as my Maid of Honor in my wedding.
I have known Whitney for about 7 years. She is my community college mate who became more like a sister. As a sister, i thought it would be great for her to be a part of this memory.
Ruby Boateng and I met on our way to our first Genetics class at the U of M as transfer students both from the EastCoast. Rudy had transferred from a community college in NY while i transferred from NJ. We were both late when we met and i quickly thought to myself, "hmm, birds of the same feather, they say flock together". After a while of knowing Ruby, I knew we were definately opposites. Ruby is outspoken and I am quite and reserved and so people wondered how we got along, even parents. I remember Ruby's father who is also like a father to me saying to be that "you are a good person if you can be friends with Ruby". LOL. We both are education focused and have bigger dreams. I always say to myself, even though we may be different in someways, based on physics we definately know that "opposite charges attract while like charges repel".
Thanks Ruby for being the great sister you are and being a part of my big day!
Vera is the younger sister of Ruby who is like a younger sister. Vera, her sister's and brother Oheneba have been a great support since my move to Mn. Whenever I call on them, they are always by me and with me through thick or thin. They have been my motivation, inspiration and advisors. I cannot thank God enough for bringing them into my life. Thank you lil sis for being part of my big day.
Soon to be Dr. Maj is a community college mate and organic chemistry/ physics study buddy. I remember the times we used to stay up till about 3am in the mornings just trying to solve those tricky problems or study for our organic tests. Mabel used to take energy drinks that helped her stay awake but would crush right after our tests. She tried to introduce me to the 5 hour energy drink but i never gave in but somehow survived the allnighters. I am glad you are a part of making my day a memory doc.
Adowa is my high school buddy and we go way back. She knows all about my high school life; she knows about my popular Dj Woodman days on the AGISS campus and how the seniors used to bother me because they claimed I was the "AGISS fine boy". LOL. Adowa and I lost contacts after high school but thanks to Facebook, we reconnected and became even closer when she relocated to the United States. Thank you for being part of this day Adowoa!
JayDah is the daughter of the bride's best friend from junior high school. She is so cute and a princess. JayDah lives with her paents in the UK and will be flying over for the big day. Excited to have her on our train.
This cutie is a family friend's daughter. She is so excited to be part of the big day! We are equally excited to have her as well.
I chose David to be my best Man because of the good friendship we have together. My friendship with David started from Anoka Community College and continued to the University of Minnesota where we both majored in Electrical Engineering. We also currently work for the same Engineering firm and he sits across from me. David and I share many ideas together and I am glad to consider him as a great friend.
I chose Kojo to be part of the groomsmen not only because he is my younger brother, but because he is truly my best friend. We have been through a lot growing up. Being close in age, we shared many of the same interests and hobbies as we made our way through childhood, which allowed us to become very close friends. We’ve managed to remain very close as we’ve grown into adults, and I’m very grateful for that. I couldn’t have asked for anything more in a little brother.
Emma was my high school buddy and we were known to be “too old for the class” lol Interesting times though and memorable times. We also became study buddies during high school. Our communication with him never ended after high school. We always keep each other in the loop and glad to have Emma be a part in the celebration.
I met Lawrence in high school as he was my brother Kojo’s class mate. We became friends during high school but our friendship became stronger as we grew older. My brother, Lawrence and I all in leaved in the same house had lots of fun together. After knowing each other and living together for so long, I could not do this without him and happy for him to be part of this celebration.
Kwaku Snr is another sibling of mine. His the eldest of my twin brothers who come after my brother Kojo. I could not do this without him. We share a lot of memories together growing up. We also have a lot in common and very excited to have him in my wedding.
Ernerst is another friend who can never be forgotten in great moments like these. . I really do not know what he would have done to me if he was not made part of this celebration. Lol. Anyway, he was my high school classmate and sat next to next to each other at same point if I remember correctly. We were for not missing dining hall food called "choo" for anything. We studied together and ended up sleeping on our books while hiding to study. Lol. Glad to have you in the celebration brother.
This little guy is Ann's cousin and was chosen to be ring bearer because of his cuteness. He also looks very good in a suit and tie and also has a great smile.

Thanks for taking the time to go through our photos.
I am blessed to have such great parents and can boastfully say that I have the best parents in the world. My parents have been very supportive of every decision and step I have made growing up. My parents have been by myside no matter how rough the road has been.
I thank God for granting me the greatest mother on earth. A special thanks also goes to my late step father, Clinton Askew who has been my greatest support and part of the reason I am here today. A special thanks in rememberance of my departed grandparents and uncles. May their gentle souls rest in peace.
My sincere gratitude also goes to all my extended family members; uncles and aunties and who have been supportive throughout my life. God bless you all!
My parents have been very supportive and I can’t thank them enough for where they have brought me. I’m very grateful for all the advice especially the financial advice during college. I thank my Dad for the discipline he instilled in me in my teenage years. Apparently, I was very stubborn.lol. Anyway, that discipline has led me this far. My parents have been an inspiration in my life and I know they are very excited to see me get married especially to this wonderful woman of mine; Ann. Thanks Mon and Dad for all your love and support.
In the just started relationship, there was always a little jealousy, fights and quarrels. In 2015, Annechael felt like it was time to introduce Kwame to her parents. She called her parents and both planned to travel to meet Ann's step dad and mum and introduce her new found love but it was rather unfortunate that Annechael’s step dad passed on to eternity later that year. Kwame expressed how glad he was to have had the opportunity speak with him on phone before he passed. Annechael was in so much pain and agony but Kwame stood by her through it all. During the funeral, Kwame was very helpful and worked very hard and made sure that everything was successful. Due to Kwame’s hardwork and participation, Ann was very convinced that she had found the perfect gentleman sent from God.
After the funeral, Kwame asked Ann to take a day off from work because he was taking her to Vegas for a mini vacation so she could relax and clear up her mind from being in so much sorrow due to the loss of her step dad. They got to Vegas on a Friday evening and early Saturday morning around 6am, Kwame told Ann that he was taking her for wine tasting and had to dress up nicely as she always does. Upon their arrival, Ann asked Kwame, "why are we at a hot air balloon place", and Kwame smiled and replied, “I knew you would love it”. As the hot air balloon flew up to about 3000ft above the ground, Kwame went down on his knees and popped the question. Tears dropped down Ann's cheeks and in tears of joy, Ann agreed to marry Kwame.
I was born in the United Kingdom and moved to Ghana at a very young age where I spent most of my life growing up. I attended one of the best high schools in Ghana; the Accra Girls' Senior High School (AGISS). I moved to the United states after high school to further my education. I attended the Rowan College of Gloucester county where I earned an Associates of Science in Biology. I then transferred to Rutgers; the state university of New Jersey for a semester and later decided to transfer to the University of Minnesota. As fate would have it i met Kwame at the U.
Growing up, I participated in several sports such as soccer, volleyball and track & field. I was more involved in sports during my high school days but also took studies seriously. I earned an Associate of Science degree at the Anoka Ramsey community college. I then transferred to the University of Minnesota where I earned my Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree. During my undergraduate study at the University of Minnesota, I met Ann at one of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) general meetings. One will wonder what a Biology student was doing at an engineering function. Lol. We became friends and the rest is history.
In 2011 Annechael moved from New Jersey to Minnesota to further her college education. Annechael was a Biology major in the College of Biological Sciences at the University of Minnesota and Kwame was an Electrical engineering major in the College of Science and Engineering at the U.
Annechael joined the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE), an engineering student group on campus where Kwame was student leader. Kwame and his team organized monthly general membership meetings. Ann happened to attend one of these meetings as a new student at the U. Kwame met Ann at one of the meetings and that is where it all began.
