Eve Bridal: How did you meet?
Peter: We first met in a church where I used to fellowship. Though we never talked or had any relationship, we could exchange glances in church. I left the church after three years and after sometime, I learnt she had also left. We met again after seven years in Kitengela and as they say, the rest is history.
Eve Bridal: What attracted you to each other?
Rahab: His good looks — he is so handsome you cannot miss to notice him. He is also principled, sober and focused.
Peter: It’s like she read my mind. I wanted to use the same words to describe her. She is such a beauty and has all a man desires in a woman. Above all, she is God fearing.
Eve Bridal: How did he propose?
Rahab: He took me to a hotel, I could tell something was cooking. He was confident though and when he popped the question it was obvious, and I said yes.
Eve Bridal: Did you have traditional ceremonies?
Rahab: Yes, we had four of them.
