Delighted, and not at all surprised, to see that this wedding was picked by readers and editors at Washingtonian Bride & Groom as one of the 15 Favorite in 2015. We love it, too!
The Bride Wore a Gold Dress at this Modern Potomac View Terrace Wedding
Because why not?
The city: Johannesburg. The setting: a boarding-school fundraising ball. Fola, a private-equity executive from Nigeria, was instantly captivated that night by Jordan, then a newly recruited English teacher from America. Under the guise of arranging English lessons for himself, Fola walked over, introduced himself, and asked for her number. “I thought he was handsome and charming, even if he was a bit misguided in his pickup strategy,” Jordan says.
