I met Izu and Naya on the day of their engagement at Hotel Sorella Country Club Plaza, Kansas City. Izu had been planning for a surprise engagement for a while. He left nothing to fate. But making plans was one thing, and being a part of them was another. Izu hired a professional photographer to document the special moment and that is how we met. The day we met we instantly became friends…
During this post engagement photoshoot Naya’s smile beclouded the pride the surroundings had on its beauty. Naya’s mere presence had the wind moving with the scent of love. Every direction was telling Izu one thing “she really is the one.”
Izu with his hat and goggs always has his cool mode on. But from inside, he has deep love for Naya.
When the time came, everything was all set. Izu had the table that he wanted. He was sitting there with Naya who just knew all this to be a casual romantic outing. “Close your eye” Izu told Naya. The mere words had set the butterflies in both Izu and Naya’s stomach. While Izu was excited and careful to make this right, Naya already had her mind racing for what this could possibly be. And before her wits could rest upon a conclusion, “Now open’em”, Izu said
As Naya removed her palms from her eyes, her eyes rested upon the most beautiful moment of her life. Izu was sitting in front of him smiling and in his hands was a beautiful ring.
“Naya” Izu said softly, “Never in my life I felt the urge to stay with someone forever. But that was before I fell in love with you. Since then I’ve always yearned for this single moment to ask you, Will you marry me?”
And all the people and cameras around witnessed Naya’s smile as she said “YES”
Whenever Izu and Naya are together, each one’s world seems to compress in each other’s eyes. All the painters, poets, photographers can neither capture their love nor define them in any set of words the vocabulary has or will ever have
Their togetherness itself was an enliven poem of an immortal love. The love that cannot be told, cannot be written or drawn. It can only be felt, in their hearts, in their eyes , in their hugs and kisses or in there mere presence.
Their marriage would merely exhibit the invisible bond that God had always created between them. It was just a matter of them finding each other. May they have their love and togetherness grow stronger every after every coming moment in their life.
