What started as a chance meeting at a party through a mutual friend led to a lovely spectacle of an unyielding love being sealed before God and man alike.
Their wedding theme was Live,Laugh, Love.”we wanted the wedding to be a fun way to start our wedded life so we wanted laughter with the people we love (our guests) to mark the beginning of our life” she says.
“It took a very short time before we became an item. Less than a month; the chemistry was undeniable” Rodah narrates. It was a usual valentine’s getaway, or so she thought, until they were called up on stage to read their love note, one of many that were placed on every couple’s table, each one with a different message. As soon as Rodah finished reading the note, she turned around only to find Anthony on one knee holding out a ring.
As for the vows, Rhoda says, “what stood out was the thought of how binding this is, for better for worse; it made me feel good to be saying this to the man of my dreams.” When asked what she would do differently if given the chance… “Maybe have a longer day if possible (Laughs). It was too short!”
