They met in Ghana. It was 2006 and their paths crossed during an event for international students. Austinite Kaneisha and Damipi, from Togo (West Africa), were instantly inseparable for months, until Kaneisha had to go return to the states. Cupid struck again in 2013 when Damipi came to the United States for the first time to attend grad school. He graduated with a degree in political science just one week before the wedding – so double congrats to Damipi!
Kaneisha, a Harvard graduate, is the author of the hilarious and insightful book, Be Your Own Boyfriend. I have read it and laughed aloud the entire time and there are some really awesome tips on how to really love yourself and let your light shine. There is fantastic advice for all ladies – single, looking, married, gay or just confused. I highly recommend it! She is also the founder of, The Art of Applying, a service helping people around the world get into graduate school. Since 2010, she and her team have helping win their clients 1.8 billion in fellowships! Yes, she is an AMAZING woman!
The wedding of these two wonderful people was perfect! We got beautiful overcast weather in a time of historic Texas rainfall so we were able to enjoy all the natural beauty of Mayfield Park complete with peacocks, a piñata and lots of love!
