Love Stories: A Chance Meeting Leads to Love

A chance meeting led to love for Juliana and Alex. Stanley and Marie Photography describes their love story: “Juliana and Alex have the sweetest story! Alex is originally from Virginia but was in Ohio for business. Juliana is originally from Nigeria but was studying at the University of Akron. By absolute chance, she ended up at the same restaurant as Alex. Alex is usually a shy person but he felt like he should go talk to Juliana when he noticed her. After several minutes of watching and waiting, hoping that no one popped out of the bathroom he realized that she is not with anyone! He took a chance and introduced himself, and they ended up chatting for 4 hours and exchanging numbers. They've been dating ever since!”

“On Christmas Eve of 2018, Alex popped the question in St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands in the most romantic way, surrounded by sand, water, family, and drones. It was a total surprise and one of the most special days of our lives. Juliana wanted to incorporate some of her culture into their engagement photos, so she had traditional outfits shipped from Nigeria for their engagement shoot! The weather was absolutely perfect for their intimate and sultry engagement photos!”
