Our Love Story
Darius spends most of his time building online businesses, undertaking big remodeling
projects, and playing video games. Most people who’ve met him can agree that he is a
very calm guy with a subtle sense of humor who enjoys learning new things, staying
busy, and leading a stress-free and healthy life.
Steva is the complete opposite of Darius and helps prove the theory that “opposites attract.” Even though she is very logical and pragmatic by nature, she is also very outgoing, sarcastic, and loves to spend time with her family while being the “belle of the ball.”
This is our story of love and reconnecting our paths…
We met while attending middle school in 2008. We were 2 kids who had no interest in getting to know each other, but our destiny unfolded 6 years later once our paths crossed again.
After running into each other at a shopping mall, we went on a first date shortly after, which entailed dinner and a movie. After discovering a mutual love of all things finance, computers, and Google research on the most random topics, it wasn’t long after in which we became inseparable, and our whirlwind romance began.
Our family describes us as “two peas in a pod” and “perfect for each other.” We knew that this was It pretty early on and that we had found our soulmate and a unique friendship within the other.
Now, after 7 years together (and a lifetime to go), we’ve bought our very first home, traveled around the world, got engaged over Christmas, survived quarantine, and welcomed a rambunctious dog into the mix.
We can’t wait to celebrate our wedding day with you, our close family and friends, as we embark on this next chapter together!
