Safiya and Malcolm met when they were both 15 years old on a college tour in Atlanta with the local YMCA. Safiya was sitting in the front of the charter bus, listening to music when she looked up to see Malcolm smoothly walking up and sliding into the seat next to her. They spent the trip talking and joking with one another. Since then, they have been inseparable.
In 2017, they were at one of the many Bosse High School basketballs games they attended to watch Safiya’s nephew play. Little did she know, at this particular game, Malcolm had a big surprise planned. In the gym full of people, Malcolm asked Safiya to marry him. She, of course, said yes.
For their wedding they wanted to make sure and have a special detail in honor of Safiya’s father who had died of cancer a couple years before. In their ceremony program, they dedicated a poem to him. Another beautiful moment was the choir they had coordinated by Patrick Preston to sing as Safiya walked down the aisle and after they finished their vows. It was a gorgeous day with beautiful classic details.
