The first time Carol Sam was in­tro­duced to Fer­gu­son, she gasped. “It was at­trac­tion at first sight for me,” she re­mem­bers. De­spite that, and liv­ing miles apart with Neketo in the Ba­hamas, the two set­tled into a close friend­ship for years be­fore it fi­nally grew into more. Af­ter a year of dat­ing, Neketo had Carol’s sis­ter hide a ring that he di­rected her to over one of their marathon Skype ses­sions. “We started our re­la­tion­ship do­ing long dis­tance and dur­ing our re­la­tion­ship we saved our­selves un­til mar­riage,” says Carol.

“Love is spe­cial and when dis­tance can’t break the bond, love, friend­ship and union you have, that is unique.” They took this theme to their wedding plan­ning, call­ing it “love beyond the bor­ders,” and fo­cused on creat­ing an in­ti­mate guest list and cer­e­mony that would pay tribute to their faith and con­nec­tion. “Walk­ing down the aisle with my dad was very emo­tional,” says Carol. “And see­ing Neketo was breath­tak­ing. That was the sec­ond time he took my breath away.” Although the weather didn’t co­op­er­ate, it sure didn’t dampen spir­its. “It was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. It was like a dream, only it was our re­al­ity and those we love cel­e­brated it with us.
