In the know



Sometimes those in love know it, but for Valencia Johnson and Michael Calliste, it wasn't quite so obvious.

"Everybody saw that we should be together before we did because of the fun we had," Mrs. Calliste said. "We kept calling each other friends but everybody said, 'Why don't you two hook up?'"

After the friends, who met outside a nightclub in Atlanta about four years ago, made the transition the rest has been both easy and successful.

"We're just a good match," Mrs. Calliste said. "It's just a feeling of comfort, of being secure in who you are and in the relationship and it just being a natural thing."

The couple exchanged vows Saturday at Sacred Heart Cultural Center in Augusta.
