How we met
We went to high school and had a brief meeting and graduated together, but we didn’t really know each other. Fast forward to 18 years after follow each other on social media. I approached him, we had a brief DM moment and, ironically, he was in town. We landed at the same jazz festival in Baltimore and after that meeting, we never let up from that day!
It happened a few weeks after our first real vacation together in Jamaica in 2019. it was my sister’s birthday party at my house; my whole family was there. Apparently, he told my mother and everyone that he intended to apply. But long after the end of the celebration, this still did not happen. Reluctantly, after staying with us until almost midnight, my sister and family left. Not knowing that he was taking me to our little meditation room around 1 a.m., he asked me to look into our garden, and when I turned around, he was on his knees with my beautiful ring. He told me he loved me and wanted to spend the rest of his life with me. Although my family was disappointed not to have seen him, he explained that he did not want to take away my sister’s birthday and that he wanted this Moment to be between him and me.
Our original Plan was Royal Caribbean and we kind of had it, but I would say it was more of a nice simple but elegant opportunity. I was wearing a dress by CRISTIANO LUCCI, after designed by a black Designer named Paulette Cleghorn. My husband was wearing a fitted and traditional traditional Tuxedo with a custom-made bodice from another black artist / designer. I had a great shopping experience at a local bridal boutique Elite Secrets Bridal Boutique in black, where I chose the first dress I tried on. Our experience was pretty simple when we went black-owned with everything from our stationery to our, decor, flowers, DJ, makeup, photography, videography, hair, nails, hairdresser, tailor.
My second dress was also beautiful, but it was a simple online purchase. Our shoes: the groom was wearing Stacy Adams and my two pairs were from Bagdley Mischka’s bridal collection. My veil, my helmet and my bouquet all came from the same bridal shop.
Integration of culture
We are believers in Christ so, as a guest, we sat down a worship Playlist created and tried to have sage, lavender and other burning essential oils as our guest sat down.
The best Memory
For my husband, it was when he saw me go down the hall and our common memory was when we were dancing at the reception advertised as Mr. and Mrs. Corsley Edwards II
