How did you meet?
They say that North Carolina A & T State University has the greatest return to sources on Earth (GHOE)and that may be true for Ard and me. It was my first time there, so I didn’t know what to expect, but I was excited to see what my friends (the two former A&T students) had planned for the weekend. We attended a completely black party on Friday night. While partying and dancing with friends, Dra walked by and started reconnecting with the former students with whom I was. He saw me and could not resist, but to get to know me. Since I didn’t even know myself for five seconds, the jokes started; the one where he kept calling me Krispy, lol. Although I was insulted, I was intrigued by how Dra could tell, so he put the “Mack” skills to work. The night ended with Dra asking for my number and we have been inseparable ever since!
Tell us about the proposal.
During most of our relationship we lived separately in different cities. Dra, who bounced several times before landing in DC with me lived in Boston during the time he proposed. He sent me an email signing up which won me a paid trip to Boston to visit him for the weekend. I was very excited and of course I jumped at the opportunity to have some time with my boo. :-). He made reservations for dinner At Double Eagle Steakhouse del Frisco is June 23, 2018. June is the month we will celebrate “officially”! We were more than an hour after; I do not know why I was traveling in slow motion that day. When we finally arrived at the restaurant, we found out that they were running behind us and decided to sit at the bar and drink cocktails while waiting for our table.
Our table was finally ready, and we were escorted to a table overlooking the beautiful waters of Seaport (Boston neighborhood). During dinner, a photographer came to our table to take pictures. He mentioned that he worked for the restaurant and took photos for their social media page, so of course I started smiling for the gram’, lol. We had an incredible year dinner full of laughter.
I didn’t want the night to end, so we took a closer look at the water and walked onto the pier. I noticed the same photographer who was hiding, he mentioned that he was waiting on his Uber, but I did not know that he was waiting to photograph the proposal. Dra got down on her knees and asked me to marry him and the rest is history! We will be # toohot2randle forever !
Describe your marriage attracts.
I knew I wanted a classic and timeless dress, I didn’t want to go back to the pictures and say, “What did I have on?”, lol. My dress had diamond high profile jewelry spaghetti straps with lace and crystals throughout the bodice. The dress was a line and lace doubled the floor, resulting in a 6-foot lace train and an 8-foot veil.
What was the wedding shopping experience for you?
I knew from the beginning what kind of dress I wanted. Surprisingly, I never went to a clothing store to try on clothes. I knew I wanted a personal look, so I contacted Erica Angeline from Atlanta, GA to design my dress. Working with her was phenomenal, she understood my vision and the look I was trying to achieve. My sisters, Krista and Jadonna, were with me at every stage from the initial consultation to the many suits that took place.
Have you integrated a culture into your marriage?
We didn’t do a traditional rehearsal dinner, we wanted to have an event that all our guests could expect, so we had year HBCU MEET & GREET! Since it was reunion, we decided to ask everyone to wear their favorite HBCU gear! We kept the same energy at the wedding and instead of the table numbers we used the names of the places we visit on our university campuses. Kristy is a proud graduate of Tuskegee University and deondra is a graduate of A & T University of North Carolina.
What is the best memory of your wedding?
It’s difficult because I have so many good memories. The ceremony was by far my favorite part of the day. The feelings we shared when we said our vows had no price, I will cherish those memories forever.
What is the best advice you can give to engaged couples?
Enjoy this season of planning, but also remember that your WEDDING is important, more than the wedding. Marriage comes and goes in a few hours, but your marriage must stand the test of time. Keep time for each other, an event with everything that needs to be done.
