• Brenda is a dietitian at Palmyra Nursing Home. Marcus is director of marketing and PR at Phoebe Sumter Medical Center. Shortly after an initial lunch date, Marcus called Brenda and they conversed for hours. Finding that they had a lot in common, such as their love of family and sports, the pair began a courtship. Years later, marriage seemed like the next step, but there wasn’t a proposal. When Brenda didn’t receive a diamond on Christmas Day, Marcus overheard her expressing disappointment to her mother. The next day, with the ring he had already purchased, Marcus asked Brenda to be his wife.

He knew he was in love when…

She came to visit him in a rainstorm and they talked all night.

She knew she was in love when…

She could talk to him about anything and he listened.

In 10 years we will…

Renew our vows in a romantic way, hopefully in Paris.

Before the groom got married, he wishes someone had told him…

That it was such a good thing to be married to the woman of his dreams.

Before the bride got married, she wishes someone had told her…

Marriage creates such a powerful bond between husband and wife that words cannot explain.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Attending Atlanta Falcons games.

Our nicknames for each other are…

“MJ” and “Joyce”  because he is a big fan of Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson (and of course he shares their initials) and Joyce is her childhood nickname.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

The Ritz Carlton at Reynolds Plantation, where we were married.

Our song is

“Adore” by Prince

Our perfect date night is…

Dinner at an Italian restaurant and a late night movie at home.
