He knew he was in love when…

When he met her on their first date together, he knew something was different about this woman. Not only was she beautiful, but he also felt her energy and spirit. She made him laugh and that is something he needed in his life so desperately. He knew, based on the feeling he got whenever she was around, that she would one day be his wife.

She knew she was in love when…

On one particular day she was having a rough time emotionally. He was there by her side from morning to night comforting her and giving her the peace she needed along with the reassurance that everything would turn out in her favor. She knew then that she loved him and wanted him in her life.

 In 10 years we will…

Have seen an abundance of blessings manifest in our lives. We will have a beautiful family surrounding us as we continue to see the glory of God in our marriage.

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

That marriage is a constant journey. To keep the passion in your marriage you have to rekindle it everyday. Make the most of the time you have.

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

That sometimes short-term goals end up being long-range goals when it comes to manifesting the things you both want in the relationship. Directing the same amount of focus to reach a goal and be successful is the key.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Explore our surroundings and travel to new destinations. Just like life is a journey, so is a marriage. We are continuously learning and growing through the love of God.

Our nicknames for each other are…

“Butterscotch” and “My King.” Maxwell calls his wife “Butterscotch” because that’s his favorite candy, her skin is smooth as butter, plus she’s so sweet. She calls her husband “My King” because he protects her heart like he protects his castle, our home.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

Old Town Alexandria. It’s a very eclectic place with nostalgic and romantic scenery. It’s the perfect place for lovers.

Our song is…

“You and I” by Avant and Keke Wyatt.

Our perfect date night is…

We love to go on weekend getaways with each other. Beautiful hotel suites or a bed and breakfast locations are romantic and refreshing. While there, we love to walk through the town, see the sights and, of course, eat!
