Kendra Sanders & Christopher Polk

Venue: Macedonia Baptist Church in Charlotte, NC

Honeymoon: Montego Bay, Jamaica

Home: Charlotte, NC

Kendra is a directory services coordinator for Time Warner Cable Business Class. Christopher is an annuity new business representative III for MetLife. The sweethearts met in college and over time their friendship blossomed into a relationship. During a vacation in Polk County, FL, Christopher told Kendra he wanted to start a new chapter upon returning to Charlotte. Within moments he proved he’s a man of his word by surprising Kendra with a proposal.

He knew he was in love when…

He couldn’t focus during the day because he was thinking about her.

She knew she was in love when…

He hugged her for the very first time.

In 10 years we will…

Have a successful photography business, be raising wonderful children and traveling.

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

How hard the guest list would be to narrow down.

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

That when the wedding day is over the real work begins.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Bowling.

Our nickname for each other are…

Chris calls Kendra “Caramel” because of her golden brown skin complexion. Kendra calls Chris “Babe” because she doesn’t like calling him “Baby.”

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

In the car because for some reason we have had some of our best conversations with sitting in the car. We also travel in the car a lot to visit family and friends regularly.

Our song is…

“The Point Of It All” by Anthony Hamilton.

Our perfect date night is…

When Chris makes plans and leaves instructions for Kendra to follow. Those dates have so many surprises and details that leave lasting impressions every time.
