• Michele is a teacher in DeKalb County Schools. James is a sales representative for Orkin. The lovebirds met online and after two months of dating, James drove from Mississippi to Illinois to meet and spend Memorial Day with Michele’s family. On that holiday, James’ unexpected marriage proposal gave everyone another memorable moment to celebrate.

He knew he was in love when…

He saw her for the first time.

She knew she was in love when…

She realized they shared similar characteristics. James is loving, caring and provides for his mate, just like her father and grandfather . He’s also a man of God and his commitment to their relationship was genuine.

In 10 years we will…

Be homeowners and the parents of L. Michele’s firstborn.

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

How badly his wife had been hurt in the past.

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

How wounded and broken her husband was from his past relationships.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Watching The Real Housewives of Atlanta on the couch.

Our nicknames for each other are…

“My Queen” because Michele is James’ queen. Her nickname for James is “Love” because he is the love of her life.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

At home, cuddled up on the sofa.

Our song is…

“It Would Be You” by Johnny Gill.

Our perfect date night is…

Dinner and a movie.
