Tell us your love story: Both: We began our love story in 2009 after meeting one Friday night during a youth service at Davalynn’s fathers church. After what was then a simple conversation, Roderick knew at that moment Davalynn was someone special. Groom: That night I searched through social media networks to find her. I needed to get her attention. After periods of communication our friendship became deeper. Before we both knew it days became weeks, weeks became months, & months became years. The rest was indeed history as our love only blossomed from there. Of course she played hard to get, but I continued to pursue and now we are here, says Roderick.
When did you know that your partner was the one? Groom: As the saying goes, “When you know, you just know!” I guess for me it was when I couldn’t see a single day of my life without her being a part of it. Bride: He was the answer to a prayer that I had prayed for years prior to us dating. He knows how to love me unconditionally.
How did you propose? Groom: After four years of dating, I proposed to her on a Sunday evening in October last year with close family surrounded at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in New Jeresey.
What was your most memorable moment from your wedding day? Groom: The live band, the fact that I was able to get the band that I use to play for to come and play for my wedding made my wedding very special. And, also having the singer Jesse Campbell from The Voice be our guest soloist. Bride: My most memorable moment was having my last grandparent there to celebrate with us. Also, having all our family and friends there and the enjoying themselves.
What’s the key to success in your relationship? Both: The key to success for our relationship is prayer and communication. And always allowing God to lead you and to always put him first in the good times and the bad.
