Tell us your love story: Bride: In November of 2012, Wesley and I met for the first time at Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity’s “Miss Black & Gold” pageant where I was the reigning queen and Wesley was a brother representing Meharry Medical School as an escort in the pageant. During the pageant rehearsal, I saw Wesley for the first time helping a contestant on stage and I thought, “Wow, he is the most handsome man I have ever seen.” The day after the pageant, I received a Facebook message from a guy named Wesley Peace. I looked at Wesley’s profile picture and realized he was the guy I saw on stage! The message began, “Beauty, brains, and talent, you’ve got it all…” Three weeks later, Wes and I went on our first date.
When did you know that your partner was the one? Bride & Groom: We knew after about three months of dating. Wes would say, “things are just so easy.” We could see ourselves living the rest of our lives together “easy like Sunday morning.”
How did he propose? Bride: I was coming home from a ventriloquism performance in California and Wesley picked me up from the airport. He took me to dinner and ate quite nervously. I could have sworn that he was going to propose at the restaurant, but he said he wanted to take me to the movies. After the movies, we drove to his apartment and I was certain that he was not going to propose. When he opened the door to his apartment, there was a trail of flowers leading to two champagne glasses. When I turned around from looking at the glasses, Wesley was on one knee with a ring.
What’s the key to the success of your relationship? Bride & Groom: Encouragement is vital to our relationship. We are Christians that depend on the Lord and hard workers that strive for excellence in all we do, but we seek each other’s encouragement to keep trying.
Why do you want to be included in JET love? Bride: Wesley and I would like to share our love story in hopes that the readers of JET are encouraged by it. As a little girl, I would read JET love and aspire to the success that the couples featured achieved. Now, I would like to share the wonderful love that I never knew I could find with the world.
