Tell us your love story. Groom: We first met in the third grade when I moved from Chicago to Covert, Michigan. When she first met me, she talked about a Damaged outfit that I wore to school. We still laugh about that outfit today.

How did he/she propose? Groom: I took her to Lake Michigan in South Haven, Michigan on July 5, 2012. I sent a picture of the ring to all of my siblings and my mom saying, “Wish me LUCK.” We were walking on the pier as the sun was going down. As we approached the end of the pier I started to tell her how she’s my everything. Then I dropped down on one knee, asked her to marry me and she said “yes.”

What do you love best about one another? Bride: How patient he is and how he’s always looking for the good in others. Groom: How committed to our relationship and our family that she is. She’s also the pushing element and foundation of our faith

What’s the key to the success of your relationship? Both: Communication and patience.

Why do you want to be included in JET love? Groom: I’ve been looking at JET Magazine since I was a kid. My mom use to save all of the issues. I’ve always hoped to graze the magazine’s pages one day. Why not do it with and for LOVE?
