Tell us your love story: Both: We met at Savannah State University while registering for classes. It’s amazing how two 18-year-old kids would meet in the summer of 2003 at the college we were both going to attend for the fall and have been inseparable ever since then!
When did you know that your partner was the one? Bride: I knew Edward was the one the first time I met him. I loved his spirit and his personality. For Edward, he knew I was the one after we came back to school in the fall and we met each other again while moving into our dorm. For fate to work like that, there was no way he was letting me go!
How did he propose? Bride: He proposed on my 30th birthday in Atlanta. We had gone out to dinner with a couple of our friends and when dessert came, my ring was tied to a wine bottle. I still get goosebumps thinking about it!
What do you love best about one another? Bride: I love Edward’s support and personality. This man has supported me since day one. He is not only my partner, but my best friend. Edward loves my heart and dedication. I always told Edward I would be there for him and I have been. I give 100 percent to my family and my friends and I’m dedicated to him and our marriage.
What’s the key to the success of your relationship? Both: The key to the success in our relationship is communication and laughter. We are not afraid to talk to each other and laugh at one another. We are friends, we are lovers and we are partners!
Why do you want to be included in JET love? Both: We want to be included in JET Love because we know our love story is one that should be told. It’s not often you know at 18 you have found the love of your life, but we did! We watched each other grow over the years, have supported each other mentally, physically and emotionally. We just want everyone to love like we love and know that marriage is one of the best decisions we could have ever made!
