Nailah Gobern & Jamal Lee

Venue: Playa Bonita Hotel and Resort in Panama City, Panama

Honeymoon: Caribbean Cruise

Home: Laurel, MD

• Nailah is a business manager and Jamal is director/chief engineer at Breasia Studios. Nailah and Jamal met while attending separate events in the same venue. That night, the duo chatted for 20 minutes but that was only the beginning to many more bonding moments. Continuous communication remains at the core of their marriage.

He knew he was in love when…

Nailah left to visit her home country of Panama for two weeks (for the first time after they began dating). He felt a loss because she wasn’t with him during that time.  He realized that he had a great and unique connection with her that was hard to deny.

She knew she was in love when…

She was talking to one of her girlfriends about Jamal and recognized that he was the man she had asked for in prayer at a church women’s conference several years before meeting him. She also realized that she could not envision herself spending the rest of her life with anyone else.

In 10 years we will…

Have an overwhelming blessing from God making us closer friends, stronger partners and greater lovers.

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

That marrying a Black, Latin-American woman, would give him a double dose of spice in his life. To steal a quote from Ne-yo, “..the way you storm around, makes me wanna tear you down.”

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

How difficult it would be to let go of her last name.

Our favorite activities to do together are…

Travel to new regions, try new foods and dancing.

Our nicknames for each other are…

Nailita because it is cute. Nailah doesn’t have a nickname for Jamal because she loves his name.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

Just about every destination works for us. We enjoy spending time together. Experiencing new things and fun places. Together, we make the best of it. Our fun and our joy is based on us, so we can make the best out of the worst places.

Our song is…

“I’ll Always Love You” by Tito Nieves and “Love On Top” by Beyonce.

Our perfect date night is…

Dinner at one of our favorite restaurants, salsa and disco dancing, and candles at the end of the night. We are just getting started; we’re still on our first date.
