Victoria Hamilton & Leon Gamble

Venue: CenterStage@NoDa in Charlotte, NC
Honeymoon: Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Home: Chicago, IL

Victoria is a commercial loan administrator at Wells Fargo. Leon is an electrical engineer at SPX. Although Victoria and Leon knew each other in middle and high school, the pair didn’t begin dating until they reconnected via social media, seven years after graduation. The two always remember friendship is at the root of their relationship.

He knew he was in love when…

Victoria still stood by his side during the most difficult year of his life, and she accepted him despite his circumstances. He knew then she was the one.

She knew she was in love when…

She realized he was uncompromisingly more in love with Christ than he was with her or anything else. Leon is serious about his relationship with God, and Victoria was extremely moved and inspired by the way he lived his life. She knew if he could love Christ the way he did, he would have a perfect love for her.

In 10 years we will…

Be building our dream home, raising our children, continuing to take command and excel in our respective careers and maintaining leadership roles in our church where we are able to give back.

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

He needed to hire an armed guard to protect his thermostat setting because his wife is like a ninja changing the thermostat throughout the night to suit her preference.

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

The television would stay on ESPN 90% of the time and she would become a honorary Cowboys fan.

Our favorite activity to do together is…

Eat at our favorite restaurant followed by watching 80s movies cuddling on the couch.

Our nicknames for each other are…

“Boopy” and “Boop.” Victoria calls Leon “Boopy” and Leon calls Victoria“Boop” to mock his own nickname. Every now and then we refer to each other as “Love” or “Babe,” but “Boopy” and “Boop”are the predominant nicknames in the Gamble’s household.

Our favorite place to spend time together is…

Our hometown, Georgetown, SC with our families. There truly is nothing like home. When we go home we hit our favorite restaurants and reminisce about the fun times we had together in high school and middle school.

Our song is…

“Sweetest Thing” by Lauryn Hill.

Our perfect date night is…

A romantic candlelight dinner at one of our favorite seafood restaurants followed by dancing or something exciting and competitive like bowling. Or stopping by a lounge to hear live music or poetry is the perfect final touch before going in for the night.
