Tell us your love story: Groom: We initially met online on Match.com. We went on our first date, which lasted over 11 hours, and we have been together ever since.
When did you know that your partner was the one? Bride: After our first conversation, I contacted my cousin and informed her that I met my husband. Groom: After our first conversation, I had a good inclination we were pretty compatible. Once we went on our first date, I knew this was the woman I would one day marry.
How did he propose? Groom: We had a difficult time finding the right ring, so after months of searching my bride finally found “the” ring. The moment was so special, I took her to a little park in Southlake, Texas, sat her down on the park bench, got down on one knee and asked for her hand in marriage.
What’s the key to the success of your relationship? Bride: First and foremost as I previously mentioned, Christ is the center of our relationship! The second staple of our relationship is being able to communicate about any and all things. Groom: For me, it is imperative that I always respect my wife. She will always know the only one that comes before her is my God. If we have a problem, we will always confront it with a mutual respect and deal with the issue in love.
Why do you want to be included in JET love? Both: We have both grown up with JET and have always dreamed about being featured. It would be an incredible honor and we believe we portray and live a life that emulates what Black love looks like.
