How they meet…
The pair met in college at Georgia Southern University.
Their first date…
Looking back on their first date, Cadeidra reflects on their simple and sweet meeting with a smile.
“AJ took me to Longhorn Steakhouse in Statesboro, GA as our first date. He picked me up for lunch in between classes and we ate, talked, and studied for a few hours.”
Their proposal story…
AJ proposed at Cadeidra’s family reunion in front of all of her family, as he knew she wanted her family to be a part of the big day!
When they knew they were “the one”…
For Cadeidra, she knew in heart AJ was the one fairly early on.
Within their first year of dating, she says, “AJ felt like home to me and I could be myself with him. He had a naturally bubbly and caring aura and I’d always describe him as “a truly good person” when others would ask about him. Whenever I was around him I felt genuinely happy, like the sun was always shining.”
AJ knew Cadeidra was his person when he realized early on how “she always wanted the best for [him], even when [he] probably didn’t want to hear the answer.”
He adds, “I can always feel the love and concern in her voice regardless of the situation.”
Engagement session & theme…
While the couple didn’t have a theme for their engagement photos, Cadeidra specifically chose the location.
“I just fell in love with the salt flats,” she says. “I loved the white backdrop with the mountains in a distance. Very clean and not something you can find in Atlanta.”
Favorite thing to do as a couple…
Together, they love to explore Atlanta and try new restaurants.
“We also love watching the Blacklist and other Netflix shows,” they add.
Wedding planning so far…
Their wedding planning journey has had some detours along the way.
Cadeidra explains, “We were originally supposed to be married in October 2020, however, Covid changed our plans. Luckily for me, all of the main vendors were booked, however, rescheduling out a full year was tough!”
While she was a bit bummed by the setback, she began the planning process again in 2021 and admits, “so far everything is going as planned.”
What they’re looking forward to most on their wedding day…
Cadeidra says she is of course most excited to become Mrs. Taylor! And also looks forward to “having a fun party to celebrate with all of [their] friends and family.”
Besides saying “I do” to the love of his life, AJ adds, “I am so excited to see the clumsy dancing at the wedding.”
