Tell us all about the proposal!
The proposal was a simple surprise in the comfort of my home. With Derrick living in Mississippi, we took turns visiting each other on the weekends about once a month and it was his turn to come see me. We had decided to take my daughter to the theater after I ran errands that Saturday morning, I returned and began getting ready for the movies. As I walked out of my room preparing my lips to say,”okay, I’m ready,” there he was standing with a ring in his hand and my daughter smiling recording on my phone. He got down on one knee, said my full name, “Tiffany Andromeda Terry”, will you marry me?” The sweetest part is he involved my daughter and it was a special moment for the entire family. I couldn’t have asked for a different proposal.
What is your best memory from the wedding?
The best memory from my wedding is seeing my mother in law being wheeled in prior to the start of the wedding. As I waited for my debut down the aisle, there she was riding in; beautiful in all white. Her battle with cancer was slowly ending and we were unsure if she would make it. I teared up with joy and love in my heart to know she will witness this before she passes. God called her home January 23rd.
What advice do you have for brides-to-be?
I would say do not worry about the details. Our wedding was organized in 2 weeks and it was amazing. The most important part is walking down the aisle and being with friends and family.
