How they met…
Brionna and Desmond first met online through Facebook.
Brionna recalls, “We had been friends for quite sometime on social media. It took him to really hit me with a funny line and from there we were like bread and jelly!!”
Their first date…
For their first date, Desmond took Brionna to a cute ice cream shop called Tee Jays Sweet Tooth.
Their proposal story…
Desmond proposed to Brionna on March 13, 2021 at a well known restaurant in their hometown called the Eagles Nest.
When they knew they found “the one”…
Brionna knew Desmond was special after their first phone conversation.
“We talked for hours,” she says, “and the topic was God. It was more than just a high, it was a spiritual high… at that moment I knew something was different with him.”
From that point forward, she was “willing to figure out if he was the one God intended for [her].”
She adds, “Even though I knew what I felt in my heart, I was still until I heard from God on the matter .. So Long story short, I knew he was the one when God told me he was the one.”
Engagement session & theme…
With their love for fashion, they wanted to channel the energy of Jay Z and Beyoncé in their shoot with high fashion and pops of color.
They admit their photographer Rae Dorsey “truly came up with the dope concept” and they “let her creativity flow!”
Favorite thing to do as a couple…
Desmond and Brionna love being spontaneous together.
“We love going on spontaneous dates and outings! We feel as though you should never stop dating your spouse even when you are married.”
Wedding planning so far…
“Wedding planning for us was stressful being that we planned an entire wedding within a 6 months time frame.”
What they’re looking forward to most on their wedding day…
While the pair have already tied-the-knot, Brionna looked forward to the reception the most.
“Because I was so nervous during the actual ceremony,” she says. “But all the stressing and all the nervousness was totally worth it!”
