Tell us how you met and all about the proposal. We met through online dating. We both swiped right and haven’t looked back! For the proposal, I believed Crystal had a feeling it was coming. I had to think of a way to surprise her. I knew any special date plans would give it away. I popped the question in Orlando, Florida in front of her family while we were there for her family reunion.
What was the wedding shopping experience like for you? It was stressful. My original custom dress was finished extremely late and was not the original vision. I had to find new dresses weeks before the wedding. Nevin had custom tux made but we had to change the ceremony tux last minute. We were afraid the groomsmen would compete with his look. Nevin’s tux was a HIT!
Wedding Party Gifts: Bridesmaids – jeweled clutch, custom robes with custom hangers, custom champagne glasses, makeup, & Moët champagne. Groomsmen – day-of tuxedo shoes, custom flasks, cuff links.
Ceremony Entrance Song: “Point of it All” by Anthony Hamilton & “Why I Love You” by Major.
First Dance Song: “Spend My Life With You” by Eric Benet ft. Tamia
What is your best memory from your wedding? Seeing all of our closest family and friends there to witness our bond.
What is the best wedding advice you can give to engaged couples? Stay organized. Create spreadsheets for your vendors, seating/ guest list, budget. My wife hated that I was so meticulous about the details but it came in handy towards the wedding date.
