How did you meet? Teron and I first locked eyes at a basketball game in 2013. His team was playing my old High School. He and I shared numbers and connected via social media. We talked for a couple of weeks but then our conversations stopped. However, a year later we then ran into each other at a night club and the rest is a history full of love!
Tell us your proposal story. We were on vacation in Cancun, Mexico and Teron setup a romantic dinner by the water and proposed. He told the hosts but they were so caught up in the moment they didn’t relay the message to our server for the evening. Teron had the server take our photo but had his phone set on video mode. When the server took the phone Teron looked into my eyes and expressed his love for me. Following that he got down on one knee. It was absolutely amazing!
Describe your engagement session. We had our engagement photos done at the Capitol in Richmond, Va. We decided to go with this location for our theme of black elegance. Our wedding colors are black with silver accents and our photos matched our theme perfectly. My fiancé and I are both huge basketball fans so our casual shoot featured us with matching sweatshirts which included our wedding date with our wedding hashtag. The day was absolutely beautiful and our photo’s turned out amazing by our amazing photographer!
What did you do on your first date? I attended one of his basketball games. Following the game we went out for food/drinks at a sports bar – we both absolutely love basketball!
What’s your favorite thing to do as a couple? We love attending church on Sundays. Attending basketball games – our best one was watching Kobe Bryant in one of his final game before he retired! We also love date nights which involve dinner and movies.
How has wedding planning been so far? Planning our wedding has been a breeze and absolutely fun! We’ve gotten every detail planned and we still have nine months left!
Tell us what you’re looking forward to most on the wedding day? We are looking forward to our family and friends coming together to share the love that we have for each other. It’s going to be a beautiful day! We are so excited!
