Bride-Seeing my groom Groom-Preparation
Terrick’s groomsmen were a mix of childhood friends and college friends. They are all like brothers.
We met in Durham, NC at Food Lion while grocery shopping. It took a second meeting in the grocery store before we exchanged numbers, we say it was fate that we came across each other a second time. Engagement: We had our second ugly Christmas sweater party with all our family and friends around the Groom threw in a little twist and had planned a secret proposal. He started off by telling everyone how we met and after that story got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!
Our favorite image from our wedding day was the one during the recessional where we are walking down the aisle together after being pronounced husband and wife because we finally became One and we were overjoyed that it finally happened!
Our First Date was a late breakfast at iHop, after that, we took a stroll in Duke Gardens, Terrick has a green thumb so he educated me on some of the flowers in the garden.
Donnell Perry was awesome, he captured some great memories and our photo album definitely tell our wedding story for us. We don’t have to sit down and explain what happened at our wedding because the pictures tell the story themselves and that was breathtaking. It’s like a video but on pictures.
Don’t panic and don’t worry! It may seem like your day isn’t going as planned but when you start to walk down the aisle nothing else will matter and the day will turn out to be the best thing ever. You will be so caught in the moment that you won’t notice anything out of place.

Our cake was simple and romantic. 3 tier with smooth icing, wrapped with a champagne ribbon at each tier and decorated with our wedding flowers to give it that soft, romantic, timeless look.
Our wedding planner, Sabrina Seymore, was amazing. She recommended top vendors and got us the best possible. She was very patient, thorough and executed exactly what we wanted.
Timeless, soft, romantic
We chose Noah’s Event Venue because it was a halfway point for both families to travel. We love the architect of the venue, the artwork and the decor that was included, overall the venue didn’t need many decors to look beautiful.
I love her spirit, her spirit is beautiful, so gentle and caring, she touches everyone she meets. She’s not only beautiful on the outside but the inside too and that was a win for me.
What I like about my husband is that he’s very driven and caring. If you are in need he will always make a way with no hesitation. I found while dating that he loves kids, I know he’s going to be an amazing father and the perfect role model.
