They say there are 2 sides to every story so here’s our stories:
“Wassup with your pretty a**”. Rashaad’s first words to me during our senior year of high school. He would say those same words to me every time he saw me in the hallway and I would blush and go on my way. For an entire year it stayed that simple.
After high school we reconnected through Facebook. You can say "he slid in my DM's" & swept me off my feet with his sweet talk.
From Facebook to Oovoo (our FaceTime back then) to texts & calls, we stayed connected throughout college, planning & plotting to meet up with each other any time we could. From flights to Megabus trips, the distance between FL & VA, then NY & VA never seemed too far.
I fell in love with his character, persistence, & his inability to tell me “no”. He always knew what to do and what to say. He knew how to solve all my problems. Through it all, he’s been by my side, loving me for me. So here I am...We're getting married!
You know that old saying, “ Love at first sight.” Nickelly was mine! I didn’t act on things immediately when we met but I made sure my interest in her was always known (you know, in those highschool hallways).
Whether or not she shared those same feelings, I knew I was going to, “have me some you,” as I like to say. Eventually, I gathered up the courage to contact her and shoot my shot (yea, I slide in her DM’s after we graduated).
When we locked in, things went so well I couldnʼt see us not being together, it was evident. Being together made everything better and we would travel distances to do so if ever apart (she called me “Megabus King” because I was always on a bus on my way to see her).
No one has ever had my back like she does and I donʼt think anyone ever will. I have gained a true partner in life, my greatest accomplishment yet!
This is our truth,

Beach Semi-Formal Wedding Attire for Women
We’ll be in the Caribbean, so that means it will be hot! When considering your attire, we suggest lightweight, non-clingy fabrics to stay cool and unwrinkled. Think colorful, flowy midi or maxi dresses, pretty sundresses or jumpsuits that pair well with a pashmina or cardigan for those ocean breezes (should you need one). Since you’ll likely be walking in sand (no easy feat in high heels!), pair dressy wedges, block heels or flat sandals with your outfit so you can dance the night away with us!
Beach Semi-Formal Wedding Attire for Men
Fabrics like linen, light cottons and seersucker are highly recommended. A summer suit or some variation of it—a shirt and tie, a shirt, tie and vest, or a shirt and blazer—are typical choices. To change up the look on your suit, swap out your tie, add a pocket square and you’re on your way. Lighten things up by opting for a breathable linen-blend blazer instead of a traditional suit jacket. A button up linen shirt and lightweight pants are also great choices. We want you to be comfortable above all else.
And, don’t be afraid to sport a pair of nice sandals. Just don’t forget the pedicure!
Can I pay towards the Bride and Grooms Wedding/Honeymoon as a gift?

Tip: Remember to keep your skin protected, since the sun may be glaring down with little to no shade. Remember to bring your sunglasses!
