Happy Wedding Wednesday!

I am gearing up for another sensational summer wedding! Next up is our sensational couple Ashton and Deon, who will tie the knot on August 19th in Oxon Hill, MD. Today, I'm happy to be sharing some of their love story along with their beautiful engagement photos captured by my friendor, Rhea of Rhea Whitney Photography. In fact, Rhea referred the beautiful bride to me, and we instantly hit if off, as she's super sweet and has an amazing vision for the big day. Needless to say, I can't wait to witness this beautiful couple say I do!

How and when did you meet?

We met in 2006 at Seed Public Charter School.  Deon worked there at the time, and my sister Marsha was working there as the HR Manager and allowed me to work there for my winter break.  Marsha took the both of us to lunch and of course I immediately had a crush; he later told me he did as well.  We remained friends until 2010 when we became a couple.

What about marriage are you looking forward to most?

Growing old together with your best friend and sharing the special moments in life together, and watching our family grow.

How adorable is their daughter, Paiten!

What do you love most about your relationship?

Being able to be yourself, I mean your complete self around one another.  Having no secrets and being honest with one another regardless of how good, bad or ugly it may be.  Knowing someone to the point that they don’t have to say anything at all, that’s us in a nutshell.  

What song would you dedicate to him/her?

Ashton: I would dedicate to him Beyonce “1+1”.

Deon: I would dedicate to her Usher “Here I Stand”.
