Happy Wedding Wednesday!
Summer wedding season is in full swing, and I am so excited to witness our sensational couples say I do this season. First up, we have Shelley and Erroll, who will tie the knot next Saturday evening in Upper Marlboro, MD. This perfect pair are so looking forward to starting their life together as one, and are sharing some of their love story here today along with their gorgeous engagement photos by Hamida Giwa.
How and when did you meet?
We met online and after a few days of messaging back and forth, decided to meet up. Our first date was supposed to be at a bowling alley, but there was some tournament going on, so we couldn’t bowl, so we went to dinner instead.
Most memorable date?
Shelley: I would say it was the picnic we went to at a park in Alexandria, VA. I usually hate the outdoors, but the weather was perfect that day and Erroll had packed a yummy picnic lunch, and It was really nice and romantic.
Erroll: For me it was a Valentines Day date, it was planned as a surprise to Shelley. I wanted something different and somewhat unique. Unbeknownst to both of us we'd be walking in the cold of DC winter but the different spots on a walking chocolate tour made up for it. Not only was it treat to have the variety of chocolates but it also came with a little guided history tour of Old Georgetown.
What about marriage are you looking forward to most?
Shelley: Spending my life with my best friend.
Erroll: Aside from knowing I would have a life long partner to go on the rest of this journey with and experience my fails as well as my wins. I look forward to seeing Shelley as a mother, knowing that our child will have instilled in him/her an importance on education, a good sense of core values and knowing God.
What do you love most about your relationship?
That we can laugh about anything together and that we will always have each others backs.
What song would you dedicated to him/her?
Shelley: Beyonce’s Once in a Lifetime
Erroll: Babyface's Two Occasions
For fun...of the following who is your favorite TV/Movie couple? a) Martin and Gina (Martin), b) Darius and Nina (Love Jones), c) Claire and Cliff (The Cosby Show), d) Ross and Rachel (Friends), e) Whitley and Dwayne (A Different World), f) Akeem and Lisa (Coming to America), g) Lucy and Ricky (I Love Lucy), h) choose a couple not listed.
It would have to be the couple that's most like us, Dwayne and Whitley from A Different World, since he's very nerdy and I'm (a little) spoiled lol.
Don't you just love LOVE?! In 10 days, they'll be Mr. and Mrs. Horne, and I couldn't be happier for them. Share well wishes for this sensational couple in the comments section.
