If I say it's always a walk in the park, I will be lying and giving false hope to those who are here for inspiration. Love is a beautiful thing that takes a lot of commitment, compromise, and Christ as the big C. This was literally the same advice we got at the Little White Wedding Chapel where we wed in Las Vegas, Nevada. Marriage has its own ups and downs but what makes a couple stand out is the ability to fall in love with the same person over and over again. And I think that’s why our marriage attracts a lot of audiences.
Just a little background;
We got married on the 11th of August 2011. It wasn’t the dreamy type of wedding where we cried in the sight of each other but it was definitely the best day of my life. The wedding WASN’T a lot of things that I had always imagined; It wasn’t a typical kiosk Vegas wedding and it definitely wasn’t the kind I would’ve chosen had I been in my right mind. I was blinded in love and not even a proper wedding dress or mere makeup mattered to me.
My wedding dress was a small prom dress picked up from the ROSS store- a discount store probably cost me no more than $30. His suit was also my pick from JC Penny. The wedding was small and filled with strangers from his office but that day marked the beautiful turn of my life. I felt the butterflies walking down the little isle. I remember trying to calm my nerves as I was directed towards the little Isle by a nice lady at the chapel. As I walked down the little isle and looked up, my whole world slowed down and the room felt so empty. It felt as though we were the only people in the room. I remember him reaching out for my hand as I walked closer to meet him at the altar.
The room went quiet for a while before the Pastor proceeded with the formalities. The vows were the generic ones but they felt like they were made just special for us. It definitely marked the beginning of something incredible and when he said I DO, I felt that from deep within my soul. TO LOVE AND TO HOLD TILL DEATH DO US APART 🙌🏾 I meant every single word of it. We devoted that night to love each other FOR BETTER FOR WORSE❤️❤️❤️
