When Tramaine first met Cadesha she was busy studying for law school exams so she asked him to wait. He did and it was the best decision he ever made. Read their love story and see their gorgeous wedding photos!
“I think I realized very early on that something was different about TJ,” says proud bride Cadesha. “When we first met, I was in the middle of studying for final exams and he was interested in getting to know me better and I set these ridiculous ground rules, like we couldn’t go out on any dates until finals were completely over. I just knew I would never hear from him again. I knew that this guy had to be special because he barely knew me and complied with all my crazy rules. When we were finally able to go out on dates and get to know each other he was very candid about his feelings for me and I appreciated that.”
“I loved the hairstylist that styled my hair during law school which is also the time period when I met with TJ and Rona was nice enough to travel to Atlanta to style me for the wedding weekend,” says Cadesha. “Mimi J did an amazing job with the makeup. I decided to wear my hair up for the wedding to really allow the dress to stand out.”
“It’s going to sound cliché, and I have heard people say it before, but there is something so comforting about a person who makes you comfortable enough to be your true self and not apologize for it,” says Cadesha.
“I scoured several wedding magazines and Pinterest and I kept coming back to outdoor ceremonies that took place at sunset,” says the bride. “So when we visited the Wyndham Peachtree and I saw the Colonnade Terrace I was sold.”
“Surprisingly, it felt great to be a bride,” says Cadesha. “I was a little nervous leading up to the wedding because I don’t care for lots of attention but I felt so happy the entire to day to be marrying my best friend and to be spending the day with friends and family.”
“Our wedding ceremony decor was very chic and glamorous,” Cadesha shares. “I loved the sheer purple draping added to the colonnade around with the beautiful chandelier and sequin aisle runner. We didn’t quite make sunset but I still turned out perfect.”
“We loved our reception from the food to everyone being on the dance floor the entire night,” says the bride. “I think we also really loved the first look. It was nice to have a moment alone before the chaos started.”
“I said yes because from the very start TJ has loved me for the person I am despite the fact I can be really strong willed, very opinionated, and a bit rigid at times,” says Cadesha. “He’s never tried to change me or even become annoyed with me because of it. He loves me no questions asked.”
“I chose to make Cadesha my wife because I had never experienced a love like this,” TJ tells us. “She makes me happy and keeps me smiling. She has a loving caring heart and this determination to never fail that even motivates me to be better.”
