A Wedding To Remember
Entertainment executive Hassan Smith, who's the Road Manager for John Legend Inc., and his new bride Walkitria Smith pose hand in hand on their wedding day.
“Walkitria and I met on August 4th 2012 in Norfolk, Virginia,” the groom tells us. “John Legend and I were campaigning for President Obama and Walkitria was volunteering for voter registration. I noticed her from a distance. My first thought was how stunning she looked. After a few minutes, I decided to walk over to her. I introduced myself and we automatically had great chemistry. We exchanged business cards and the relationship started from there.”
“To be the bride was a whirlwind, I felt there were so many moving parts around me that I was oblivious to,” says Walkitria. “I was so caught up in Hassan and our love for each other. The feeling was being of the world but not in it for that moment in time.”
“To be the groom to this bride was surreal,” says Hassan. “I was always optimistic I would find my soul mate and God blessed me 10 times over with this woman. My family and friends all adore her! The process and wedding was a dream come true.”
“My favorite part of the wedding was watching Walkitria appear as she began to walk down the aisle to me,” says the groom. “It was at that moment I felt at ease and blessed for all God has done for me.”
Videographer David Hill from Together Forever Films captured the magic of the evening on film. Plus, we hear the star-studded guest list included Common, AJ Calloway, Janell Snowden, Elizabeth Radler and the President of Alexander McQueen North America. Join us as we congratulate Hassan and Walkitria on their union. The couple are currently honeymooning in the Maldives.
