Members of Alpha Kappa Alpha surround Imelba during the singing of their sorority hymn that is reserved for special occasions such as these. Imelba has known a number of the women
for more than 10 years.
Christopher purchased Imelba’s ring six months after they began dating, though they were together for two years, before he felt the time was right. When asked how he knew so early, Christopher replies, “It felt like fate.”
The cake was even a sign of the couple’s unity by having the R for their shared last name larger than their individual initials. Imelba used her savvy as a former event planner to plan her nuptials for less than $10,000!
Imelba wed the love of her life, Christopher, on September 13, 2008, in Long Island, New York. The bride’s maid of honor, Yardley, helps her put the finishing touches on the day’s ensemble.
