Renice and Ronte met at work, became great friends and fell madly and deeply in love. They both knew that their love was written in the stars, and one evening while Ronte was at work, Renice came home to find an engagement ring and note waiting for her beneath their Christmas tree. Of course she said "Yes!"
Cupid Knows Best
“We started out as really good friends and that lead to an irresistible feeling of knowing that I couldn’t live without him,” says lovely bride Renice. “We both felt the same way. It was like cupid stuck us with an arrow.”
“Cynthia Riddick –Saunders, a long time friend of the family that has know me since I was a baby, designed the bridesmaids’ dresses,” says Renice. “I wanted something comfortable and something that could be worn again for my girls and the color was red.”
“My daddy walked me down the aisle,” says Renice. “It was just right for him to walk me down aisle because I think he’s the epitome of what I’ve always wanted in a husband. My daddy is my knight and shinning armor, and regardless of whatever I go through he’ll always be by my side. On that day I needed him by my side.”
“I did cry,” says Renice. “I had a lot of emotions that day. His eyes were a bit on the glossy side too and the palms of his hands were very sweaty. I can say I do remember that he had the biggest smile on face as if he were a kid in a candy store.”
The couple added a fog machine and a spotlight to make their first dance more romantic. They requested the deejay mix Charlie Wilson’s “You Are” with Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s “On The Run” for their big moment out on the dance floor.
