Candra, 36, and Alonza, 39, met online on a social networking site. As a busy medical resident, it took her four months to respond, but when she did, Alonza knew he’d found a woman worth the wait. After two blissful years together he popped the question in their living room. They’re jumping the broom this summer in Miami Beach. Read their story!
“Not a day has gone by since our first date that we have not talked or shared our ups and downs,” says Candra, who admits that the year they spent in a long distance relationship was a challenge, but they overcame it was ease. “He lovingly accepts me; sometimes with tough love. He’s very supportive of my ambitions.”
“We went ring shopping so he had an idea of what I liked,” Candra tells us. “He chose a beautiful platinum solitaire that is smooth and doesn’t rip open my medical gloves.”
“I love that my future husband is hard working,” Candra admits. “I’m helping him learn to play as hard as he works.”
“I have always teased that he is my Will Smith and I am his Jada,” jokes Candra. They certainly have that star quality, don’t they?
“Alonza is protective, generous, and frugal,” explains Candra, when asked to describe her husband-to-be in three words or less.
The lovebirds will officially become Mr. and Mrs. Mumford in a small outdoor beach wedding ceremony surrounded by their closest friends and family. “Family is everything to us,” says Candra.
“His parents have always made me feel welcome from the first time I met them,” says Candra. “And, my parents adore Alonza.”
Alonza and Candra were at home relaxing together when he snuck out of the room and returned with a ring. Candra was pleasantly surprised by his intimate and heartfelt proposal.
Love is in the air for these two who are just a few months away from matrimony.
