The flowers used for the bouquet were roses, calla lily and hydrangeas. Roses are the bride’s favorite and calla lilys were the groom’s favorite.
“No, I didn’t think I’d ever find true love,” said the bride. “My focus was advancing my career.”
“Over time, I began to see how she became an intricate part in helping me to become a better man,” said the groom of knowing his bride was the one. “We had so many things in common, such as sports, traveling and shopping. Our friendship developed into a strong everlasting love.”
The bride had nothing but love surrounding her on her wedding day. She and her bridal party enjoyed her bachelorette weekend in Montego Bay, Jamaica. How fun!
“I chose to make Angie my wife because she motivates me to become a better man,” said the groom.
“I’ll never forget the day I knew Tapona was the one for me,” Angelia shared. “One day during work hours, I stepped away from my desk and God spoke to me and said Tapona is going to be my husband, he will treat you exactly like a woman should be treated. My thoughts were, ‘oh no that man matches his towels and wash cloths; he is very picky about way to many things for me.’ I didn’t think anything of it, but as time progressed I realized how thoughtful and caring he was. Every day he would call me to see how my day was going, on Friday’s, he would bring me a cupcake to my job and most importantly he always made me laugh.”
We love the traditional and elegant elements of the bride and groom’s wedding decor!
“No, I never thought I would find true love when I did,” said the groom. “I didn’t even have a desire to get married but meeting Angelia changed everything.”
