Tell Us About Your Wedding

Our wedding was an intimate, elegant, fun affair with close family and closest friends. We are not a fussy couple but we love simple but bold elegance. Our wedding was filled with lots of love, happiness and a whole lot of dancing (soca music) from all who attended.

Wedding Colors

Fuchsia, Purple, Gold, and Navy

Describe Your Flowers

My favorite color is pink, so pink roses with orchard were gorgeous.

How Did the Two of You Meet?

He saw me out with a cousin of his and asked her for my number. When he called, I played hard to get. One time, he fixed my A/C and the rest is history

Memories and Stories About the Day

The DJ played the wrong song for my flower girls to walk on but it was the perfect song he played.

I was so nervous on the morning of the wedding. I paced the floor for 2 hours before having my makeup done and I refused to eat or drink anything.

My husband was so nervous (while) saying his vows. He made a couple of mistakes, so cute!

I cried when I got downstairs to walk into the ceremony. We were still dancing when the hotel said time is up.

The Thing We Would Have Done Different Is?

Not wasting time with planning. I had an 18-month engagement and waited until I was 10 months out to start planning.

Your Advice for Other Plus Size Brides

Love the skin you’re in! This is your day and don’t allow anything or anyone to make you forget that! Enjoy every minute of it. The day goes by way too fast!

3 Adjectives that Describe the Day

Beautiful. Unforgettable. Remarkable.

What has Surprised you Most During the First Few Months of Marriage?

How quickly life can change and when it changes, we have to adjust quickly!

My island where I was residing was destroyed by Hurricane Dorian just 7 weeks after the wedding; an experience I will never forget!

I also learned the importance of loving each other. Even when it’s hard to focus after a great loss, we still have each other. Learn to appreciate your spouse. If it wasn’t for him, I don’t know what I would have done.
