After The Aisle

Hi everyone! I am Marquita and I'm excited to be apart of the Black Bride After the Aisle family as a new blogger. As a youngster, I always enjoyed writing. Although I did not pursue it as a major in college, the love for it never left. In 2013, I decided to start a blog as a way to express myself creatively and it has been a labor of love every since. I began in the fashion niche, and later decided to transition to lifestyle, which is definitely my sweet spot. Meet Marquita is where I talk about travel, style, beauty, and lifestyle, among other things. I love to write as a way to get my creative juices flowing, but it's all in vain if what I'm doing has no purpose or goal. With each post I publish, my hope is to inspire women to manifest their best in life, while making an impact. Whether it's through an article about preparing for motherhood, fashion or how to pick the perfect wedding venue, my aim is to offer value to everyone who finds his or her way to my little corner of the Internet.

As a writer for After the Aisle, my purpose is the same. I can't wait to write about all things love and life after the "I do's".  I'm fairly new to married life, as my husband and I will celebrate three years of marriage this upcoming September. We will soon embark on the next part of our journey in a few months as we learn to tackle parenthood. I'm excited to discuss these things and more as it relates to love and life After the Aisle.

I'm a proud two-time graduate of the greatest HBCU on earth, North Carolina A&T State University. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, shopping, working on my blog and participating in activities with my sorority, Delta Sigma Theta.
