Inspiration

Kiondra and Michael's love story began in 2016 in the most unlikely of places, a training class. Michael gave a speech to Kiondra's incoming training class and she was intrigued by his experience of acting in Hollywood. "This is a dream that is close to my heart so I thought I would approach him and obtain some tips and learn about his experiences. As Michael and I spent more time together we formulated a friendship that lasted." The two tied the knot in an elegant wedding ceremony in Atlanta, Georgia.

Briefly tell us about your wedding experience and how the both of you felt on your big day. Include your most memorable moment.

There are so many moments that I can speak about but at the end of the day Michael expressed his love but was not wanting to have a big wedding and was okay with court house nuptials due to Covid. It would have been a disappointment not to have a traditional wedding so we put our heads together. He said we had to go big or go home.

Our wedding was everything we wanted and more. To plan it during Covid was extremely stressful but the guests were more than willing to wear masks and obtain testing before attending. The big day was like a dream, from the speeches to the mother of the bride catching the bouquet.

Wedding song, explain choice for song:

 "You and I" by John Legend. The lyrics represent how we feel about each other. When we are with a group of people it feels like nobody's there but us

What are you most looking forward to as a married couple?

Keeping God first in all that we do. Having faith in the pure bliss of building together as a couple, find moments of laughter. Lastly, knowing that it will not always be easy but with utilization of communication understanding that we can make it through anything.

Advice for a Bride/Groom on their wedding day:

Not everything will go as planned but overall it will be the best day. Relax! And enjoy your day!


Congratulations to the happy couple! We wish them many years of wedded bliss!
