Engagement story:

We got engaged April 2014. One morning I was heading out for work and I was rushing, my daughter who was 3 at the time came to me and had a shirt on that said will you marry me, and she said “mommy will you marry daddy." I turned around and he was on his knee with a ring and I was elated.

From the Groom:

I left all of the wedding planning to her, I wanted to allow her to fulfill the dreams she had since she was a little girl. She did a great job! The day of the wedding was exciting. She looked gorgeous coming down the aisle.

 

What makes your love special?

We like each other before anything else. Our love is special because we have overcome so many obstacles. During our college years, we both attended different HBCU’s. Lorenzo attended Morehouse college in Atlanta GA and I attended Kentucky State University in Frankfort KY. For the first few years, we had a long distance relationship, and it was hard. But we made it through because our love conquered all.

From the Bride:

Planning the wedding was fun. My mom and me did most of the planning, I also had a coordinator that brought all of our ideas to life. I enjoyed the process for the most part. There were some stressful times but it was a wonderful experience. I had a blast on my wedding day, we were surrounded by so much love it was amazing.

Favorite wedding detail:

My favorite wedding details that I loved was our table centerpieces, I loved the way they looked. They were all hand crafted by Witty Creations and were stunning.

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

Enjoying life and growing old together. I know that is such a cliché answer, but our future is bright and I'm so excited to share all those awesome moments together.

Advice for a Bride and Groom on their wedding day:

Enjoy the moment! And surround yourselves with people who love you.

Congrats to the newlyweds Raven and Lorenzo! We wish you many more years of wedded bliss!
