Jeromia and Ricky met at Comcast, where they both worked in 2003. The two co-workers turned soulmates, celebrated their union with a destination wedding at Gran Melia Resort in Puerto Rico. "As a little girl I always said I wanted to get married on the beach, with no shoes.  I got my wish, and I couldn’t be more thankful," said Jeromia.

From the Bride:

Planning the wedding was not as bad as I thought it would be.  Especially, with it being a destination wedding.  The staff at the Gran Melia was so helpful, and they were able to work with all of my requirements. They made the planning bearable. The day of the wedding I was not nervous at all, it felt like a normal day with an event in the evening.  However, coming down the aisle I couldn’t stop crying! I guess the excitement came upon me all at once.

From the Groom:

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

The couples most memorable moment:

Placing his ring on the wrong hand!

 

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

Extending our family.  I have a son from a previous relationship that he has always treated as his own.

Advice for a Bride and Groom on their wedding day:

Enjoy the moment! All the little details really don’t matter in the grand scheme of things.  Nobody know they are missing or not there other than you.

 

Congrats to the newlyweds Jeromia and Ricky! We wish you many more years of wedded bliss!
