A Luxe Black-Tie Affair in Baltimore, MD

On one fateful night in March 2016, the stars aligned for Kristen and Reggie. At the time, Kristen was finishing up her senior year at Georgetown, while Reggie had just arrived in DC after having recently graduated from Florida Agricultural Mechanical University (FAMU). 

Kristen was out with friends that night and what started as a dare from her friend, turned into so much more. As soon as Reggie and Kristen started talking, it was like they were the only two people in the room. They quickly discovered that they both hailed from Jacksonville, FL, and had more in common than they could have imagined. In the years that followed, the two built a life together filled with love, laughter, and countless memories. As they rang in the new year on December 31, 2019, Reggie asked Kristen to spend the rest of her life with him. Get inspired by their gorgeously stunning wedding day, captured by Felicia V.

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

Our wedding experience was definitely a journey. We got engaged right before the pandemic and ended up postponing our wedding to a year later, as it was initially supposed to be in September 2021 in St. Augustine, FL. We decided to get married closer to home in Baltimore, MD so that it would be easier for us to plan locally. It had been a while since our family and friends had gathered together, and it was an amazing feeling to be surrounded by so much love and support. 

Wedding song, explain choice for song: 

“Collide” by EARTHGANG and Tiana Major9 – We chose this song because it is the perfect backdrop for our love story. The lyrics start off with “Everybody’s got opinions on our thing, say we’re flying down a path with no ending.” Certain people in our lives didn’t think we were right for each other, but we didn’t let that interfere with our love for one another. 

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

We are most looking forward to building a life together for our family. We are passionate about creating generational wealth and want to leave a legacy that our kids, our grandkids, and their kids will benefit from. We are also looking forward to traveling the world together and creating memories.


Congratulations to the happy couple!
