It was the summer of 2014, and Krystle was excited to be back in New York City completing her visiting medical student rotation in emergency medicine. Donna, a physician assistant at the local hospital, introduced her to Joshua, a busy emergency medicine intern. Before he walked away, Donna whispered to him, “Make sure to ask her out. I bet you won’t be disappointed.”
After working closely together during the rotation, Krystle and Joshua soon developed a friendship. The following spring, they found out they would be in the same medical residency program, and they reconnected! This time Joshua asked Krystle to lunch, and she gladly accepted. After seeking guidance from God, the two have decided to spend the rest of their lives together. Check out their fairytale wedding, previously featured in the Summer 2022 issue of Black Bride Magazine and captured by Reem Photography.

Joshua: As lovely as the celebration was, my focus has been and continues to be the growth of our love and the strength of our union. The most memorable moment I had was the peace I experienced while standing at the altar with my bride and exchanging our vows while declaring our love.
Krystle: My mom and my husband’s mother prayed over me, and the day turned out better than I could have ever imagined. The most memorable moment was standing across from my husband at the altar, and he whispered to me that I looked beautiful and held my hand.
