Wedding date? March 16, 2012


How did you Meet?
The wife and I originally met through a mutual party. She used to do a little modeling back in the day and I was friends with her agent. She stopped by her agent’s office to say hello. All I could think was, ‘Who is this chocolate goddess?’ We ended up chit-chatting a bit and realized that we had a lot in common.

How long did you all date?
We dated for three years before we got married, but within those three years we had a set of twins.

Can you give me a summary of your special day? (food, drinks, tux anything that really jumped out at you)
Our wedding was fun, casual, and stress free. We exchanged vows in an out of the way section of Piedmont park in Atlanta, GA. The officiant was a friend of the family. We were flanked by fifteen of our closest family and friends, and our then 1-year-old twins acted as our flower girl and ring bearer.

I wore a simple black tuxedo jacket with a shirt, tie, and jeans. She wore a simple white taffeta dress that she found online for 75 bucks. She carried a small bouquet of red gerber daisies – her favorite flower. It was economical, fresh, and completely me and her. Her and her girlfriends called it a “Glam City Funk” themed affair.

The ceremony was followed by a somewhat unconventional reception. We reserved the top floor of a trendy local restaurant, and had a really nice catered affair that would’ve made any trendy Atlanta socialite proud.

 

Favorite part or parts of the wedding? I hate sounding cliche, but the whole day was nice. The weather was perfect, and everything went as planned. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. If I had to pick a favorite part though, I’d say the ceremony itself. Again, the weather was just amazing.


What was one surprising thing you found out about your spouse after you got married? My wife is super laid back and rarely ever overreacts… sometimes to a fault. Every now and then I find myself asking, “Why aren’t you upset about this?!”  I’m sure that’s a trait that would make a lot of married men jealous. lol

If you could change/add/subtract one thing about your wedding day what would it be?
Nothing. Really. It was absolutely perfect.
What is the best piece marriage of advice you have received?
Never get divorced. That’s how you stay married.

What advice would you give other couples? Communicate, communicate, communicate. The things that you leave unsaid can do more damage than you know.
