How did you meet?

In January 2012 at the bride’s cousin wedding in New York

2 1/2 years

How did he propose?

Flew in and surprised the bride at Red Prime Steakhouse in Downtown Oklahoma City when she thought she was having a girls night out with her sister Jasmine

When did you know he was the one?

When I seen the way he interacted with his grandmother and mother in person.. I’m very family orientated and he treated them like queens.

What is the cutest thing he has done for you without you asking?

He always buys me little stuff I might need that I couldn’t get at the moment because stuff would come up. For instance, when I needed some uggs for wintertime, or needed a new purse but didn’t have the money at the time. It was small gestures that always got me.

What is something you love about him that has completely changed your life?

He/we did things old fashioned. It made me appreciate his love for me more than ever. We waited until after marriage to have sex.

The vows and the best man dropped the grooms ring on the ground when it was completely quiet and it made a loud “ding” noise. The whole crowd busted out in laughter.
