Rodney and I met during 4th and 5th grade. Throughout 5th grade, word got around that we both had a crush on one another, after flirting back and forth we decided we should be “boyfriend and girlfriend.” At that age, being boyfriend and girlfriend didn’t really mean much. Unfortunately, after 5th grade ended, Rodney’s parents moved him to a different school which ultimately meant we lost contact.
It was the summer after graduation in 2009 when I noticed we were both going to be attending Wayne State University. He recalls the story like this: “I had been walking through the student center when I caught a glimpse of her. I immediately felt butterflies as the moment I had been waiting on for so long finally was before me. I felt the anxiety of the moment weighing down on me like there was suddenly a cinder-block in my book bag. I was beginning to hesitate when it just so happen that she knew the girl I was sitting with. Suddenly I built up the courage to ask if she remembered me. She looked at me for a moment then to my amazement she said my name with such excitement and we embraced each other.” December 14th 2013 we were both graduating from college and couldn’t wait to walk across the stage that night. Before the ceremony started Rodney disappeared saying he needed to use the restroom. Still oblivious to what was going on, the next thing I knew I was being called on stage. A video began to play and I slowly began to realize what was happening. The entire moment was captured and has been placed on YouTube and the Detroit Free Press.

For our wedding we are most excited about sharing this special moment with our family and friends. Second on our list would be our ceremony/reception venue, and the food. Overall, we can’t wait to spend that entire day in a “Royal Romantic Bliss.” We are having many family members join us from all over the world and we’re beyond excited to see them and dance the night away on the Infinity.
