Today's real wedding feature is FINALLY on yours truly! :) My hubby and I met the summer of 2001 during an internship in NY. We immediately connected as friends and after the summer was over, we stayed in touch and remained friends over the years. A few years ago we both ended up living in the same area and he became one of my best friends. In the beginning of 2008, our relationship turned from friendship to something more after realizing that just maybe we both were what each other had been "searching" for! All that time we were right under each others nose and didnt even know it! We have been inseperable ever since! What made our union even more special to me is that we committed ourselves to remain celibate until we got married. ALL BY THE GRACE OF GOD!!
In April of 2009, I had my Spring/Summer launch party in DC for my handbags. Immediately following, me and about 15 of my friends went out to Ruth Chris to eat. I thought it was kind of strange they gave us a private room but I didnt think much of it. Long story short...I was blindfolded and when I opened my eyes...Armond was down on one knee! I was totally surprised and filled with joy! Needless to say, I said YES! ;)
We got married on Oct 17, 2009 in my hometown of Petersburg, Va at Gillfield Baptist Church in front of about 210 people. Before entering the reception, we had a video (created by a good friend) played with various childhood pictures as well as pics we have taken during our relationship. When we were announced as Mr & Mrs Mosley...we entered our reception to "Crazy in Love" by Beyonce. Our first dance song was "The Point of It All" by Anthony Hamilton. The father/daughter dance song I chose was "Isnt She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder. The mother/son dance song was "Mama" by Boyz to Men. Of course the bouquet toss song was "Single Ladies" by Beyonce (which has been played at every wedding Ive been to since the song has been out...lol)
All in all, our wedding was everything I dreamed of and more (and on a budget...lol). Everything was perfect! I had the time of my life and most importantly, I married the man I know in my heart God truly made for me ...who could ask for anything more!
You've already seen most of the decor pics from my wedding. Enjoy a few other pics from our big day! :)
