When did you and your hus­band meet?
We met 10 years ago at the mall in a shoe store that my now hus­band was work­ing in. I saw him from a dis­tance out­side of the store and a friend dared me to go and and talk to him. I act­ed like I want­ed to buy shoes and kept ask­ing him ques­tions. We flirt­ed back and forth for a while. Final­ly he asked me for my num­ber. He called me that evening and we talked for a while. Lat­er that night he start­ed clean­ing up and acci­den­tal­ly threw my num­ber in the trash. When he real­ized the paper that it was writ­ten on was miss­ing he dug in the trash and found it! And we’ve been togeth­er ever since.

We got mar­ried August 6, 2011, at the A and M Gar­dens in Azle, Texas. It is a gor­geous facil­i­ty that fea­tures large gar­den grounds! It was the per­fect back­drop to our vin­tage styled, pea­cock inspired wed­ding.

How was your big day?
AWESOME! The hap­pi­est day of my life. Mar­ry­ing the love of my life among the peo­ple who love us the most! I wouldn’t change a thing.

How did you wear your hair?
*sigh* There were hair dif­fi­cul­ties. A few bad hair days of tri­al result­ed in my wed­ding day style which is what I describe as a nat­ur­al twist updo that morphs in into a twist out. I also col­ored my hair for a pop of col­or.

What was your process of decid­ing how to style your hair?
Tragedy…trail…and error. We tried sev­er­al styles days before the wed­ding but noth­ing was work­ing right. At the last minute (lit­er­al­ly right before I walked down the aisle) my hair came togeth­er and it was per­fect for the 100 degree heat we were fac­ing in our out­door cer­e­mo­ny.

How did your family/husband/guests receive your hair at the wed­ding?
They loved it! Every­one has been very sup­port­ive of my nat­ur­al hair and my hus­band is nat­ur­al as well. : )

BEAUTIFUL COUPLE, Gor­geous bride. I love the hair hun­ny. CONGRATS


nice dress!


Con­grat­u­la­tions on your nup­tials. A beau­ti­ful bride indeed!


Girl you were the most gor­geous bride!!

Love the hair and col­or, dress and your red lip!





Love­ly the pic­tures. I real­ly like the wed­ding venue.


Beau­ti­ful! May God bless your beau­ti­ful union!


Amaz­ing pic­tures. I love the col­ors of the bridal par­ty. Very chic, and sophis­ti­cat­ed. You look stun­ning! Is your dress designed by Monique Lhuil­li­er? I tried on one of her dress­es but decid­ed on a dif­fer­ent design­er. If I could have had a day two of my wed­ding I would def­i­nite­ly be wear­ing Monique Lhuil­li­er, lol! Con­grat­u­la­tions!


What a gor­geous bride and beau­ti­ful wed­ding. Every­thing was stun­ning. I am dying over her dress though! Is there any way we can find out the specs on it?


Wow you are gor­geous, and all of the pic­tures came out gor­geous. Love the hair­style that you chose it real­ly fit your face. The hub­by did good on the wed­ding ring that’s real nice :).


ETA: Oh I just noticed while look­ing that your hub­by has nat­u­ral­ly curly hair as well. Ahh­hh so I def­i­nite­ly know that since both of you have nat­ur­al hair, that the kids will as well. Such a beau­ti­ful cou­ple con­grats on the wed­ding.


Very pret­ty! Con­grats!


She looks gor­geous and she is wear­ing my dream dress. Le sigh. One day…


She looked sim­ply stun­ning.


Absolute­ly gor­geous! (… now onto Essence for today’s Bridal Bliss)*Wedding obsessed*
