When did you and your hus­band meet?
S:
My hus­band and I met in the DMV area when I was vis­it­ing my col­lege room­mate. She and my hus­band grew up togeth­er. My room­mate had a din­ner for all of her friends after church and invit­ed him to join us. I remem­ber him being the only guy who asked my room­mate what he could bring to the din­ner. Now, this makes per­fect sense as to why he asked because he is ful­ly in love with food and cook­ing! Some­thing that I ben­e­fit from dai­ly :D

We all hung out that evening after the din­ner and we got to talk­ing a bit. Both he and I thought noth­ing of this exchange. The next day my room­mate, my now hus­band, and I were all sup­posed to go out. How­ev­er my room­mate got sum­moned home. She encour­aged me to still go out with him despite my hes­i­ta­tion. She promised me she wasn’t try­ing to set me up and told me he was safe to be around. So with my con­tin­ued hes­i­ta­tion I went out with him, alone. He picked me up and we had great con­ver­sa­tion.

After going out we exchanged con­tact infor­ma­tion and I hon­est­ly didn’t believe that we would remain in con­tact. I left the DMV the next day and told him I’d give him a buzz when I returned home. I called him after return­ing home and we talked on the phone for 3 hours. This became quite a habit and our long dis­tance rela­tion­ship began a few months lat­er. We were long dis­tance for 4.5 of the 6.5 years that we dat­ed. This wasn’t an easy task, but well worth it.

When did you get mar­ried?
S:
We were mar­ried in Michi­gan in June of 2010.

How was your big day?
S:
We had so much fun on our wed­ding day. All of the mem­bers of our bridal par­ty and wed­ding guests talk about how much fun they had and how relaxed the day was. My hus­band and I talk about the week­end quite often. We knew that we wouldn’t have felt that way with­out the help of my sister’s event plan­ning com­pa­ny :)

How did you wear your hair?
S:
My locs were curled with pin curls in the front. This style real­ly worked well with my bird­cage veil.

What was your process of decid­ing how to style you hair?
S:
My wed­ding had a vin­tage the­me so I tried to find styles that incor­po­rat­ed this. I want­ed some­thing that still reflect­ed my per­son­al style.

How did your family/husband/guests receive your hair at the wed­ding?
S:
Every­body loved it. My hus­band real­ly loves my locs as do I :) He has always been sup­port­ive of nat­u­ral styles and real­ly likes most of the styles that I’ve done. We both had locs at the time of the wed­ding so guests loved to see the “loc cou­ple” as we were called.

Is there a blog/webpage where we can find you?
S:
Absolute­ly! www.sharlendipity.com. Vis­it any time! I love the feed­back!
