How We Met: Horace and I (Jasmine) actually met at his church one night during a life group session called X-Press. At the beginning, neither of us were looking at each other in a romantic light, but we began to develop a friendship as time went on. One night in particular Horace took the time to express to me how he thought I was beautiful with a beautiful spirit. From there we began paying more attention to one another, and sooner than later he asked to take me on a date and then asked me to be his lady that night. It was truly a moment I will never forget.

The Proposal: Our proposal took place on Morris Avenue near a greenery wall. Horace planned it as if we had a photo shoot for Black Couples Revolution to be featured on their Facebook page. Once we completed the photoshoot for the “special feature,” people literally started popping out from everywhere! I realized all of our family and friends were there to support us during one of the most memorable days of our lives. Horace then got down on one knee and popped the big question. Of course, I said YES! And beautiful confetti was thrown into the air in celebration of our love.

Favorite Moment: Our absolute favorite moment was expressing our sincere vows to one another. It is one thing when a person tells you that he/she loves you, but when they are willing to go over and beyond for you AND express their love for you in front of God and all of your family and friends, it is truly something beautiful. There was not a dry eye in the room during this special moment of the ceremony, and we will cherish the words shared for the rest of our lives.
