Portia and Desmond were married at Valley Green Inn in Philadelphia, Penn. on April 13. They first met while attending Loyola University in New Orleans. “After a couple of years of dating and too many years of distance, we moved in together in Philadelphia where Des was in medical school,” Portia said. “We decided to get married in the City of Love because it is were we got engaged,” she said. “By our favorite mural . . . that reads, ‘If you were here, I’d be home now.'” The bride wore an antique-colored lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with a sideswept loose curls updo and birdcage veil, while Desmond wore a navy blue suit, brown bow tie, and his glasses. Plus, a traditional Hawaiian lei around his collar! Following the outdoor nuptials, guests were asked to type out their well wishes and advice. The tech-savvy tips: “Don’t be shy! You have to punch the letters with some force. (Not an Iphone.)” The reception tables were decorated with mercury glass vases, which were collected over a year before the wedding, and “gorgeous flowers and family pictures and old family relics (like maps and paitnings) completed our country chic-inspired look,” she said. Their first dance song? “We both have a mutual love for Michael Jackson music,” Portia said. “And he put ‘Lady in my Life’ on his first mixtape he made for me during our courtship, so it was a no brainer.” See the full board here.
