Ceremony and Reception will both be here
Ceremony Outdoors and reception indoors.
We recently moved to Atlanta from DC due to his job offering and me going to school to get my doctorate. One night it was raining and we were on the floor watching all of the 90's throwback movies and listening to throwback songs , reminiscing on our childhood , laughing and running around our condo like little kids , playing ding dong ditch. We then decided to play charades and there he was on one knee . I started to laugh at first but then I realized he was for real and I began to cry.
The mecca aka Howard aka the elite HBCU aka the black ivy league (historically black college/ university) is where it all started. I was a city girl from the city that never sleeps and he was a deep south boy from New Orleans. I was a psychology major and on the bowling team (yes the bowling team , lol anything to get a scholarship ) and he was a engineer major and on the football team and ran track. We officially met at freshmen orientation but I paid him no mind . I would see him at parties and see him do his thing on the football field but never spoke. Then one night in the library where I was studying in the library , he came walked up to my table and asked " Is this seat taken " I of course said no not really paying attention to who it was . He then nudged me asking for a pen because his ran out of ink. I looked at him and low and behold I see this really beautiful chocolate , broad shouldered man with dimples and a really nice smile. He then introduced himself as Justin. From there he walked me to my dorm. We began being best friends , telling each other secrets , giving dating advice , and being their for each other whenever times were hard. We didn't start officially dating until his first year of graduate school.
