become Husband + Wife. Both Caroline and I have had the privilege of getting to know Cecily the past few years and she is such a beautiful person inside and out. It’s been so much fun planning with her and we look forward to sending her down that aisle to marry the love of her life.
Ooh La Love asked our Bride, Cecily:
How did you two meet?
We’re high school sweethearts. I was a sophomore and he was a senior when we started dating. When I was a freshman he shared a drama class with one of my best friends and she heard him talking to his friend about some girl he saw in the quad that he liked and was describing what I was wearing that day. My bff interrupted their convo and told them who I was. We met that week, talked off and on and then he left to go to another school. After about a year i decided to call him and see how he was doing and from there its history
Tell us about your proposal?
We share the same birthday month…. February. And with that along with Valentines Day, we always try to do one big thing versus three separate events, date nights, etc. So last year we decided to go to NY for a week to celebrate all three occasions. Second day into our trip we choose to go spend the afternoon in Central Park. He kept mentioning this specific part of the park that he wanted to see because it was apparently a famous hangout area for Notorious BIG and other rappers back in the day. I know very little of hip hop history so I believed it. Of course it turned out to be a lie. We were walking down The Mall and it was there that he stopped me and proposed with a photographer hiding nearby taking photos of us the entire time. He’s not the type to plan ahead so this was so romantic and pleasing to me…. Especially since he thought of getting a photographer so that our family back home could share in or happiness by seeing the photos.
What are you most looking forward to at your wedding?
Saying “I do”. And then dancing the night away.
Where are you going on your honeymoon?
Moorea and Bora Bora. And we’re sooo looking forward to doing nothing but laying on the beach and getting tanned while enjoying tropical drinks.
