I gave you Part I of the wedding filled with the beautiful wedding pictures by Derrel Todd. I also told you the why and how we pulled off the surprise wedding we planned in one month. Now its time for the reveal, this is the best part. I’ve got the feels all over again and SO WILL YOU!
We invited our family and friends over to our new home for a Housewarming Party. No big deal, we have been settling into our new home for several months now. Some had been to our house already, but most had not so this was perfect.
My husband and I decided to share a two-minute video to share our big news. I created the video and he selected the music, it was the best two-minute collaboration ever.
Neither one of us had on rings at the party, we didn’t want to give it away.
We waited until a decent amount of our guest had arrived. You know CP time. I was so ready but needed to wait for my brother and sister-in-law to arrive and Babe’s best friend. Then we played this video.
I hear you might need a tissue, I’m just saying. That is just what the people told me as they watched.
We invited our parents over an hour or so before the party to tell them. While this was a surprise I didn’t think it was fair to tell them when we told everyone else. However, we couldn’t tell them too soon for fear of them spilling our tea. Duh, I’m a media correspondent I like to control my narrative. Plus this was our news to share so I wanted it to be on our terms. Our Mom’s were a trip, they were legit in their feelings. I showed them the video of our ceremony and all 400 pictures D. Todd took along with my skirt and LittleCuteLips dress. They totally softened up, by the time the video played for everyone, as you can see they were all soft and mushy in the middle.
Since we told our parents in person I only felt obligated to call my Dad and my Grandmother. Everyone else would find out how they found out and we were okay with that.
The reactions were bigger and more emotional than I expected. Y’all I was not ready. We naturally expect women to be excited, but the men were equally excited and I freaking adore them for that. To see so many people genuinely excited for us was overwhelming. I know folks love us and ride for us but to feel it in such a way was magical. Even the love from those not in attendance was just as strong. Y’all left 500+ comments on my social media channels. We had text messages from friends, family, and co-workers. Yall are our people and we are thankful for you.
Watch the reactions live and in living color.
It was the best-kept secret!
The love was so real!
Squad! We’ve been Boo’s since the 4th grade, and we are 40 now. I attended both of their weddings and they attended my wedding surprise. We growed up now!
Yall know how hard I ride for these too. We’ve been at it all of our life.
We’ve been at this thang since we were in the 6th grade. I’m telling you, get you a squad.
Sissy + Mr. & Mrs. Robinson + Mommy
We are Mr. & Mrs. Robinson because they are Mr. & Mrs. Robinson.
They are also Mr. & Mrs. Robinson aka my brother-in-law + sister-in-law and my niece Kam.
This is a few of a much bigger squad, they are affectionately known as The Street Team. They are Babe’s motorcycle family to include parents, spouses, and siblings of riders. They go hard for us too. We love them, they have been family for almost 10 years. Dope people find, bond, and connect with other dope people.
Shout out to Randy P for capturing these moments for us. We appreciate you.
