Matt and Jessica met in the Game room on Winston-Salem State University’s campus in September of my freshman year in 2005.

When we first met, I was with a High School friend and he was with his friends. It was not a love at first sight connection, but lets just say he was very persistent. We have been together ever since, through all of the ups and downs.

I knew Jessica was The One because she showed me the true meaning of love even through all of my hang-ups over the first couple of years.

I knew he was the one because of how he had grown and continues to grow into the Man of God I knew he could be.

I didn’t see the proposal coming. I thought I was going to deploy to Afghanistan a single woman. I was actually at my boiling point because I felt our relationship was becoming stagnant and we needed to either move to the next level or break-up. We discussed the topic numerous times but he wouldn’t budge. Then the night before I get on the plane, he came to Savannah and surprised me at the door of our hotel room. I was speechless. After a few light jabs, I accepted. He loves getting my pressure up, but I love him.

On our wedding day, I look forward to how beautiful she is going to look coming down the aisle.
