Mr. and Mrs. Allen (12 years)


A Love Connection Like No Other

***************************************************
Patrice and Anthony Allen met while serving our country in the Army. They had an instant connection! The connection was so strong that within 6 months of meeting each other they were married. They said "I Do" on October 24, 2001.

State/Country of Residence: Oklahoma

v Patrice, what qualities did you see in Anthony that made you want to marry him?  His sense of humor.

 

v How do you keep the romance going? What are some things that you enjoy doing as a couple?  We never stopped dating after we got married.  We have date night faithfully and do a lot of traveling together.

 

v What is your favorite part of marriage?  That we laugh together.

 

v What is the most important aspect in a marriage to make it successful? Never assume an issue is solved because no one is talking about it.  Always seek to solve the problems and get closure.

 

v Life often throws many curveballs, and those that make it through those tough times stay together. How have you dealt with stressful times that arise?  We learned early in our marriage not to try to “fix” what the other person may be going through, but to listen!

 

v Marriage isn't always a cakewalk. What advice can you offer newly engaged couples when disagreements occur?  Listen to what the person is saying.  Just because you’re talking about dishes, does not necessarily mean it’s about dishes.  Don’t be afraid to ask the hard questions.

 

v What do you see as the strengths of your marriage? We accept one another for where we are and don’t try to change one another.

 

v Anthony, what do you LOVE about Patrice? I love Patrice’s personality.  She’s strong enough to lead, but vulnerable enough to cry on my shoulder.

 

v Patrice, what do you LOVE about Anthony?  Because I did not have a father growing up, it’s a blessing to see Anthony with our children and how he loves them.

 

v What advice would you give newlyweds?  Never stop talking, keep dating, and stay uncomfortable (meaning don’t sleep on the real issues).

 

v What song best describes your marriage? ♫♫All of Me by John Legend

Ashton Loves Kenyetta

"My heart stops when you look at me."

Ashton and Kenyetta were married on September 29, 2018 amongst family and friends. My favorite part of the ceremony was when Ashton and Kenyetta said their vows to their children, sweetly professing their unconditional love to them. The love was definitely felt throughout the church. The Bride chose rose and gold for her reception colors and they turned out beautifully.

Class of 2018!

Congratulations to the class of 2018! I had the honor of setting up a graduation dinner for my god-daughter, Madisen, who also happens to be one of the valedictorians of her class.   Graduation day brings a roller coaster of emotions for the graduates and their families. It’s a time of celebration, achievement, anxiety, and fear of the unknown.

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!

OMG!! YOU'RE GETTING MARRIED!!!!!




Congratulations on your engagement!! Now regain your composure and call your parents. Tell them the good news first. Then send a mass text to all of your family and friends!! The 'proper' way would be to hold an engagement party and formally announce your engagement, but let's face it...technology has changed all of the rules! So here's an idea....tell your friends and THEN have an engagement party and 'formally' announce your engagement!!

I highly recommend hiring a wedding planner (hint...hint) to help you with the logistics (date, location, theme, budget, style, etc.) of your wedding.

As your Bridal consultant I will guide you through every minor and major detail of your wedding day. Once you, your fiancé, and I have discussed the logistics of your wedding, both of you can sit back and relax knowing that your wedding day will be in the hands of a professional. 
On the day of your wedding, I will get you and your future spou…
