Keeping Up with KTW!
Mr. and Mrs. Brice (16 years)
CheRita Brice met in high school. He was a senior and she was a freshman. At first CheRita would not give Steven the
time of day! Gradually he started to win her over. Sixteen years later...Steven is still winning her over!!!
Date Married: * 5/23/1997
Residence: * Spencer, OK
qualities did you see in each other that made you want to marry him/her?
Steven – She’s smart, funny, silly, loves to sing, and keeps me
on my toes! I love that.
CheRita – He was the exact opposite of me! I’m loud, he’s quiet,
I joke a lot, he knows when to be serious, I’m moody and he stays pretty even.
It is like he makes me balance.
do you keep the romance going? What are some things that you enjoy doing as a
We have become home-bodies over the years. We had 9 years of marriage
before we had our child, so we had plenty of time to party, stay out late, and
get up at 3am for an Ihop run. Now we just really enjoy each other’s company…a
quiet evening at home, laughing, playing around, and having a blast together
keeps us going.
is your favorite part of marriage?
Having someone who can bring sanity, peace, and calmness to this hectic
world. Someone to talk things out with...Someone who knows you better than
is the most important aspect in a marriage to make it successful?
Really, it is knowing that your normal may not be everyone else’s normal.
In other words, if something is working for you and your mate, keep doing it! Don’t
worry about how others run their home…just worry about you and yours.
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 try to just talk about things. Have discussions before things get out of
hand. Don’t bottle stuff up and hope it gets better, just TALK!
isn't always a cakewalk. What advice can you offer newly engaged couples when
Agree to disagree sometimes and keep
on pushing. You may not always see eye to eye, but there is still love and can
still be respect.
do you see as the strengths of your marriage?
One strength that we see is that we married young. We know it may sound old
fashioned…but we think us having a chance to grow up together helped a lot! We
weren’t set in our ways and then married..trying to fit two separate
personalities together and make it work…instead we grew together. We learned
together. Also we had so much time to get it right before having a child. We
think those years of bonding and growing as a couple before becoming parents
helped a lot!
what do you LOVE about CheRita?
She’s smart, sexy, funny as hell, always sees the bright side of things,
she is a thinker, she always thinks outside of the box, she’s also pretty
cool…she doesn’t trip about a lot of stuff other friends say their wives trip
over. Like, she doesn’t care that I have old school cars I love working on in
my free time or that I hang out with the guys in my man cave. She is pretty
what do you LOVE about Steven?
He is the perfect man…he’s very smart, works hard, knows how to take care
of his family and he keeps me sane. I am sooooo moody, he knows how to calm me
down and keep me from getting too wound up! I love that he understands how I
am…and loves me anyway!
advice would you give newlyweds?
Be open and honest with each other…even if it hurts. Don’t keep things from
your mate. Discuss and have a plan for finances, having children, where to
live, how to divide the holidays with in-laws...EVERYTHING needs to be talked
about. If there are no surprises, then all will be well!
ANTIPASTO: (“before the meal”) traditional first course of
a formal Italian meal. Unlike hors d’oeuvres, antipasto is served at the table
and traditionally consists of cured meats, marinated vegetables and cheeses.
BUFFET: Casual way to serve a large group of guests; a
variety of dishes displayed on tables that guests can pick and choose from.
Typically doesn’t work for venues with numerous small rooms. FAMILY STYLE: Platters of food are placed at each table.
Wedding guests help themselves and pass the food around to one another. FRENCH SERVICE: This individualized and highly skilled type
of food service is not very common in the U.S. Rather than being plated in the
kitchen, white-gloved waiters prepare food table side from a single large dish
or platter held by another waiter. Each guest is served individually. HORS D’ OEUVRES: (“outside the work” in French). Appetizer
typically served before a meal; food that precedes the mai…
SheQueita and Shedrack,
I wish you two nothing but blessings and happiness for the rest of your lives! Thank you for allowing Kiss and Tell Weddings to plan, coordinate, and execute one of the best days of your lives. Stay kind, keep God first, and love each other always!!!
Wedding Consultant This type of
planner is best known for providing consultations and advice. If you have a
couple of issues or questions, such as finding a venue or wondering what you
should ask your florist...then an hourly wedding consultant is for you!
Your consultant can meet with you as much
as you need them to. They can assist you from the day after your engagement
until the day of your wedding. Keep in mind that they are there to consult and
give advice; they are NOT there to
plan your wedding (unless you hire them for planning services). *Full Service Wedding
Planner Just as the title suggests, a full-service planner does it
all! From managing the guest list and RSVPs to being there on your wedding
day to make sure it all happens as planned! Contrary to what many believe, a
full-service wedding planner is part of your wedding budget, not an additional
expense! *Day-of Wedding
you want to oversee the details of your wedding but would like a
professional to be aro…
