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!
May these vows and this marriage be blessed. May it be sweet milk, this marriage, like wine and halvah. May this marriage offer fruit and shade like the date palm. May this marriage be full of laughter, our every day a day in paradise. May this marriage be a sign of compassion, a seal of happiness here and hereafter. May this marriage have a fair face and a good name, an omen as welcome as the moon in a clear blue sky. I am out of words to describe how spirit mingles in this marriage. – Jalalud’din Rumi Maryam and Matt were married on August 9, 2019 at The Olana Mansion.

You have exchanged rings and vows! You are done taking wedding party pictures...now what?! Before you enter the reception hall and dance the night away take a few moments to enjoy being married. After all, this is the moment that you both have been waiting for! Don't worry about your guests, they will be fine without seeing you for another 10 minutes. Take some time to be alone as a couple. Once you enter the reception doors you will be swamped with conversations, hugs, kisses, pictures, toasts, and dancing. Eat!! Sounds crazy but my husband and I did not get to eat at our reception. I remember the wait staff preparing our plates...they handed them to us...we sat at our Sweetheart Table...was about to take a bite...and then guests started talking to us! At the end of the night we realized that we only had a piece of cake (the small piece that you feed each other for the photo op) and a sip of Sprite during the toast. Have your wedding planner prepare small plates for you and your
WEDDING RECEPTION FOOD TERMS (via: www.weddingsforaliving.com ) ANTIPASTO: (“before the meal”) traditional first course of a formal Italian meal.

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 befo
