Mr. and Mrs. Thomas (34 years)


Our First Date

***********************************************

High school sweethearts, Carolyn and Joseph Thomas met at church, where her dad was the pastor. These sweethearts did not start off that way! In fact they really disliked each other. Their first date happened as a favor to Joseph's best friend. Carolyn's cousin was going on a date with Joseph's friend but she did not want to go without Carolyn. In order to make this date happen, Joseph's friend paid him $10 to take Carolyn to the movies. What started out as favor to a cousin and best friend turned into a heartwarming love story!  The two sealed the deal on June 9, 1979. Thirty-four years later and they are still 'dating'! **The best $10 ever spent!!!!**

Ø What qualities did you see in this person that made you want to marry her? Carolyn: He was tenderhearted and caring.

Joseph: I saw that she would make a good mother.

Ø What is the most important aspect in a marriage to make it successful? Keep God first, know each other, and support each other through all times.

 
Ø 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? Keep an open mind and remember the wedding vows.  We signed a contract but we made a vow to God.  Oh, and Joseph goes fishing. LOL!!


Ø Marriage isn't always a cakewalk. What advice can you offer newly engaged couples when disagreements occur? Fight about the issue at hand.  Don’t fight about the past, the parents or the family.

Ø Joseph, what do you LOVE about Carolyn? Everything!!!
 

Ø Carolyn, what do you LOVE about Joseph? I love his charisma.

Ø What song best describes your marriage?  

Joseph: Never Would Have Made It Without You

Carolyn: Because You Love Me

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…
