"I love sharing fun times and building memories with him and our kids."


Couple's Name: Charles & Penni 

How long have you known each other? 19 years


Penni, how did you meet?

"I was an incoming freshman at East Central University. He was  a sophomore and on the leadership team. They divided the incoming freshmen into " families". Luckily, Charles was a leader in my "family". Our first 'family get together' was at Mazzio's. Charles sat by me. A few weeks later he caught me in the BSU and asked me out on date. He took me to Bandanas in Ada. After eating and unbeknownst to me, stomping all over his boots during dinner, we went to Bible study. We began to hang out and eventually started dating."

Date Married: *July 15, 2000

v What qualities did you see in this person that made you want to marry him/her? 

Charles was attractive, attentive to me, fun to be with, outgoing, and he made me feel important and special.


v How do you keep the romance going? What are some things that you enjoy doing as a couple? 

We like to spend time together. So we enjoy trips out of town and date nights.


v What is your favorite part of marriage? 

Always having someone to talk with and do things with.


v What is the most important aspect in a marriage to make it successful?

Sharing the same moral, spiritual, and biblical values.


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? 

Lots of prayer and trust in God to help us through the rough patches.


v Marriage isn't always a cakewalk. What advice can you offer newly engaged couples when disagreements occur? 

Don't say mean words in anger. Words aren't easily forgotten. Try to talk things through. A soft answer turns away wrath. 


v Charles, what do you LOVE about Penni?
    
     I love her Christian stance on life...her smile...her compassionate heart, her mama streak...her fun side...those gorgeous eyes...and of course her sweet personality.


v Penni, what do you LOVE about Charles? 

His kindness, he's dependable, he does nice things for me, and most importantly, I love sharing fun times and building memories with him and our kids.


v What advice would you give newlyweds?

Do not let people come between you (in-laws, outlaws, kids...) and don't put others (specifically kids) above your spouse. 


v What song best describes your marriage?

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

Food Terms You NEED to Know!

FAMILY STYLE: Platters of food are placed at each table. Wedding guests help themselves and pass the food around to one another.

Each guest is served individually. HORS D’ OEUVRES : (“outside the work” in French). Appetizer typically served befo
