Word of advice for the newly engaged on preparation for their wedding day: My wordsÂ of advice for newly engaged couples are to do what makes you happy and to stayÂ true to who the both of you are as a couple and to STAY within your budget!!!!! GoingÂ outside of your budget is such a headache.
Most unforgettable moments of your wedding day:Â The most unforgettable momentÂ for me on ourÂ wedding day was when we said our own vows. ThereÂ is justÂ something about saying your own vows that make it that much more meaningful.
Wedding Details: Share with us the setup â€“ We got married at the FantaSea Yacht clubÂ in Marina del Rey CA. on the Regent Sea Yacht and had the reception at the Yacht club.Â We love the beach and went with a beach theme.

How did you meet? Aâ€™Ramond and I both went to San Diego State University for ourÂ undergraduate degrees, while attending school he joined a fraternity and I joinedÂ the sister sorority. The way we began dating was very middle school. I had one of myÂ sorority sisters tell him that I liked him, and to see if he like we me too. Aâ€™RamondÂ texted me the same day she told him and we havenâ€™t stopped texting since.
Describe your hairstyle on your wedding day: I decided to go with an updo. I wantedÂ a fro hawk style without actually doing one. So I decided to twist up my hair that wouldÂ usually hang loose and pin it up. I used starfish bobby pins to go along with the beachÂ theme.
Where did you get the style idea? I got the style idea from pinterest. I just combined aÂ couple of styles to make one that I really liked.
What style would you rock to renew your vows? A super defined twistout.
How long have you been natural? I have been natural for four years.
Hair Care Regimen? I use Oyin handmade and Shea moisture products and usuallyÂ only wear protective styles. I cowash once a week with Shea Moisture condition andÂ shampoo once a month.
