My fiancÃ© asked me to take holiday pictures for Christmas in November. November has been hard for me since 2006. My mother passed away 2 days shy of her birthday so my spirit is never quite right. I agreed to the pictures because I know how hard Frankie works to lift my spirit in November. Pictures are my favorite thing so if anything would make me feel better it would be that. Besides we had never taken professional pictures before because I just wasn’t necessary to me.
Frankieâ€™s plan for the date he wanted to take pictures worked out perfectly because we were so busy the month of November. He proposed to me on November 16, 2014. He told me he wanted to give me a good memory between the two hard days for me. I was caught off guard and the photographer captured it all so I will always have a reminder of my perfect proposal.

When did you and your fiancÃ©e meet? Frankie and I met December 9, 2011 at a probate. He approached me with one of his frat brothers asking to touch my hair. I said yes then proceeded to blow him off after he asked me for my number. He was persistent and I told him I would think about it after the party. He said ok and we went our separate ways. He caught me leaving the party asking if I had forgotten about him. I had but I stuck around to talk to him. My friends were ready to go but I couldnâ€™t blow him off again. He was different than any que I had ever met and seemed genuine. We did not speak again until December 11 and weâ€™ve been inseparable ever since then.
How will you wear your hair on your wedding day? I will wear my hair pushed up with loose curls hanging forward. My veil will be pinned at the top. Â If my hair has not grown back to the length that I want I will have heatless hair added to achieve the look that I want.
How has Natural Hair Bride influenced your styling decision? Natural Hair Bride has been my inspiration all along. My fianceâ€™s only request is that I wear my hair natural during the wedding. Seeing all of the different brides do different things with their hair gives me so much hope. I even cut my hair into a cropped cut for our engagement pics because a bride that I saw on NHB. I figured Itâ€™ll grow back in a year. Natural Hair Bride is so influential because it send the message that you can still be you as a bride!
