Married on November 22, 2014 at Mayslake Peabody Estate in Oak Brook, IL
Photos done by Foto-Mack Media ( is our website that explains how we met and our engagement 2 years ago…we met online by accident!

Our colors were plum and charcoal grey. We got engaged on Thanksgiving 2012 and once we finally decided on a venue a year later, the only dates available were November 22nd and December 22nd. As God would have it, we picked November 22nd, which we later realized was the same date we got engaged! I had 1 maid of honor/best man and 2 bridesmaids/2 groomsmen. We called our wedding The Ebony Gatsby because it was in a 1920’s tudor mansion. We wanted it to be rustic, elegant and chic with a home-y feel. The venue met all our needed.

For my hair, I had Senegalese twist done long and pinned up. I knew I wanted to wear a natural style because that’s me! I wanted something different. I’ve been natural for three years and haven’t looked back to the creamy crack since! I received so many compliments on my hair and mermaid couture dress from Jasmine’s Galleria in Lombard, IL.
We got ready at Le Meridian Hotel in Oak Brook, IL.
