HOW DID YOU MEET:

We met through Bumble, an app in which the ladies make the first move. Despite the fact that neither of us drink, our first date was a “happy hour” on a super rainy Friday the 13th. We ordered an elaborate pickle plate and ignored it for hours while we got lost in each others eyes!

Over the course of our relationship, we bonded over dessert (our alternative to alcohol) and often spent weekends in search of the best cake in city. We got engaged on our 1 year anniversary at our favorite cake shop (Deep Sea Sugar & Salt) and in keeping with the Bumble/Badass theme, I was the one who proposed to Donte and he said it was one of the best days of his life.

WEDDING STYLE:  Pandemic Chic

THE WEDDING DAY:

We had a more formal (but still small) wedding planned for our anniversary this year, but the pandemic hit and it was becoming increasingly obvious that we were not going to be able to stick to the plan. We thought about postponing all together, but it was important to us that we get married on our anniversary.

Our officiant said she was up for masking up and meeting us in the park with our 2 good friends who served as witnesses. I ordered a bouquet from the grocery store florist, who said she didn’t know what she’d have in stock (pandemic and all), but that she’d make me something beautiful no matter what. We chose to forgo our fancy wedding attire (I had a GORGEOUS Badgley Mischka dress originally planned and Donte had a custom suit ordered that was stuck somewhere in Asia), and we just pulled together what we had in our closets.

We broadcasted our wedding on Zoom for our family and close friends and the whole thing start to finish with pics was about 40 minutes. The pandemic helped us to realize what’s truly important, and we are happy enough with just being married that we don’t feel we need to have another wedding at a later date. It was good enough for us.
