Monique and Damione – 7/9/16- Brooklyn Park Community Center
Monique and Damione were married on their six year anniversary at the Brooklyn Park Community Center. This day was special not only because of their anniversary, but it was also Monique’s daughter’s birthday. They met at a dinner party hosted by friends, and during one of the toasts, I found out this was a long time coming plan to set them up. They sat next to each other at dinner, and chatted through their meals of lobster and steak, then continued their conversation after dinner at the Red Dragon in Minneapolis. After the bar shut down, they sat in Monique’s car and talked until sunrise. There was an obvious connection!
Their wedding party consisted of family, their children, and the friends that had brought them together. Everyone gathered at the community center for their beautiful ceremony. Damione’s mother started the ceremony off with a beautiful song and prayer, it was enchanting. A minister said their vows, and they repeated them back by putting a ring on each other’s finger. They sealed it with a kiss, and walked back down the isle toward their families and friends.
The party continued inside with a fabulous dinner and some of the most meaningful toasts I’ve ever heard. All of their children took a moment to speak about their relationship. Several of Monique’s children expressed how protective they were at first of Monique when they started dating, but after getting to know Damione and discovering how sweet and wonderful he was, they couldn’t be happier for the two of them and their families officially joining together.
After toasts, Monique and Damione cut a small cake and invited their guests to enjoy cupcakes. These cupcakes must have been amazing, because I literally turned around to change my battery and all a few vanilla were gone.
It was an incredibly special day, not just because two people were married, but two people were joining together with their children, families and loved ones for a lifetime. Congratulations Monique and Damione!
