Their Engagement Story:
People say they never believe in love at 1st sight. Well, Tonija has changed that theory. She met her heart on a beautiful summer day. She was just starting to like boys at the time. She took one look at Keon and said, “This man will become my husband.” From that day forwarded, she never thought about who she would marry just when she would marry. It wasn’t until a couple of years later that they started dating. He was more than a man to her; he was her friend, the one she could share all her dreams and thoughts with. Tonija could cry on, laugh with, and laugh at. He made her smile when no one could. Their relationship was more than they could have every imagined it to be. As day to day went on and as they got older, Tonija said to Keon at the age of 21 that nothing mattered because she was going to be he’s wife and he looked at her with the strangest face as if she could have been a little off the wall crazy. He never knew that she saw something he didn’t in their relationship. She saw real love; true love, two hearts put together and made into one whole at that time. He never had in his mind that he would be hers and she would be his. Through all troubles and all rocky mountains of testing, they passed and stand to be the best. She, taking life one day at a time and asking God for all his many blessings, she knew that the day will come when Keon would ask her for his hand in marriage and she would say, “Yes.” It was so awkward because, he proposed out of no where. When at the very moment she didn’t expect it, he had the biggest smile on his face and he was more excited than she had ever seen him all the years they had been together. It was as if he had a glow inside of him. Something that was so deep; it was like the love had taken over his body and he could help himself, but oh boy were we both excited! They were so anxious but they just wanted to have are wedding in Vegas, but knew they couldn’t afford it. They also thought about their have families never been there.

What the couple believes is special about their wedding that makes them feel they should win this free sponsorship…
Although all weddings are special, mine is special because of the delight that we have in sharing in our love; our commitment and our seriousness to become as one no matter what. Our dedication to be lawfully devoted to one another and make this day a special day, sharing each others heart with one another, crying when we needed to, knowing that our relationship has been through some tremendous struggles, and have been able to share our story with people. We tell them to know that threw it all you can get there if you believe and make yourself determine to succeed. I’m not going say are years have been perfect ,but what I will say is that we have made it through some tough times and where still standing. We have broken are childhood and immature ways together and have come to say that we want to be as one whole. A lot of young people find themselves saying that they’re in love at such a young age and deciding to get married at 18 which some may be ,but for us to experience good and bad times with one another became a learning and thankful process. We wouldn’t be where we are today if we had not gone through those things and to say we still love each other; no one can break the seal.
