The weather was perfect: a high in the low 80's, partly cloudy with no chance of rain. What a perfect day to marry the love of your life. These two met as and are still coworkers who do property management at a local apartment complex in downtown Greensboro.
They decided to say their nuptials at White Oak Grove Baptist Church where the two are active members. They say the family that prays together stays together and I think these two would agree.
He decided to wear a classic, tailored gray suit with a white, ribbed tie. Very classy yet very subtle details.
While getting dressed he talked about marriage with his groomsmen. One of them was a younger cousin, college-aged with no wedding plans in sight. He did not yet understand the institute of marriage but wished his older cousin a lifetime of happiness anyway. An uncle or two also dropped in to give some last-minute words of wisdom on staying happy for many, many years to come.
Speaking of attire, LaTosha wore an ivory mermaid-style dress with an average length veil. Her shoes were teal Badgley Mischka's and they added just the right amount of color to her dress! While getting ready for her big day, there was no shortage of laughter both because all of the bridesmaids were great friends and because there was just a slight bit of nervousness. Take a good look at the bridesmaids...you will probably see one of them show up in a future blog post!
The reception was held at Tavo Restaurant and Tavern in the old S.H. Kress & Company building downtown Greensboro. The building itself tells a story of Kress, an old five-and-dime store home of a 1960 civil rights sit-in. The building was originally opened in 1930 during the Great Depression, but on Latosha and Maurice’s wedding day it had been transformed into an elegant reception hall dressed Elizabethan-style with beautifully restored hardwoods. It matched the couple’s attire perfectly.
Here’s to wishing the two a long-lasting lifetime of love and pure bliss.
