Engagement Story ( from the bride) :"Eric surprised me with a 40th birthday party on April 22, 2011, the day before my birthday, with about 50 guests in his backyard. That Evening he proposed on bended knee after serenading me with a song he had written "It's Whatever," to which I walked down the aisle six months later."
I was so surprised to see Eric singing "It's Whatever," as I walked down the Aisle. I was clueless! "It's Whatever," our engagement now Wedding Song was written for me by the love of my life Eric Dawkins.
One of my biggest fears was from the many stories I've heard from both bride and grooms, that it went by like a flash, they were so caught up in the details and they really didn't get to enjoy themselves...The best advice anyone could have ever given me was to "take it all in, connect"...and I/we did! I Felt present in every moment. I can close me eyes and relive it as if it were yesterday. I saw faces as I walked down the aisle that simply filled me with joy... We had so much fun!!! The presence of God was everywhere!
"OMG!! Everything was picture perfect, from Eric singing and his Dad (Bishop Dawkins) and our Uncle (Elder Warren Campbell) performing the ceremony to the most gorgeous day (it rained Friday and Saturday before the wedding)...the decor was beautiful, the food was delicious, the cake was not only gorgeous, but mouthwatering, DJ Darius set the party off, our friends and family had a ball! If I can say, it was THE BEST wedding I have ever attended! We had so much freakin fun..the presence of God was EVERYWHERE!!! We literally planned our wedding in 3 weeks from start to finish!...nothing but the Grace of God!"- Tish
Luke James our dear friend and lil' brother surprised us by performing "I Want You"
