About Us

The Bride

I am like black licorice - you either love me or hate me! And that's ok. I can be stingy with my love, loyalty and attention but once you get it, you GET IT. The most important things to me are my family, my friends, my babies (I love my friends kids and my godchildren as if there were my own!) and my man. Lord help the person that messes with any of them!

I can't say that I had visions of a dream wedding all my life or thought much about the "day I would walk down the aisle" but I do know that I couldn't have imagined a better way, with a better person or with a better group of people around me as I do.....

I am truly humbled by the outpouring of love and excitment Keenan and I have received.

About Us

The Groom

It's weird for me to write about myself because to know me is to know that I'm an open book. If I think it, I say it. If I said it, I meant it...mark my words like proofreaders.

I will say this about me though, a long time ago I became very secure in who I am and I learned over the years that I needed to be with a woman who allowed me to be me.

I found that person in Nicole.

This has been a long time coming and we all know I took my sweet time but, when you know early on that you ain't going anywhere, there's no need to rush forever. This day is another step towards my happily ever after!

I'm glad everyone will be there to share in our special day.

About Us

Our Story

We met through friends almost a decade ago. And while Keenan was interested right away, Nicole took some convincing that he was the one for her!!

During a housewarming party at a friend's house (thanks Cindy!) in June 2005 Keenan decided to show some interest but didn't get too far! Good thing he is persitant because a few months of asking Nicole out finally paid off and the rest, as they as, is history......

This picture was taken at that party and is the first picture we ever took together....

Our Wedding

Bride's Wedding Party

Stephanie

Maid of Honor - Sister

How two sisters that are so different can be such good friends is a mystery to us, but it works! And while she HATES weddings I couldn't have planned mine without her. She has been AMAZING!

Ijeoma (Ije)

Bridesmaid - High School Friend

Ije, my dear Ije... We didn't exactly meet under the best circumstances (LOL) but what a great friendship we have. I can't believe that we have been friends for over 20 years (!!) but I couldn't imagine life without her. No matter where life takes us, she will always be my family...

Leslie (Lady)

Bridesmaid - High School Friend

Even though Lady was determined to hate every thing about New Jersey when she moved there, Ije and I were still able to make her fall in love with us! LOL... I couldn't even begin to go into the paths that we have taken in life but one thing is for sure - location and distance does nothing to change true friendship....

Erin (EBuggs)

Bridesmaid - College Friend/Roommate

There isn't a whole lot that Erin and I haven't been through together and there are not many people that I can imagine with me as I embark on the next stage of my life. No matter what is going on she always manages to be an amazing wife, mother, sister, daughter and friend. How someone so sweet is friends with me, I will never understand but I'll take it!

Jeanita (JMo)

Bridesmaid - College Friend/Roommate

'96 and forever! No truer words have ever been spoken! How smart Hampton University (HU!) was to put us next door to each other freshman year! Through classes, boyfriends, breakups, husbands, and jobs, Jeanita is and will always be my ride or die friend!

Cindy

Bridesmaid - Post College Friend

Well, thank goodness she kept asking me to lunch all those years ago or I might have missed out on one of the best friendships of my life! They say that you meet all the real friends you will have in college and I'm so glad that turned out not to be true. We have travelled the world together and even though I'm getting married I know there will be many more adventures to come!

Joanita (JoJo)

Bridesmaid - Post College Friend

My 4th friend! LOL. Jojo, is the absoute definition of living life to the fullest! Though I make fun of her for it (only sometimes) I admire her ability to look for and make her own happiness. Even though we didn't start out as the best of friends (that seems to be a theme with me, huh?) I am glad that our friendship continued to grow into what it is today...

Our Wedding

Groom's Wedding Party

Keenan's Groomsmen

I’ve selected these guys as each one represents a different stage and/or role in my life. Below I want to explain why each was chosen in chronological order.

Darril Mathis (Deebo / Alf) - The Formative Years

Groomsman

D is one of my oldest friends from the neighborhood where I grew up, who I still hang out with to this day. Literally over 30 years of friendship but, more importantly, he reminds me of where I’m from, who I am and the place that raised me. Rutland Road…The 90’s…East Flatbush…BROOKLYN

Kenny Depeyster (Nugget) - The High School Years

Groomsman

Kenny wound up being my closest friend from high school. We double dated when we escorted 2 young ladies to the prom together. He’s my daughter’s godfather. We’ve seen each other at our worst and been there for each other’s best throughout our 20 years of friendship.

CP McBee (McBeast / Unky C) - The College Years

Best Man

The guy I consider to be my best friend. My freshman year Babson College roommate. The only person I lived with as long as Nicole. Hands down the funniest person I know. The one person who mystifies people as to how and why we are friends but, the one person who is more like me than anyone I know.

Jeff Meade (Jigga) - The College Years

Groomsman

My other college roommate. My b-ball teammate. My life coach…especially about women! Watching Jeff’s growth over our last years of friendship gives me something to strive for as I feel he embodies what it means in this day and age when it comes to being a husband and father.

Shane Bennett (Hollywood / Mister MIH) - The Club Years

Groomsman

My club promoting business partner. When you saw me out, you either saw Shane first or saw him 2-stepping right behind me. I only wish that I had room to also include my other MIH brothers, Jonevan (Hova) Hornsby and Aquil (Hammer) Stinson in my group of groomsmen but, I had to make sure I at least recognized them here. We are MIHicon. We are MIHventures. Along with these 3 men, we had the city on lock for the better part of 10 years. We Make It Happen.

Toma Acholonu (Lawless) - The Adult Years

Groomsman

Thomas Achy-Looney. I’ll admit it, I don’t like this guy. He gets on my nerves. I don’t like the cut of his jib BUT he is one of the most loyal dudes I know. He’s one of Nicole’s closest friends who became one of mine. The guy who let me know I chose correct when I chose Nicole. And then he named his son after me (inside joke)…so, I guess he’s an alright dude.

Brian Hopkins (B-Hop) - The Adult Years

Groomsman

Not sure anyone else gets how I move and think like Hop “gets it”. Always down for a 2 man impromptu power move to Vegas a couple times a year or a long ass back and forth telling story after story of what the other guy missed the weekend prior, truly wish I met this dude a lot earlier in life.

Aundre Oldacre (Deluxe / Vmix) - The Adult Years

Groomsman

From poker to basketball, from drinking and clubbing to real estate discussions, Dre’s always down for whatever moves are to be made. One of the good dudes that I know and one of a only a small handful of people who can truly lay claim to have actually beat me in a foot race (even though that was years ago and he’s lost ever since…oh and Toma can only win if he cheats, I’m just saying, had to put that in there!)
