Fun facts

The bride and groom met on a blind date and were introduced by one of the bride's Morehouse brothers. The night they met, the groom's car was broken into, but he played it cool.  They both did, actually!  How else could they react on a first date? 

When the bride was studying for the bar exam, the groom would often pick her up after late-night studying from George Washington's campus and cook for her.  That meant the world to the bride; he's always been one of the many reasons that has kept the bride going!  He still is. 

The couple got engaged on the evening of Barack Obama's first inauguration in 2009.
