I am so grateful to Essence magazine. This publication has been super supportive of my wedding and I can’t find words to express how I feel. I wanted to tell my relationship story because I knew it would benefit someone. So I put my skills as a publicist to use and crafted my real-life experiences regarding my wedding for all to read and submitted it to Essence magazine.
They loved my story, pictures and location. The hubs and I received recognition on three separate occasions. The first highlight was on Essence.com’s Bridal Bliss. The editor told me that our story was the most popular of 2012! On their Facebook page we received more than 10,000 likes, over 700 comments and 600 plus shares in addition to 140 comments on Essence.com. The second honor came with two Bridal Bliss awards. One for MOST BEAUTIFUL BACKDROP and the other for MOST TOUCHING UNION.
Now I am proud to announce that our story was once again spotlighted in Essence. But this time we are in the magazine! If you purchase the February issue you will find us featured in one of the cover stories titled, “You Can Find Love At Any Age” starting on page 80. We are on page 85! And guess what?! Permed to Natural made the article as well. So how cool is that?!
