Wallace Wedding LOVE STORY WEDDING PARTY RECEPTION VENDORS


OUR LOVE STORY Preston & Shamatie met in an elevator of a commercial building in Corporate Bahamas where we were both working at the time. Preston described it as “his heart skipped a beat”. Weeks later he built up the courage to take me on a lunch date at a popular Greek restaurant. Since that very moment we have been inseparable. In the downtown area folks would greet us as “Lovebirds”. In our daily travels and commutes people knew when they saw one-the other was not far behind. “Lovebirds” soon became a popular nickname that people delighted in calling us! Later I told Preston, hypothetically of course…. if we ever had to be birds in this lifetime… my selection was “The Peacock’, hence our wedding theme! Preston quickly clarified that “WE” could not be peacocks since this was the term used to describe the male species. He further explained that they are referred to as Peafowls, as he was thrilled to enlighten me on the peacock being a magnificent male creature. One with its beautiful and colorful iridescent tail that is used for mating rituals and courtship display. Unfortunately, unlike a typical male that is often overlooked in society. Preston much like the peacock prides himself as his personality transforms to “Puzzle” the artist on

stage. Similarly using his energetic musical talents, he sang his way into my heart. During our ‘courting ritual’ Preston and I have always been in search of that “right partner” that is until we finally met. A Soulmate is described as someone who is aligned with your soul and is sent to challenge, awaken and stir different parts of you in order for your soul to transcend to a higher level of consciousness and awareness. Once the lesson has been learnt, physical separation usually occurs. However, a Life Partner is a companion, a friend, a stable and secure individual that you can lean on, trust and depend on to help you through life. There is a mutual feeling of love and respect and you are both in sync with each other’s needs and wants. After dating we realized that our individual lives fit together like a mysterious puzzle designed by Almighty God. Our pastimes include island hopping, traveling and running marathons. But, our deep passion for God, music and sharing scriptures has been the glue that strengthens our bond and will sustain us through the years. We are a dynamic duo and we remain hopeful and look forward to growing old together and being more in love tomorrow than we are today!

DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMEN BURTON W. BEST MAN My first cousin and my Big Brother.
