2013, to celebrate their anniversary, they returned to where they had their first date. After dinner, he started talking about their relationship, then the waiter came with the dessert bowl. In it, a white gold and diamond ring sat, glistening in all its glory. She recalled the play by play of the proposal, ?He looked at me and asked, ?Well?? waiting for an answer. I looked at him smiling, from ear to ear, ?What?s the question?? Shocked, he slowly, sweetly and softly said: ?Will you marry me?? I quickly stretched across the table and shouted: ?Yes!?.?

Marks? sisters again came to the rescue, working with the actively involved couple to plan the wedding of their dreams. In no time, everything just fell right into place.

The Wedding

On Saturday, August 9, 2014, with clear blue skies, a scene of pink and red was set. Waiting outside the University of the West Indies Mona Chapel was a nervous yet beautiful bride, while inside stood a confident and eager groom, awaiting his wife-to-be. Marks clutched her father?s arm and her bouquet and proceeded to walk down the aisle to meet the love of her life. Overcome by emotions, tears of joy streamed down her cheeks, the groom got teary-eyed just staring at her beauty.

The wedding was described by both as simply beautiful, and they were both particularly proud of their hand-fastening ceremony. At the end of the ceremony the two were ushered out with Bruno Mars? Marry you.

Their innovative bridal pictures were taken on the lawns of the university, where the bride poised with elegance was rescued in love by her superman. They were accompanied by sidekicks and supporting ladies.

The reception, at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel, seemingly went by in a flash. From toasts and poems, to the regular activities of cake cutting, the couple?s reply, garter/bouquet throwing, they closed off the enchanting night with their first dance as husband and wife.
