About Us

Our Story

Kenneth's Version:

Stunned at first site, but on separate albeit parallel paths in life. Eventually, finally, "At Last", those paths intertwined, two Best Friends took a loving leap of faith, and here we are.

Maria's Version:

We've been friends for many years...sharing accomplishments, fears, joys, secrets, hopes, disappointments and dreams. He is my BEST FRIEND.

About Us

The Groom

I was born and raised in San Diego, California, the only child of Kenneth Sr. a Police Officer, and Doretha, a Social Worker.

Artistic and Creative from the start, I took music lessons, and attended the San Diego School of Creative and Performing Arts learning to play several instruments with Piano being my first love. To this very day, Music is still my passion...... After Maria of course....

I spent 6 years in the Army (Hoo-Ahh) in the Intelligence, and Communications fields, and I have two adult children; A Son, Kenneth III and a Daughter, Quori.

I've lived all over the country, traveled and worked abroad, and met Maria while I was a training instructor. She was as dazzling then as she is now, and made an impression on me that would last a lifetime.

Now, after many years of friendship, we are poised to share the remainders of our natural lives together.

About Us

The Bride

I was born in a small town in the South. At age 9, my family moved to the beautiful, COLD state of Michigan. My father, James, was a carpenter/handyman who could fix just about anything and my mother, Minnie, is retired but still loves to care for her Grands.

I am the baby girl and middle child of seven children..God Bless you Mom. I attended several universities and received my most recent degree from George Mason University in VA.

I love shopping and chocolate, especially warm chocolate chip cookies!!!!! I retired from the US Air Force and now spend the majority of my time ensuring Kenneth takes care of himself. My next goal is to begin my PhD program (once I decide which program). In my free time, I enjoy traveling abroad, watching nature shows, and learning new things.

I have found my TRUE LOVE!! I NEVER imagined I could love anyone or anything as much as I love Kenneth. God designed him....just for ME!!!
