Christina & Deja gets engaged November 13th 2016 & has a wedding date of July 15th 2018. Here’s their #Brides2Be story.
“Christina & Deja (Stretch & Dej)
Dej surprised Stretch with a birthday party on 11.13.16 where Stretch proposed.. in return Dej had another surprise of her own.. which created a double proposal!
#EdwardsEverlasting will be 07.15.18 in a beautiful venue located in Hazlet, New Jersey. We decided NJ because we wanted to have a medium for guest who are traveling. Besides, Dej fell in LOVE with the venue!
It will be intimate with 100 of our biggest supporter. It has been a journey putting together all of the details. Time has been flying and there is still a few things left to do. We believe the easiest part apart planning a wedding was deciding our wedding party and proposing to them at a formal brunch. The hardest part of planning a wedding has to be selecting a photographer/ videographer. You hear so many horror stories about photos not capturing the moments or not being sent in a timely fashion.. or just horrible photos. We feel the photos are the most important aspect of the wedding and we want to look back at our day with those photos. Although we interviewed 3 wedding planners we opt to not hire one. We do believe we'll have separate bachelorette parties but we left that up to our matron of honors.
Being 2 women planning a wedding has been a test to our testimony. We have encountered so many obstacles but we've overcome them all.
Our best advice to others will beChristina & DejaIGs: @B_eauty_D & @Stretch_Blanco
