Over the weekend, I was tagged in a wedding video that instantly went viral. That’s not rare as we write about weddings here and people always want me to stay in the know. What’s rare is that this wedding was a surprise to the bride that’s right, her groom to be planned a whole wedding with her close family friends and she didn’t even know. What makes this even more swoon-worthy is that he had just proposed to her earlier that day and she tearfully accepted his proposal! He then told her that the day was all about servitude and that she had to agree to go along with the plans of the day.

As I watched the video in amazement I realized that I follow the bride, Sherrell @sherrellthetrainer on Instagram. She’s an advocate for fitness at any size and would sometimes post cute videos with her then boyfriend, Alfred @alfredthemc. The love was clear and visibly seen and now these two are known as the Duncan’s. I’ve seen so many different comments from, “This is is so wonderful!” to “But why didn’t he include her in anything?” Whether a surprise is for you or not it is evident that HE knew what was for his bride and he rolled with it. This is the kind of love that CBB is here for and we’ll always be here for to shine the light on. Who knew a date day would turn into a wedding filled with love and such raw emotion? Sherrell woke up his girlfriend, became his fiancée by noon and went to bed his wife. These are the kind of images we need to see because not only is love real, but black love is undeniably real.
