They say the best relationships start off as friendships. And in the case Terianna and Joel this is very much the case, they were long time friends before they embarked on a relationship. The two love birds married at their Kingdom Hall and held their reception at the Metro Points Hotel. See all their pics below and inspired!
From the Photographer:
Terianna and Joel have been friends for 7 years. They are in the same congregation , so they would see each other every Tuesday for Bible study and on Sunday. They also have many mutual friends. Although there were many who predicted they would end up together, neither one of them saw it coming. They were both young and enjoying the single life. As they got older, Joel and Terianna stayed close. As time passed they became best friends. That great friendship turned into a great romance after Terianna told Joel she liked him, lol. He thought he was in the “‘friend zone” for life and didn’t know how to find his way out! They are a pretty simple and laid back couple. One of their favorite things to do together is to make spiked fruit smoothies and watch episodes of Drug Inc. Terianna was so excited about their wedding day. The have tons of friends and family and everyone wass soooo happy and ready to celebrate as evidence by the way the dance floored was jam packed the entire evening. Prior to the wedding, Teriana said Joel does not dance, but he proved her wrong during the reception. Joel had several surprises for Teriana during their wedding day, one was dancing and the other was a special poem that he’d written that moved her to tears. Joel and Terianna’s 2-part reception allowed their large group of friends to be able to join them for desserts and dancing later into the evening. The couple now resides in Maryland, right outside of Washington, DC.”
