I came across you all on "gayweddingstories" on Instagram and truly admire your story of finding true love! It happens when we least expect it lol. Although I don't know you guys personally, I wish you both a life time of happiness and many blessings on your union!
Jerrell & Orion-- Congratulations! I will you life full of love, peace, happinness, and laughs. I cannot wait to witness and celebrate your big day!
Can't wait to meet my new cousin!! Congratulations little cousin. I am so happy for you.
I can only imagine the anxiety that is building up as the date gets closer. What an amazing feeling it must be to be in the company of someone whose heart beats in sync with yours. I hope and pray that you two spend forever and a day together, to share amazing moments together and eventually trace the wrinkles and count the gray hairs. Congrats guys!
Marriage does not guarantee you will be together forever, it's only paper. It takes love respect, trust, understanding, friendship, and faith in your relationship to make it last.
Congrats Bro, I'm excited for your journey with your new partner, my new brother.
well wishes Mr. Taylor and Mr. Ettienne.
This has to be one of the most beautiful things I've seen in life. Best wishes to a wonderful couple. And a lifetime full of Love, Patience, Growth and Companionship.
Happiness is being with the one you love. Life is Short. Love is not promised. Enjoy both!
Congratulations Jerrell!!! Can't wait to meet you Orion. :)
Can't wait to meet the dude who will always keep you from having to get messy. Love you, Orion and thrilled to be invited to celebrate your day.
“The difference between an ordinary marriage and an extraordinary marriage is in giving just a little ‘extra’ every day, as often as possible, for as long as we both shall live.” Congrats again to the both of you! May God bless your union

It all happened one chilly night at the Musée du Louvre (Louvre museum) in Paris. I [Orion] always dreamed of visiting Paris due to my love for the French language, food and culture. Jerrell made this dream come true when he told me back in January that he had planned a trip to Paris for the two of us.
I learned that Jerrell had been infatuated by art history so I thought why not ask him to marry me in a place that we both dreamed about? We had an amazing time viewing the beautiful architecture in Paris as well as the exhibited objects at the louvre. For our final night in Paris, I requested that we return to the Louvre to capture a night view. I remember walking up to a gentleman selling souvenirs and promised him that I would buy a small Eiffel tower if he took a photo of me asking the man of my dreams to marry me.....hey, I had to put my French speaking skills to good use :)
One of the best moments in my life had to be looking into his eyes while he said 'Oh my God Oh my God YES!'
Ok Ok so here’s my version on how we met. We met at the club in Virginia beach lol...just kidding
It was a cool autumn day in Connecticut and for some reason I was walking from class and seen that it was a man with a flat tire with his lights blinking. Being the great guy I am, I asked if he knew how to change a flat tire and he said no so I got up and changed it for him.
I had gotten a Flat tire on my way home from work and this random dude came out of no where and asked me if I needed help. For a second I imagined myself in a totally different world. Since I really did not want to get dirty I gladly accepted the offer to help. I remember us struggling to remove the spare tire from my trunk until the piece of metal holding it broke into pieces. We chatted for a bit then exchanged numbers since he was new in town. ..... I will keep the rest in the closet haha....
I was born and raised on the small tropical island of Dominica. I immigrated to the US after I graduted high school in order to further my education.
I am a very down to earth individual who enjoys traveling and nature. I was raised by my grandparents who taught me some great moral values. At a very early age, I learned to always work hard for what I wanted and that I could achieve anything I set my mind on. I learned to be independent, have a kind heart and knew that with patience and trust in God, good things would come my way. Of course we all have gone through difficult times, thats just how life is. But, with positivity and the love of family and friends, we make it through. I am very blessed that God placed Jerrell in my life to make me a better person and to show me what true love and happiness really is.
See y'all at the wedding!
Wow.... how do I talk about myself without sounding so vain? Well I was born in Chicago IL. I am the youngest child out of three. In my spare time I enjoy traveling, reading, visiting art museums and watching college sports. I am ambitious, kind hearted, sincere but yet frank. At a very young age, I learned the values of family and I have grown to love and adore my family and friends.
When I think about the trials and tribulations in my life I know that God has always blessed me. Some people last a lifetime trying to find their true love and though I found mine in the strangest place :)
I am truly blessed to have such an amazing man like Orion in my life.
See you soon!
