We recently had the pleasure of helping the gorgeous couple of Ms. Sharde` Edwards and Mr. Aaron Davis become husband and wife. We couldn't be happier for them!
We asked them to share a little bit about their journey for this post and here is what they said:
How did you meet?
"The journey of Sharde' and I started sixteen years ago in our hometown of New Britain, CT. We met over the summer and instantly became the best of friends. I remember one night in particular Sharde' and I went out to a teen party at the Elks club and it really hit me that I had a huge crush on this girl. I decided to get bold and end the night with a kiss. I failed and Sharde' gave me the craziest look possible. I was fine with that because if an awesome friendship was what Sharde' desired, I had no problem whatsoever providing that for her. And what an awesome friendship it was!!! We were able see each other become parents to our own respective beautiful ladies (Kylee & Leah) that we now share in our lives, we watched each other graduate, we also both witnessed our successes and failures, but more than anything we stayed close and helped each other grow. With all that being said we became closer than we had ever expected."
"There is always that one person that holds a special place in your heart. Someone who you can talk to you and depend on, Aaron was mine. Aaron and I met the Summer of 2000 when I was a young 15 years old and immediately clicked. He was so funny and I loved his silly personality. He was someone I felt extremely comfortable around. He became my best friend and I became his."
And the popping of the question?
"On July 17th, 2016 I asked Sharde' to stay close and grow with me for the rest of our lives (and redeem myself from my Elks party failure!) and she said, 'YES'!"
"Over the year's Aaron and I remained very close. Aaron expressed interest multiple times but I valued the bond we had too much and feared we would ruin that by prematurely entering into a relationship. He respected my wishes each time and never switched up on me. He stood by my side for 12 years + until June 2013. It was June 2013, when Aaron and I reconnected via Facebook, which led us to talking, laughing and catching up on the phone for a few hours. During our catch up, the infamous question came up....'How's your love life?'... Next thing I know it is July 17th, 2015 at 3:00 AM and Aaron is down on one knee asking me to marry him!"
How did you feel leading up to the big day?
"Here we are, ready to tie the knot on October 8th, 2016 and I can never be any more excited than I am to begin this journey with my best friend, finally."
"If you would have asked me about Aaron and I prior to June 2013, my answer would have been, 'No, never', but I believe the response we received from our family and friends when we announced that we were a couple explains it best...'Finally!' And now I can't imagine it any other way!"
So it was that on the eighth day of October of this year that the were wed and what a wedding it was! Sharde` herself is working toward becoming an event planner here in Las Vegas so all the details of her day were to die for!
From the ceremony to the reception beautiful touches could been seen and enjoyed by all. It was a magical night at the Downtown Grand!
It was a night we won't soon forget and we are thankful that we got to be a part of your journey. We wish you both every success and happiness!
