The story of LeVar and Salethia’s relationship is a classic example of “if it’s meant to be”. Destiny brought them together after several years on their separate paths. At the end, they not only found each other but found true love. I had a wonderful time documenting the strong love between both of them. We started out at Inman Middle school where they first met then we went down to Piedmont Park for some more shots. Congrats guys.. I am really looking forward to your wedding! Below is short story on how they met. I also included the proposal story (a good one!) further down so make sure you read that as well. Enjoy!
HOW WE MET
Salethia and I went to Inman Middle School together, and though we knew of each other, we didn’t really know one another. Fast forward 13 years, in the winter of 2009 and I’m browsing on facebook and I happen to run across her profile. Of course she looked gorgeous so I sent her a friend request and a message saying hello. She replied back and I mentioned we should get together and she left me her number but I never called. Then in the spring, we had an Inman Class of ’96 reunion at the Spaghett Factory and I saw her again! We both played it cool and went our separate ways. And still nothing happened until that summer, when I finally called her and set up our first date on June 19th. We went to Two Urban Licks for dinner and saw “The Hangover”. I think at that point with our silly personalities, we realized that we may have stumbled on to something great! Two years later we’re engaged and tying the knot on October 1. As we sit back and look at our relationship, we wonder, “Who knew??”. And I think we both understand that only GOD did!!!
Where it all started!
LeVar is a Videographer for a local news station in Atlanta. So he brought his big equipment to record some scenes of where he met his future wife.
I went with Salethia and her family on a weekend trip to Orlando. Her mom and brother already knew I planned to propose but of course, she didn’t. After we spent the day at Universal Studios, we came back to the hotel and I was able to take her away for a few hours. Initially I had made dinner reservations at a restaurant downtown. But we got back so late, and we promised to take her daughter Jayla to Magic Kingdom. So we ended up at Lake Eola and walked around their beautiful park. I then proceeded to recite a poem that I wrote to her on Valentines Day title, “There’s no you without no me.” After the poem I let her know how much she meant to me, got down on one knee and asked if she would do me the honor of being my wife?? After several minutes of excitement, smiling, and crying, she still hadn’t said yes and I was still on one knee, and I told her, “You know, you still have to say yes,” and she did!!!
Here is our attempt at a mini reenactment..lol
LeVar said Salethia jumped in the air after he proposed to her. So i was curious what the jump was like and she happily showed me!
