Brittany + Troy first met at an Army training event at Fort Dix in New Jersey. Troy caught Brittany’s eye when she observed how caring, patient and goal oriented he was. Their conversations started by discussing their awesome Army skills and then progressed to talking about their love of family, food, and future business ventures. They also discovered that they are both graduates from a Historically Black College or University!
Brittany and Troy have both been deployed, and knowing that Troy would have to leave again soon they spent every moment together traveling. While traveling, Brittany would talk about her future goals and they eventually became his as well. It was during this treasured time that Brittany knew that she wanted him to be her husband.
During one of Troy’s previous deployments Brittany wrote him a love letter to which he claimed to “never have received.” However, on April 15th, 2017 Brittany and Troy were hosting a housewarming party…Troy used this event as a platform to propose to Brittany. It wasn’t just any type of proposal, he got down on one knee and proposed to Brittany by reading her the “lost love letter” that she sent him during his deployment. Of course she said yes! Troy say’s Brittany enhances his life in every aspect. She is constantly setting goals and it is only a matter of time before she reaches them. There is nothing that she can’t do.
Even though Troy and Brittany are not from this area, they have been visiting Florida for years. They love being able to enjoy they warm weather and tropical feel during the winter months. Since they love to travel, they knew it would be great for their family as well. Brittany and Troy styled their wedding to be the epitome of black elegance with a Nubian twist and I have to admit black, royal blue, and gold never looked SO GOOD!
Congratulations Brittany + Troy, I loved hearing you say “I’m married!” to your guests. It was such a happy and heartfelt moment!
