Monica and Tivon

How We Met

It was Spring 2006. Monica was invited to a party at a friend’s house where Tivon was already waiting to be introduced to her. When the two met, all Tivon saw was a big smile; all Monica saw was long hair and a beard. Since then, the two began to build a life together based on love, family, and friendship.

How They Asked

Like the past, on December 26, 2015 (one day before his birthday), Tivon disguised an engagement party as his birthday party. With a houseful of family and friends, Monica shyly refused what she thought was an invitation to dance. Instead, Tivon asked for Monica’s hand in marriage, and she said YES!!!
