THE PROPOSAL IN AY’JAE’S WORDS:
“The proposal was very casual. We just kind of agreed that we were the ones for each other and wanted to spend our lives together on Royal Street in New Orleans while antique browsing,” shares Ay’Jae. “The engagement was solidified on a helicopter ride over the beaches in Destin, Florida in June of 2016.”
The couple said their vows in front of 300 of their family and friends in a romantic candle-lit garden ceremony. “My Favorite part of my wedding day was saying my vows,” says Ay-Jae. “Our wedding was truly a dream come true!”
