Steph and Rashad SBP 10-08-09- Mr. and Mrs Jackson!!!!

Stephanie and Rashad
Escape Wedding at Sea Breeze Point on October 8, 2009



Me- My name is Stephanie and I am a pre-kindergarten teacher in an inner city school! I love working with my 3,4 and 5 year olds. I grew up in Lancaster PA, but moved last year outside of Harrisburg

My Love- Rashad is and x-ray tech. He grew up in Georgia, but after high school he moved around quite a bit. Thankfully he ended up in Harrisburg.

How we met- We are another Match.com success story. I had just moved to Harrisburg, I didnt know anyone so I went online and he was the first guy I messaged. I read his profile and knew he was perfect for me, and if he would just look at my profile he would see that I was perfect for him too (lol) . It took him 3 agonizing days to respond to me.... which I found out was because that weekend he moved to Baltimore! (and hour and a half away)

We made the long distance thing work for us (thank goodness teachers have the summers off. Rashad moved back to PA to be close to me.

The Wedding- I should have probably mentioned that my Dad is a BIGTIME Disney fan! (for those of you on other disney forums He is HTROUPE). He and my mom had such a great time trick or treating at MK a few years back that they decided to take the whole family (Grandparents, me and my sister and boyfriends included) to Disney World the fall of 2009 to do it again.

Rashad and I talked for a while and decided that this would be a great time for us to get married, with my family all there and his family much closer to Florida than PA. So we booked our wedding! OOPS It was a perfect plan except we forgot to get engaged first.

Proposal On February 14, 2009, I visited Rashad in MD while he was working. He took me to our favorite spot in Inner Harbor. Where we spent a lot of time during the "long distance " part of our relationship. It was freezing cold, and it started snowing. Rashad gave me my Valentines present a box. and when I opened it I saw a beautiful aquamarine necklace. He told me to "Stand up so I can help put it on you" So I did and when I turned around to show him the necklace... he was holding and AMAZING aquamarine engagement ring. And he said "Will you marry me?"

Here is the ring



Right after our engagement:




OUR PLANNING *so far*
Planner- Amy- (She has been so helpful! )
Ceremony- Sea Breeze Point, at 12noon
Reception -Most likely Boardwalk convention center
Photographer-Randy Chapman
Videographer- unsure if I have the budget for it

YAY!! My October Wedding Planning buddy!! We're going to have to keep other in check as far as planning goes! We'll probably run into each other in the parks down there. We're going down the day you get married!

Your DF has great taste in jewelry! That ring is just beautiful. So elegant!

Congrats on your engagement - looking forward to reading more of your plans!

Rev. Jack Day

Well I have been back and forth for about a month on an officiant. I really wanted a non-religious ceremony but we didnt know who to get to perform. Well after much deliberation and a lot of research we finally chose Rev. Jack Day. His civil ceremony is beautiful and I have not heard one bad thing about him yet!

YAY! One step closer to the big day!
