Latoya and David’s wedding, originally planned for 200+ guests, instead was changed to an intimate gathering of 40 of their closest family members and friends in Latoya’s mom’s backyard in Happy Valley, August 1st, 2020.
With their ceremony and reception featuring pops of ivory and gold, table centerpieces featuring eucalyptus, white roses and ferns from A Floral Affair, signage from Letters and Dust, and Latoya’s beautiful lace, fit-and-flare gown from Lillian West, their wedding day, in Latoya’s words, was “better than I ever dreamed it to be”
HOW DID YOU TWO MEET?
“David and I met in 2011 in a writing class at Mt. Hood Community College. I was late getting to the class because I had a morning gym class on the other side of campus...I opened the door to the classroom and everyone did that thing when you’re in a room and someone enters, simultaneously turned around and looked at me."
"I immediately grabbed the first seat available and sat down. Next thing I know the person to the left of me sticks his hand out to greet me and says, “Hi, I’m David.””
