Lashay Harvey and Bakari Jones recently celebrated their wedding in the same place they got engaged–St. Mary’s Park in Baltimore. They chose a summer celebration because  wanted their “future summers to be filled with celebrations” (LaShay’s birthday is in June and Bakari’s is in August). They shared their love story and wedding photos with Elixher

ELIXHER: How would you describe your special day?

BAKARI: I decided that I wanted to feel like a prince the entire day so I’d describe it as “princely.” [Laughs.] Seriously, the day was completely covered in Black Magic; it unfolded like a flower. Plus, it rained that morning (good luck in our culture) so it was as if our ancestors had given us the “cherry on top” before the sundae. 

ELIXHER: What’s been the best part of being married so far?

LASHAY: There is something so magical about looking at your best friend every morning, and knowing that you are about to build a wonderful life together. Bakari and I started building something in our past lives so it feels amazing to start manifesting our dreams together now. Hearing folks call us “The Joneses” doesn’t hurt either!
