Jada and O’ Dane grew up together in the City of Poughkeepsie, New York, and attended church and Sunday School together. They dated in high school and even went to senior prom together! The night before Mother’s Day, May 13, 2017, they went to a John Legend concert in Clearwater. O’Dane had already purchased a rare yellow, cushion cut diamond ring and had been secretly hiding it in his kitchen cupboard, but he had no intention of proposing until Jada’s birthday in August. After the concert, they went back to his place and he asked, “So, what are you doing for the rest of your life? Want to spend it with me?” The rest is history.
For their wedding venue, they chose the museum as their location because it’s unique and different, much like their relationship.
Jada’s ceremony dress reflects her tomboy/diva personality. She doesn’t like a ton of bling; she’s more into the understated beauty, but with a little flair! Her ceremony dress was very artsy and reminded her of something she saw on “Sex and the City,” the movie. Her reception dress, on the other hand, was inspired by old Hollywood, Marilyn Monroe / Dorothy Dandridge. O’Dane’s tux was inspired by watching “Married at First Sight” and one of the grooms had on a blue tux with black lapels (but O’Dane’s was better!).
Their wedding’s theme was “Old Hollywood Glam.” It was a perfect combination of modern meets old Hollywood. the love and fun shared as a family was definitely the highlight of the wedding day!
