OMG...My Story is in Essence!

Updated: Nov 11, 2021

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved reading magazines. Some of my favorite publications were Jet, Ebony, InStyle and Essence Magazines. Last night a dream came true and I was featured on Essence website!

They shared a few of the engagement photos that Jimmie and I took but they primarily focused on my experience being a curvy bride. I am honored that I was able to tell my story but I know there are other women that have the same story as I. I hope that my truth helps to move the needle forward for curvy women in the bridal industry and in society as a whole. I am one of many women that have had this experience and my prayer is that I made you proud but most importantly made you feel seen. Everyone deserves to feel loved, worthy, and valued despite your size. I love you all so much and I thank you for all of your love and support!!!
