Wedding Wednesday: The Maddox Wedding

The Maddox Wedding | May 29, 2017 | Photography by: Noah Magnifico Photography

Temeca Manns and Bomani Maddox first connected through an online dating website. Their first phone call lasted all night, neither hanging up until 2 AM. That phone call was the start to many a long conversations. Temeca says that she loves the fact that Bomani is such a "talker." The couple faced many challenges in their first year as an official couple; Bomani's father passed and Temeca was diagnosed with breast cancer. But, nothing deterred Bomani and Temeca from pursuing one another.

It was Mother's Day 2015 when Bomani proposed to Temeca surrounded by family. Temeca was in unusually high spirits going into the night, seeing as she had just gone through a round of chemo the Friday before. Her mood was dampened by complications with her meal. But, once Bomani proposed, every sour feeling from the night disappeared. Instead, it would be remembered as one of the happiest nights of their lives.

The couple prided their wedding on being "outside of the box." They chose lime green, black, and ivory for their colors. Their wedding party encased the couple as they stood in the pulpit, during their church ceremony. Temeca's mother gave her away at the ceremony. Plus, for their reception, they went with non-traditional music, to create a unique, simple, but elegant atmosphere for their guests. Keeping with the couples individual tastes and experiences, each table had a name to do with something important to the Temeca, Bomani, or the couple. They hoped this would promote conversation at the tables.

Instead of the traditional party favor, the couple made a donation in their guests' names to the American Cancer Society. This was not only a memorable gift, but a way for them to celebrate just how much they've overcome as a couple. Their wedding was the perfect way to honor their growth as a couple and begin their lives together.
