We're Married!

Dontè & Alicia

"He who finds a wife, finds a good thing." Proverbs 18:22

Alicia Wilson

The Bride a.k.a. Biker Booty

Her family calls her princess and I can see why! Hahaha

Alicia is an amazing person. She’s very loving and intentional about her time. She has helped me become the man you know me as today. Alicia encourages and advises me in business, holds me accountable and keeps me organized, does devotions & prays with me daily, and makes sure I’m eating instead of getting lost in work. I would not have had the growth I’ve had over the past 3 years without Alicia’s support.

Alicia is competitive and we both see ourselves as “the prize” so we’re constantly in competition over who can do more for the other. That shift has made these 3 years blow by, but keeps the peace and communication open in our relationship. I couldn’t have asked for a better mate. I listened to what God told me and I pulled up and locked it down!

You ain’t going no-where woman! LOL

Donte Murphy

The Groom a.k.a. Hunni Bun

Simply said, Donte is an amazing God sent friend, son, uncle, brother, mentor but most of all son of God.

From our first meetup at Starbucks, you've been the calm in the storm, peace when there is none to be found and a God sense of light. You're patient, overly generous always giving to others, compassionate, super sweet and a Jesus follower that I admire and love. You are a natural creator, the life of the party, my travel companion, and the best cook ever.

Over these 3 years, I've watch you grow in so many areas of your life and I am so grateful to be apart of your journey. Words can't describe how excited I am to continue to grow and create along with you. You are my prize!

Starbucks The Beginning 2017
Jan 15, 2017

Our first meetup

That day changed everything

Starbucks was the beginning of us. A cup of Joe for most but a moment of peace and calm within the storm surrounding us. That day with you was like stillness, being lost in your eyes and never wanting it to end.

Alicia won the basketball game LOL Chuckie Cheese

Who would have guessed our first date would be at Chuckie Cheese? So fun, freeing and random! The perfect representation of our relationship.

Easter with Donte's Family

She found out how big the family was lol

Alicia's parent are both only children, and she grew up in a small family with her and her brother. When she met my family for the first time, she was embraced by about 15 people lol. She handled herself well and won the crowd over with her seafood stuffed shells!

The First Time She Said Yes

It happened on the couch

It was on this evening while sitting on her couch, I asked Alicia to be my girlfriend and she said yes. There was no special story, just a yeah and changing of our Facebook relationship status. I want to note she took like 2 weeks before she accepted the request Hahaha lol

Traveling with bae

Went to Puerto Rico for Alicia's Birthday

This year for Alicia's birthday I wanted to take her somewhere she would enjoy, but she could experience an adventure with #TravelingTe. It's our favorite place now! 🙂

Proposal TLA 2020
Jan 25, 2020

How he proposed

She had no clue it was happening! Lol

Alicia and I met at the TLA on September 17th, 2016 and that's where I wanted to propose. I reached out to Alicia's parents on the 24th and told them I wanted to propose on the 25th. I then called JP & Olivia and told them the plan. They agreed to take candid shots of the proposal! On Saturday the 25th, we headed down to South Street to eat at Nora's Kitchen. When we parked, I grabbed Alicia's hand and pulled her across the street in front of the TLA. I walked over to an open space where JP could take some photos and I proposed! People across the street were cheering for the proposal and a couple guys walking past yelling, "pull up! I would have been proposed!" Alicia was confused, but when I got on one knee with the ring she was super surprised. She said yes, she would marry me and have my babies! 🙂

Afterwards, the street cheered us on and we walked to Nora's Kitchen. My family was there to meet us and we had a great time celebrating!

Wedding Philadelphia, PA

Now we're together

The best is yet to come!

 

“From my point of view, if you put your partner ahead of yourself, and your partner does the same for you - everyone ends up happy. But that requires making your needs known. I can't put your needs ahead of mine if I'm guessing what they are.”

What Would Jesus Do?

The best lesson I have applied to our relationship is as cliché as it gets. My inner voice goes “Are your words and/or actions aligned with God”? When Proverbs 3: 5-6 says “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding...
