It was a day they had all been waiting for and Tamika promised herself she wouldn’t cry. She made it through giving all her bridesmaids gifts of appreciation. She even made it through giving her parents gifts. They both didn’t even get to opening her hand written note before the waterworks started.
This is, after all, their youngest daughter. But when she was almost done with her thank you speech, she had a few words prepared for her husband and that’s when she broke her promise. Their first dance as husband and wife was epic, to say the least. It was quickly followed by dancing and even more laughter. Derrick and Tamika, I’m not even going to try to express how I feel about you two. So I’ll just say this. I simply adore you. Thank you for being so warm and incredible. I’ll see you guys soon.
