Love, the month of June and wedded bliss. We have all heard the term “June Bride,” so we thought it fitting to end the month with a June Bride Feature, while honoring those who have taken the leap and sealed it with a kiss – becoming ONE in holy matrimony.
BWSU Celebrates the Union of New York, New York (Harlem) Couple – Crystal Jones to Rodney Campbell
Here are 3 Fun Facts on our Featured Couple, along with a Special Note from Crystal Jones (Bride):
How We Met
We met on September 19th 2000, I was at work selling Apartments and he came in and asked me what I was selling, I told him Co-ops he never brought one (lol), but he continued to come everyday until I agreed to go to lunch with him and from that day I was unable to shake this man; this is when I knew I was going to have this man in my life forever.
How He Proposed To Me
Can’t say it was really a big to do but knowing he was a shy man and not knowing how he would make the proposal, we went out to dinner and when we returned I went to shower and when I came back he was sitting on the bed with the ring in his hand asking me to marry him.
Our Wedding Day
We were happily married on June 1st 2013 at Central Park Conservatory on 105th street and Fifth Avenue.
“When your heart sends you in a direction you should follow it. I know that sometimes its a lot of bumps in the road but if you really love someone the bumps will only feel like pebbles.
I knew from the beginning that this was my soul-mate and no matter what people said or how they tried to deter me, I just believed that I should:
KEEP MY MAN IN MY HEART AND MY FRIENDS OUT MY BUSINESS, AND WE WOULD ERASE ALL OUR DOUBTS.
Trust me ladies anything worth fighting for will have to take time and energy and a whole lot of trust.”
Congratulations Crystal and Rodney! May you have many more years of bliss with continued unconditional love.
For all the ladies over 40 who have never been married or single again – REMEMBER, never give up on finding true love it is POSSIBLE!
