Throwback Tuesday: Robyn & Victor had an unforgettable wedding day in Maryland!

Many of you are probably wondering what’s going on with Tie the Knot Tuesday. Rightfully so.

My dream of showcasing real Black women in all their bridal bliss came true! Messages from both sexes flowed in from all over the world praising Tie the Knot Tuesday for showing them the possibilities of love and marriage when so many were saying it wasn’t possible for brown folks. Beautiful, right? Well, we’ve taken a small hiatus from TTKT as you know it. Here’s why: [Read more…]

Tie the Knot Tuesday Celebrity Special – Miranda Brooke + AJ Green

Mr. & Mrs. AJ Green taking in all their bliss!

Confession: Before this morning I had no idea who singer Miranda Brooke or Cincinnati Bengals NFL player AJ Green were. But the twosome tied the knot on March 21st in a lavish Atlanta wedding complete with several dress changes, plenty of bridesmaids and groomsmen, a six layer cake, specially choreographed dances at the reception and enough crystals for an Elton John world tour. Yet, judging from the pics and videos flooding the net of this affair online, the nuptials of Miranda and AJ weren’t pretentious and gaudy — just a hearty celebration of two people in love who decided to spend the rest of their lives together and wanted to make the most of the monumental occasion their way.

The 24 year-old songstress and 26 year-old jock met on Facebook in 2010. The pair said “I Do” at ATL’s famed 200 Peachtree venue. Their first dance was to John Legend’s So High and the bride’s father even broke out a fresh pair of Jordans to cut a rug with his daughter during the winter wonderland-themed affair.

Take a look at the fun pics and video to judge for yourself. In the meantime, Triple B is sending a heartfelt congratulations to the newlyweds for a healthy and happy marriage! [Read more…]
