Marriage Matters Monday: The State of Our Unions

Marriage Matters in Harlem!

Happy Monday! If you frequent BlackBridalBliss.com chances are you’re already over the doom and gloom conversations regarding Black marriage. So, how about checking out a panel discussion that does just the opposite with authors, bloggers and journalists that want to celebrate and enlighten you on Black marriages for a change? If you’re able to make it to Harlem USA this evening, head to Hue-Man Bookstore for a lively conversation led by my homie and relationships editor at ESSENCE magazine Charreah Jackson, veteran writer Miles Marshall Lewis, author Sedequa Johnson, newlywed blogging duo and Triple B alums Starr and Anslem aka The Lover’s Rocque (remember their awesome engagement pics?) and more. Enjoy!

The couple’s energy and love for each other is palpable. I know this couple personally and I couldn’t be happier for them. And since I know many of you recently said “Yes!” over the holidays, what better way to get inspired for your upcoming engagement session than by viewing images of this creative pair?

Like another one of my fave e-sessions, the Brooklyn-based Anslem and Starr let their location serve as a third subject of the shoot if you will. The duo was snapped on New York City’s iron horse and the equally gritty and glam Coney Island. Get ready to swoon:
