I have so much love for Meshayla and Cherod. I’ve been lucky enough to get to know these two a little bit over the course of the last year and a half, and I know that they had to roll with a lot of changes in their wedding plans and lives, mainly due to Cherod’s military deployment on an overseas hardship tour. After having to postpone their wedding, Meshayla and Cherod finally tied the knot this past December in Richmond, Va. Thanks to Nica Lewis and her team at Once in A Lifetime Events, the day was a perfect mix of family, laughter and just the right details. When asked recently what Meshayla and Cherod loved about each other, this is what they answered: “Most of all, I love her because she loves me. I am a Soldier in the US Army, which instantly made her a military spouse. This life I know has it’s challenges; however, she embraced the military life, because it is a part of me. She makes me a better husband, father, and a man.” And this is what Meshayla had to say about her Cherod: “From the day we became a couple, he has poured out so much love. So much that you wouldn’t think that just one person could do that. Even though he is halfway across the world, he never lets a day go by without calling, texting, or skyping to let me know that he loves me. I never have to question it. Not to mention the fact, that he cares for, loves and is soooo attentive to my son. That’s just who he is, a GREAT man with a GREAT heart. Who could choose one thing with a man like this.” Meshayla and Cherod, thank you for making me a part of your wedding experience!
