All things white, bright and beautiful

Jezell & Chris Toney

HOW WE MET: It was 2006 – my first year as a senior at Lee High School. One day I was heading to the computer lab, and along the way I was stopped by a guy. He asked me if he could get to know me, and I told him I was in a relationship. I graduated and went off to college, but we stayed in contact throughout the years over Facebook. He would sometimes write me, and I wouldn’t respond back. Fast forward to 2018: Chris asked me out to dinner at Terranova’s, and we knew then and there this was different, and we wanted to continue going out with one another.

HOW WE FELL IN LOVE: Chris and I usually FaceTimed one another whenever we were apart. He started asking me questions about how I felt about him. I remember playing Teddy Pendergrass’ “When Somebody Loves You Back,” which basically summed up how I felt about him. We knew we were destined to be together. The love and appreciation we had for one another could never be matched.

THE PROPOSAL: Chris had told me we were going on a date at Grille29 in Huntsville. I kind of figured he was up to something. Grille29 was one of our favorite spots to go to. He greeted me with red roses, followed by a singer and a trumpet player. It was so beautiful. He had someone recording the entire proposal. It was really special to me.

FAVORITE WEDDING DETAILS: Our entire wedding day was beautiful: from the decor, to the wedding party, to our entire wedding day. Just to share it with the ones we love – and everyone was dressed in Great Gatsby/Roaring 20s attire – was everything we could dream of. We literally danced till the end of the night – we danced the night away as the Toneys.
