The Bride, ReNelle, on their special day: 

 “I was born and raised on the southern island of the Caribbean, Trinidad and Tobago. Trevor was born and raised in a small, southern town of Quincy, Florida. We decided to incorporate both cultures by using the African-American tradition of “Jumping the Broom” while both holding the Trinidad and Tobago National flag. This was to symbolize sweeping away the old and welcoming new beginnings as well as jumping into a new culture that we both would learn to embrace. Both musical styles from each of our culture were integrated at the reception; from old and new school R&B to soca and dancehall.”
