Upon graduating from the University of South Carolina (the real USC, as he calls it), Jeremy moved to Atlanta, Georgia to begin his engineering career with TDK Corporation of America. It wasn’t until his job took him to Dallas, Texas that he met Danielle on the campus of Southern Methodist University in October 2008 who had graduated that summer with her Bachelor’s in Journalism.
Eight months later, they FINALLY went on their first date. Jeremy set the bar by taking Danielle to Trulucks. After that, they were inseparable. Within three months, she met the family at Jonathan’s and Meltrece’s (Jeremy’s brother and sister in law) wedding in South Carolina – no pressure for her. Thankfully, everyone loved her and the rest was history.
Family and friends have always been important to Jeremy and Danielle. They were both adamant to meet each others closest friends and family. Jeremy met Papa Rhodes and Angela in Florida and they instantly fell in love with him. They couldn’t be more proud that Erica Danielle found an amazing man to share her life with. Mama Vashi was a little harder to convince on the other hand, but Jeremy eventually wore her down. Now she can’t see her daughter with anyone else and truly thinks of Jeremy as her son.
In February 2011, Danielle took the leap to move to Los Angeles, California under the encouragement of Jeremy, but the distance couldn’t tear them apart. After two years, Jeremy followed suit and moved to Los Angeles. He proposed to Danielle on February 4, 2013 (her birthday). This is, of course, after Jeremy received blessings from Erica Danielle’s parents.
Danielle and Jeremy tied the knot in the beautiful city of Boca Raton, Florida with her dad and stepmom as witnesses on August 27, 2013. Due to crazy schedules, they are finally able to have their fall reception to share their union with family and friends.
It has been a long and amazing journey, but neither one could imagine it without the other.
