Asha Hill and Valencia Walker met 10 years ago. “From the first time I saw Asha, I was intrigued by her wit and athleticism,” Valencia said. “Nonetheless, I knew things were not going to be as easy as I would have liked it to be, given we were both in a relationship at that time.” The two reconnected two years ago in Atlanta and have been inseparable since then.
Although they live in Texas, Asha and Valencia married on pride weekend in San Francisco and shared their day with L Style G Style in a story titled “A Wedding to Remember.” Despite not having their marriage recognized in Texas, Valencia advises couples who live in states where their marriages are not legally recognized, to “Keep loving who you love and be proud of who you are. Keep yourself informed and participate in activities that support LGBT [communities]. My hope is that Texas will be the next state to approve gay marriages. It’s a long road but it’s just the right thing to do.” Asha said she was thrilled to “have found the one who was compatible to me, my best friend … my wife.”
Although the wedding took place at city hall, it had an intimate yet glamorous feel. The beautiful brides limited their wedding party to two close friends and even drove themselves to their own wedding.
