Julie & Kinyatta Celebrate 14 Years of Love in a Summer Wedding

Written by Kinyatta Gray


I met Julie at a mutual friend’s milestone birthday party in Washington, D.C. I found Julie’s shyness, yet, warm and inviting smile and stimulating conversation very attractive. When I shared with Julie that I was a single mom, her eyes lit up because she loves children and welcomed mine into her life with loving and open arms.

I love Julie’s intense loyalty and devotion, and she loves the way I love her and accept her in every way.


After being together for 14 years, we got married this summer in College Park, Md. It was important to us to legally become one and to join our lives together in the eyes of the law and to create security and stability for our family and to record our devotion and lifelong commitment in history records.

Our wedding day, hands down, was the most beautiful experience ever. Our vision for a luxe, classy and sophisticated wedding was executed flawlessly. We were excited to share the display of our love, loyalty and affection to our closest family and friends.


We found it challenging when people we thought were friends decided to not come to our wedding because they did not support same-sex marriage. We respected their right to their beliefs and carried on!
