Well, it will be smaller than the one in the movie, but it’s definitely not toned down, per the wishes of my groomzilla. D’s very involved in every detail. My dude is having a princess moment. Me?

I wish Gabrielle Peace, Happiness and Love. My prayers and best wishes go out to her, I can only imagine the turmoil she must feel at times but sometimes you just have to go with your heart and trust God that everything will work out. I hope D appreciates the fact that she, unlike previous females he has been involved with, is not after his money but genuinely loves him.

Let's Talk! I want to know what you think?
