Tre’Mesia and Fred’s Milestone Georgetown wedding was everything and more than they could have ever imagined. After months of planning, it has all come together. But most importantly, they are finally going to be married and celebrate with their loved ones!
F+T’s Love Story
Back in 2017, this two met at work. They would often pass each other, exchange smiles, and say the occasional “hi.”
Fred ended up being Tre’Mesia’s trainer during a work cross-training. Because of this, more conversation between the two occurred. They both felt (but never said) that they’d known each other for a very long time. It was just one of those feelings.
About a year later, Fred finally asked her on a date. Unfortunately, during their first date, nerves kicked in and Fred locked himself out of his car. Although they were still able to enjoy the poetry reading at the Spiderhouse Ballroom, they had the locked car weighing on their minds.
With him having to work at 3 AM and the poetry reading not ending until midnight, Tre’Mesia graciously offered to drive him back to his apartment to grab his spare key. During the hour drive, Fred admitted to having feelings for her.
Two months later, he asked her to be his “lady” and 2 years later, his fiancé.
Bride and Groom-to-Be
You may remember Tre’Mesia and Fred’s proposal story and engagement session at McKinney Falls (if not, click here).
When it comes to their wedding, they want their day to “reflect who we really are, with joy sparking all around us. For it to embody the humbleness and faithfulness that helps sustain our loyalty that we have for one another. The gentleness, goodness, and self-control that orders our steps towards our biggest and smallest goals in life. And the peace that nurtures our hearts, minds, spirits, and souls.”
Being the couple that they are, with the love they have for each other and for their loved ones, they want their wedding to be a celebration of not only their love, but a unification between their family and friends.

It’s Time to Say ‘We Do’
Fred coming down the aisle. If he was nervous at all, we definitely could not tell!
With everyone in position at the ceremony site, Tre’Mesia and her father begin walking down the aisle.
Tre’Mesia and Fred chose to do a traditional first-look. Personally, I’m all for it! I think there’s something so sweet and intimate about the couple seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day, walking down the aisle. Especially when the groom’s reaction is:
Fred didn’t think he’d cry. But he just couldn’t hold back his tears when he saw his beautiful bride.
“Unity candles are a symbolic part within the wedding ceremony. The wedding candle represents the joining of two people in the new marriage.” I love the personalized candles that not only tied in their names and wedding date, but also their wedding colors.
They did it! They’re officially husband and wife!
The newlyweds wanted to incorporate the jumping of the broom. “During this wedding tradition, the couple jumps over a broom that is placed on the floor at the front of the wedding ceremony. According to Desireé Dent of Dejanae Events, ‘jumping the Broom is an African tradition created during the days of slavery. It not only symbolizes the sweeping away of evil, past loves and the old you, but it also represents jumping into a new life together and setting up your household.'”
