Once upon a time, there was a prince named Delano Squires. He was the only single male writer for this site, BlackandMarriedwithKids.com. What made this prince so special was that he was truly a good person that had a passion and desire to see healthy relationships in the African American community and in his own personal life as well. And so, he studied, prayed, and prepared himself for his future princess.
One day, the prince attended the premiere screening of our movie, Men Ain’t Boys. And little did he know that his life would change forever at that screening. You see, it was at that screening that Prince Delano met Princess Stephanie. They met, dated, and fell in love. They shared the following about the day the met in an interview with Blackbridalbliss.com:
“Is This Seat Taken?
When Stephanie arrived at an event hosted by Black and Married with Kids in the spring of 2011, she had no idea she would meet her future husband Delano. Delano at the time was the only single writer for the site and was immediately smitten with his future wife. “The scene was sorta prime for people to meet. I thought Stephanie was beautiful, I found her very attractive,” recalls Delano. He adds that she was personable and funny. Delano explains, “She seemed to have a welcoming demeanor.” Stephanie says in response with a laugh, “I can be very standoffish so I’m surprised he says I was welcoming. I was done with the whole dating scene.”
All of Me
Despite being finished with dating, Stephanie decided to give Delano a chance. The duo met in March and had their first lunch date in April. “I enjoyed being around Steph. We went to plays, museums, shows, etc. together. I could be myself around her,” Delano admits. He continues, “I think where we both were in life, neither of us had a lot of patience for foolishness.” Stephanie was equally smitten with Delano. “He always thinks “˜What would Stephanie like to do?’ Even in the way he planned our dates.” “And he’s not judgmental. I can be all the different faces of Stephanie with Delano.””
Delano and Stephanie were married in an absolutely breathtaking wedding ceremony on July 28, 2012.
And now Delano is king of his castle. And just as he did prior to marriage, he is ensuring that he has the right tools to make his marriage to Queen Stephanie “their happily ever after.”
We are so happy for Stephanie and Delano and we pray that God continues to bless their union. To read more of their interview go to Blackbridalbliss.com.
