Priceless moments, memories
AUGUST 29 will always be a special date for newly-weds Shanette, nee Grimes, and Kerwyn Price.
Their romance started on that date in 2013, and the two exchanged vows on their second anniversary at the New Life Tabernacle, Kendall Hill, Christ Church on August 29. They then went on to Mahogany Ridge, St James for the reception and the celebration of the special occasion continued. Shanette was fashionably late as most brides are wont to do, but it was arguably well worth the wait in the sweltering heat.
She was a picture of beauty in her white gown with strapless top and layered bottom. She also had a thin layer of the same shades of pink and blue worn by the men and women in the bridal party at the front of the gown at the waist.
While not necessarily the exact shades, the colour scheme was reflected among the guests. Several of the invitees to the small and intimate affair sported pink and blue in their clothing and accessories.
Kerwyn and Shanette were cocooned together in a canopy as the vows were exchanged. They repeated the traditional pledges to each other and shifted slightly from the norm at an interval to recite vows to each other which they had prepared.
The Prices are special in more ways than one. They beat out several others to emerge winners of the annual Forever I Do competition, which is sponsored by the NATION. Their prizes included bridal attire, a wedding reception, wedding transportation, floral arrangements, lingerie, a honeymoon and a bridal registry.
An interesting twist in the Prices’ story, is the fact that they are both half of a twin. Kerwyn’s identical brother, Kevin, stood right beside him as best man through it all. And while she was not the maid of honour Shanette’s twin, Shaneese, was one of the four bridesmaids so she, too, was up front and key to the proceedings.
A touching moment was when the quartet got together for a photo opportunity outside the church, immediately following the ceremony.
The only thing that would have made it more perfect was if Kevin and Shaneese were actually dating. That is not the case, but word on the ground is that wedding bells will soon be ringing for at least one of them. Lots are being cast as to which twin will follow the sibling who has already tied the knot.
