Quenton Beard met Jamichael Hill while they both attended high school in Mobile. According to Jamichael, they were not formally introduced until after leaving for college. But Quenton’s opinion differs in that he states they held a few conversations before graduating.
Nonetheless, after that first official post-graduation conversation in 2007, a lifelong romance began culminating in the union of two hearts nine years later.
Quenton proposed on Dec. 31, 2014 at the Vulcan, one of Jamichael’s favorite places and a common date night venue for them. He knew of her love of views and knew it would be the perfect spot as well as provide the best memories.
Jamichael and Quenton were united in marriage on May 28, 2016 at the Hyatt Regency Birmingham – The Wynfrey Hotel. The wedding was officiated by the groom’s cousin, Demetria Lawrence.
On their wedding day, the bride was escorted by her father, Michael Wright. The bride wore a gown by Enaura Bridal Couture acquired from Bridals by Lori in Sandy Springs, Ga.
Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed dinner and dancing in the ballroom of the Wynfrey Hotel.
Dessert was provided by Julie Hendrick of Sweet Magnolia Cakes. Due to a mutual love of gold tones, especially rose gold, the couple chose rose gold bands to complement each other. They took this love of gold tones into their wedding as an accent color. Coral tones were incorporated from the bride’s favorite color and navy was incorporated on behalf of the groom.
The couple chose personalized matchboxes as a favor their guests, featuring the wedding date, the wedding hashtag (#MEETTHEBEARDS) and the saying, “The Perfect Match.” They left in an Audi A7 after walking through a reception line of sparklers and well-wishers.
The couple’s home is in Montgomery, where the groom is an engineer and the bride is an educator.
