Monique + Kanten Wedding at Hilton McLean Tysons Corner

Amazing how love sometimes is just around the corner. Well Monique and Kanten were neighbours! During September of 2012 in Arlington, VA, Monique Young walked into a job interview, there sat two men; one was Kanten Wooten, the HR Manager. The interview went well and Monique was hired for the position. During employment orientation Kanten and Monique discussed future ambitions such as purchasing a home. Minutes into the conversation while reflecting on the past they both realized they attended the same elementary school, Oakcrest Elementary. A month later, Kanten informed Monique about a new home buying program which would assist her just as it assisted him with purchasing a home. As a result, Kanten found a great opportunity to purchase new construction property and shared this information with Monique. Monique toured the model home in the neighborhood and instantly fell in love! Monique was so excited and appreciative for all the information shared by Kanten that she called and left him a voicemail stating "guess what, we gonna be neighbors!!" Little did they know, this would be the start of a wonderful and dynamic friendship. On Thursday December 25th 2014, while being sick with a stomach virus, Kanten surprised Monique during family dinner by asking her to be his wife. She, of course, said YES and thus begins their journey of two becoming one.
Monique and Kanten got married at the most wonderful Hilton McLean Tysons Corner! Reception area was filled with outstanding decorations and flowers by Design by Oochay and Elle Nicole Events.
