When Jeremy and Shemeka Tied the Knot Part 3: Pure Bliss.  I still remember the day I met you, that summer your freshman year in the Reitz Union.  I remember because I watched you and Jerod try to figure out who was going to ask me how y'all could connect with the brown folk, aka about PAACT. You didn't have to be there for PAACT, but you wanted to be-- the same feeling I had a few years before.  I am so very happy for you @jeremy_rwatson; you and @ms_phenomenal_22 are two wonderful halves to a perfect whole! #blacklove #weddingfun #framily When Jeremy and Shemeka Tied the Knot Part 2: Diamonds and Pearls. #GoGators #dst1913 #kapsi1911 #weddingfun When Jeremy and Shemeka Tied the Knot Part 1: Sisterly Love.  #myblackisbeautiful #blackgirlmagic #weddingfun #mysistermysoror Celebrating Jeremy and Shemeka the prequel.
