JAzmine Reeves and Tyshawn Bell met while attending middle school in Camden, Delaware, but he didn’t ask her out until high school — via text. “I still don’t know where he got my number,” says Jazmine, Amazon’s hiring manager. When Tyshawn, a year before Jazmine, graduated, their relationship became long distance. But both knew they were meant to be.

Eight years passed as they cultivated their love from afar: they attended college and started their careers in different states. Tyshawn even spent a year playing professional basketball overseas. (He now works with high-risk children.) Finally, in 2016, the couple settled down — together — in Jessup, Maryland. The following years were filled with joy: they welcomed baby girl Kaia in 2017, got engaged in 2018 and had their second daughter, Oaklynn, in 2019.

They expected to continue the celebration by getting married in May 2020 at the Ben’s Ballroom, a renovated turn-of-the-century venue, but the pandemic forced them to postpone to the following year.

In the end, Jazmine and Tyshawn were thrilled with the outcome. The decor was pure glamour: an opulent ballroom; a white, ivory and gold color scheme; and dramatic floral installations.

Even the reduced guest list (90 instead of 209) had a positive side: it allowed the couple to spend more one-on-one time with family and friends.


Rather than doing some of the more traditional activities (like tossing a bouquet or a garter), the couple and their wedding party took the time to snap photos of themselves popping champagne. “We love how this really captured how much fun we had,” the bride said.

A particularly special guest of honour? Jazmine’s formerly incarcerated brother, who surprised her as the couple took portraits.

As for this ceremony, it was unforgettable. Says Jazmine: “After so many years together, our commitment to each other at this time was overwhelming.”
