Lloydia Jackson and Irvin Carney say their romance blossomed quickly after meeting in 2011 volunteering for March of Dimes, from an unofficial date at Waffle House to moving in together.
Both active in their college fraternity and sorority (him Phi Beta Sigma and her Zeta Phi Beta), naturally they became engaged at their 2016 joint conference. After a farewell dance, the DJ handed Irvin the mic, and he got on stage and asked Lloydia to marry him. Surprised and ecstatic, she said “yes” between tears of joy.
The bride is a special education teacher, and the groom is a development operations engineer. The couple married on April 20, 2018, at Manor House, where their 1-year-old daughter watched them tie the knot.
