We met in Pennsylvania in 1999. We moved to North Carolina in 2002 and married in 2003. We were married in July in a small ceremony, and later had an outdoor reception in a private mountain setting along a stream.
Corey is generous with his friends, always lending a helping hand. Lil is a free spirit who likes to encourage people to follow their dreams.
Our friends and family came in from all over the country, from Boston to L.A. With the help of a friend who arrived early, Lil made the wedding cake, a slightly leaning three-tiered cake with vanilla frosting and fresh flowers as decorations. Lil bought her dress for $60 at a local shop. It was hand-made in India and had intricate hand-stitched embroidery. Her older sister, Merissa, did her hair. It was all a down-home, kind of back-yard ordeal, although they hired a professional caterer and florist for that elegant touch. As the guests arrived, a thunderstorm passed through, and Corey, along with some family and friends, scrambled to save what could be saved from the unexpected downpour. The stream surged and the wine that was chilling in the cold water was washed away downstream. To this day, our friends and family say it was one of the funnest weddings they have ever attended. Certainly, it was memorable.
Meet Corey By Lil
Corey is a man who was raised with morals and integrity. If he says he will do something, he will. He is generous with his friends, always lending a helping hand when asked, and offering one when not asked. He will be a great father, as he will raise a child who knows responsibility and hard work and accountability, as well as fun and love and kindness. Corey is not one to shy away from household chores such as cleaning, doing dishes or laundry. He also has a great sense of humor and often makes me belly-laugh, sometimes surprising me at how quick and witty he can be. Corey has a great sense of fashion and interior design, and is also rather handy with power tools and household projects. He is very close with his mother - they talk or text nearly every day. He values his family and loves his wife and cares for all creatures big and small.
