Today, Wicked Sweet Cakes is shining a spotlight on a very special couple! I am so excited to introduce Kimone Kidd and Giovanni Grajales! A few months ago, Kimone was the winner in the Wicked Sweet Cakes Give-Away. Since then we have had a tasting consultation and chatted about their cake. I won’t share any wedding plan secrets, however, if I could use one word to describe their big day….EPIC!
Kimone and Giovanni are an amazing couple. They have been together 13 years after meeting in high school. Kimone noticed this cute, stylish guy sitting behind her in math class. She immediately started having a secret crush. Meanwhile, Giovanni noticed this new girl in school. He was instantly attracted to Kimone and his first thought was that she would be his girl! When I asked Kimone what is the secret to a lasting relationship, she said, “Our journey to this point wasn’t easy at all but one thing I can say that is definitely a secret to a lasting relationship is communication!! Also a few other key secrets are trust, compromise, love and just be you & have fun!”
Since noticing each other 13 years ago, they have moved to North Carolina from Connecticut. They have 3 amazing kids! Jayla is an 8 year old cutie that loves being a girl and having her hair and nails done. She is the big sister to 2-year-old twins - Zuri and Zamir. Zuri is a “take charge” kind of girl. She is 19 minutes older than Zamir, so she thinks she is Zamir’s mom. Zamir is the wild child. He is full of energy and can take on the world! Jayla, Zuri, and Zamir are all wonderfully sweet children who are thrilled about the wedding!
After building a life together, Giovanni proposed in a beautifully heartfelt way. In 2016, at their baby shower while Kimone was pregnant with their twins, Giovanni proposed. After Kimone opened all of their gifts, one small box without a tag remained. As she started ripping the wrapping paper off of the box, Tory Lanez’s Luv started to play. Inside the box were two little outfits. The first onesie read “Mommy will you” followed by the second outfit that read “marry our Daddy?” Kimone covered her face and burst into tears. When she looked up, Giovanni was on one knee asking her to be his wife!
So, now they are about to take another step in their journey. Kimone and Giovanni will exchange vows on May 18th at Barclay Villa in Angier, NC. I can’t wait to see what Jessica George Wedding and Events has planned! Wicked Sweet Cakes is thrilled to be a part of Kimone and Giovanni’s day!
