A True Vision at The Loft at 132

Jasmine and Albojay marry at The Loft at 132

Wedding Date: June 15, 2019

It must have been fate when track athletes Jasmine Groce and Albojay Deacon walked right into their destiny—literally. Preparing to perform a triple jump, Jasmine (without much- needed glasses, yet full of courage) squinted for the tiny mark that designated her position, and found herself running straight into Albojay. It was only the beginning, as they’d be looking to run into each other in the hallways in high school. Albojay’s proposal came as a double surprise. The first one wasn’t so positive: The two were out to dinner, but Jasmine noticed he was picking at his food and perspiring profusely, so she called for the bill so she could take her partner home for care. Turns out it was just nerves, as she realized on a walk later that evening overlooking Lake Michigan when he surprised her (again) by getting down on one knee. On their wedding day—the 14th anniversary of their first date—the couple delighted the guests from as far away as the United Kingdom and California with music including Afrobeat, dancehall, reggae, soca, reggaeton, hip-hop and R&B, a joyous celebration of their union.
