  1. How Cute, seriously! Love is in the air out there in DC, there was that Paris engagement…..seriously! I’m jealous.

  2. he looks like big gay al (star jones’s exhusband/wife). what sorority is she in? whoops, nvm…..she’s the k’s. she’s bad, though. i want one like her.LMAO.

  3. They ain’t spring chickens and I like that. Those late-life romances are interesting. For once, though, I wish a highly successful person would marry the bus driver. Wouldn’t that be something? That doesn’t happen in the real world, I know, unless it’s a rich man marrying a golddigger.

  4. Ladies,I do believe that she is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. It looks like they are serenading her with the Sweetheart song.Beautiful wedding!

  5. The caption in the photo says she’s an AKA…I sure hope the photographer didn’t get that wrong.

  6. @ Michelle TooNo way, now how! Melody Barnes is AKA all the way. Surely there were sisters of DST there to wish her well as she embarks on this new chapter in her life but she is being seranaded by our sorors.

  7. @ SWIVYeah I thought exactly the same thing too. He looks a lot like Big Gay Al Reynolds. Definitely a little too ":sweet" and that sissified processed hair ain’t helping

  8. I think Mr. Buckner is half-white, so his hair isn’t processed, LOL. The pictures of my soror are beautiful and as someone who is "late in life," it gives me hope.

  9. He is Canadian, biracial, a divorcee, extremely intelligent, ambitious, and definitely NOT gay.
