Wedding Party

PJ Hennigan (Best Man)

Too long ago to mention when they met, but PJ is Ted’s best friend from South Buffalo, NY, where they attended a New York Catholic middle school together—which is why they turned out so bad!


Maid of Honour

Jennifer Najar (Maid of Honor)

Jennifer and Katina have always been mistaken for one another! 3yrs apart, they are almost identical! This beautiful Maid of Honor is as sweet, loving and nurturing as they come. Near or far, the bond they share is inseparable! They truly are identical twins at heart!

Craig Myers (Friend)

(Craig Boogie, aka C-Smooth) is one of Ted’s (TABU’s) best friends from the 1990’s, a great Hip-Hop dancer, and in true South Buffalo form—is funny (not as funny as Ted however), he tells it like it is, and is a die hard Bills fan!



Cassandra Nicols (Sister)

Cassandra has always been a fun and adventurous women who didn’t mind her younger sister Katina, tagging along and stealing her cloths! Special moments shared included Katina’s first trip to Mexico, first college party and when Cassandra would take her shopping each year for the first day of school!

Dante Oakley (Oldest Son)

Now taller than his Dad, Dante tends to show his love for his father by asking him questions like, “Are you getting shorter, or am I getting taller?” Dante is now a college student and aspires to be the President of the United States. He is blessed with his Dad’s looks and hilarious sense of humor.



Tamisha Bedford (Cousin)

Katina and Tamisha always make the most of their quality time together. No matter the distance between them, these two love dancing, laughing, and joking the night away. They also can’t say good-bye to each other without crying! Best cousins for life!!

Antonio Oakley (Middle Son)

Not yet taller than his Dad, Anton still looks up to him. Anton is more the adventurer and likes sports and the outdoors. He also wants to be President and is blessed with his Dad’s chiseled facial features and Adonis-like body.



Brienna Joseph-Flowers (Best Friend)

Brieanna and Katina have been best friends since their families met in 90’s and have always been Sista’s from other Mista’s! While in college, they both enjoyed long weekends of wine and binge watching old movies, such as “Sistaaaa, you’ve been on my mind!” (Miss Celie’s Blues, The Color Purple)

Nathaniel Oakley (Youngest Son)

Nate might be taller than his Dad but it’s because of the hair. He is 5-foot, 10-inches tall BUT 6-foot, 2-inches tall with the Afro. Nate is a tech savvy High School student who is lucky to have his Dad’s manly features. Nate related he will be President in 2040.



Jenny Garza (Best Friend)

Jenny Garza and Katina have been best friends since becoming cheerleaders in the 8th grade. Joined at the hip, these two had many wild nights and hilarious stories while picking up food at 2am in late night drive thru’s.

Love is a decision not an emotion or a feeling,
that if made from the heart will outlast anything
