Prince James is full of joy, energy, and laughter! He will find a way to demand your attention while melting your heart at the same time. He is also technology savvy & Snapchat is his favorite! Although Prince James is the baby of the Royal Godchildren, he has a larger than life personality!
Prince Blake may seem shy on the outside, but that's until you get to know him. He is a smart, unique little boy and he is spoiled rotten! Prince Blake is the middle child of the Royal Godchildren. The way to Blake's heart is through kisses!! Watch out for him ladies!
Prince Jahon is a true athlete at heart. Although he is good at almost any sport, football is his passion and he makes his presence known on the field. Prince Jahon is the oldest of the Royal Godchildren. He will be the one tearing up the dance floor at the reception!
Tylan is definitely a mini princess to remember. She can melt your heart with her smile but also keep you going with her demands. She's a busy little one and looking forward to wave her hand at the crowd. Although this mini princess is too small to know what her title entails, she is big enough to steal the show. Her favorite princess is Sophia which is one of the newest princesses. She may not want any help walking down that aisle because she believes she truly rules the world.
Taylor is a little princess who's eager be apart of the BIG day. She may not know the true meaning behind the fairytale that she will be apart of but she's ready! You can just tell this Princess when and wear and she's there! She enjoys everything that includes being a princess from the dresses, to the heels, to the makeup and even to the crown. Her favorite princess changes once a month but her latest is Princess Belle. This princess may pretend she's shy but when the lights and cameras are on, it's action time. We may have to make sure she knows that she's not the Bride.
Joniyah is the oldest of all princesses. She's going to keep these little and mini princesses in line. She already exemplifies what it means to be a princess. Her talent includes dancing and singing. She also has beauty and brains. Miss Joniyah has no favorite princess because she loves them all. She is so excited to lead these beautiful ladies down the aisle. Don't be surprise if you see her twirl once or twice.
Branyla is the feistiest of the flower princesses. She may be small but she is a giant at heart! This fun little princess has a twin who helps balance her out. Her favorite Disney Princess is Anna from Frozen! She will shine bright, like the star she is, at the wedding!
Me and Marlon has been friends since high school. He always treated me like a brother since the beginning and we are still running strong and keeping the family strong ever since.
Marlon and Quisha I'm glad you two found each other, it's very rare to find someone to grow and build a life with. I'm happy for the both of you and wish you two a very great marriage God Bless.
"I only agreed to be a part of the wedding to dress up" Lol
Where do I start with Alieon? How did we get here?
Our 1st time meeting was at our job in 2007. We couldn't stand each other. That new guy with the permed hair and ponytails aggravated me. Long story short.. 4 months of mean mugging and side eyeing turned into 10 years of loyalty, laughter, growth, counselling and a brother I can be stupid with....
Congrats on your new journey..
Keep giving us hope bro... I can't wait to throw rice at you guys! Love!
I've known Marlon for a few years now and since day one he has always welcomed me. Marlon has become one of my best friends and I'm proud to call him my brother. I'm so happy for Marlon and Quishia, they both are truly amazing people and deserve eternal happiness with each other.
To the bride the most beautiful, hard working, dedicated, big hearted, giving, forgiving and understanding person who's ever walked the planet earth God has finally aligned your stars for you and brought you the missing puzzle piece to your life's ensemble.
To the groom you’re a great person also hard working and dedicated, hilarious, but most importantly the perfect match for my sister who means the world to me. As a man you have my respect and if I would leave my sisters happiness in any man’s hands it'll be you Congratulations to you both‼
Congratulations to you on your success of becoming a loving husband. I'm so very proud of you. Everyday you surprise me with intelligent decisions! I just want to wish you and your future wife a happy marriage. Love always Lamel!
I’ve known Marlon since I was a 12 years old kid in the 7th grade. That was the start to a friendship of a life time. But I’m Wishing Marlon and Quishia a lifetime of love and happiness and Best wishes on this wonderful journey, as you all build your new lives together.
I’ve known Marlon since sixth grade and he is one of my closest friends. There are only ten people in life I would give a kidney to and he is one of them. I’m so glad he is getting married and he is one of the best men I know. He has a personality you won’t find anywhere else! We were like Keenan and Kel but way funnier. I’m glad to be back in his life and best wishes always.
I met Marlon through Dequishia. I am Quisha's older cousin but we were raised in the same household so our relationship is more of siblings. Of course, that means that I thoroughly examine anyone that I meet. My 1st interaction with Marlon was nothing special. However, I started seeing him more and more. I watched how my Aunt Kim and my grandmother interacted with him. We started to discuss sports and we had a few conversations about life. I paid attention to how he treated Quisha. I started seeing him at church. Over time My responsibilities as "big brother" started decreasing rapidly. I understood that was because he had taken over some of them. I realized how happy Quisha was. In conclusion, Marlon is a God fearing man, a working man, a kind man and a man of compassion. Those are all of the qualities a big brother wants his little sister husband to possess. My only advice is, keep God in your marriage and KEEP EVERYONE ELSE OUT! Best wishes and good luck!!!!
OK where do I start...
I've known Marlon since our Lincoln Elementary days where even back then we were bad once we got around each other... I think we met in one of our gym classes one day and ever since then we been nothing but the best of friends... But once we got to our high school days I started to see how strong and work oriented he became also during our adult life... I've seen this Man grow in ways I never thought he could because he was always stuck in his ways... IM so happy that he met his beautiful wife... Now as for the beautiful bride to be when I met her she showed me nothing but love and I thank you for that and also for coming into his life you have really changed that man...
I wish you all nothing but the best love is all over you all

1 Corinthians 13:13:
“And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love."
“Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, ..."
1 Corinthians 13:2:
“If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing."
1 Corinthians 13:4-5:
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs."
It is a privilege and honor to share a mother’s insight to a phenomenal, beautiful, highly intelligent, confident, woman of God. God blessed me with to gifts of life. The gift of becoming a parent to my Prince Darrius and Princess Dequishia gave me purpose in life. Princess Dequishia entered into this world on Wednesday, October 22, 1986 at 11:38pm. She arrived in dramatic fashion and commanded the stage ever since. As a baby, she was given the nicknames as Precious Joy and she was my “lil lamb”. She never like people to touch her hands and would let you know in dramatic fashion. Everyone joked that she was truly a princess. As a toddler, her nicknames evolved to Boogie, Boo-legs, Qui-qui, and Red. Dequishia was reading at the age of 3yrs and could speak Spanish extremely well. One day, she forgot how to speak English it was hilarious! Dequishia had no siblings for five years and no girl cousins. Dequishia was surrounded around five boy cousins. She was determined to beat them at every level of challenge and for the most part she did. This competitive spirit followed her throughout her life. She became a pee-wee cheerleader in Kindergarten and evolved to Captain of the Cheerleader team in high school. Dequishia won numerous awards throughout her school years for speech competitions, academic excellence and athleticisms. Dequishia is a goal oriented, organized individual that has achieved so many milestones in life. She was the 8th grade Salutatorian and delivered a knock out welcoming address that brought her family to tears. Her first day of high school, my Princess was dressed in a white Guess t-shirt, with a matching plaid Guess skirt and white gym shoes. She wanted her mommy to walk her into the school. She walked into the world of being an extraordinary teenager. She joined numerous clubs met life long friends.
As a parent, you want to protect your child from any hurt, disappointments, pain and the world. When she went away to college, my faith in God grew more that he would protect her and he did. It was financially challenging time but Dequishia never gave up. She graduated on the Dean’s list from Alabama A&M with a degree on IOG Psychology, 18 credit hour semester and working a full-time job. My Princess walked across that stage with a sense of accomplishment, confidence and my memory flashed back to all the laughs, life lessons good and bad that made this kind, big hearted, tenacious, vivacious, woman of God. My heart was overwhelmed and humbled because God allowed me to be the vessel to bring her into this life. Each journey the obstacles get hard and our faith becomes stronger. Dequishia achievements continued with a Master’s Degree in IO Psychology and concentration in Human Resource. Also, she passed a 5hr. test to receive PHR (Professional Human Resource) credentialing. My daughter began her own spiritual relationship with God after a difficult period in life. My Princess didn’t allow a difficult situation define or keep her down. She got up with God’s grace and mercy….and the rest is history. She is a Project manager for a wonderful company and enjoying all the perks.
I thank God that Dequishia and her brother, Darrius are so close. They definitely have each other’s back. I couldn’t be happier to have Marlon for my future son-in-law. They have been through growing pains but made a decision to become one in Jesus name. The love of all our lives is this bossy, sweet, diva dog name Sasha. She is all our boss and commands all the love, affection and attention. I encourage you and your best friend Marlon to always fall in love, support one another, laugh, and enjoy your journey in Jesus name. I thank you for all your love, support, encouragement and inspiration you give daily. P.S…..grandchild 2018 next goal.
On February 28, 2016 Marlon proved to Quishia that every once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love can give us a fairytale.
The night before, Quishia helped Marlon celebrate his 29th birthday. Quishia wanted to make sure Marlon kissed his 20's goodbye with a bang! They celebrated and partied the night away with friends.
Marlon & Quishia always celebrate their anniversary on the 28th, the day after Marlon's birthday. Quishia was all prepared to celebrate their anniversary, but she had no clue what was in store for her. Although they partied the night away, they made a vow to go to church the next morning. At the end of the church service, the congregation always come together, hold hands in a circle at the alter, and pray.
Before it was time to benedict, Pastor Brewer announced that Marlon had an announcement to make. At this point Quishia's mind was racing, but she wouldn't allow herself to believe that he was actually going to propose.
Marlon thanked everyone who came out and celebrated with him the night before, and then he turned to Quishia and thanked her for making his day special. Marlon told Quishia that she always make him feel special and told her how much he loves her.
Marlon proceeded to get down on one knee. It wasn’t until that very second that Quishia allowed her heart to finally believe what was happening before her very eyes. Marlon asked Quishia to marry him in the house of the Lord, in front of all her family...and she said YES!!!!
Just like a true fairytale, a horse and carriage ride to a romantic getaway started the beginning of #aFairySledgeTale

Sasha is the apple of Marlon & Quishia's eyes. She has a personality out of this world, but to know her is to love her.
This royal pooch wasn't born with a silver spoon and has beaten the odds time and time again.
Sasha was born on May 20, 2008 in Huntsville, AL. Sasha was a rescue dog that Quishia adopted while attending college. Sasha's condition would've been fatal if Quishia didn't nurse her back to health. Sasha & Quishia has been inseparable ever since. They are two peas in one pod. Sasha & Quishia would give their lives for each other.
Marlon has a natural love for dogs, and it took no time for Sasha to warm up to him. When Marlon accepted Sasha and all of her demanding crazy ways, Quishia knew he was a keeper!
Sasha still battles with health issues, including chronic allergies and diabetes, but she is the ultimate comeback kid! Quishia and Marlon loves her dearly and would not trade her for nothing in the world!
Marlon is a determined, strong-minded, realist with an old school soul! Marlon studied construction at South Suburban College, and started building his empire from there.
Marlon took an interest in construction at a young age. Watching his uncle remodel homes caught Marlon’s attention. He prayed one day he would be just as great as his role models in construction and as a man overall. Some things must run through the bloodline, because stating that Marlon is good with his hands is an understatement. Marlon has elevated his skills to another level, and in 2014 he single-handedly remodeled their first condo!
Marlon is a God fearing man who values loyalty, his relationship, and family. Marlon is very cool & calm gentleman who enjoys listening to old school hits and dusty music on the weekend. In his spare time he loves playing basketball, Call of Duty, and he is the master of the pool table. Marlon vows to love Quishia no matter what challenges they may face, and to take her as his best friend for life
Quishia is an outgoing, optimistic, hopeless romantic with a heart of gold. She is also an over thinker and psychoanalyze everything! You can blame it on her weird but intriguing major!
Quishia graduated with her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology, from Alabama A&M University. Upon completion of her Bachelor's program, she went on to earn her Master's degree in Industrial Organizational Psychology. Life is full of twist & turns because this Princess is currently work in the construction industry as a Project Manager. Ironically construction is a passion that Quishia & Marlon both share, and it was the glue that bonded them closer together.
Quishia truly values her religion, relationship, family and friendship. On her spare time she loves decorating, wine tasting, and watching her guilty pleasure TV shows! She absolutely LOVES Sasha & would give her the world! Quishia is excited about becoming Mrs. Sledge and she vows to help Marlon enjoy life and love him until the end of time.

Once upon a time, a boy met a girl. She gave him her hand & he held it tight. Together they set off down the unknown path in front of them. Sometimes they walked slowly; sometimes at a quicker pace. Sometimes they ran so fast it felt kind of like a never ending race. Whenever he would lose all hope, she would encourage him to keep going. Whenever she tripped, he was there to catch her fall. Sometime the path was so foggy and they didn't know which direction to go. Though they would occasionally lose their way, they never lost each other.
Welcome to our wedding website! We are excited to embark upon this new journey with the ones we love the most. Our love story is still in production, but we wanted to make sure our support team has a front row seat!
