Some beauty is sublime….it transcends words….Shahara has just such a beauty….she is graceful and laughs easily…as though her heart dictates her movements….this must be one of the reasons she caught the eye and heart of NBA star Elton Brand….their courtship started long ago & continues strong today….they exchanged wedding vows at the divine Biltmore Estate in North Carolina….their wedding & all the details were beautifully executed by Lisa Vorce of Oh, How Charming…..Shahara wore a beautiful Monique Lhuillier dress that seemed to be made just for her body…Elton wore a gorgeous smile all day long…..the two committed theirlives to each other under the warm southern sky….and recently welcomed their first child into the world….just as beauty can be sublime, so can love…and their love is simply sublime….20,000 kisses later and counting…..


kiss & tell
“Our first kiss was 10 years ago…over an estimated 20,000 kisses ago… “good morning”, “good night”, “see ya later”, “honey, you’re home!”, “I love you”, “thank you honey”, “you’re so sweet”…you name it, we kissed it.  Some may say the quality of a kiss is better than the quantity.  I would normally agree, but fortunately I don’t have to make that distinction with the kisses from my love. Each was more delicious than the last.  Even with the less exciting “I’m sorry, honey” and the “it’s ok” kisses, I felt love rooted in each one.  This is one of the defining things about our relationship, and that which I will look forward to in the next 10 years, and in 50 years when we will perhaps mark our 1,020,000th kiss.”

-Shahara Brand
