Roderick & Davalynn Patton

How Did You Meet?
Roderick and Davalynn began their love story in 2009 after meeting one Friday night during a youth service at Davalynn’s fathers church. After what was then a simple conversation between Roderick and Davalynn (as she thought), Roderick knew at that moment she was someone special. “That night, I (Roderick) searched through social media networks to find her. I needed to get her attention. After awhile, our friendship became deeper”, says Roderick.

Before we both knew it, days became weeks, weeks became months, & months became years. The rest was indeed history as our love only blossomed from there. “Of course, she played hard to get, but I continued to pursue and now we are here together”, says Roderick.

They both believe that nothing can be done unless God is in the center of it all. Being both birthed into families of Pentecostal leaders, their faith in God is a priority.

After four years of dating, Roderick proposed to Davalynn on a Sunday evening October 4,2015 with close family surrounded at the Wyndham Garden Hotel in Trenton, NJ. They immediately listed the bridal party which consisted of 41 people (14 Bridesmaids, 14 Groomsmen, 5 Ring Security, & 6 Flower Girls). With the creative minds of both the Bride & Groom,  they celebrated the nuptials in a very elegant way.

The couple selected Fisher’s Tudor House in Bensalem, Pennsylvania. The knot was tied on September 3rd, 2016 @ 2:00pm in the afternoon. This literary loving couple’s romantic ceremony was kicked off without a hitch due to the help of several coterie members, including Celebrity Singer Jesse Campbell from “The Voice”, Gospel Rap Artist Prayz1, Levi Feeni Photography, Justin Rollins from Philly Sound and Lighting, Jasmine Harris from Kingdom Cuts, Candayce Johnson from Glam Candy MUA. The couple dare not leave out the love and support from their parents Bishop D.C. Thomas Sr. & Pastor Stephanie Thomas, Miss. Charlene Patton, & Professor Willie T. Phillips Jr.
