On February 26th, 2017, Tanisha and Tony renewed their vows in a ceremony and reception held at Top of the Town in Arlington, Virginia. The vow renewal featured shades of purple, and floral decor. The candle light and panoramic windows, with views of Washington, DC, created a soft and romantic setting.
Tanisha and Tony met online in 2010. They had an instant connection and became inseparable. They enjoyed even the simple things like watching movies together and making memories through their travels.
At the age of twenty-one, Tony was diagnosed with end stage renal disease. His quality of life improved in 1994 when he received a kidney transplant. However, in 2012, the transplant failed. He has been undergoing dialysis three times a week since the transplant failed. Tony received his kidney cancer diagnosis in 2016, for which he is undergoing treatment. Tanisha and Tony knew they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together, no matter how long that was, and were originally married by the Justice of Peace.
Close friends and family watched as the couple recommitted themselves to each other through personal vows. There were smiles all around as the couple danced, laughed, and cut their cake together. On this day, the love they have for each other was the focus. The illness and all they have endured was put aside.
