Ladies, I know there is a lot of internal and external pressure to be married and have kids, all before your 30th birthday. But that’s not everybody’s story. And frankly, there is plenty of life and love after 30 years old. If you don’t believe me, you need look no further than Shirley Strawberry.
Strawberry, the relationship expert and co-host on Steve Harvey’s popular morning show is well past 30, and married Ernesto Williams, 50, on Friday.
The couple got engaged last summer when Ernesto proposed to Shirley live on the radio.
In case you couldn’t really tell from the video, Ernesto is a very nice looking man. He and Shirley just so happened to get married on his birthday, January 10; and before they tied the knot, Shirley posted this picture in tribute to him, where we can fully see what he’s got going on.
Williams is an entrepreneur, whose businesses have been featured in The New York Times and other publications. Williams has been a barber for over 20 years and has managed to create some pretty lucrative business platforms as a result, including “The 24 Hour Barber Shop.”
Shirley did very well for herself.
So now that we know what Shirley’s working with, check out the pictures and videos from the wedding.
Shirley wasn’t the only one who showed up to the venue in style. Ernesto showed his wedding day ride to his Instagram followers.
The ceremony space. Beautiful!
Steve and Shirley are more than just coworkers. She entrusted Harvey with the responsibility of walking her down the aisle. That’s a pretty big deal.
Ernesto was also thrilled to have his daughter and granddaughter in the wedding.
Sheridyn, Shirley’s daughter, was her maid of honor.
Instead of keeping the kiss to a minimal peck, these two–or Ernesto–went all out. #yolo
Watch that hand!
The couple were married by Williams’ mentor for the past seven years.
Everyone loves to see a couple commit themselves to one another in an beautiful ceremony. But for the guests, the most memorable part of any wedding is the reception. And I’m sure with Kem providing the score for your first dance, it’ll likely be a reception people won’t soon forget.
Of course there was cake.
Can’t think of a more appropriate song for a cake cutting than Tupac and Jodeci’s “How Do You Want It?”
This video is really dark but the fact that someone told him not to get her pregnant was just too delicious not to include.
We’re very happy for Shirley and her new husband, Ernesto! Congratulations to this new couple!
