Love is Love: Check Out This Delta + Zeta Marriage Proposal Video


Love is love.

We receive many  great proposal videos from members of Black fraternities and sororities every month and we try to highlight those which stand out the most. Today is National Coming Out Day and we at Watch The Yard received a submission from a member of Delta Sigma The proposing to her girlfriend of Zeta Phi Beta in Texas.

In the video, Jalessa(Zeta) and Raven(Delta) are doing a couples photoshoot on a baseball field as the sun is going down. They take a break to look at some of the shots they had done so far and thats when she pops the question. We won’t spoil how it is done, you can check out the video below to watch it yourself.

National Coming Out Day celebrates its 29th anniversary today (Oct 11) and since 1988, it has helped foster a safer world for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people by raising awareness of the community, continuing to affirm their lives, worth and dignity.

The proposal video was shot by Zeta Phi Beta photographer Latashia Gordon who told us:

“I shot this in knowing that some will have positive feed back and others with not so much of positive feedback. I hope everyone sees the love they have for one another rather than just the organizations.”

You can tell by just watching this video that these two love each other to the moon and back.

This Adorable Alpha + AKA “Save The Date” Video Will Make Your Day!

There is nothing like the love between an AKA and an Alpha!

We at Watch The Yard recently came across yet another great Black fraternity/sorority Save The Date video and we knew that we had to post it ASAP! The groom in the video, Chris, is a Spring 08 initiate of the Xi Xi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha and the bride, Deidra, is a Fall 2011 initiate of the Lambda Pi Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha. The couple met at Jacksonville State University in Alabama.

According to their wedding website,

“Deidra and Chris first met in Spring 2008 on the campus of Jacksonville State University by Houston Cole Library. Chris was so numb to her beauty, he didn’t even get a chance to say hi. A few years later Deidra and Chris met again with the help of a mutual friend. This was the first time Chris actually said hi. Chris and Deidra’s friendship started that night, from small sweet Direct Messages on social media to small sweet conversation through text message. Chris and Deidra spent a lot of time getting to know each other and the rest is History…”

The video which was shot by Media Reflections, shows both the classy and the turnt up sides of the couple and we simply love it. Make sure to watch until the end to see their stroll to surprise!
