The 5pm Post – Vote Kareem and DeWayne to Win their Dream Wedding

The theme of the 5pm Post will change every day and per your suggestions will be a mix of philanthropic or simply fun things to do as well as random unique DC features and events. It’ll be a bit of a hodgepodge but if you have any suggestions, recommendations or photos capturing DC pride please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com.

“Dear PoP,

Kareem Murphy and DeWayne Davis of Maryland (formerly of the Petworth neighborhood) have been chosen as one of six deserving finalist couples in the national Freedom2Wed online contest.

You can see Kareem and DeWayne’s contest video submission here.

To win, they need the support and votes of the DC community. The general public can vote for Kareem and DeWayne until the end of September by going to vote here.

The couple met as fellow Howard University students in 1991, fell in love, and have been building a life together in the Washington, DC area for the past 19 years. The couple was one of the first in line for a marriage license in early March of this year when the District was afforded equal marriage rights but given the economic times, they have yet to celebrate a wedding with family and friends.

Freedom2Wed was conceived by a group of prominent Washington-area wedding vendors in honor of the passage of the DC Marriage Equality Act. The winning couple will receive the wedding of a lifetime, valued at over $100,000.”

Good luck Kareem and DeWayne!
