Richelle Grant & Cedric Williams
Though Richelle of Columbia, South Carolina, and Charleston native Cedric first crossed paths at the University of South Carolina, where she was a cheerleader and he was a football player, it wasn’t until he friended her on Facebook seven years later that they began dating. With Richelle working as choreographer and manager for the Carolina Panthers Cheerleaders in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Cedric living throughout the South, the couple dated long distance for more than a year before moving together to Newberry, South Carolina. Less than 12 months later, after his 2012 season opener as a football coach for Newberry College, Cedric proposed. The couple wed at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church downtown and held a reception at Charleston Place, where they celebrated with family and friends, including Cedric’s former mentor, Gamecock Coach Lou Holtz.
