Bishop T.D. Jakes youngest daughter, Sarah Dionne Jakes, recently got married. Essence Magazine was there to witness the beautiful wedding. Sarah, 19, married her college sweetheart, Robert Henson, 22, in an extravagent ceremony held at the Potter’s House in Dalls on June 21.

“A lot of people have told us that we’re too young and asked Robert and me ‘Why don’t you wait?'” said Sarah, who accepted Robert’s proposal on Mother’s Day in 2007. “But when you feel like it’s right, love one another, and you’re ready, why wait?”

Robert agrees: “Everyone likes to say you have your whole life ahead of you, but tomorrow is not promised. I know I love her and we were ready.”

The couple was married by Bishop Noel Jones of the City of Refuge Church in Gardena, California. Sarah and Robert met a year and a half ago through a mutual friend at their alma mater, Texas Christian University in Fort Worth.

The enchanted ceremony was followed by a fairy-tale reception at her parents’ palatial 28-acre estate. Guests, including Tyler Perry, Dr. Phil McGraw, Emmitt Smith, Deion Sanders, Tom Joyner and wife Donna Richardson Joyner, Paula White, Michael Irvin and Emmit Smith, were on hand for the celebration.

“When I’m having a bad day, all Sarah has to do is smile, and everything is okay,” said Robert, a recent TCU grad, athlete and criminal justice major.

Sarah: “No matter what’s going on, he always does something goofy to make me laugh.”

SOOO SWEET! (tears)
