The wedding photos were black and white.

He was black.

She was white.

The contrast was clearer than ever, his dark hands against her pale skin as they held one another close.

When they first talked about getting married, her mother worried that he was black, his-that she was white.

But it was clear that they cared about each other.

To them, that's all that mattered.

And in the photo, it was her beauty that shone-- his happiness, too.

It had nothing to do with color.

To Ty and Alex, it was more than perfect.

It was true love.
