This couple just took the words “Black love” to a whole new level as they’ve graduated from medical school and tied the knot all within one week, Black Enterprise reports.
On May 15, they became husband and wife. By May 21, the two earned their degrees from the Tennessee historically Black Meharry Medical College. Now, they can be called Mr. and Mrs. Johnson plus Dr. Dwight Johnson II and Dr. Taylor Brooks (what a feat, huh?).
According to their wedding registry, the pair met during their time at school through a mutual friend and it was love at first sight. Their connection led them to dates that ranged from library connections as well as dinner and bowling before Dwight finally popped the question, asking Taylor to be his girlfriend. At the time, he also asked her to accompany him to their med school prom in a “Love and Basketball” inspired proposal, which featured tunes from Ginuwine in the background.
Love At First Sight
Dwight shared that he was instantly captivated by Taylor’s beauty and kindness. Fast forward to now, and the couple has so much to celebrate with a career and marriage ahead of them.
When you get married and graduate medschool the same week 🙌🏾 🙌🏾

“So much to be thankful for in this past week,” said Dwight in a post to Twitter. “I was able to marry my best friend and then graduate as physicians together just 6 days later. God is so good. This is what #BlackLove mixed with #BlackExcellence looks like when you always keep God at the center of your life.”
The Journey Continues
Now that the Johnsons have officially tied the knot and earned degrees from medical school, they won’t be far apart in their new residency journey.
Taylor received a a physician of psychiatry degree and Dwight received his doctor of medicine degree in obstetrics and gynecology. They’ll take a trek toward the nation’s capital to complete the next step in their medical field journey.
Dwight matched with Howard University College of Medicine, and Taylor won’t be too far away, having done so with the University of Maryland.
