They had a very small wedding ceremony which included only 27 guests. Parnell, even though is currently working as an IT technician, used to be involved much in basketball back in his high school. Tamika loves the fact that his husband is also interested in basketball. Once in an interview with 13 Indianapolis, she said,

He’s obviously very attractive, but smart, intellectual. He played basketball, so being able to relate in that sense and being able to talk about other stuff outside of basketball and sports. We’re both very faith oriented.
