Ashleigh (Whitby) Coffie and Toniah Paryo Gray have been best friends for over twenty years. So when Ashleigh noticed a lack of Black representation in the wedding podcast space after getting engaged, she asked Toniah (also her MOH) to start a wedding podcast with her. They sought to create a podcast for Black brides, grooms, bridal parties, and wedding vendors that highlights these wonderful individuals and educates about the nuances within the wedding industry and planning your own. After some initial brainstorming, the Black Wedding Podcast by Hue I Do was born and officially launched in August 2019. In January 2020, the podcast name was changed to Hue I Do Wedding Podcast.
In August 2022, Hue I Do expanded to become a podcast for wives (and wives-to-be) about marriage, weddings, & life. As married women, we want to also include discussions around the multifaceted wife — a partner, daughter, friend, and sometimes sibling, mother, professional, patient, etc.
