Hello there! Sorry for the break in blog posts. It was extremely busy over the past two months. I am excited to feature Briona and Kris on the blog today! I met both of them for the first time on the day of the shoot and everything with them was just so effortless. I simply love their laid back and fun attitude. They are true friends and you can’t go wrong with that! It was so cold on the day of the shoot and i commend Briona and Kris for making it look like it was 70 degrees..lol. Congrats on your engagement guys! Check out how they met and proposal story below!
How we met
Kris and I went to college together at Alabama State University. We both are members of the Divine 9. He is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi and I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha. Although we never actually met in college, we knew who each other was because of the Greek affiliation. One random day I received a message on the infamous facebook and it stated verbatim “You are amazingly beautiful”. I thought to myself, “he must tell this to every pretty girl on facebook”. That’s how it all began. I didn’t recognize him at first because he lost a lot of weight and once I facebooked snooped…it all came back to me. Lol We dated a year and a half before he popped the question!
June 28th, 2014. Kris, my immediate family and I all went to a local baseball game (Birmingham Barons) in Birmingham, Al. Maybe…around the bottom of the 3rd inning I look at the jumbotron and saw that they were doing “Sweetheart of the game”, then I saw myself on camera. By that time I was so embarrassed! I was laughing and trying to hide my face! Then the guy that’s always talking on the mic and the mascot came walking up to me. They handed me a dozen roses and gave Kris the mic. He then got down on his knee and proposed right there…meanwhile it was all being shown on jumbotron! It was the sweetest thing ever! So after he proposed we were about to leave the game and all I saw was a group of ppl running towards me! He had all of my friends and family there!! But the total shocker was that he flew my best friend, that lives in California out to be a part of everything! I could not stop crying!! It was beyond perfect!!
