How We Met

Brandon and I were introduced to each other by his older sister, Simone. It was an October Sunday morning, when I visited her (their family’s) church, where I was starred at the entire service by Brandon. I wasn’t sure if he had his eye on me because I was a visitor or because he thought I was cute! Lol!! Later that afternoon, after the persuasion of his sister, I receive a text message from Brandon which later led into phone conversations. Three months later, on January 1, 2012, Brandon asked me to his girlfriend. We have been best friends ever since!

We both enjoy and love God, church, singing, family and traveling!

How He Asked

Brandon and I had both been wanting to go on a cruise, so we planned one for our birthday. We packed our suitcases and was headed to Cozumel, Mexico. The second night on the ship was Elegant Night for dinner. As we are walking down the stairs, Brandon asked if I want to take pictures with the photographer. Well, duh! Of course I did! After posing for several different shots sitting on the prop, Brandon nervously walks around with the biggest smile and gets on one knee…”Alisha Melanie Crawford, you know I…” is all I heard. I was so overwhelmed of the beautiful diamond ring in his hand, I couldn’t even focus. People stopped, clapped and watched in awe of this breath-taking moment. And this was it, the moment I had been praying which was to marry my best friend. May 3rd, 2016, Brandon Berry asked me, Alisha Crawford, to be his wife!

And of course, I said YES!!!!!!

A man who finds a wife finds treasure, and he receives favor from the Lord! Proverbs 18:22
