Aquira and Brian
How We Met
Brian and I both have degrees in biology and met while working for Laboratory Corporation of America. Brian first approached me about doing a 5K with him, as well as others from work. Then we started hanging out as friends, and our good times blossomed into a beautiful relationship. Since day one, Brian and I have had an overall amazing relationship!! Brian has showered me with many flowers and several other just because gifts. Brian has made it his priority to make my commands his desires, and he does it all with a smile! This is why I knew early on that Brian was the ONE. Our quiet gentle natures were truly a perfect match!
How He Asked
Brian proposed on November 5, 2016 on Wrightsville Beach. We were walking on the beach, when Brian started to profess his love for me. Then he pulled out a beautiful Pandora charm of a little ring box, that opened with a ring inside. We stopped walking, and he added the Pandora charm to my bracelet. We continued to walk along the beach, and a lady walked up to us, saying, “I’m a freelance photographer. Do you mind if I take some pictures of you..” I looked at Brian, and said, “Like always, I’m down for a picture, but only if you want to.” So we started taking pictures! As we got closer to the water, Brian got down on one knee, and said, “Aquira will you marry me.” I had no idea what was happening in that moment!
I was so shocked!!! So I think I said, “Yes”!
But either way, he knew my answer was without a doubt “YES”!!! The photographer continued to take pictures of us, once I got my bling!! Then we started to walk towards the hotel from the beach, and Brian said, “I know you want to call and tell your Mom.” As I was talking to my Mom, our parents walked out of the hotel. They had been watching the whole proposal from the hotel window!!! It meant so much to me that Brian had our parents there. We all had a nice dinner together at the Shell Island Resort, where my future father- in- law is the Executive Chef!!! Brian and I stayed in a beautiful Oceanfront Suite that night, at the Shell Island Resort. He had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in the room when we arrived!!! Brian put a lot of thought into planning this special proposal for me, and it was my dream come true!!! This was the very best day of my life!!! I’m thankful and blessed to experience a love like this in my lifetime.
