Blis' and Brandon

How We Met: It started Spring of 2001 at the corner of  South Carrollton Ave. and South Claiborne Ave in New Orleans, LA.IMG_3616Blis’, her mother and little sister were standing at the streetcar stop. There was a group of guys doing the same thing. Blis’ happen to know one of them because he was one of her friend’s boyfriend so they spoke….. after finally getting on the streetcar her friend’s boyfriend  then came and sat behind her and told her that his friend Brandon thought she was cute, she brushed him off and told him “tell me something I  don’t know”, she was really not interested at all but still give him her number trying to be nice. Brandon wasted no time and called her later that night after the first conversation Blis thought he was the one well maybe not him but whomever had to be just like him. Brandon was very kind, well mannered and such a gentleman. They talked on phone for hours at a time everyday and used pet names towards each other (POOKIE). After a couple of years of friendship on May 23th, 2003 Brandon and Blis’ decided to turn their friendship into a little something more. Blis’ knew she could not let him go she actually felt like he was made just for her. Everything about him was just so right and well the rest is history. Since becoming a couple the two has started a family and are blessed with two handsome sons Brandon Jr. And Braylon. Now, after several (SEVERAL) years of dating, and praying for God to order their steps they are so excited to be getting married and starting their lives together as husband and wife.

FullSizeRenderHow He Asked: On December 19th At 11:15 pm while at Brandon’s surprise 30th birthday party given by his now fiancé, Brandon turned the surprise on her… after a minor sound malfunction the DJ started playing Thinking About You by Frank Ocean, Brandon just started dancing (Brandon doesn’t dance which made this a even better surprise). Joined by his stepfather, mother and brother. They danced and Brandon started singing the lyrics to the song “I remember how could I forget? How you feel? You know you were my first time. A new feel, it won’t get old, not in my soul, not in my spirit, keep it alive. We’ll so down this road til it turns from color to black and white. Or do you not think so far ahead cause I’ve been thinking bout forever.” Brandon then got on one knee and asked Blis’ “Will You Marry Me?” Of course she said YES! This proposal caught Blis’ by a total surprise…
