Ebony and Ranell

How We Met

We met at a known Night Club in Tallahassee, Fl named Top Flite. I was there for my best friends birthday weekend and the moment we walked in it was love at first sight. My fiancé was eating chicken and we laid eyes on each other but I was to shy to approach him.

So after a few sips of my drink I was going to build up the courage to talk to him but he got up from the table to get another drink. The night went on and I did not see him the whole night.

Right before the club was going to close my best friend was talking to a gentlemen which happened to be my fiancé’s friend so when he was approaching his friend so they can leave the club there I was and we looked at each other and hugged as if we have known each other for years. From that night we have been inseparable.

How He Asked

The proposal initially was going to be in New Orleans the end of July during my fiancé’s family reunion, but it happened 2 weeks prior on the 15th of July. Earlier in the day on July 15th my Fiancé picked up his 5 year old daughter from school and out of the blue she asked him if he was going to marry me.

He was shocked and asked what made her say that. She replied “Daddy she is the one for you “. Not knowing he had already purchased the ring and had intentions to propose soon. The ring was burning a whole in his safe and he longer could wait until the family reunion and when I got from the gym in my workout clothes we went into the room and was discussing life and future plans and before I knew it he was on one knee asking for my hand in marriage and wanting to spend the rest of his life with his best friend. I was completely out of my element because I told him that if he proposes make sure I’m dressed up and my hair and nails are done. But he followed his heart and what God allowed his daughter to confirm that I am the one for him and he proposed at the perfect time.
