Laurel and Marcus
How We Met
Marcus and I met as summer interns at a law firm in Summer 2011. We quickly became friends, but drifted apart when we went back to our respective law schools. Fast forward to 2013, when Marcus and I started working at the same law firm. We reconnected and started hanging out. At first, I was hesitant to date Marcus because we worked at the same firm… But he eventually won me over with his funny personality and good looks! Still, we kept (or tried to keep) our relationship under wraps because we were junior associates at the same firm. However, we were not very good at being sneaky because soon everyone knew we were dating. It was the worst kept secret. Luckily, everyone was very supportive of our relationship, and now of our engagement! We cannot wait to be married!
How He Asked
Marcus is basically the Wedding Rapper (like the Wedding Singer, but rapping). He has rapped in multiple friends’ weddings and for other events as well. Of course, I thought a little performance might be in store when he finally proposed, but Marcus (with the help of family and friends) managed to surprise me and exceed all my expectations! He performed the perfect rapping & singing proposal including songs from Hamilton, Chance the Rapper, and Newsies (Marcus and I love musicals). Marcus’s father and brother even assisted with the proposal (and were so cute)! Definitely a day we will never forget, and I cannot wait to marry Marcus! Not sure how he can top this one at our wedding… but stay tuned!
