Shera and CJ
How We Met
While working at Starbucks in Target, I met CJ who was managing the front lanes. He was an extremely hard worker and so kind. One day while shopping with my cousin off the clock, I pointed CJ out and said, “I’m going to marry that guy one day”. After leaving Starbucks and working for a new company, I received a message from CJ. We started dating and new within just a couple of months that we would be married eventually.
How He Asked
While browsing The Knot’s list of venues out of curiosity, I came across The Louisisana Castle. It was love at first sight. I had grown up around castles as a little girl is Weisbaden, Germany, so I’d always dreamed of being married at a castle. We decided to check out the venue that coming weekend. While at the venue, my family started disappearing one by one until I was alone in the reception hall. My sweet mom asked me to show her the ceremony area outside the castle, so out of the castle and down the stairs we went when I looked up and saw my family gathered on the first landing. We stopped, and CJ grabbed my hand. As he knelt on the lawn in front of the castle, I burst into happy tears. My dreams were coming true!
