Lush white flowers paired with elegant decor in the beautiful ballroom created the perfect ambiance for Aquira & Brian’s glamorous North Carolina wedding.
How they 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 run with him, along with other people from work. Then we started hanging out as friends, and good times blossomed into a beautiful relationship! Since day one, we have enjoyed an amazing relationship. Brian has been the epitome of a great man! Our quiet gentle natures made us truly, a perfect match. This is why I knew early on that Brian was the ONE.
How he asked: 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, with a ring inside. And said “ the real ring is coming soon”. We stopped 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 and as we walked closer to the water; Brian got down on one knee. He asked “Aquira will you marry me?” I had no idea what was happening in that moment! I was so shocked!!! From there we begun 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 entire proposal from the hotel window. It meant so much to me that he had our parents in attendance for this special occasion. This was the very best day of my life! I’m thankful and blessed to experience a love like this!
