I’m Going To Make You Love Me | NaturalHairBride
Tell us how you met and about the proposal:Â
How we met: My fiance’ and I met our Sophomore year at Georgia State University. Fate would have it that we both stayed on the same floor. It was move in day, I was getting off the elevator as he was getting on. He asked if I was staying on this floor and what my name was, completely missing his elevator ride down. I tried to make it clear that I wasn’t interested in being a friend of his. However, he remained persistent. Finally, he caught the elevator down and his parting words were “I’m going to make you love me.” Little did I know he would hold true to his word. Time went by and we developed a “love-hate” friendship until one day he asked me on a date. After a few dates, we decided to become serious and it’s been an amazing journey since. 3 years & counting
The Proposal: My fiance’ had my father request a specific restaurant, Yardhouse at Atlantic Station, for me to take him on Father’s Day, June 21,2015. My dad was on his phone the entire time at lunch which is very rare. and he took 2-3 restroom breaks for about 10 minutes each. Then he asked me to take him to Kilwin’s (my favorite ice cream place which also happens to be at Atlantic Station) and he was really adamant about going. So we go to Kilwin’s, In walked my 2 best friends (one who came down from Kentucky for the weekend). Then another good friend of mine walked in and they all were saying “Happy Father’s Day.” I’m like “how in the world did the 3 of them all randomly end up here at the same time with me?” My mom walked in (by this time, I was crying uncontrollably), his family members, more of our friends, even my supervisor (who I was in the middle of emailing about work ), co-workers and last, but certainly not least, my lovely fiance’. He announced to the store that he wanted to take my hand in marriage, kneeled and asked me to be his queen forever. It was so amazing and one of the greatest moments of our lives- it’s a moment that still brings me to tears!!!
What is your best memory from your wedding day:
My favorite memory was watching the expression on my dad’s face during the first look…. I’ve never seen him cry before so it made me emotional.
Describe your dress:
I wanted a dress that was simple, yet beautiful. I searched millions of dresses and saved a ton to my Pinterest board. I prayed and prayed before my first dress shopping and asked God to have my dress waiting on my first go round. When I knew I would be going to Anya Bridal for my first dress shopping experience, I looked up their catalog. I took screenshots of so many dresses so that I would be able to show them my vision. I got there with my wedding party (only the ladies of course) and tried on about 4 dresses. The 5th dress was everything I wanted. I was so happy and although everyone wanted me to go to another place “just in case,” I realized this was an answered prayer and decided to go with that dress. My thinking was that I would probably be able to find a dress I liked/loved anywhere so why waste time? I found a dress that was in my budget and that I loved!
