Having met in elementary school, today’s engaged couple have known each other for many many years, since the 2nd grade to be exact. How cute is that?! Marcus knew immediately but it took Shandreka a while to be convinced. Ultimately, Marcus having the same characteristics as her Dad made her fall for him. See how the team at Opulent Artistic Imagery captured their love story below!
From the Photographer:
“Marcus & Shandreka met at Ridgewood Park Elementary School in the 2nd grade. Marcus had the BIGGEST crush on Shandreka but Shandreka wasn’t convinced that Marcus was the one. For their first date they went to Downtown Disney to a dinner and a movie.Marcus knew that Shandreka was the one since Elementary School when he told Shandreka that he loved her. According to Marcus there is a thing called “Love At First Sight”.Shandreka knew that Marcus was the one when she noticed that he had the same characteristics like her father. (i.e. spoiling her) lol. Shandreka has always wanted God to bless her with a man like her father, God has blessed her with a MAN like her father and more. The proposal took place on New Years Eve Watch Night Service at church. Towards the end of the service everyone was at the Alter praying and as everyone was walking back to their seats Mr. Jones decided to grab the microphone and he began to talk about going into the new year(2015) that he wanted to make change. And one of the changes he wanted to make was to make Ms. Shandreka Johnson is wife.”
