Sometimes love happens when you least expect it. Such is the case with Shante & James. Shante was on a business trip to Chicago for her Selah Cosmetics beauty line when she was introduced to James through one of his family members. He showed them around his city and the rest (as they say) was history! Read the story below.
Bride to Be: Shante Walker, CEO of Selah Cosmetics
Groom to Be: James Campbell: Chicago Police Officer
Wedding Date: August 2, 2014
Wedding Location: Atlanta, Ga
How They Met (in her words):
We met through my former makeup artist (his cousin), during a business trip to Chicago. He graciously allowed us stayed at his residence during our trip, after the fashion show that Selah Cosmetics sponsored, he gave us an sort of guided tour of his home town. Funny thing though, we never noticed one another as a potential mate, until my very last day in the windy city. Never knew how much we had in common until it was brought up from his cousin, so that’s when she (his cousin) decided to work her magic (and God used her as an instrument to fulfill his will) by playing match maker and the rest is history………….
The Proposal (in his words):
How can I explain how much God has blessed me. How can I describe the feeling that came over me when she said yes…….. My fiancee Shante (of New York) visited me in Chicago. I told her that I loved her and I wanted to be with her for the rest of my life. This was done at a restaurant in the Chicago/Hyde Park area known as “Chant”……. This restaurant is of great significance because this is where we discovered each other not as just friends, but something more than “Friends”. It is where God took the veil from our eyes. Now, I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend, my soul mate, my world.
Nice job with the ring James!! ♥
Thanks so much to Shante & James for sharing their proposal story. We look forward to featuring your wedding!! (hint, hint)
