Markesha and Brandon

how we met

Brandon and I met at a popular nightclub here in Atlanta called Compound in August 2011. Brandon was already living in Atlanta but it was my very first time being in Atlanta. I came to Atlanta from Minnesota to visit my best friend for the weekend. I was dancing on the dance floor and he approached me and started dancing with me. We stayed side by side for the rest of the night.

how they asked

Brandon decided that he was going to propose to me during his mother’s 60th birthday party in Columbia, South Carolina in July 14th, 2018. My parents flew into town from Minneapolis, MN to attend the birthday gathering as well. His plan was to proposed to me while he’s doing a toast for his mom but before he got up, Brandon’s moms boyfriend stood up, gave a speech then proposed to his mother in front of family and friends….not knowing Brandon was about to do the same thing. Since Brandon’s mothers boyfriend proposed first, he decided to take me outside after the toast and proposed to be under the stars outside of the event. I was totally shocked because I’ve been wanting him to propose for so long and after his mom got engaged, she took the mic and said to me, “Your time is coming….be patient.” Not knowing he was about to propose any second.
