Shekedra and Byron

How We Met

We met about 5 years ago at a church event. As soon as he walked through the door, I instantly knew he was mine! :-) I asked one of his friends about him and we swapped numbers and that was all she wrote!! I instantly knew this was who God sent to me….my “BOAZ!” ;-)

how they asked

Well, he purchased tickets to the Festival of Praise concert that was taking place at the Greensboro Coliseum on October 25, 2015. When we arrived, someone came to us and said we had been chosen to take a selfie on stage with each of our favorite artist! I was elated! When I got on stage, they allowed me to take a selfie with Fred Hammond (my favorite gospel singer!) and after I was done they told us to remain on stage. Fred Hammond grabbed the mic and turned to the audience and said, “I feel love in the air, do you guys feel love in the air?” Byron (my fiancé) was handed the mic and at that time, he got on one knee in front of over 6,000 people!!!!! It was truly the perfect proposal! Several news and media outlets have been sharing our story!!!!! My fairytale has become reality!
