Marcus & Shandreka met at Ridgewood Park Elementary School in the 2nd grade. Marcus had the BIGGEST crush on Shandreka but Shandreka wasn’t convinced. Fast forward years later and they had their first date of dinner and a movie in Downtown Disney.
Marcus told Shandreka that he loved her in Elementary School. For him, it was “Love At First Sight”. It wasn’t until Shandreka noticed that Marcus had the same characteristics as her father. (i.e. spoiling her) lol, that she knew he was the one. Shandreka had always wanted God to bless her with a man like her father and in Marcus she has received that and so much more.
The proposal took place on December 31, 2014 during the New Years Eve Watch Night Service at their church. Towards the end of the service everyone was at the Alter praying and as people began to walk back to their seats, Marcus decided to grab the microphone and say a speech. In the speech he stated that going in 2015 he wanted to make some changes and that one of the changes he wanted to make was to make Ms. Shandreka Johnson is wife.
