Marcel Williams and Shayna Jefferson had a breathtaking engagement session at the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, Florida. The stunning couple’s e-session was captured by Nate Veal Photography. Marcel shares some details on how they met and the proposal:
How They Met
“My fiance, Shayna and I were introduced to each other through my mom. My mom was at work, closing out a case that involved her taking a juvenile to a local hospital, where Shayna works. Intuition told my mom that Shayna and I would make a great couple. It took a little convincing, and a stamp of approval from her co-workers listening in, but she decided to give me a chance. We went on a few dates and we’ve never looked back!”
“For this special moment, I chartered a boat for a private, sunset dinner cruise. I prepared cherry chili salmon, asparagus, and wild rice. I bought her favorite wine, Bartenura moscato. We arrived at the docks promptly at 5:00 pm to set sail for our 3 hour cruise. I had already downloaded old school R&B, hits and oldies, and even some of our favorites for our entertainment. It seemed like time went by so fast after we ate, and it was time for the biggest moment in our lives. I planned to propose at exactly 7:30 pm, right at sunset. At 7:28 pm I read a poem detailing exactly how I felt about her. After she literally melted in front of me, I got down on one knee and asked her to be my wife. That night made me the most proud man on Earth. I couldn’t believe that this woman, beautiful inside and out, actually said yes to me! I just think about how it would not have been possible, if it weren’t for my mom’s intuition. I guess a mother really knows best!”
The Coordinated Bride agrees; mother knows best. It’s evident that these two are meant for each other. Let’s get to the pics…shall we?
