Karen and Johnnie’s love story began when they introduced by mutual friends at a gathering.
Both feeling the natural chemistry between them, it wasn’t long before they were enjoying a classic first date of dinner and a movie. That first date led to another, and another before they both realized love was in the air. Soon Johnnie was dreaming of their perfect proposal, deciding to ask Karen for her hand in marriage at their favorite restaurant. They are looking forward to saying “I do” in a beautiful plantation ceremony in Jacksonville.
