Shantae and Bryan first crossed paths on the job while both were working for the same company.
It wasn’t long before the sparks began to fly and their office friendship became an office romance. When the time came for Bryan to take their relationship to the next level, the perfect proposal opportunity presented itself during a mother’s day dinner where Bryan asked Shantae to spend the rest of their lives together as husband and wife. Shantae and Bryan were married in an intimate and elegant ballroom wedding in Montgomery, Alabama.

Tell us how you met and all about the proposal. We first met during work where we were employed by the same company. For the proposal, it was the day before Mother’s Day, May 12, 2018, during a dinner at Bryan’s mother’s house where he asked me to be his wife.
