Yay! Shenisa and Steven’s wedding is here! They are such joyful people and we’ve loved being a part of their big day! Here’s more about Shenisa and Steven!
How did you meet?
Steven and I met through mutual friends. We would see each other out at different events and Steven was always that guy that would come say Hi. If I was at the bar he would order me a drink or even save me from guys I didn’t want to talk to. We became best friends and the rest and history. I had no clue after meeting Steven 6 years ago we would be getting married.
How did he propose?
Steven told me earlier in the week that we were going to go on a walk downtown on Friday night. He told me to dress comfy because we were going for a walk by the ConAgra fountains downtown. So Friday comes along and we go and park. I went to go feed the meter but it was broken so Steven had to move his car to another meter. Well, his car wouldn’t start. We asked a couple to help us and they were unsuccessful so we called for a tow. While we waited for our tow we went for a walk to kill time. I could tell Steven was upset but I figured it was because his car wouldn’t start. Halfway through our walk we stopped at a bench to talk about how crazy this date night had been. He got up for a second and fell back on a rock that was on the ground he held his leg and I of course just started laughing because this night was a FAIL. Until we sat back down on that bench and watched the water. A girl jogged by and Steven asked to take a picture of us to capture this evening. I was like, “Why? I look horrible in sweats.” We took about 3 pictures and then as she gave back the phone he asked her to take one more. He then got down on one and asked me to marry him. I was shocked! The girl gave back the phone and told us congratulations. When I looked at the pictures we had several of me smiling and Steven holding the ring box without me even noticing it. She also got our whole proposal on video. We are forever thankful to her. Steven and I didn’t know her. We then went to my parents house to celebrate the good news.
Where are you going for your honeymoon? Why did you choose it?
We are going to Pompano Beach, Flordia. Steven and I wanted to go somewhere in the states and warm. Steven has never been to Florida and I have never been to Pompano Beach so it will be a first for us both to enjoy.
What was your favorite vacation together?
Las Vegas! Steven and I went for his birthday! He had never been to Vegas and I had never stayed anywhere fancy in Vegas. His cousin works for the Venetian so we got to stay at their sister property the Palazzo and it was the best hotel. We loved Vegas so much that we go every year.
What are your favorite shared hobbies?
Steven and I love to shop together. He is my favorite shopping buddy. He lets me go into all of my stores and try on everything. That is how I knew he was the one!
Our favorite date night is Applebee’s and going to the movies.
What was the first thing you noticed about the groom?
The first thing I noticed about Steven was how caring he is. From the day I met him he has always looked out for me and anyone else around him.
What was the first thing you noticed about the bride?
I noticed how happy she is all the time. She is always smiling.
What is your favorite restaurant and dish at that restaurant?
