We absolutely LOVED getting to work with Shareka and Carlos for their big day. We were introduced by La’Toia from Beyond the Veil Event Planning and instantly felt like family. We laughed and talk all things wedding over lunch and got to hear how this power couple fell in love. Did I forget to mention how fit and strong these two are…..like really strong!
In 2013, Shareka decided to join the Navy and as fate would have it, Carlos was a recruiter at the station she went to. They realized that they both had a passion for fitness and instantly became friends. After Shareka returned from basic training, Carlos asked her out on a date and the two have been inseparable ever since. Carlos asked for permission to propose to Shareka at his sister’s baby shower because he wanted as much family there as possible! Carlos’ family, as well as Shareka’s mother and best friend, each greeted Shareka with a single red rose while forming a single line. The last person at the end of the line was Carlos. He dropped to one knee and asked Shareka to be his wife!
This wedding was so beautiful….and we weren’t the only ones who felt this. Click here to see their story published in Black Bride Magazine online.
