About Us

Our Story

Chris and Tashana met in Jacksonville, AL. in May 2010. They were both about to graduate college in the fall and worked at Struts. He worked at the Struts Restaurant in Gadsden but volunteered one night to help out at the Jacksonville location where they met for the very first time. When Chris arrived to work, he designated Tashana to be his bar.... The two immediately hit it off and decided to meet up with some mutual friends after work to play a couple games of pool, that Chris somehow won? :) With Tashana's competitive nature she couldn't stand to lose so of course the two wound up getting together several times there after to play again. The two later started dating and have been inseparable ever since.

In the Fall of 2010 they both graduated college together from Jacksonville State University. That fall Tashana flew to New York to suprise Chris, who was up visiting family for christmas. Little did she know she would be meeting her future family in law with them all under the impression that she was Black Stripper named "Freaky Sheiki" ... Needless to say that was not the case at all but according to Chris that was his way to get back at Tashana for telling her parents about a speedo contest he had entered several weeks before. And it worked :) Funny thing is, I knew then they were perfect for each other. I have never seen a couple able to cut up and at the same time compliment each other so well.

Since then, Chris and Tashana purchased their first home together in Villa Rica, Ga. February 1, 2012 and couldn't be happier together.

About Us

Proposal

21 months after Chris and Tashana met, Chris decided to propose in their new home together. With some assistance from good friends he was able to keep it a secret from her for months. Initially Chris wanted to get both of their families over for a cookout and ask permission for Tashana's hand in marriage. However, with everyone's busy work schedule he never could quite get everyone together. So he decided to take Tashana out for a nice dinner and propose there. But everytime he mentioned going out to eat for dinner she shot him down saying "We need to save money." Needless to say she had no idea why he was so persistent on going out to dinner, otherwise she would have been all for it! After exhausting several options, Chris remembered Tashana pointing out a full length mirror that opened up into a jewelry box that she absolutely loved. On February 22, 2012 Chris went and bought the jewelry box mirror and put it together without her knowledge while she was at work all day. He then called her Dad in Wisconsin and stopped by her parents house to ask for their persmission to marry their daughter. Little did he know, her parents were already expecting the talk and placed a gun on the kitchen counter just to scare him when he walked in. Chris very nervously asked for their approval and willingly Tashana's parents gave him their blessing. At 2 A.M. on the morning of February 23, 2012 Tashana returned home from work to find Chris was still awake. When she entered the bedroom, Chris turned the light on to surprise her with the jewelry box mirror she had wanted. Tashana immediately went over to the corner of the room to look at it. When she turned around to thank him, he was behind her on one knee holding the ring. Tashana of Course said "YES" and the rest is history.

We hope that you will all be present on May 25, 2013 to witness them say I DO! Let the count down begin....
