He’s Got Game
Kirvis wanted a perfect surprise proposal. He asked Melissa to pick him up at his place for the basketball game and set up a beautiful presentation for her when she walked inside. Unfortunately she was so worried about making it to the game on time, she didn’t see it! She ran inside, past his creative work and straight up the stairs. Kirvis had to improvise a little. He acted like he was going to the car. He closed the front door behind him, but waited just outside. Melissa saw his presentation of love as she raced back downstairs. He heard Melissa’s surprised screams of excitement and went inside to pour his heart out to her on one knee. She said YES!
The couple said their “I Do’s” at the Beaumont Event Center with it’s gorgeous outdoor cascading waterfall and elegant atmosphere. Mrs. Paulette Lewis from Platinum Designs helped coordinate their dream wedding. Melissa wore a striking Maggie Sottero dress; Debbie’s Delights made the cake. The couple ended their celebration by heading to New Orleans, LA for their honeymoon.
Do your research and plan ahead! Also, find a great planner that you TRUST and is there to please you! That helped me tremendously. Waiting until the last minute can add unneeded stress and worry to your life and who needs that! I knew what I wanted and relayed it to my Coordinator and she handled it from there. I had minimal stress and the Bridezilla never came out! I truly enjoyed planning my wedding with the help of my Mom and Coordinator Lewis.
