Ft. Lauderdale Engagement Session: Eric & LaVell
Eric and LaVell met in Atlanta on Nov. 28, 2012. Eric was there competing for a pageant and LaVell was there to support his sister who was competing in the same pageant. Eric walked by and LaVell grabbed him by his forearm, asking his name. They connected via Facebook, met for coffee and hot chocolate, and today they are married.
Eric proposed to LaVell on Nov. 28, 2014 during an intimate gathering in Florida. They arrived at LaVell’s godmother’s house and were greeted by his closest friends. He asked them why they were there, and they said, “to celebrate your growth and career.” As they sat in the living room, Eric walked in playing “You and I” by John Legend, the song that LaVell even told Eric he wanted to walk down the aisle to by coincidence. While the song was playing, Eric dropped to one knee and pulled out a ring. It was the surprise of a lifetime to LaVell.
