Meet Quiana and Anthony, a couple who are as cool as they are stylish. The couple met in 2009, while they were both valeting their vehicles. Anthony spotted Quiana, who was on her way to dinner with a friend and said “If he wants to see you happy you should come with me.” Those velvety smooth lines led to the exchanging of phone numbers, followed by a date the very next day. The two have been inseparable ever since their chance meeting three years ago and are looking forward to spending the rest of their lives together. Check out their super chic engagement shoot captured by Atlanta based photographer Derek Wintermute.

The Engagement Story From the Bride-to-Be:
“My 30th birthday was in October so we decided to take a trip to Cancun to celebrate. I was under the impression that we were going for a walk on the beach before heading out for the night. Along the walk I saw what appeared to be some candles in the sand. I told Anthony oh we need to go in another direction because I didn’t want to interrupt someone else’s evening. Well we continued to walk and I approached the candles in the sand they read “Will You Marry Me!” I turned to look at Anthony and he dropped down on one knee and proposed. Of course I said yes and we had a romantic dinner on the beach. It was so thoughtful and such a perfect way to celebrate my 30th birthday.”
We wanted something that would be different and show our style. So we thought what better way than to watch ourselves like we are watching a movie. We wanted to set the theme for the glamorous wedding to come.
“We are both looking forward to saying our vows in front of our friends and family, and most importantly taking those vows before God.”
Wedding location: Kent Rock Manor in Loganville, GA
Wedding theme: We wanted a very classy and timeless wedding.
Congrats to Quiana and Anthony on their engagement! We wish you both the best of luck in life and love!
