OUR STORY

Cierra and Stephen have known each other since high school. Stephen cyber stalked Cierra and won her over years later. She knew he was "the one" during a moment on May 17, 2020. She sat on the porch staring at him while he did yard work. She remembers the exact date because of the various pictures she took of him as she sat in awe saying to herself "I'm going to marry him." Stephen & Cierra enjoy doing outdoor activities together such as bike rides, climbing Stone Mountain and finding/walking on trails. They also like to binge watching new Netflix series.

the proposal

I said YES!

DEREK

Derek planned a surprise proposal at Morton's Steakhouse in Cleveland.  Andrea was doubly surprised to find out that he invited close family and friends including her parents to join them for the occasion.  The manager brought the ring out with their cocktails and on que their family and friends entered as he was on one knee. 

ANDREA

We were taking Christmas pictures. Stephen arranged a session at a studio with a photographer. I stressed all week to find us coordinating outfits. That morning, I went to get my makeup done, curled my hair and began to get dressed. He was acting really weird. Jittery. He jumped up saying “I need to go get a car wash” – it was 8am. He was just being really weird. LOL. We began to drive to the photoshoot, and we were being super “mushy”. He wanted to kiss at every red light. Held my hand the entire drive (about 40 mins). We went inside and had a nice family shoot – Stephen Sr., Stephen Jr., and me. After about 30 minutes of taking pictures, I noticed the photographer kept checking his watch. Stephen kept checking the door. IT WAS WEIRD! I thought the shoot was over, so I began gathering our bags when I heard someone open the door. I turned and there’s a man there with a saxophone. I announce “come on guys, the next person is here to have their photo  taken, we have to go”. The man just began playing the saxophone! I thought this is REALLY WEIRD. I turned to the photographer and he just snaps my picture. Now I’m thinking “OH ALL OF YALL ARE WEIRD”, so I snap my head to Stephen. He’s standing there with the biggest smile I’ve ever seen on his face with a pull-up in his hand walking towards me. I burst into laughter – I’m not sure if I was laughing at his smile or the pull-up. At this point I realize what’s going on and the rest was history. I SAID YES!
