Part 1 of Marquitta & Justin is here
The reason I wanted to break this in two post is this beautiful story to follow:
“I had always loved Justin…
I told him that I wanted to marry him and didn’t care if I had a ring or not,
I would marry him with only a string on my finger if I had to…
It didn’t surprise me when he proposed with a string…
Because I love him with all my heart I fought back tears and said yes, hoping that by the time we had an official wedding ceremony, that we would exchange gold bands.
Justin proposed to me traditionally, on one knee.
He tied a string to my finger and smiled.
I was so happy that I hugged him tightly as I said yes.
As I pulled away I saw a glimpse of a ring tied to the end of the string.
I was too scared to look at it so I held it in my hand tightly for about five minutes.
I finally opened my hand and saw a beautiful diamond ring with blue sapphires.”
