We're Getting Married!
Theresa Patel and Marcus Williamson
It was late 2017 when Theresa was celebrating her birthday with girlfriends at her favorite local bar. After making eyes and flirting with the cute new bartender, Marcus, over the course of a few months, she finally mustered up the courage to ask him out.
His reply, “Tomorrow good for you?”
By Christmas, the two were looking at apartments and even adopted a kitten named Hercules. Since then, they’ve been traveling the world and working on getting their businesses off the ground. You can often find the pair taking daily walks around Piedmont Park, indulging in soul food or watching “I Love Lucy” reruns.
On one of their walks around the park, Theresa stopped to take a photo of the sunset and city skyline cascading over the lake. When she turned back around, Marcus was on one knee with a ring in hand. Before he had time to pop the question, Theresa jumped into his arms and eagerly exclaimed, “Yes!”
A year and a half later, they’re ready to tie the knot! The future Williamsons are so excited for their special day and can’t wait to celebrate with family and friends.
