Marissa and Toshaun | Engagement - Springfield, MO

These two are absolutely ADORABLE!! I knew Marissa when she attended Evangel University and am so happy she met her future husband Toshaun. The two met at Missouri State University's Chi Alpha. Scroll down to read a few fun facts about their relationship! :) Enjoy! 

"My first impression of Marissa was that she was breathtaking. There was a gathering at my house with the campus ministry we are apart of. I however was about to leave the party to go sleep. However on my way out I saw Marissa and I had to find a way to make myself known so I sat by her and said the cheesiest line I could conjure up."

- Toshaun

"I thought he was charming and hilarious. He sat down next to me and stretched out his arm around me because of the lack of room and said "this is the most comfortable place to put my arm". It was like fireworks went off. Coolest moment of my life."

-Marissa

"Marissa is corky and cute, she has the cutest giggle, and a laugh that can turn your day around. Her accents also will crack anyone up."

-Toshaun

"We want to first and most importantly be led by God. So we are willing to go wherever. I feel that the Lord has called me to the ministry, and Marissa has a desire to work with youth as well, so we are praying that God will open doors for us to be full time youth pastors."

-Toshaun

"I knew a few days after [initial meeting] I loved him and wanted to spend the rest of my life with him. His goals and ambitions for life and his love for Jesus just left me head over heels."

-Marissa

"His sarcasm is hilarious. He always has something witty to say and it's predictably unpredictable. I love it!"

-Marissa

The two both love football...except...they love opposing teams. Marissa is a Steelers fan while Toshaun is a Kansas City Chiefs fan. In fact, the two attended the Chiefs vs Steelers game in October this fall. Although the Chiefs came out with a victory, Marissa said that she still had a lot of fun! I loved shooting these last few photos with Marissa and Toshaun. They are so much fun!
