Arkansas Engagement: Jazmin Harris & Jakeel McClure
Jazmin Harris of Jacksonville and Little Rock native Jakeel McClure are tying the knot! And soon! The two will wed this Saturday, August 1, at the First Pentecostal Church in Sherwood, followed by a reception at the Greens at North Hills.
This couple just glows in their happy engagement sesh with Lacey West Media! We even love the little blush-worthy moments in Jazmin's telling of their sweet story.
We met at Arkansas State University in Jonesboro. I am a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc. and Jakeel is a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc. We both attended an NPHC meeting for our organizations and I couldn't stop staring at him during the meeting. Jakeel finally caught me looking, and my nerves shook so bad that I ended up winking at him! Talk about embarrassing! After that, we ended up communicating on Twitter, exchanged numbers and have been inseperable ever since.
On Jakeel's birthday, April 6, 2014, we met at Copeland's to celebrate his special day. Little did I know, he had other plans. We ate a three-course meal, and when it was time for dessert, the waiter brought out an oreo cheesecake. Right when I was about to take a bite, Jakeel slid a box on the table, opend it and got on one knee. I was so surprised that it took me awhile to respond, but of course I said YES!
