Starting out as friendly acquaintances at work, ShaQuita and Calvin’s relationship grew following a night out with friends. As they stayed up until five in the morning, it was clear sparks were flying between them, and it wasn’t long before their friendship turned into romance. Five happy years later, Calvin decided ShaQuita was the one for him, and enlisted the help of her mother with his surprise proposal. At a family crawfish boil, “surrounded by family and friends that were all in on it,” the future bride said, “Yes,” through tears of joy. Along with 50 close friends and family, ShaQuita and Calvin made their way to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, for a beautiful beach destination wedding. “We were looking for a tropical getaway, especially since Calvin loves the beach,” says the bride. Following their sweet beach ceremony, the lovebirds and their guests feasted on grilled salmon with sweet potatoes and enjoyed serenades from a mariachi band. “The sunset was perfect!” recalls ShaQuita. “If we could do it all over again we wouldn’t change a thing.” See for yourself this lovely couple’s festivities, captured by the talented Houston wedding photography studio Civic Photos!
