Some may not believe in “love at first sight,” but it only took one glance to spark the romance between Ebony Office and Christopher King. The couple met at work when Ebony caught her beau-to-be doing a double take as she walked through the door. Soon after, Chris asked her out on a date, and the two bonded over conversation and a mutual craving for hot wings. From that point on, they knew it was meant to be.

A year and a half later, Chris had planned the perfect proposal. First, he laid out two outfits for Ebony surrounded by rose petals and a note to be dressed and ready at 7 pm sharp. Upon walking outside, Ebony was greeted by a chauffeur who drove the couple to a romantic dinner. Afterwards, the two shared a moonlit gondola ride in Los Colinas. In the midst of the ride, the gondolier grasped a message in a bottle from the water. It read, “I have always desired the best for my life. Now I’ve found it in you, I don’t want to let it go. Will you marry me?” By the time Ebony had finished reading, Chris was down on one knee, presenting her with a beautiful engagement ring.

Ebony, who studied business administration at Paul Quinn College, works at Better than Before. Chris, now working at Microsoft, received his degree in business administration and computer science from Drake University. The couple will marry on July 3, 2012 at the Piazza in the Village in Colleyville, Texas with daughter Morgan King at their side.

    Congratulations Chris and Ebony. Having known Chris since he was a little boy, I believe that he has heard the voice of the Holy Spirit in his selection of a wife. You are truly blessed as you give your hand and heart to Chris. His heart is pure and so is his belief in God as the Father, Jesus Christ, The Son and the Holy Spirit. May God bless this union.
