Piedmont Park Engagement | Her prayer ‘Dear God, please bless me with a Christian, generous, kind man who loves Outkast as much as he loves me’. Little did Natalie know that her prayer had been answered over a decade earlier when she met Rashad at a Florida A&M University Atlanta Club meeting. The couple has an ongoing debate about when their first official date took place, at a brunch at iHop or at Tin Lizzy’s, but they agree that on August 3, 2013 the friendship that they had been nurturing for years officially became something more. That Rashad is the #1 Kast fan certainly helped to seal the deal.
Last spring Rashad colluded with some of Natalie’s friends to spring a surprise proposal during the ‘Scandal’ Watch Night that her girlfriends have every Thursday. This proposal happened April 3, 2014 in front of her family and friends. Rashad chose April 3rd because it was their 8th month anniversary and in the Bible the number 8 symbolizes NEW BEGINNINGS. The next chapter of their lives starts with their spring wedding.
