Alumni Win #MarryMeInNashville Contest

Belmont alumni Marcus and L.A. were recently named Union Station’s #MarryMeInNashville contest winners. As the grand prize recipients, the couple will receive credit toward their reception at the venue, a night’s stay at the hotel and a limo ride to the airport, among other things.

A music business major at Belmont in 2004, L.A met Marcus, a commerical music major, during their time on campus, but the two were never close. It wasn’t until she returned to Nashville, after working in California, to pursue a degree in counseling that the couple reconnected at their church, Nashville Life Christian Church.

In an interview recently published on Style Home Page, the couple credited their relationship and the growth they’ve experienced individually and together to their relationship with God. “We both feel that as our foundation in God became central to our lives, independent of each other, our eyes were opened as we began to see life much differently than before,” Marcus said.

L.A. described her love for Marcus in Style’s interview saying, “I have no doubts that he is the perfect man for me. He loves and follows God with his whole heart, he knows who he is, knows how to lead, he is smart, kind, patient, loving, humble, funny and really just extremely good looking. I love him so much and can’t wait to be his wife!”

After getting engaged Cheekwood, almost a year to the day of their first date, L.A. found Union Station’s contest via social media. Knowing their dream wedding wouldn’t be possible without a “dream wedding sweepstakes,” L.A. was quick to enter. The two were selected as the winning couple and are currently planning their big day for October 1, complete with a dream honeymoon to San Jose del Cabo
