Earlier this week, #ForeverDuncan began trending around the Internet. It’s a gorgeous Instagram story of two people, Alfred and Sherrell Duncan, getting engaged and married on the same day. It doesn’t seem like Sherrell had to wear her engagement ring very long.
According to the Huffington Post, the couple, who have been together since 2013, started their day out on a competitive date day. Sherrell had to do everything Alfred suggested, and Alfred took her phone so he could document the day without her being able to tell what he was doing.
The first stop of the day was a restaurant, where Alfred left Sherrell to go to a backroom where her family and friends were hiding. He readied the room, then sent Sherrell’s daughter out to get her mom. When she came back to the room, he proposed! Check out the original Instagram video here.
The next stop was a hotel. Sherrell was greeted there by her best friends and a team of stylists. This team included a makeup artist, a hair stylist, and wardrobe. She was fitted with a black lace two-piece dress (unbeknownst to her, her wedding dress) and had everything done.
After that, it was on to the wedding, where Sherrell was blindfolded and brought down the aisle by her father. With all her loved ones around her, as “I’ll Be Loving You Always” by Stevie Wonder began playing, Sherrell broke down in tears of joy.
Sherrell said: "He knows my heart, he knows I didn’t want to plan a wedding. I just wanted to go to the justice of the peace and for him to be my husband."
If that’s not the feel-good story of the day, I don’t know what is.
