How They Met Camille and Doug were introduced by a mutual friend Nina Brown at a celebrity rapper’s birthday party. At first sight Camille told Nina that Doug would be her husband. After years of courting Doug proposed!

The Proposal Of all the days to propose, I picked New Year's Eve, those last few magical hours where new beginnings are celebrated. Camille had no idea what was about to take place. A couple of days earlier, I reached out to a good friend of mine, Lucky The Jeweler, and talked to him about selecting a piece so unique, only a true princess would be worthy of wearing it. That day I picked up the very thing that would make a statement later in the night, and also change in my life forever. With the confidence of a super hero and the ring in my jacket pocket, we headed to a very special restaurant, Nan. I watched the clock anxiously as we waited to be seated. I thought to myself, "This will be the place I make my announcement to world." However, that wouldn't be the case as we ran into her sister Missy and her husband Leonard which meant one thing –– head to a party after dinner. As we dined, we heard people clapping. We looked over and saw a couple who had just gotten engaged. Camille whispered to me how sweet that was and that she would cry, but didn't want to mess up her lashes! I asked her, "so if I asked you to marry me you wouldn't cry because of your LASHES?!" She replied ohh no! She had no idea what was to come. We all ended up at a New Years party surrounded by some of her close friends. She asked me if I was going to kiss her at midnight? My mouth said of course. My mind said it's going to be a whole lot more than that.She said it's midnight now but it wasn't. Then the countdown began. Here we go. Heart is beating. Blood is pumping. Now is the time I make my move. I said, "reach into my pocket." She did and I believe at that very moment we felt every firework celebration going on around the world. What a special moment.The rest, well, I think we all know how the rest of the story goes.
