Brandon and Iris met while growing up in Ripley Mississippi. Their families have been friends for over 60 years. They reconnected in October 2014 over the love of a mutual book that they were both reading. Iris made a Facebook post while being on a yoga retreat in Jamaica of a picture of her reading this book. Brandon saw the post and reached out! Brandon said, “what girl from my hometown is reading the same book that I am at the same time”! And that’s where the love story began! After the correspondence started getting more frequent, Brandon requested to see Iris. Not thinking he would take her up on it, she told him that he could fly to meet her in NYC on her next business trip. Much to her surprise, he met her in New York City for a weekend they will never forget to see each other for the first time in 20 years! Iris said that she never believed in this before now, but it was love at first sight! They both knew instantly! In June of 2017, after dinner in Paris France, Brandon Roberson surprised Iris Thompson by proposing during a photoshoot at the Eiffel Tower. They are so excited to start the next phase of their lives together and can’t wait to celebrate with you in November!
