An Engagement Story
Gabrielle Murray (24) of College Park, Ga. and Trevor Brand (23) of Dickson, Tn. are proud to announce their fall engagement. The two met in February of 2015 at a social event. After meeting they kept in touch over social media and saw each other at various events, but it wasn’t until Trevor asked Gabrielle to take her on a one on one outing that she realized he wanted to be more than friends. A native of College Park, Gabrielle was proud to show off her South Fulton roots and Trevor immediately fell in love with the city and moved to Georgia soon after.
Gabrielle is a student at John Marshall Law School in Atlanta and plans to practice juvenile law. She is also the current Miss Black Georgia US Ambassador where her platform “FOSTERED” focuses on helping children in foster care find a forever home and understand the emotions that come along with their situations. Trevor is currently an Outreach and Enrollment Coordinator for Erlanger Health Systems where he focuses on getting under-represented community members registered for healthcare and gives them the ability to receive adequate services at a low cost.
Outside of work and school, the pair love to try pizza parlors. One of their favorite places is Oz Pizza in East Point near Tri-Cities High School, where Gabrielle graduated in 2011. Gabrielle and Trevor fell in love through their common interests of community, music, and their ability to laugh in any situation. Trevor asked Gabrielle to spend their lives together on October 29, 2016. He was able to pull off a surprise proposal by leading her on a scavenger hunt around the city, ending with a dinner of close friends and family and Trevor on one knee. The couple plans to tie the knot in 2018 in the historic College Park area.
