Valentine’s Day was a special day for lovers all over the A. But today was even more special for an Atlanta area couple who awoke to learn that they had won an all-expenses paid wedding courtesy of Essence magazine.

Eugene T. Glover & Kendra Shuler, both Atlanta educators, beat out 5 other couples nationwide to take the Grand prize in Essence magazine’s “Will You Marry Me” wedding contest sponsored by Tiffany jewelers and Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines.
