Roshal and Zwade were both students at Emery University, but the campus is so large, they had never crossed paths. A smart mutual friend had a hunch that they’d be perfect together and decided to set them up on a date. You know how the rest of the story goes. Now, the happy couple are headed to the altar this winter. Share their love!
“He is a true partner in my life. He is loving, kind and supportive – all the things you want your husband to be,” says Roshal. “He will make an excellent father to our children. But most importantly, he inspires me to be the best version of myself.”
“If you’re spying on us on a Friday night, you’ll probably catch us hanging out with friends over dinner and drinks,” says Roshal. “We consider ourselves adventurous eaters, and one of our favorite things to do is to try out new restaurants with our friends.”
“We got engaged at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens,” Roshal says of the special day. "He tipped me off when he insisted that I wear heels and dress up for what was supposed to be a trek through the gardens with his family.
Roshal Erskine, 29, and Zwade Marshall,29, met through a mutual friend in the summer of 2008. He works as a resident physician and she as an attorney. “I think he chose to marry me because he is completely himself around me,” says Roshal. “His job requires him to be very serious, and he is silly at heart. I bring more of that out of him.”
During a trip to Jamaica to visit her parents, Roshal said Zwade had a private conversation with her parents about his intentions. “It was out of character for him, but he achieved the intended result,” Roshal says. “It put their minds completely at ease.”
