Once Upon a Time, as the sun glowed its last splashes of orange and red above a small watercraft floating off the coast of St. Lucia in the Caribbean Sea, a boy knelt on one knee and whispered to a girl, “Will you?” And with that — Paul and Elizabeth Farrell, of Auburn, proclaim the engagement of their daughter, Jennifer Meghan Farrell, to Jershon K. St. Mark, son of Edlyn Severin, of Brooklyn.

Ms. Farrell is a graduate of Auburn High School and SUNY Oswego. She is employed as the property manager of Oswego Hamilton Homes, managed by Housing Visions. She is also a videographer for Video Network, LLC in Syracuse.

Mr. St. Mark, a graduate of Washington Irving High School in New York City, and SUNY Oswego, is employed as the general manager and V.P. of business development at Fajita Grill, Oswego.

The kingdom announces that the fairy tale will continue with a wedding in the fall of 2017.
