Casie and Raymond
How We Met
Ray and I met in 2009 while working together at Carrabba’s. We were friends for a few years before realizing our friendship could be something more, and in 2013, we went on our first date to Boca in Tampa on Platt Street, which is still one of our favorite spots for dinner dates! We love Disney, traveling, and our fur kids!
How He Asked
Ray told me he won a hot air balloon ride in a raffle at work, and I completely believed his white lie. There are weekly drawings for events all over Tampa, like concerts, sporting events, etc., at his job, so it wasn’t completely unbelievable that he may have won this – not to mention he is one of the luckiest people I know! I was completely surprised, and just before taking off in the hot air balloon, Ray asked, and I said yes!
