Raeann and Danny

How We Met

Danny and I met through mutual friends and instantly had a connection. From there, as they say, “the rest is history”. We have been together for about three and a half years now he is my best friend in the entire world. He knows me better than anyone and is the most selfless and loving person I have ever met.

My favorite thing about our relationship is that we can be silly and laugh about anything. They say you’re supposed to marry the person that you can have fun in the grocery store with, and believe it or not that’s our favorite place to go on a date, so I guess that’s how I knew he was the one :)

(just kidding, it was way more romantic than that!) have been having so much fun planning our wedding and we can’t wait for the day to actually get here!

How He Asked

Danny proposed to me at my mom and step-dad’s wedding reception. Everyone there knew about it, besides me. My mom told me that she wanted me to dance with Mark (my stepdad) first before they had their first dance so that my grandma and older family members could see it before they left the reception. I thought it was kind of weird that she wanted me to dance with Mark before they had their first dance of their own, but I never thought that Danny would propose so that was the last thing I suspected. As Mark and I were dancing, Danny asked to cut in and the sing changed to “Tie Me Down” by Taylor Holbrook.

Raeann's Proposal in Owatta River Yacht Club - Toledo, Ohio

He timed the proposal to the end of the song lyrics about putting a ring on the finger he’s been wrapped around. And at the end of the song he got down on one knee.

I was so shocked and happy that I instantly started sobbing and I don’t think I could even get the words out to say yes!
