Yohanna and Dominick's Marriage Proposal at Church

Marriage Proposal at ChurchHow we met: I (Yohanna) was working in a woman’s clothing store when Dominick walked in. As soon as I saw him I was instantly attracted, and I had to know who he was.  Some time passed and I was browsing on Facebook when I noticed my best friends friend was tagged in a picture with “Dominick Dunston”. Being the bold person I am, I sent him a friend request which he accepted. After the friend request being accepted I discovered he was in a relationship, so I definitely did not further any sort of contact. Dominick stayed lingering as “the Facebook friend I never talked to”…until one day his status changed. A couple of months after getting to know each other he asked me to be his girlfriend and everything is just history from there.

Thank you social network world!

How he asked: For what seems like weeks ago, we were scheduled to sing a song at our church for Sunday service. I said to myself “I have such a busy schedule these past two weeks, how am I ever going to squeeze in time to practice with Dominick” ? Well lets just say I found the time, and practiced all weekend before the big duet on Sunday February 23, 2014..

We both stood in front of the whole church while the soundtrack started playing. The intro ended, which meant Dominick had to start off the song, and he didn’t. “How could he mess up, we’ve ONLY been practicing all weekend”, I thought to myself. Dom says “please stop the soundtrack, I’m a little nervous”, he continues to say ” ok play it again”. This time, a completely different soundtrack started playing, let’s just say I was beyond confused.

Dominick started to sing the song he dedicated to me when we first started dating, titled “Angel” from Casting Crowns & that’s when I just knew. I started to cry and cry, oh and did I mention cry?

There is a part of the song that says “With a sacred promise and a ring that says it all, oh I’ve just begun to fall, and from the deepest part of me I say I do”, well right at that exact part, my sister walked in with the ring as another girl walked in with a beautiful bouquet of pink flowers (my favorite color). This moment was so surreal, just so magical. I couldn’t ask for a better husband to be.
