Faith and Daniel

How We Met

Daniel and I met in college. We both showed up to town a couple weeks before classes started for work obligations that each of us had. We both attended the opening soccer game, and a mutual friend introduced us. That night we all ended up going to the store together to grab some “beginning-of-the-year necessities,” and the rest is history!

How They Asked

Daniel came up with the dreamiest proposal I ever could’ve imagined! Both of our families had planned to go on vacation in Gatlinburg, TN. Daniel called me during our “travel day” and asked if my family wanted to come over for dinner when we got there. Of course my family said yes, so we went to their cabin for dinner — or so I thought… When we got to the cabin, I knocked on the door and his mom answered and didn’t say a word. I noticed that there we’re rose petals and floating candles lining a pathway leading to the back porch. When I got to the end of the pathway, I found Daniel standing in a heart of rose petals with the beautiful Smoky Mountains in the distance. As if this wasn’t all dreamy enough, I heard the song we both love playing in the background. That evening, with tears , Daniel told me that he didn’t want to walk through life without me. He got down on one knee and asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Of course I said yes! The entire proposal was a huge surprise to me. I never would have guessed that he would propose at his family’s cabin with each of our families peeking through the windows.
