iris - pence and panache featured brideHow you met your fiancé? Home Church in Fort Worth, Texas

How did he propose?  We had been dating for about 6 years and a few years back we buried a silver ring at the Fort Worth Trinity Park. On January 23, 2016 we went back “for a walk”, and while he reminded me about the ring we had buried as we reached the tree it was buried under and got down on one knee. He had gone the day before to dig it out but unfortunately wasn’t found. While on his knee he said, “I came yesterday and couldn’t find it, so I got you a new one. Will you marry me?”
