Congratulations to Savannah Daigle, of Orlando, for winning our Best Marriage Proposal Contest for Valentine’s Day.
Here is Savannah’s story of how she was proposed to:
“My husband, Jonathan, and I were kayaking at one of our favorite spots: the Rainbow River in Dunnellon. We were gliding through the crystal-clear water when we rowed into a secluded pond area off the main waterway. A large wooden dock stood opposite us on the far side of the pond, and as we neared it, we were greeted with turtles and cormorants swimming underneath our oars. Once we had climbed up onto the dock, Jonathan took a green jewelry box out of his backpack that held a genuine antique engagement ring from the 1930s. Then, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him! After I said "Yes!" I learned that wasn't the only surprise for the day. My new fiancé had a photographer secretly capture the proposal, and we spent the afternoon taking our engagement pictures at Rainbow Springs State Park where we used beautiful waterfalls as a backdrop. We got married exactly one year after he proposed, on July 19, 2014.”
As winners, Savannah and Jonathan will enjoy a prize package that includes dinner for two, flowers from Shaw’s Florist of Winter Garden and a box of candy.
Congrats to the Daigles and thank you to everyone who entered!
