Tell us about the proposal:
We were having a barbeque for the parents to meet each other and just as we were about to sit down for dinner Devon wanted to thank everyone for coming together for a great evening and that’s when he knelt down on one knee in front of our families. Everyone was in tears except for Tamra who was laughing of embarrassment but was super excited.
