Dan & Brooklyn / by Lexilu Photos

Dan and Brooklyn lived just miles away and knew each other casually.  However, it was not until they both volunteered as Regular Pioneers that they would get to know each other.  If you have ever had the privilege to Regular Pioneer, you know the love, dedication and long hours it involves.  Hours in the company of others day.  Hours at your best, and hours at your worst.  This is how Dan and Brooklyn really got to know each other, and from there fell in love. 

Dan's story on their wedding blog is very romantic and touching...just don't tell him I said so, he's kind of a private guy with a terrific sense of humor, who is very comfortable in front of the camera...as long as he's making funny faces at it!  :DBrooklyn is a natural in front of the lens, who's beautiful vibrant red hair match her personality.   From the moment you meet see them together you know that together is where they belong. 

Dan knew that Brooklyn was the one, and wanted to do things right.  First, he designed the ring...yep!  I'll say that slower.  HE. DESIGNED. THE. RING.  It is beautiful!  Multiple hearts interlocking and topped off with his grandmothers diamond. 

Only thing left to do...ask her!

Dan and Brooklyn plan to continue volunteering and one day hope to be caretakers of the Belleville Assembly Hall where they both worked on construction projects.  This would be the place Dan would ask Brooklyn to be his wife. 

The day finally arrived and both Dan and Brooklyn were scheduled to work at Belleville.  The day had finally arrived for Dan to ask her to be his wife.  He had the perfect gal, the perfect ring the perfect moment....would she say yes?
