Emily and Gannon met at the Shady Lady Saloon in midtown Sacramento, August of 2011. Emily was sitting at the bar having a drink during happy hour with her friend Kristin and Gannon was sitting next to Emily nursing a beer when he noticed her. Gathering his courage, Gannon struck up a conversation with Emily. They immediately hit it off and continued talking for the rest of the night.
“Gannon surprised Emily by making a beautiful dinner at her house. Then he suggested they go on a walk by the river near Old Sacramento. Emily was sitting down on a bench taking in the river sunset as Gannon opened a bottle of sparkling bubbly. Emily told Gannon he should sit down because she thought he looked nervous. He said “in a minute, I just have to ask you a question first…” Emily couldn’t believe it when he got down on one knee and proposed! Of course she said “yes!” and she loved the ring he placed on her finger.”
Emily, what do you love about Gannon?
“I love that he is pretty easy going for the most part! He always is very supportive of me no matter what. I also love that he is so trustworthy and loyal.”
Gannon, what do you love about Emily?
“I love that Emily makes me a better man. She just doesn’t let anyone into her heart, so I’m a very lucky man that she has blessed me with her friendship and more importantly her love.”
Gannon and Emily, so happy for you two! Congratulations!
