Toni & JD’s Sunrise Proposal

This Shane Co. couple’s picturesque proposal was so beautiful, we just had to share it!

Toni and JD met through mutual friends while Toni was working part-time at a restaurant. She gave JD her number, but did not hear back from him for over a year! After their first date, Toni says she was certain that JD was the one she had waited her whole life for. Their relationship quickly became serious, and soon they were talking about marriage. Although they knew they would get married one day, Toni had no idea when JD would propose.


This past fall, the two took a trip to see the leaves change in the Smoky Mountains. In the early morning, they hiked up to the highest point in the park to watch the sunrise. When they got to a beautiful viewing spot, JD got down on one knee and asked Toni to marry him! She of course said “yes!” and her son, who was hiking with them, caught the magical moment on camera. The group celebrated by hiking to a waterfall and spent the rest of the weekend admiring the beauty of the Smoky Mountains.


JD wanted the proposal to be a complete surprise, so he visited Shane Co. alone to find the perfect ring for Toni. After telling an associate about her style, they found a trendy halo ring setting and picked out a sparkling emerald cut diamond. Toni says it is her dream ring!

The newly engaged couple has not picked a wedding date, but they plan to get married in Louisville. We’re so excited for this wonderful couple and couldn’t be happier to be a part of their love story!
