Paul and Joni have been married for 39 years, but when they very first decided to get married, there was no marriage proposal. Paul decided that he wanted to surprise his wife with the proposal that she never had! How sweet is that? They took a carriage ride through downtown when the driver said she had to pull over and adjust the horses reigns. Paul escorted Joni out of the carraige and then proceeded to get down on one knee and propose with a brand knew ring. She was so surprised! We spent a few minutes in the Water Gardens and she was still in shock the whole time! He did a fantastic job of surprising her and now she has a beautiful proposal story. Congratulations to Paul and Joni on 39 wonderful years!
