When Grant Tribbett woke up on the morning of Saturday, May 27, he was ready to propose twice: once to his girlfriend, Cassandra Reschar, and once to her little girl. While some wedding proposals can go terribly wrong, this one really did play out flawlessly. It was downright perfect.
According to Reschar’s How He Asked post, the couple met through Facebook around seven months ago. “As a single mom, it was always a nightmare trying to date as I have full custody of my daughter and very little ‘me’ time,” she wrote. But the two hit it off after they started messaging back and forth, a conversation prompted by Tribbett’s comment about one of her statuses (bold move).
They tackled obstacles such as distance, but, as Reschar wrote, “…with all the life challenges that were brought our way, we have only come out stronger and more in love with one another.”
She continued, “I have gotten to witness an attractive, charming bachelor become a positive, loving and utterly the most selfless father to my little girl.”
The week of the proposal, Tribbett suggested his future fiancé get her nails done. Then, the morning of the big day, he took her and her daughter Adrianna to breakfast, then to Ritchey Woods Nature Preserve not far from where they live in Indiana.
After walking a mile (in heels, no less, Reschar added), he got down on one knee for what she described as one of the best moments of her life.
