Sarah Reisinger and Brian Baker are excited to announce their engagement.
Sarah remembers the day she saw him. She wanted to talk to him but shied away for a long time. As she became more interested a mutual friend of theirs made the introduction. About two weeks after they started seeing each other Sarah had to move two-and-a-half hours away. It was the hardest thing she had to do, but knew it would make or break their relationship. They never gave up on each other and Sarah really believes that is what built their relationship.
After several months’ the decision was made that she would move back. With Brian’s three kids and Sarah’s child, they decided to move in together after talking to all their kids first. The kids were just as excited as they were about this big change. It was really rough at first, they made it and learned a lot about each other in that time.
Sarah and Brian’s birthdays are a few days apart. Brian asked Sarah to make reservations at Final Cut as they both had been wanting to go there. The reservation was made for Sept. 5, 2018, and turned into a day to remember. Deep down Sarah was hoping for the engagement to happen and was fully prepared for this moment. The morning of Sept. 5, they received a devastating phone call, Brian’s mother had passed away bringing all their plans to a stop. After a long day of tears and phone calls Sarah and Brian decided to still go out to eat just to get some food and get things off their minds. As Sarah was finishing getting ready to go out Brian walked up to her and said he wanted to give her a gift. Brian blindfolded Sarah and she was excited, thinking it was a puppy! After getting what Brian needed he asked Sarah to remove the blindfold and there he was on one knee. This was the greatest moment of her life! Brian said, “Knowing my mom, she would have wanted me to keep my plans and live on as planned.” They will always remember and cherish this day forever.
