Earlier this week, the man of my dreams got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. All in one simple “yes”, I said “yes” to love, “yes” to peace, “yes” to faithfulness, “yes” to respect, “yes” to kindness, “yes” to trust, “yes” to patience and “yes” to never settling. Michael, I would’ve married you the first night we hung out because I knew then you were the one. You will always be my most precious example of God’s timing and His love for me. I have found my home in you & will love you with everything I have forever and a day. WE ARE GETTIN’ MARRIED, BABY! 😭❤️ John 13:7 Jesus replied “You don’t understand what I’m doing, but someday you will”. #OMGIHAVEAFIANCE #LOOKATTHATRING

Like Ray, Pearce was over the moon to share in her engagement news, sharing the same photos, plus one of her gorgeous ring.

Announcing “we are gettin’ married, baby,” she wrote “Michael, I would’ve married you the first night we hung out because I knew then you were the one. You will always be my most precious example of God’s timing and His love for me. I have found my home in you and will love you with everything I have forever and a day.”

The two first went public with their relationship in July 2018 with a sweet photo from backstage at the Grand Ole Opry. After weeks of flirting back and forth on Instagram, the two announced their relationship by simply writing “And then one random night at the Nashville Palace changed everything.”
