Before we tell you all about Hannah and Devin Ashcraft's country club wedding, congratulations are in order: These two celebrated their first wedding anniversary on Sunday! Kudos, Hannah and Devin, and may your marriage be as lovely as your wedding.
Devin popped the question to Hannah on a family vacation to Disney World, where they were celebrating their son's 5th birthday. During family photos, Devin asked Hannah if there was anything that could make the trip better. "Of course I said no," says Hannah. "He … got down on one knee and said, 'What about this?' " After opening the ring box, he asked Hannah if she would marry him. Looks like for this family, Disney World really was the happiest place on Earth!
The wedding took place a mere five months later; an impressive feat, especially considering the level of detail that went into planning the event. The couple created a painting in lieu of a more traditional unity ceremony, and Devin called their son up to the altar after he and Hannah read their vows to each other. Devin then read a set of vows just for the lil' guy, promising to be the best father that he could and to always be there for him. Excuse us while we find a tissue…
