Family Heirloom Groom's Ring

"I knew the exact spot I wanted to ask Dawn to marry me," Carson says. "My grandfather was once the mayor of my hometown, and helped establish some beautiful places during his tenure. He established Lake Arcadia, just outside Edmond, Oklahoma. This lake has dense woods, beautiful red-rock canyons and quaint little campsites."
