Daniel failed his junior history class. The story would end there if he weren’t forced to retake it the next year!

The Bride Sarah Whiteley, 28, third-grade teacher The Groom Daniel Coppersmith, 28, accountant The Date June 28 Twelve years later, Dan asked Sarah to go on a walk with the two dogs they now shared. When they got to a streetlight, Dan stopped. Sarah, clueless about his plan, kept walking.
