Raven has always been one of Tracy's biggest supporters, even when it comes to his daredevil ways. "I love to try new adventures, like anything from sightseeing to my adrenaline junky moments, and Raven is always with me," he says. "She’s my biggest fan."

Tracy says it was Raven's honesty that really made her stand out from the rest. "From day one she, kept it 100-percent real with me," he says. "From the first two words she spoke to me, until now, I get the same goofy, whiny, affectionate, woman that I fell in love with that night at the beach."

Raven remembers the exact moment that she knew Tracy was the one. "I got offered a promotion in Dallas where Tracy is from and I had to make the difficult decision to leave my family," she says. "He was so patient and understanding and made my move seamless. He even flew to D.C. to drive me all the way back."

The happy couple dated for two and a half years before Tracy popped the question. "About a year ago, we were watching a movie and I took a picture of the TV screen and said that when the time came to get engaged what was the ring I want," shares Raven. "He saved it and got the exact replica."

"I know this sounds cliché, but I am genuinely looking forward to growing old with Raven," says the groom-to-be. "I admire couples in their 80s that still travel, go to the mall and go out on dates. I look at them and just pray I am able to endure a lifelong roller coaster of ups and down with Raven right next to me." After the soon-to-be newlyweds exchange vows, Tracy will whisk Raven away to a surprise location for their honeymoon. Want to see your engagement photos featured in Just Engaged? Email us now!
