He asked the little girl to accept him as her father. “It has been an honor to call myself your dad. I have watched you grow up and get bigger and bigger every day. You grow more beautiful every day. For the rest of my life, I will always be here for you, to be your friend and your dad. Will you come me your dad?”Brandon said, which made the little girl drop a few tears.
Anastasia had no idea that her groom would deliver such an emotional speech. The act further consolidated her decision to get married to him.
She said: “My heart felt so full, and it just solidified in me that I was making the right decision to spend the rest of my life with this man who not only loved me, but loved my daughter as if she were his own.”
He and Raina hit it off right away when they met for the first time three years ago. They grew so close that it even surprised Anastasia.
She shared: “She was definitely eager for friends being an only child and spending every single day with me, and they hit it off. He was always the person who would go the extra mile and play with her, doing anything and everything she would ask him to.”
She continued: “What he said was so perfect for the two of them and the fact that he had nothing written down and just spoke from his heart really made the whole thing so special. It was amazing to be able to watch the relationship grow into the love that it is today.”
