I think the videos and smiles say it all! We absolutely love the proposal and are thrilled to welcome Richard as our son-in-law. We are so happy for them both.
On March 12th, 2016 Richard Brandon Neri asked our daughter Bekah for her hand in marriage while running a 15K. (As of the Tuesday prior, we knew it was going to happen, and we were bursting at the seams with excitement!) It was Bekah’s seventh year running the Gate River Run in Jacksonville, Florida. The race has always been her favorite. This was Richard’s first time running the Gate, just in time for a proposal. The proposal was amazing, thoughtful, sweet, exciting and totally a surprise to Bekah! Richard did an amazing job setting it up and recording it with his Go Pro.
The video is part official Gate video with Richard’s Go Pro shots incorporated. David Armstrong with RunFlix did an amazing job and I’m so grateful for this work. The second video shared here includes the amazing woman Richard asked to record the proposal. She was so sweet and I’m truly grateful to her for capturing such a sweet moment.
