When Sabina and Daryl went on their first date, they talked for hours. Their chemistry was instant.
Sabina shares, “Daryl knew I was the one immediately lol. He told me three weeks into knowing me that he loved me and was going to marry me.” He ended up proposing last year on New Year’s Day after a church service. It was the perfect proposal: intimate and sweet.
