"Vaughn and I met on eHarmony!" she explained. "It was my first time dating online. We wrote letters for months before we decided to Skype. And then, of course, met."

Ali and Rasberry got engaged when he took her on a hike in Yosemite through California's redwoods, "which he knows I absolutely love," said Ali. "[He] proposed in the most picturesque clearing. Just the two of us. It was so thoughtful and perfect. We're best friends."

The expecting part, however, was unexpected. The pair were underway with wedding plans when they got the bonus good news. "When we found out we were expecting, our perspective shifted completely," she said. "We want our ceremony to really celebrate our newest blessing!"
