Carly Pearce and Michael Ray Are Engaged

Ray Proposes in Tulum, Mexico

Carly Pearce and Michael Ray are heading down the aisle and broke the news in arguably two of the sweetest social media posts ever.

Ray proposed to Pearce on Wednesday (Dec. 19) while on vacation in Tulum, Mexico, but both waited until the holiday weekend to share the news online.

Ray writes, “You are the biggest blessing I have and will ever receive. You are my best friend, my partner in crime, my workout, grilled chicken, wine-drinking, classic country Opry loving, Nashville Palace hanging, Publix grocery shopping, This Is Us watching, living room late night dancing, laugh until we cry soul mate.

“I’m glad we have forever together my love cause it is gonna take every second of it for you to understand how much I truly adore, respect, honor and love you!”

Earlier this week, the man of my dreams got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. All in one simple "yes", I said "yes" to love, "yes" to peace, "yes" to faithfulness, "yes" to respect, "yes" to kindness, "yes" to trust, "yes" to patience and "yes" to never settling. Michael, I would've married you the first night we hung out because I knew then you were the one. You will always be my most precious example of God's timing and His love for me. I have found my home in you & will love you with everything I have forever and a day. WE ARE GETTIN' MARRIED, BABY! ❤️ John 13:7 Jesus replied "You don't understand what I'm doing, but someday you will". #OMGIHAVEAFIANCE #LOOKATTHATRING
