“I wanted to create something that would be very nostalgic and encapsulating all the things we had done together,” Hernandez told InsideEdition.com. “I genuinely wanted to make the moment unique.”

Months ago, he decided to illustrate a children’s book. The main characters would be two rabbits that retell memorable moments in their relationship.

“Some of the bigger moments, was the memory about the amusement park,” Hernandez explained. “She and I had gone to Disneyland and it started raining. Everyone else was running for cover and we sat in the rain together.”

After putting the book together using illustrations he made on Photoshop, Hernandez said he then talked to other staff at her school, who suggested they get together for a staff meeting, where they would ask Goldsmith to read aloud a book.

“She did catch on a little earlier than expected,” he said. “As soon as she saw the first page, she started putting together what was going on.”

Either way, she said yes and the pair plans to get married later this summer.
