Mr. Baker is an actor living in Los Angeles and as a result the couple had been in a long distance relationship. Ms. Nifong was a graphic designer at the University of Virginia "until this month," which I take to mean that she'll be moving elsewhere. Most likely LA. Their meeting was cute--set up by parents of a friend--and their proposal is even cuter (in a barn, in front of a horse).
I guess I'm picking this announcement because it has always been a fantasy of mine to lock eyes with a performer on stage and feel like they're performing for me and only me.
Congrats to the happy couple!
