Their union came at a time when the entire world crumbled due to the coronavirus pandemic, but as the dashing groom, Raymond Santana, believes: “no one is promise [sic] tomorrow.. Love is life and I’m gonna live it to its fullest.”

A SWEET ENGAGEMENT

The couple first confirmed their relationship in October of last year despite posting photos with each other online.

Davis revealed that the Central Park Five survivor put her in the friend zone during their first meeting.

Two months later, Santana popped the question at a restaurant, to which his now-wife gave her sweet yes.

FROM FRIENDZONE TO LOVERS

Although Santana did not go into detail about how they first met, it took time before their relationship turned into romance.

Davis revealed that the Central Park Five survivor put her in the friend zone during their first meeting. However, her partner clarified that he was preoccupied at that time but wanted to take her out.

Santana was among the five men wrongfully convicted for an attack in Central Park, which caused him time behind bars.

He and the other men involved were later declared a free and given $7 million after the real culprits confessed to the crime.
