KEY WEST, Fla. (WIAT) — “Two People Fell in Love,” and thanks to Brad Paisley, their special moment Saturday night became even more memorable.

Oneonta native Michael Seth Young met Dina DiMartino in 2010, a year after his move from Alabama to Key West. DiMartino, a New Orleans native, was vacationing at a guesthouse in which Young worked, and the rest was history. She moved to Key West in 2012 to be with him. 

Seven years later, Young decided he wanted to take the next step, so he enlisted the help of country music star Brad Paisley, who was performing at the Key West Songwriters Festival Saturday night. Young came prepared, armed with a poster that read “Help me get her to say yes.” 

Fortunately, Paisley didn’t have to try too hard. Young bent down on one knee, and to the crowd’s delight, DiMartino said yes.

Congrats, Michael and Dina!
