Country Weddings and Engagements in 2012: Danny Gokey and Leyicet Peralta
After a short engagement, Danny Gokey and Leyicet Peralta married in Florida on Jan. 29. It was a small wedding, with about 100 close friends and family members looking on as the couple pledged their love. It's the second marriage for Gokey, after his first wife, Sophia, died in 2008 following a routine surgery for congenital heart disease. Both halves of the new couple are very active in a charity in Sophia's honor, called Sophia's Heart. Gifts were made as donations to the children's charity.
