Wedding plans are underway for a Tennessee couple who's engagement was almost put on hold after the couples ring was lost in the ocean.

Luckily, a good samaritan from Florence found the ring while on vacation.

Sandy Osborn told waay31 the ring washed up right under her beach chair on Panama City Beach. It was in a plastic bag with a bank card, and drivers license.

She was able to get it back to the groom and watch the proposal.

"Its hard to describe. It's an amazing story. The fact that I found the ring and I was able to get it back to them and to know that I played such a big part is truly amazing," Sandy Osborn told WAAY.

Osborn also told us she's been invited to the couples wedding and she hopes they have it back in Florida.
