Brian Cannizzaro Steet Naming Ceremony

Brian Cannizzaro, 30, went "above and beyond" in everything he did, said his wife Jacqueline Cannizzaro. The night Cannizzaro, a firefighter, proposed marriage, they had gone to see the Broadway production of "Beauty and the Beast." Cannizzaro had arranged to have the prince in the show propose for him while he waited on bended knee with a ring. Unbeknownst to his future bride, their families were also in the audience.
"It was the most magical, amazing night. It was just perfect. He is my prince," Jacqueline Cannizzaro said. The couple, who married in 1998, have a 1-year-old son.
