Tell us about the first time you two met!
"We met briefly at a church retreat in the beginning of high school but, we didn't really get to know each other until our senior year. We started dating in 2002."

What is your idea of the "perfect" date?
"Enjoying a nice bottle of wine on the beach one evening. Maybe there's live music somewhere off in the distance..."

What is the one thing about your wedding you are the most excited for?
"Gathering all of our favorite people in one spot, enjoying company, good food, refreshments and music."

Tell us about your proposal!!
"We were snowshoeing over sleep bear dunes and there's a huge overlook on Lake Michigan where we carved our initials and froze a little together. The was slanted and icy so we had to crawl off, which was hysterical... We were just starting to hike back and Art "fell down" (he says on purpose, I say it was real) and asking if I would spend the rest of my life with him. I screamed and jumped into his arms. I left my glove off the entire way down the path, showing everyone that 'WE'RE ENGAGED!'"
