Bethanie and Dan

How We Met

Dan and I met our senior year of graduating. I saw him and immediately had a huge crush. We simply became best friends by talking for hours and going on spontaneous adventures!

how they asked

The story began at 7:45 am after driving through the night to reach a trailhead at sleeping bear dunes national lakeshore. He was super energetic and I was just eating a peanut butter sandwhich half asleep on the hike up to the lookout. We’re both nature enthusiasts, and I’m a photographer so we had planned on setting up my tripod and taking photos of us at the top before any other hikers were out, like we often do on our adventures. So I was taking my sweet old time setting up a shot and admiring the vast blue lake, and when I turned around to join him, he was down on one knee, flawless ring in hand. It couldn’t have been more perfect. Now i get to marry my best friend!
