Marisa and Daniel

How We Met

Dan and I met the way most people meet these days, Bumble. On our first date Dan took me to play miniature golf and get ice cream. We laughed and talked all evening, it felt like we had known one another for years. When I got home that night I told my roommate I was going to marry him.

How They Asked

My birthday is the first week in December so Dan told me we were going to do a “staycation” the following weekend. He said he planned dinner with a few friends and we would stay at a new hotel downtown Grand Rapids. Once we checked into the hotel, Dan wanted to go look at the Christmas lights around the city. He took me to the well known “Blue Bridge” because it was supposed to be lit up. We got there and it was pitch black!

I was so confused as to why we stood there in the dark, then Dan started telling me about how much he loves me and he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. We went to dinner after and all of our friends and family from out of town, even out of state were there to celebrate with us. Still to this day he is mad the bridge lights weren’t on!
