Nicole and Mark

How We Met

Mark was on the water with his nephew helping him fish when I first saw him. I took the first chance I got to talk to him and we hit it off immediately.

how they asked

Mark and I are so goofy together. And him proposing was just the same. It was really cold outside, and I hear a knock on the door, after opening it I see him standing there in this huge coat (its February and feels like -50 outside). He comes in and immediately starts getting serious and I knew something was off, but I played it off because I didn’t want him to know that I could tell. He said I showed him how we were home wherever we are together, and that he loved me and he wanted to spend his life with me. I was so in shock, he’s always been so sweet to me, but I still wasn’t used to the attention and kind words…so I stood there, blushing the whole time while staring at him in all his winter gear. He practically got down on one knee as soon as he got into the door! He asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. Of course I said yes! Looking back on it now it was simple and goofy, it wasn’t by any means a fairy tale engagement. But the right person makes those moments and material things special just by being a part of it.
